My Last Hundred Bucks: Coffee and Christmas Presents

Where’d your last hundo go, Katie Loeb?

$6, Coffee and a muffin

$0, Illegal download of I Give It a Year, starring Rose Byrne, Anna Farris, and the hot dude from Devil Wears Prada. It’s a British romcom, so it’s not very romantic, it’s about a married couple who get married and both immediately start having emotional affairs—instantly! It’s a fantastic film.

$2, Coffee and a pocket danish.

$48, Pendleton dash USA dot com. I bought my sister a Pendleton towel for Christmas. She’s going to love it.

20 GBP, which is like thirty bucks or something, a lyric book from Art Brut/Eddie Argos for my brother on Indiegogo. I only paid enough for the book, but I really wanted to also get a painting that said, “Death to everything but guitar music.” I didn’t though.

$6, a frenchie from Murray’s Cheese. Ham and brie and mustard and cornichons, it’s on a baguette. It’s an okay sandwich. I once found a bandaid on it. They were so appalled they didn’t know what to do, but then they figured it out and made me a new sandwich. There was a line but I was like, do you mind if I check it out? I’m sure there is only one bandaid, but I’d feel more comfortable if I checked it out. No bandaid.

$98, Duck Boots from L.L. Bean dot com because it was raining. It stopped raining before I got them.


Katie Loeb lives in New York.

Simon something? Simon Baker!

Are you seriously referring to Simon Baker as “the hot dude from Devil Wears Prada”?!! He was such a sleazeball! Adrian Grenier is clearly the hot dude from Devil Wears Prada.

@bgprincipessa Adrian Grenier from Entourage- FROM ENTOURAGE- is your choice for the non-sleazeball in that film?

@EM no, no, no Adrian Grenier is definitely the hot dude from the Devil Wears Prada, which is not mutually exclusive with being a sleazeball, or with being the hot dude from Entourage.

Art Brut! Your brother sounds awesome for even wanting that as a gift (I’m now ordering it for myself).

@snackcarts Maybe her little brother just discovered rock ‘n’ roll? (Sorry, couldn’t resist.)

I would question why you still go to the place where you found a bandaid in your sandwich, but my brother once found a staple in his burrito at a local place, and we still kept going there. Mmmm, burritos and milkshakes. A match made in gastronomic heaven!
