We rounded up a bunch of our pals from around the Internet and asked them how they’re spending their Thanksgivings.
How’d you spend your last $100, Spenser?
$0. I went to this hair school to get my hair dyed for free because that is a thing they do. I was excited! But then they said I couldn’t because my hair was too grey to work for this particular free coloring of hair opportunity. This made me feel bad about myself.
Where’d your last hundo go, Liz Rush?
What happened to your last hundo, Chanel Dubofsky?
And how was your weekend?
“Are there standby tickets?” I asked, knowing that I made that up.
Good morning! Let’s check in and see how we did this weekend.
Good morning! How were your holidays and weekends? Let’s check in.
On Friday, I spent $59.13 at The Home Depot on my volunteer supplies (push broom, shovel, work gloves, headlamp, masks, goggles) to help out in The Rockaways, and I spent my Saturday out in Rockaway Beach at the Surf Club under the supervision of Team Rubicon, a two-year nonprofit made up of military veterans and medical professionals who got together to help out in Haiti after discovering that it takes large organizations like the Red Cross weeks to get on the ground because of all the bureaucracy they have to work through (the Red Cross has received a lot of criticism for moving too slow after Sandy, and my own experience volunteering with the Red Cross in the last few weeks have been not so great).
I spent zero dollars this weekend—mostly because I didn’t make it to the grocery store like I was intending, or to see the new Bond film.
