On Money and Dating

Going out on Valentine's Day is often expensive and crowded and noisy and I just don't think it is worth it. CAKE, though, cake is a great idea. This lady who needs a $100 visit to the salon before EACH date is living on a different planet than I am.

On What's Your Fantasy?

I recently gave my boyfriend a card that said I WISH YOU WERE HERE. [drawing of some guy on a bicycle or some shit like that] I ALSO WISH YOU HAD A TRUST FUND. So all of these fantasies sound basically familiar.

On My Last Hundred Bucks: The Hoosier State

Your boss wanted to have lunch to talk about work and you paid for yourself! That's a bummer. I think the boss should be picking up the bill.

On Is Sephora a Dream or Our National Nightmare?

I drop a fair bit of money on Sephora for a couple of reasons, one, my skin is shit and they have products that make it look better (all basically skincare items, no actual makeup) and two, I'm in Canada so my retail options are much more limited than they would be in the US. ETA that salomeforever reminded me that the return policy is AMAZING and I appreciate that. My eyebrows went ALL OVER my face at "$7 or whatever for a thing of Rosebud Salve? Fuck you. I’ve taken a travel-sized thing or two a couple times while in line to buy like $70 worth of other stuff. If we’re gonna be gouged…" because that's....not how society works. The Rosebud Salve is seven bucks so either buy it for seven dollars or don't?

On How Much Do You Spend on Transportation Each Month?

Ah, I feel so vindicated. When the grocery question came up, I was way at the high end of things spending about $100 a week for myself and one cat. But I'm totally winning at transportation costs. I walk absolutely everywhere. No car, no cabs. Twice a week I take public transit to rugby practice (but get a ride home from someone in my neighborhood). That's $3 a ride so roughly $20 a month. Bam!
