On Friday Estimate

@ceereelyo I have never in my life been accused of being a nice person and I won't stand for it now! But seriously, yes this year is excessive. Last year I had zero weddings and the year before I had seven. It's feast or famine.

@ThatJenn Is The Butcher Shop the name of the restaurant or will you be feasting on slabs of freshly trimmed meat? Either way I'm in!

@readyornot Hey! Welcome to New York. That's a pretty great price considering everything you're doing. Well played.

On Friday Estimate

So i have been abstaining from the Friday estimate for most of this summer due to a plague of weddings. I have been to five weddings since June and I have three more to get through before Labor Day. The idea of putting all my spending in print was a little overwhelming but I'm off this weekend so I thought I'd check in. I will still be spending a bunch of money naturally. Ugh. Tonight is a friend's birthday so we'll be going out for drinks. Fortunately this particular friend favors dive bars on the lower east side and pizza so I'm not estimating a huge bill. I'm also not drinking much myself since I have an early morning tomorrow. I'm going with $60 including a few shot specials for the birthday boy since he likes that sort of thing. Saturday I need to go shopping which I have been dreading. I finally forced myself to buy a new suit and some fresh work cloths last month but I think my casual wardrobe has reached the end of its useful life. Also it turns out I don't own any shorts? I'm not sure how much to estimate for this. I need some staples and maybe also a few cool things? $300 at the absolute maximum but that's only if i find fall clothes already on sale. I've pretty much given up on the summer although I do need shorts. I also need a haircut and the girl who used to do this for me moved to Florida so I'm starting from scratch. How much to haircuts cost in the real world? $60? I have no idea. This has been a terrible estimate. Between $200 and $400 I guess? I'm really out of practice.

On Cars, Houses, And other Millennial Milestones

I know I've been away for a while but I do really have to object. Comparing children to witches is an integral part of my personal brand. Please don't infringe on my turf.

On The Cost of One Resolution, Halfway Through the Year

This is great! I have spent a truly unreasonable amount of money this year on my "eat healthy" resolution. Uncountable bushels (bushels?) of Kale that I always plan to eat only to be defeated by the mere fact that Kale is not really a good. Elaborate kitchen devices that I never use. I'm pretty sure the only successful purchase was my magic bullet and that's only because I love seeing vegetables pulled into a whirling vortex of destruction.

@lsilva0613 my greatest regret is that I was unaware of the ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ emoticon when I wrote this.
