@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.
@andnowlights I literally have no idea what people even wear.
@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!
@calamity Thank you for reminding me that I need to return all the library books ever.
@readyornot Hey! Welcome to New York. That's a pretty great price considering everything you're doing. Well played.
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.
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.
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.
