On I Want to Do 1 Thing Right But Not Right Now

Receipts are bullshit. That is like some 1980s tax time garbage. Now we have BANK STATEMENTS available with one click and calendars on our phones which record where we were and who we were with. Fuck receipts, the end.

On A Friendly Conversation with a Banker

This is totally great. Two fascinating things: 1. I'm surprised at his take on NYC real estate. It's not unreasonable to think of it as inflated, but I am pretty sure there is plenty of room for increasing value. 2. He's young. It's really easy to imagine the career path to MD from VP. He sounds incredibly level-headed and easy going and team-oriented, so that's totally a possibility for him. But the vast majority of great, smart people don't make it along that path. I would love love love for you to revisit this interview with him every year, as he changes.

On A Friendly Chat With a Rich Person

@emmy It's a fine line, right? I tend towards INSANELY ENTHUSIASTIC GCHATS myself, so when I sometimes pare them down for things like this, I feel like I've taken most out and then what remains is... too much shouting. Heh. But comparatively much less!

On How Are You Spending Thanksgiving, And What Will You Spend?

Haha, everyone kinda wussed out, and there's lots of good reasons to. (It's weird to be like "I'M SPENDING $800!" when Thanksgiving is actually about helping people.) So yeah, putting on a Thanksgiving can cost a lot of money, but let's not forget that you get to eat that food for like three days, plus you're feeding a whole bunch of people. Also then you guilt-give money.

On On Leaving Too Much

GOOD LORD. This is sending me over THE EDGE. I mean, God bless for being thoughtful. And sure, protect your budget. Live the way you need to. But honestly, I feel (PROBABLY UNFAIRLY) like you could have gotten a second job or a night degree with the amount of time you calculated tips to come out to $1.52. A dollar and fifty two cents! My word and stars! What is next?

On Wedding Costs from the Dude's Perspective

@Megano! Without giving short shrift to anything else, I would say my rehearsal dinner was the favorite part of my wedding. We went out for pizza! Our families met--for the FIRST TIME! It was really fun and chill and lovely and it was at our favorite pizza joint and it was a blast. It definitely set the tone, and it was cheap as a mofo, and it made everyone excited about the wedding.
