@EvanDeSimone @andnowlights Bring it.
@ThatJenn Amen! I'd help that cabal of awesome.
I like 1 thing! Sometimes I just float around doing things, and it's a good reminder to think about what I NEED to accomplish. This week, I need to accomplish: buying plane tickets! Seriously, it's getting not that far from the trip I am taking, and I need to have plane tickets so I know when to schedule other things. That will be my thing for the next few days (involves coordinating with a significant other and out-of-the-country friend, so I'm not even going to pretend to myself like this will happen today, but I can start scouting flights at least).
@OllyOlly @Yogi Yeah, DC cabs are awful. I hate to be a jerk, but I have started begging off of plans with friends where part of the plan is "...and then we take a cab over to ___". Too expensive, too difficult, and too easy to walk/bike/take public transit in most of the areas we go.
@kentuckygal Yaaaaaaaaay! Awesome. :)
@BillfoldMonkey Whoa, that is... magical. Who even does that now? I have Capital One 360 (got it when it was 1% and ING Direct), but things are still high relative to other places at .75% for savings and something like .1% checking. My CU offers a glorious .025% for their savings accounts, so we don't save there anymore.
I was close, but definitely over. Predicted $250, spent $279.50 (plus rent + electricity bills, which are not listed here)> Friday: topped off my farecard with $8, then got lunch at a local Mediterranean fast food place ($9) because I was craving pizza but had just finished a health screening and was feeling bad about myself (even though I did just fine!). The food was tasty anyway. Happy hour after work with friends was $26.50 (SSO bought us dinner elsewhere). Saturday: $37 -- we have not been able to find a good, cheap pizza delivery place near us, and this was another bust. We didn't go outside or do much at all, which was glorious. Sunday: more snowpocalypse prepping. We have gone a few extra weeks without buying groceries, so it was $174 for all of them (plus $24 for beer). I also spent $1 because it was the only bill I had and some adorable kids were having a bake sale in my neighborhood.
Yeah, seeing all Discover expand to that made me really, really happy.
@calamity Obviously you need to find a yoga and/or French class full of matchmakers. Man, I don't even know. I am lucky because my dating life is just "coexist in an apartment with my significant other" most of the time, but... life's busy. Maybe we need a Billfold dating service?
@PicNic @ATF I was in Boston recently and had super tasty $8 brunch at Masa. Just... throwing that out there.
