On Time to Do That 1 Thing

My 1 thing is to apply for a job. My job is really great and I plan to stay in it for a long time (at least some years), but I saw a posting for something that's pretty shoot-for-the-moon amazing, and since I already have a resume mostly updated, I figure why not. So... need to tailor my resume, write a cover letter, and go for it.

On Monday Check-in

I predicted "$0-200". What did I spend? Way more than that. $276. $66 for lunch for 3 Friday. $96 for lunch for 4 near the parade downtown on Saturday (+ drinks). $114 for dinner/boozy drinks for 4 on Sunday, because we dragged my family to a kind of expensive place that we really like. It was a hectic weekend, but lots of fun. Sadly, still no Captain America.

On Friday Estimate

Out of town relatives as guests this weekend. They get in today. I'm guessing somewhere between $0 and $300, because I don't know what we're doing, where we're going, or whether I am going to win any of the "you flew all the way out here; let me pay!" battles.

@ThatJenn That will probably be the way that things end up. I suspect, though, that some of our acquaintances may want to call him Mr. C because my name is far easier to pronounce/write.

On That Thing, That Thing, That 1 Thing

@DebtOrAlive @andnowlights I don't ever want to change my name for lots of reasons, but my SSO also has lots of reasons for feeling just as strongly about wanting me to change my name if we were to get hitched. Where we are from (and in his current work/friend bubbles), women don't really keep their last name, so it's not a particularly abnormal perception. I definitely have more of the negotiating leverage on this (and ultimately, no one can MAKE me change my name), but... it's something I may compromise on in exchange for something that is even more important to me, because unfortunately, we are not one of those couples whose ideas and beliefs perfectly align 100% of the time. That said, I will totally be coming here for good arguments to make my case with, because you guys are eloquent and intelligent.
