On The Week It Rained and the Future of Umbrellas

Dude yes! Umbrellas are the worst. I mean now it doesn't rain where I live but when I lived in Maine? And Miami? It was all about the jacket and the boots. Or in Miami I'd just wear flip flops because it was warm rain and my feet dried quickly.

On On My Own: Figuring Out How to Pay for College After My Parents Cut Me Off

1. Holy crap, Poly is 24k for in-state tuition? My friend paid that for out of state at UCSB 10 years ago! (I'm an old) 2. Make your own kale chips, it's super easy and way cheaper. 3. Maybe re-prioritize your time to add in some burger flipping or barista-ing instead of unpaid stuff?

On Friday Estimate

@andnowlights Yes but is the savings worth the self control I'll have to exert all week? My husband just said we'll keep it in the garage, but we'll have to try some to make sure it's good. @Stina, I've never had leftovers in this neighborhood. One year I went through 15 lbs of candy. It might be because I let kids take handfulls.

On Friday Estimate

I can't decide if I should go to costco for Halloween candy this weekend or wait and get it somewhere else Thursday. I live two blocks from an elementary school so tons of kids come, but a week with candy in my house sounds like a recipe for tight pants. That will greatly influence my estimate. Otherwise probably 20 dollars for a tip on a travelzoo coupon dinner tonight, and going out for beers after hockey on Sunday (20?) are my planned spends for the weekend. Oh wait, another 10 bucks for ingredients to make a cake for my friend's kid's birthday.

@polka dots vs stripes Yes your fears are 100% understandable. The DMV always makes me stabby just to think about.

@polka dots vs stripes Can you be there when it opens? That's usually the least painful way to deal with things.

@polka dots vs stripes I know! The worst part is confronting my own laziness, it's pretty much the opposite of tragic: people are paying me back on time to do a fun thing and I need to remember to go 5 minutes out of my way to complete the task.

@polka dots vs stripes No! It's a smaller bank that is local and wasn't bailed out and everyone there knows all the customers but you have to go in to deposit checks.
