On Friday Estimate

@dromeda There's a place I can get mine threaded for $8 in Andersonville in Chicago! It's not the greatest walk to get to though, so in less than ideal weather, I pay more.

On How Wizards Do Money: Blaise Zabini

@Lyesmith I saw the headline and IMMEDIATELY wondered if Blaise was going to be a dude or lady, so I love the way you went with this Nicole.

@Swimf4n everyone needs to get paid! And that's legitimately rough.

On Friday Estimate

Tonight, I'm going to hit the gym, and then figure out if I'm up for making dinner? It's been a very long week. ~$10 if the answer is no. Then reading and sleeping forever. Saturday is a library/Target trip. I don't NEED anything from target, except a gift/card for my friend, so here's hoping I make it out in under $50. Then we're heading to a bar to watch hockey. I'll get $60 out for drinks/cab fare home. (fingers crossed I don't leave my wallet at the bar this year!) Sunday is I think going to be Thanksgiving prep, so cleaning and a little grocery shopping. ~$30-40? Total: somewhere under $200

On On Being a "Workaholic" When You Need the Money

@Erica it's kind of like saying you're an oxygenholic or something. Yes. yes I am. I want to be breathing it every minute of every day.

On 1 Thing Will Make You Jump (Jump)

I need to get Friendsgiving a little better organized. AKA nail down what dishes we've got covered/what we actually need.

On "The Cost of 'Daddy I Want a Pony'" as Experienced by Josh

are withers the butt? I think they're horse butt or horse shoulder but don't quote me on that until I google it. "The withers is the ridge between the shoulder blades of a four-legged mammal. In many species it is the tallest point of the body, and in horses and dogs it is the standard place to measure the animal's height (in contrast, cattle are normally measured to the top of the hips)."

On Checks and Balances: One Lady’s Haphazard Finances

@sherlock up until I could deposit checks via my phone it would take me forever to deposit checks. and yeah, it was definitely a way to guard yourself against bouncing a check and NSF fees in the pre-overdraft "protection" days.

On Building a Better Pancake

@totallyunoriginal it might have been used to fake up some buttermilk from regular milk!

On Checks and Balances: One Lady’s Haphazard Finances

@lisaf I think it means reconciling your record with the bank statement? (or receipt from the last time you withdrew money)
