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

@Tripleoxer Yeah my costs are pretty reasonable (field board is $250 a month, though I have to buy additional feed) even for my area, which is cheaper than Boston. Also, $500 for a one day event? An FEI event MAYBE. But yeah I did not 'get' a pony until I was 16, and my parents rode too so it was hardly for my benifit alone. We still have her, she's now my parents pony, mine was a free aquisition.

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

@Tripleoxer I too own a pony and would like to concur that the costs listed here are INSANE and very reflective of being in a competition barn outside of NYC. Like I read the cost of board and needed to breath into a bag.

On Friday Estimate

I am currently at a work luncheon at Magggiano's- $0. Tonight I am going to the farm I used to work at to have dinner with my old boss and my coworker/friend who is visiting from Georgia. Also $0. Saturday I hope my friend and I can go to a tack store to scope out my Chistmas present (I will be trying on boots that my parents are getting me) and I will probably spend $2 on coffee. I have a ton of organizing to do that day, because Sunday I have a horse show. Will probably spend $5 on food. I will need $40 of gas at some point because on Monday because I am driving to Atlantic City for work. Hoping for $50.

@Tripleoxer !!!! Weren't you contemplating leaving your job for a new one with a bad commute? Sounds like you hit the job jack-pot!

On WWYD: Bring Bottles In Yourself Or Leave Them for the Less Fortunate

How much money would you make on recycling? What would you do with this money? If you'd feel good about how you'd spend it- byobottles. If not, leave them on the street.

On Getting Sugar Cereals As A Gift

@peutetre My experience was virtually the same, but with cousins instead of siblings. I always went for the Fruit Loops or Frosted Flakes.

On American Girl Dolls Are Still Expensive (But Not As Expensive As They Could Be)

@mary_garth You win with the demon-possessed Nan, laughed too loudly in the office over that one! I am glad I wasn't the only one to be a books> dolls. Future history major in the making I guess.
