OMG, I need this today. Upside: I was out with half of my office. Downside: Only half. I don't think I can do the hard stuff yet! Please don't tell me today is only going to get worse.
When I was just out of college, I did a fair amount of babysitting, which gave me more money in two ways: The cash I earned, obviously, but also the money I didn't spend by not going out on those nights!
@garli Yeah, that's interesting. I thought I would see that in college, but ended up with a very not-rich group of friends. And my richest friend in high school is the one who always said she couldn't afford things!
@garli Seriously? Fuck that person. That's ridiculous! The more I hear about other people, the more I realize that I am lucky with my friends. A coworker just went to a bachelorette party out of town, at a location picked because the bride got a free hotel room!
@apples and oranges 1000% the Hunger Games is about inequality!!
@kbn22 Honestly, I feel like you can still just say no. "Thanks so much for the invite! But you know we're just not much of a beach family. :("
I'm pretty sure my plunger was $20, but it's a fancy kind that has a housing so you don't have to look at the plunging part. I definitely only got it because I had a gift card to Bed Bath and Beyond burning a hole in my pocket. It does look better, thought.

My best commute was definitely walking a mile, half of which was across Central Park.
