Friday Estimate

It’s Friday, which means it’s time to estimate our weekend spending.

Tonight, I’m reading from¬†The Biographies of Ordinary People: Volume 2 at Another Read Through in Portland (7 p.m. if you want to come!) and on Saturday I’m flying to Juneau, Alaska. I’ll be in Juneau for Celebration, a festival celebrating¬†Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian culture, and I’ll also be doing a reading-and-music event with Marian Call and Laura Zahasky at Rainy Retreat on Sunday and teaching a class at 49 Writers on Monday.

All of this is to say that I don’t know exactly how much I’ll spend this weekend, since I’m guessing I’ll have dinner with friends on Friday and Saturday and maybe Sunday too. I’ll also need to get a Celebration ticket, which’ll cost $18. If I estimate $200 for the three dinners, plus Celebration, plus anything else that might come up… let’s say $250.

Total estimate: $250.

How about you?
