Friday Estimate

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

This weekend, I’m auditioning for Revival Theatre Company’s upcoming production of Sunday in the Park With George (which is my very favorite musical for so very many reasons, one of which is its discussion of the relationship between art and money), which means I need to go get a headshot printed at FedEx. If the weather is nice, I’ll ride my bike; if the “ten days of rain” forecast turns out to be accurate, I’ll take the bus — but I ran out of money on my bus pass, so that might be $10 plus another $4 or so for the printing.

I also need to get to/from the auditions, which is bikeable but might require a Lyft if it’s raining heavily (no bus service on Sunday, unfortunately). So… another $20 for that.

Also, I just learned from Lifehacker that the Anne of Green Gables miniseries and sequels many of us grew up with are finally available to buy and stream, and part of me is like “I’m going to pay $39.99 to access all of these movies at some point, so why not do it now?”

Total estimate: $75.

How about you?
