Tuesday, November 18

I didn’t get cash yesterday so I had to borrow $5 from Peanut to get my morning bagel ($.75). Reason #32 why I like having a boyfriend.

I poke around for birthday presents for my mom but don’t buy anything. It’s Peanut’s turn to pick up the few things we need for tonight’s dinner, which he does...and then he MAKES me sit down and watch Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog on Hulu while he cooks. The man is perfect, I tell you.

A side anecdote about money: My workplace offers free flu shots at the beginning of flu season. I’ve never had a flu shot before but I intend to get one this year. When I went down on flu shot day, however, they had run out of the vaccine—more than twice as many people showed up than they expected. They’ll be setting up a second day when I’ll be getting mine, but I think the incident is interesting. Could this be evidence that people are worried about the economy? That they don’t want to have to pay office copays or for over the counter medications, or that they can’t afford to miss work (even with paid sick days) because they’re afraid of getting laid off?
