Not a great holiday weekend

September 5th, 2005 at 04:35 pm

I had such nice plans for this weekend! I did go out and do some clothes shopping. I only spent $125 out of my $200, and I got 5 long-sleeved shirts, 1 jean jacket, and some underwear. I'm sure many people here could have done better with $125, but hey, this is New York City. I could have spent that much on one shirt!

After that, I met up with my boyfriend. We were going to go to a party a friend of mine was throwing. We met up around 7:00, and the party was at 9:00. We ate dinner at an Indian place, bought some alcohol and ice for my friend, and then went to the party. The party was fun and I got to see a lot of people I hadn't seen all summer (most of the people there were still in college, so I usually don't see them during the summer). As the party went on, though, my boyfriend started feeling ill... We ended up leaving around midnight, took a cab home, and we both spent the night and next day in bed with food poisoning. Or, more accurately, we spent the night and next day running from the bed to the bathroom. It was... unpleasant, to say the least. Thankfully, it was fairly mild, as food poisoning incidences go. That was Saturday night, and by Monday, I'm functional. The last time I had food poisoning I was out of commission for most of a week! I'm keeping food down now, and I'm pretty happy about that.

Nothing else to report this weekend, except my spending. Yes, a lot on clothes, but it was all in the budget. The money I spent on alcohol, however, wasn't... I don't know how to classify it. I might take it out of the remaining money I had budgeted for clothing. I probably will, since I don't intend to go clothes shopping again this month.
