A Very Expensive Weekend

Posted August 15th, 2011 at 11:32 AM by Mr Cat Dog

You ever have one of those weekends when you just go out and spend, SPEND, SPEND? Here's mine, along with what I bought in brackets, for extra judgment on your part:

DVD bought online (Inland Empire): £10
Proms ticket (Film Music Prom): £5
Subway (Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki meal): £7
Friday night drinks (Long Island Ice Tea and Coke): £10

Lunch at McDonalds (5 Chicken Selects meal): £5
Theatre ticket (Richard III): £15
Dinner at Wagamama (Ginger Chicken Udon): £10

Tube tickets to/from the O2: £5
Ticket to Empire Big Screen (Panel: How to become a Film Journalist*): £15
Lunch at Zizzi (Fettuccine alla Carbonara): £10
New socks: £10
DVDs bought in HMV (Amores Perros and Four Lions): £10
Expensive book not available in the UK but on eBay (The Battle for Late Night by Bill Carter): £18
Dinner at Domino's Pizza - takeaway (Large Cheese and Tomato with Ground Beef and Tandoori Chicken): £15
More DVDs bought online (The Comeback Season 1): £6

Total: £141 (give or take a few pennies where I've rounded up)


I don't know why I do stuff like this, but writing it all out has been theraputic and I definitely will NOT be doing it at least for another week month hopefully ever?** Feel free to judge me in comments. I deserve it.

*I don't even WANT to be a film journalist. I just liked the look of the panel. What is WRONG with me?

**HA! Like that's going to happen...

    For reference:

    £141 = 160€ = $231 (US) = $226 (CAN) = $220 (AUS)
