It’s official: I am sick and tired of being broke.
Wait, that’s not quite right. What I mean to say is, I am sick and tired of working my ass off and still being broke.
Hmm, I think a list is in order, don’t you?
Things I would do if I wasn't broke:
1. See a first-run movie
I saw one last summer. It was fun.
2. Buy music
The last CD I bought was Arcade Fire’s Funeral, which was released in 2004.
3. Buy underwear
If my mother wasn’t as crazy as a loon, she’d be horrified at the state of my underwear. Which is still vastly better than the state of my socks.
4. Get away from it all
The last time I went on vacation was to New York City in May of 2002. New Yorkers were still rude back then, which is just how I like 'em.
5. Pay off Simone’s vet bills
How the fuck can it cost almost $600 dollars to do absolutely nothing for your dying cat except put her to sleep?
6. Buy a pair of shoes
I own exactly one pair of shoes: five-year old black Cons that have holes in both heels and one toe. I also own a pair of combat boots that I bought when I was in undergrad, but they're boots so they don't count.
7. Drink a brand of beer that isn’t on special
Boréal is always on special. I hate Boréal.
8. Drink something other than beer
At my age, I should be drinking martinis. With my twenty-three year old lover. In Paris.
9. Pay for my physiotherapy
According to the Quebec government, it's one of life’s little luxuries.
10. Buy a lottery ticket
‘Cause this could be my lucky day. It could be, couldn't it? C'mon, lie to me, will you?
