5 For Friday: Random Question Day

by J. Money on Friday, February 10, 2012

In honor of our very first 5 For Friday a whole 10 months ago, I thought we’d do a “random question” series today to help jump start our weekend :)  If you’re up for it, copy and paste the following questions on your OWN blog, and then answer them there to keep ‘em moving along. OR, answer them in the comments below.  Especially question number 5 – I’d love some new tips ;)

Ready? Set? Humor me:

  1. What was the last thing you purchased?
  2. How about the last thing you returned?
  3. How much is in your wallet/purse right now?
  4. What would you do with an extra $100 in cash?
  5. What’s your favorite album right now?
  6. **EXTRA CREDIT** Who was the last person you kissed?

Here are MY answers:

  1. The last thing I purchased was….. (going over to check my c/c account…)… looks like my recent health insurance premium :(  $292, ugh.  Right before that was beer though – yay!! Haha… we’ll be drinking the rest of that tonight, thank you very much ;)
  2. Hmm… the last thing I returned was probably the 24″ computer monitor I was testing out cuz my old 22″ one broke :(  (It kept getting darker and darker every day I turned it on, isn’t that weird?).  I was originally just gonna replace it with another 22″, but figured if I’m gonna spend the money, I might as well do an upgrade while I’m at it – esp since monitors are SO much cheaper these days.  Only thing was that once I saw the 27″ Samsung one for $80 off, I knew I had to have it over the 24″ I had just picked up the day before ;) So I swapped! And now it completely takes over my desk, haha, but I feel like I’m in the future!
  3. Right now I have exactly $30 in cash in my money clip, and a hearty $150ish on an Amex gift card waiting to be spent ;) Though I’ve had it for a good two months now…
  4. Ooooh $100?  I’d probably exchange it for 100 $1.00 bills and use it in an upcoming art project I want to but together for my Blogger Lair.  It’ll kinda be like the last one I did, only not with paint this time. And $100 would be more than enough :)
  5. Hands down Mumford & Son’s “Sigh No More” album.  My bro got it for me for Xmas, and I’ve literally listened to it every single day since.  It makes for GREAT blogging music in the mornings, and really inspires me to think outside myself more.  I highly recommend it!
  6. **Extra Credit** The last person I kissed was Lolita. A very slim, and beautiful, woman who happens to love chasing her own tail and eating lots of cat food. (I Hope Mrs. BudgetsAreSexy isn’t reading this)

Your turn!  Divulge all your dirty little secrets with us today so you can enjoy a conscious-free weekend ;) I promise not to tell anyone if you don’t.

1. The last thing I purchased was groceries yesterday. Bananas and some spaghetti. Exciting stuff!
2. The last thing I returned was a desk calendar my sister had given me for my birthday, but I’d already bought myself one, so I had to return it. I bought a sugar bowl shaped like an elephant instead. Best birthday present ever.
3. I think there’s about $30 in my wallet right now, plus maybe $5 in coins. This is actually a lot for me. Usually I have much less, but I went out last weekend to a place that only took cash, and I took out an extra twenty just in case, though I didn’t end up using it.
4. $100 in cash would definitely go right on my credit card. The balance got a little away from me last month, meaning I actually didn’t pay it off in full, which I didn’t care for!
5. I’ve been listening to the new Sarah Blackwood album a lot.
BONUS. The last person I kissed? Yeah, probably my cat. Her name is Apple and she hates everyone but me. Le sigh.

1. The other night I had to buy supplies to make a mousetrap race car. My son’s science teacher decided it would be fun to announce this project the day before the supplies were needed. Thanks a lot, Mr. Teacher!
2. I honestly can’t remember the last time I returned something… I had to exchange a pair of jeans last July if that counts.

1. The last thing I purchased was a book for school off half.com. $30 is steep on that site, but it was cheaper than other options…
2. I can’t even remember, but I have two pairs of the BF’s ripped jeans to go back (life-time warranties and an envelope full of discolored receipts from two years ago make for $10 new jeans…)
3. $18, which is more than I usually have since I rarely carry cash (I know, bad PF blog reader…)
4. Extra $100 bucks? I’d still put it toward my Student Loans. Slowly and steady.
5. Watch the Throne. I listen to it at the gym.
Bonus: The BF. Every morning, we see each other out at the door (depending who leaves first) and there’s always a goodbye kiss involved. Silly? Yes. But I love it.

1. I paid my life insurance premium last night. (And a bunch of other bills, but that was technically the last payment I scheduled!)
2. A sweater my mom got me for Christmas. She heard me say how cute I thought it looked on the mannequin, but it just didn’t work on me when I tried it on. :-(
3. 71 cents and a Lowe’s gift card with $15 left on it. The only cash I carry is my spending money for the month, and I blew it all on a concert in Philly over the weekend. So worth it though!
4. Probably use that and my Lowe’s gift card to tackle a home improvement project.
5. A tie between Jack’s Mannequin – People and Things, and Jukebox the Ghost – Everything Under the Sun. I picked both of them up and that concert, and I can’t stop listening to them!
**EXTRA CREDIT** My husband, this morning before we left for work. Or, if you are of the opinion that dogs are people, too: my dog, Elvis. :-)

1) Last thing I purchased was a grande soy chai latte with 5 pumps of vanilla.

2) The last thing I returned was actually an exchanged. I went to Target last weekend and got a curling iron and the next season of Sex and the City that I needed (guilty pleasure TV show. I just can’t stop watching it!). Then it turned out that I got the wrong size barrel of a curling iron (apparently it matters) and I got the wrong season of SATC. So I exchanged them for the correct size and the correct season. However, the new curling iron was cheaper than the other one so I got like $4 back!

3) I only have about $2 in my wallet – not counting the change. I’m terrible at having cash on me!

4) If I had an extra $100 in cash right now? I’m going to be boring and stick it in my savings account. I need all of the extra I can get! OR I would put it towards getting my dog the shots he needs to get. Those are crazy expensive!

5) My favorite album right now would probably be Adele 21. I downloaded it not too long ago and it’s been playing in my car on repeat lately. :)

6) Extra credit question? UGH. This one makes me cringe so I’m just gonna say you don’t want to know.

1. My wife’s haircut. Followed closely by soba noodles for lunch yesterday…. for
2. Your answer for this one’s going to change one Baby$ comes around. I don’t even have to think about this – it’s definitely some baby junk or clothes that don’t fit.
3. $135 High Rolllaaaahhhh! Why you so curious to know? I’m NYC baby, come try and get it! :)
4. Really, really fun stuff… Send it to Fidelity to buy “mo mutual funds”
5. Nick-Fit – Wait, what? You’ve never heard of Nick-Fit? Punky alternapop by yours truly. Like crappy music, you’ll LOVE this album.
6. Wanted a great answer to this, so I just kissed the guy in the office next to me. He’s a bit confused… just kidding – my son before I left for work. Was thinking about kissing Ulysses S. Grant’s pic on the $50 in my wallet but I don’t know where he’s been…

1. What was the last thing you purchased? A new car. Since the old lady had a mini cooper and a baby one the way, we decided it was time to upgrade. Yes I know new cars are the devil, but I promised her I would buy her ONE new car in her life and this is it. We self finance (we made a car payment to ourselves every month for 4 years and will continue to do so),

2. How about the last thing you returned? I returned a pair of pants I got for Christmas. I just didn’t like the way they were cut.

3. How much is in your wallet/purse right now? $1. We live in a cashless society so I don’t carry much cash. When I travel it’s a much different story.

4. What would you do with an extra $100 in cash? I’d probably be boring and take the old lady out to dinner and movie.

5. What’s your favorite album right now? This has been and will continue to be one of my favorite albums. I always keep coming back to it. Sublime – 40oz to Freedom

**EXTRA CREDIT** Who was the last person you kissed? My wife, I kiss her every morning when I leave for work. Studies show I will live longer if I keep doing this (I must be sucking her life force out of her like some sort of space vampire)

1. My last purchase was a $1300 Student Loan payment scheduled for today. It has not cleared yet, but I hope that counts. :) If not, it would be the $100 deposit I put down yesterday for my sister’s bachelorette party this spring. MUCH more exciting.

2. I returned a pair of insoles for my running shoes. The box had two right feet.

3. I’ve got $5 in singles!! Make it RAIN!

4. Pay SLs. Boring.

5. Just pulled out my Paramore “brand new eyes”. Haven’t listened to it in MONTHS so it’s been on replay for the past few days.

How much is in your wallet/purse right now? about $100…

What would you do with an extra $100 in cash? probably buy some warm running gear. Joined a running club and it’s still cold in CO Springs!

What’s your favorite album right now? If you know me (and you do), that is such a loaded question…i did get about 10 GB of music from a co-worker/friend in San Antonio and w/those jams, so far I’m stuck on stupid w/the Black Keys.

1. The last thing I purchased was groceries on Tuesday ($78.34)
2. According to the credit card the last thing I returned was something on Dec 15.
3. Most likely $0 in my wallet right now…
4. With a $100 in cash – I would save it of course!! :)
5. Favorite album? That’s a tough one, since I usually just listen to random Pandora stuff or whatever MMM happens to have playing. Depending on my mood, I either like Red Hot Chili Peppers (mood booster), Morcheeba (relaxer), Bob Dylan or Doors or Eagles (walk down memory lane), Tragically Hip (nostalgic for Canada), Flogging Molly or Bad Religion (working out)… my most favorite album is one called “Spanish Guitar Music”, but I have no idea who it is.

Extra Credit: Last person I kissed was my beautiful 6-year old son this morning when I dropped him at school. We kiss at least 100 times daily. :)

P.S. Thanks for your fun and educational blog, J! I am so impressed that you always respond to the all the comments, which is one of the reasons I keep reading. :) Happy Friday!!

1) What was the last thing you purchased? Wednesday night dinner – Thai food because I’m sick and didn’t have the energy to cook.
2) How about the last thing you returned? I can’t even remember :( I never return things, although I have to return a pair of pants to Old Navy.
3) How much is in your wallet/purse right now? A lot actually. About $230 for a cash-only challenge I’m doing this month, $180 because I won the Superbowl pool at my work and another $40 from the cash I had before the challenge.
4) What would you do with an extra $100 in cash? looking at the above, apparently keep it in my wallet. But I would deposit the cash (like I’m going to do with my football winnings) and put it towards my wedding fund.
5) What’s your favorite album right now? I don’t really listen to albums…or much music at the moment. Sad, I know.

3. I have $2.00 cash in my bag lol.
4. An extra $100 would go towards my credit card debt!
5. My favorite album would currently be Adele’s ’21′

What was the last thing you purchased?
$33.16 on fuel for my car. The price had just spiked, but I managed to find a station that hadn’t raised their prices yet so I filled up!

How about the last thing you returned?
It’s been a while. Possibly a lightbulb for a burned our pot light last summer.

How much is in your wallet/purse right now?
Nada. I’m on a low/no spend challenge, so I can’t spend money. Every penny is going to debt.

What would you do with an extra $100 in cash?
Throw it on my line of credit. Boring, I know, but its true!

What’s your favorite album right now?
I don’t remember when the last time I bought a whole album was! I’ve liked everything that has come off the Black Keys’ El Camino album though, and everything that has come out of LMFAO has been really catchy. Oh, and I get Volbeat’s A Warrior’s Call stuck in my head – in a good way.

**EXTRA CREDIT** Who was the last person you kissed?
My boyfriend *swoon* We’ve been together little over a year and I still have a 3rd date level of giddiness thinking about him. :D

1) Pizza and a movie last Friday. It snowed, a lot and a lot of people got a snow day, me included ( with pay) :) My husband got a paid for hotel with room service. Lucky guy!
2) A sweater that was the wrong size.
3) Whatever $60 minus pizza and a movie is :)
4) Put it in my new lucky kitty bank. I don’t know why but that thing just makes me want to fill it with money. Or purchase Facebook stock for the f of it.
5) My husband last night, before bed and my black kitty this morning before work.

Cash? Nothing at all!
What would you do with an extra $100 in cash?
If you mean physical cash probably forget I had it. I don’t like to use cash. It doesn’t get me cash back. ;] Is putting it in the bank a valid response? If it is, then just funnel it over to my student loans!
What’s your favorite album right now?

1) Last thing I purchased: $43 worth of produce, bulk pistachios, and ground poultry. The meat wasn’t on the list, but $2.33/lb for ground chicken was too good of a price to pass up for an item that I WILL use.
2)A pair of gloves. I bought winter gloves for work in November for $6. They were stolen last month and had to run out and buy a new pair. Same gloves were $20! I wore them that day and then my old pair were returned, so I got my $20 back.
3)$5 The wife won $20 off a scratch-off. We bought lunch and that’s what’s left.
4)$100 would go in the checking account. Didn’t get any hours this week, so money’s going to be a little tight at the end of the month.
5)Oh, man. I haven’t listened to albums in forever. I usually just listen to the radio/Pandora. I guess I’d have to go with the 70′s jazz fusion band, Weather Report’s, biggest hit- Heavy Weather.
Extra Credit: My wife of course.

1. Today I bought some food at Tesco’s. Okay, so it was ice cream, and not actual food… but I enjoyed it very much. Mmm, Häagen-Dazs.
2. Last fall, I returned dress from Dorothy Perkins that was one size too small. This was also the first time I’ve ever returned anything… I’ll definitely be doing this more often.
3. I’ve got £94.36 in my wallet right now, and it’s earmarked as my food budget for the next three months.
4. If I had an extra $100 dollars in cash with absolutely no strings attached, I would probably stock up on Moleskine notebooks. A good notebook is one of the little things I enjoy using on a day-to-day basis, but I always feel guilty shelling out £12 for each new one when I could buy something slightly less perfect for cheaper.
5. Right now, my favourite album is ‘Definitely Maybe’ by Oasis, as it has been for the past three years.
Extra credit… not telling ;)

What was the last thing you purchased? — I guess debt payments dont really count as purchases.. I recently subscribed to the Sunday edition of the local paper. We can get coupons for $1.25 each week instead of $2.00. Its like a coupon for coupons.

How about the last thing you returned? — My wife returned several overpriced items to “The Limited” when we started our current journey out of debt.

How much is in your wallet/purse right now? Not a cent.. Only a debit card. We’re going “cash free” these days.

What would you do with an extra $100 in cash? – Straight to the credit cards.. Nothing fun for now. There will be plenty of cash for that later.

What’s your favorite album right now? – Great question.. I love talking about music. Mumford has been a favorite for 2 years now.. Im glad you found them. They have blown up so much that they might be playing stadiums the next time they come through town. If you like Mumford.. I would recommend two bands who seem to occupy a regular spot in my 6-disc changer: The Dodos and Frightened Rabbit.

Who was the last person you kissed? – Probably my 7 month year old baby. She giggles when we kiss her. So.. well.. we kiss her alot :)

1. The last thing I purchased was groceries.
2. The last thing I returned was ou cable TV stuff. We have decided to go without!
3.There’s about $50 in my wallet right now. I usually never have money in my wallet but was out in town yesterday and chose to bring cash and leave my credit card so I wouldn’trisk to n go all crazy with my CC!
4. $100 in cash would definitely go to my CC debt.
5. I’ve been listening to the XX album a lot.
6. My cat! (because my bf has been off on a mini-vacation for a couple of days)

@J. Money
I was trying to make some really good chicken wings for my wife, her favorite, but we are on this all natural thing with no preservatives and we are staying away from a lot of those processed oils. Lard is normally unprocessed and really good for deep frying wings, but the stuff I got had all kinds of additives in it. So being the health nuts we are we had to return that brand of lard for another(I know that sounds so weird).

53 J. Money February 14, 2012 at 7:05 pm

Haha… yes, does sound weird, but hey – you gotta do what you gotta do! No shame in that :)
