Some entertainment spending

March 9th, 2011 at 09:21 am

I usually don't spend a lot on entertainment, but today it all hit at once. My Netflix subscription hit my credit card ($9.99) as well as my year-long subscription to Ancestry.com ($154.40). Yes, I decided not to cancel after the free trial. Several reasons -- there are so many lines in my family to follow, and I am not nearly done yet -- and I want to do this for my grandchildren. Maybe even write up a history and give it as a Christmas gift to my kids' families. Secondly, it is something I can use at work when I'm trying to figure out family legacies and relationships in our alumni base. Of course, the College won't help me pay for it -- I guess you could say that in a way it is my gift to the College.

Anyway, I'm not done yet. I also bought tickets to the upcoming lecture/book talk by Alexander McCall Smith. He is one of my favorites and will be speaking right here where I work. Tickets are $10 and I bought two, one for me and one for my BFF. (She will undoubtedly pay me back).

So, lots of entertainment, coming up!

    A friend of mine subscribes to Ancestry. He is a journalist as well, and he uses it to track down sources. Kind of a crazy application, but he swears by it!
