Food Money Sex: “I Couldn’t See, But I Knew We Were Having Sex”

The weekend consumption diary for a random Washingtonian.

In Food Money Sex, we ask anonymous Washingtonians to diary the food they ate, the money they spent, and the sex they had over the course of their weekends. On Mondays, we put it on the internet. This week:

  • Does: Nonprofit Coordinator, 26
  • Lives: Petworth rowhouse with 2 friends
  • Is: Female
  • Makes: $38,000
  • Married? Serious relationship
  • Friday: I grabbed a Siggi’s Yogurt from the fridge for breakfast.  Ate the best tacos for lunch with the roommates.  Dinner was pizza and empanadas from Timber, to share with my roommate and my boyfriend.  Lots of party-eating, including: zucchini muffins I made, popcorn, and the most amazing peanut noodles that a guest brought with him.
  • Saturday: K-Cup coffee and a leftover muffin for breakfast.  Spinach + Paneer Kolache while I waited for a package at REI.  Another muffin and leftover peanut noodles.  Korean BBQ for dinner and frozen custard for dessert.
  • Sunday: A serious breakfast spread courtesy of my boyfriend’s mother.  So stuffed I didn’t eat again until we grabbed some pork dumplings from Yes! around 5pm.  Home-cooked dinner of steak and greek salad.
  • Friday: Tacos (Taqueria Habanero, $13), Pizza + Empanadas (Timber, $50), necessary Iced Soy Dirty Chai before House Party (Qualia, $4).
  • Saturday: Ice, Toothpaste, Skittles (7-11, $6), Kolache (La Colombe, $5.50 because I accidentally tipped $1). $13 for compression sacks at REI. Boyfriend bought me dinner Saturday and some ingredients for Sunday.
  • Sunday: Mini Veggie Harvest delivered straight to my door (Hungry Harvest, $20)
  • Total: $111.5
  • Friday: Surprisingly amazing drunk sex (to completion!) post-house party with my loving, sexy boyfriend.
  • Saturday: Lazy, hungover sex to wake up. Boyfriend’s review: “I couldn’t see, but I knew we were having sex.” Spontaneous butt sex in the dark after Korean BBQ.  Sex again after watching Girls, just because.
  • Sunday: Tried to watch porn together.  It was weird, but still ended in some nice morning sex.  Wild somehow-standing sex after smoking some weed (ended right in time for the Girls finale).
