This month was marked by high household expenses, new bike brake pads, and pretty low restaurant spending.
Every month, I post my expenses and other data about my life. I'm a bit behind, but here is January's.

This page contains way more numerical data about my life than you probably care about. The datasets for Mood, Caffeine, Alcohol, Miles Biked, and Coffee are updated ad-hoc. The datasets for Beeminder are updated daily, or more often. These are not that pretty. If you'd like to see the data parsed, examined, and presented in…
