Yes, it's possible to waste time etc. Sorry, it was not in the Greek, I imagine because ξοδεύω is generally associated with money. I've added χρήματα for clarification. It's like: "He drinks" we know it's not soft drinks. But here we have to be more specific.

Yes in the context of a paragraph or a story it could be left out but as a stand alone sentence both translations should be accepted.

Of course "ξοδευω και πίνω" needs nothing further

Yes, I agree that's why I added χρήματα. The "drink" was me being facetious. :-)

"ξοδευω και πίνω" was me trying to be a comedian :o)
