The super-haters make a bad name for the regular-haters from Roxie’s World.
Thoughtful money analogies from Mutantsupermodel.
Congratulations to eemusings!
Academic readers!!! Small Steps for Big Change has been offered the chair position at her school and NEEDS YOUR ADVICE. I’m inclined to say no, but I’m also not that experienced. (It’s a university that doesn’t give tenure too, just 5 year contracts.)
Grading. We hates it. From Proflikesubstance.
We sort of got addicted to I Love Charts.
A neat older article on four year olds in kindergarten.
Frugal Forties with a rant on people who fool themselves with no-spend challenges. Some folks spend a heck of a lot more than we do in regular months with lame justifications during their no-spend challenges.
This here is why we are feminists. We usually try to stay away from religion and politics on this blog, because that’s not the kind of noise we are making here. But come on. A group of men and boys allegedly gang-raped an 11-year-old girl, and then passed around photos and videos of it. As if child-rape and public degradation weren’t bad enough, the media have to be evil about it. Why is anyone, anywhere, in any context, reporting things like:
“It’s just destroyed our community,” said Sheila Harrison, 48, a hospital worker who says she knows several of the defendants. “These boys have to live with this the rest of their lives.” [Right. The BOYS have to live with the outcome. Sure.]
They said she dressed older than her age, wearing makeup and fashions more appropriate to a woman in her 20s. She would hang out with teenage boys at a playground, some said. “Where was her mother? What was her mother thinking?” said Ms. Harrison, one of a handful of neighbors who would speak on the record. [Hey, we can blame men's behavior on multiple women at once! Score!]
This sickens us. Frankly, we blame the patriarchy.
Also, don’t forget to Spring Forward this weekend! As if I needed to miss more sleep right now. ARGH!
