This post from K8grrl has two of our favorite subjects: trying to get work done, and octopi.
This blogger (Jenny’s books) agrees with us about The Magicians and Mrs. Quent. Hooray! Lazy is exactly right. (Our rant on this and other books is scheduled for later this week, so a little preview.)
Oh lord. A terrifying post (from Dame Eleanor) on dismantling the foreign language departments (except Spanish) at Suny-Albany.
Another terrifying post (from wealth informatics). This one on credit card companies encouraging (and sponsoring pizza parties for) older fraternity brothers to cosign credit cards for their younger frat brothers who can’t get credit cards otherwise. That’s one of those college mistakes that’s gonna haunt a lot of Greeks in the future.
Bianca the car (from Simply Bonkers) is cute. Do you name your car?
A powerful and depressing post (from First Gen American). (BFS found it uplifting instead of depressing)
Riffing off (well similar to) Scalzi and apparently a lot of the rest of the internets, Donna Freedman joins in the shut up about being poor if you make over 100K chorus.
Toxic friends: May this post (from invest it wisely) never apply to you.
Man, I must be feeling ranty this week… not a whole lot of happiness and joy in these posts.
Oh yeah, how could I forget this cheerful post from Dr. Crazy? Though it makes me want to bang on de drums all day.
We were in this week’s Carnival of Personal Finance.
