Links are here (and a challenge update)

… in case you were looking for them.

A nice little summary of couples and finances from well heeled blog.

We don’t like how Worst Prof Ever has been hating on the Social Scientists, but this post on why Midwesterners are so awesome is just the truth.  Midwestern culture saturates Grumpy Rumblings.  We may even ask 3 times if you’re sure about something before giving up.  (First ask is just polite, second ask is to allow a face save, third ask means we really mean it.)

Nancy Pelosi on reproductive rights

We were in this week’s Carnival of Personal Finance.

Awesome post on redshirting and sexuality by Historiann.  We buy it.  Do you?

The academic blogger’s pseudonym exchange is born over at Roxie’s world.  Dr. Crazy helped.

Must share the pain that xkcd gave us.  )

A bizarre lady overheard at the jewelry counter by Mutant Super Mom.

Little House in the Valley with an update to her utility bill.  Electric is higher in the new place, even though all the other bills were way lower.  Here’s why.

Broke professionals had several posts worth linking to this week.  We picked the one on lessons learned about blogging.  But while you’re over there, check out the ones on housing too!

Suba with another super informative post.  You want a discount on Turbo Tax?  She’s got the hookups.

Challenge Updates!

Writing every day:  EPIC Fail on Wednesday.  What with one thing and another and the weather we’re not talking about, I just FORGOT to do my 30 min of writing.  I forgot there was a challenge.  I forgot everything.  I felt so guilty on Thursday. (Our other half chimes in, but she did so well the rest of the week!)

Steampunk reading challenge:  review coming soon of the first book!  Oh no I’m behind schedule already.  Hm…

    I skimmed the list over Broke Professionals and got so tired I had to lie down (not really). Blogging: now I know I’m doing it wrong.

    Thanks for the link love. We included your article on gifted kids being “mini teachers” in our link love, so that worked out quite nicely!

  3. Little House Says:

    Thanks for including my link! I’d also like to chime in that I’m doing it wrong too. I only just figured out how to track my keywords. I’ll admit, I have no idea what I’m doing. ;)

    Vacations can be fun. You should try it. It’s only the second time in 15 years that I’ve had any kind of issue.

    You know, I’m still laughing from last week’s roundup on the minimalist cartoon.

  5. Roxie Says:

    Hey, thanks for the link. Does this blog have an e-mail address? There’s something I’d like to send y’all. You can contact me at

  6. First Gen American Says:

    Can you please unlink from my rental hell article. I deleted it so now it’s a broken link. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  7. WorstProfEver Says:

    A belated thanks for the shoutout. And to be fair, I hate on all academics who can’t admit they’re fallible — scientists, humanities people, whatever. And I hate on classicists all the time. And people in the store. And on the street. I endeavor to be a truly equal-opportunity misanthrope.
