Should have linked to this one last week: A story of age discrimination and the problems of the older worker by your fab life. I hope I’m financially independent by the time I hit 50.
Grr. I hope Wisconsin takes out these hypocritical jerks. I too would love to be making $82K/year with zero degrees and zero work experience and two drunk driving convictions, all because my family made political campaign contributions. No, scratch that, I think I’d rather have morals and ethics and stuff. Sadly I’m an evil professor sucking at the teat of state government and should not be allowed even collective bargaining rights.
Babies asleep at conferences? Get used to it! From Female Science Prof.
We were in this week’s carnival of personal finance.

Small Steps for Big Change… has been asked to be chair of her department, without tenure. Now they’re reneging on the salary they promised and they’re giving someone who isn’t chair the same additional salary. Should she renegotiate? And how?
Check out Becca’s comment #10 on this response to one of our deliberately controversial posts from Isis the Scientist. (Because it is AWESOME. Very thoughtful and just right on.)
Sorry this post is shorter than usual this Saturday. As the title says, #2 is away from the internet and #1 had all her time eaten by work this week.

Also, all my computers broke.
Monthly challenge update:
As you know from the Monthly Challenges page, I am working on the boring yet important habit of flossing. So far this week I have done it three times, and my goal is four. As long as I floss before bed tonight, I will have met my goal! Hooray!
As we are short on links this week, does anyone want to add some cool ones in the comments? What awesome things have you found on the intartubes that need sharing?
