Link Love of the Lonely

One of us is traveling overseas!  The other one is… not.  Fortunately the internet is around with some great posts to fill in the temporary electronic void in #1’s soul (or you know to entertain… whatevs).

I hadn’t bumped into this awesome retro recipe website in a year or two, but had to spend quite a bit of time catching up with what I’d missed since then.

Jliedl presents Star Wars and History!

Profgrrrrl with a poem that speaks to so many of us.

See debt run instructs us on how to choose a toilet.

Academic Cog brings us writing with beans.  Also she makes us giggle with a pictorial metaphor.

We still <3 Scalzi.  A neat followup by Jim C. Hines.

Femomhist talks about being smart.

A great post on financial planning by Robert Brokamp.  Maybe now that it’s summer I can spend some time on a little pile of econ articles (complete with “to blog” post-its) that have come to me through the year and digest them for the general public.  There’s been some really interesting work done this past year.

We were an editor’s pick at this week’s carnival of personal finance!

    I am very glad that I am exceedingly intelligent, but I am even more glad that I eventually learned to be persistent, organized, open, and thorough.

      From what I’ve seen, persistence creates intelligence. I *love* watching my students get smarter by stretching their brain muscles. And organization is a good substitute– if you’re organized you don’t need to be as smart and if you’re not you have to be awfully intelligent.
