Special Sunday Link Love

You know that vommity flu thing that’s been going around?  It finally hit Casa Grumpy, suddenly, in the car, on the way home on Friday. We’ve had really nasty colds all week, and the vomit thing pushed me over the edge.  Not sure why #2 didn’t do link love for this weekend either… the only clue I have was this email I briefly viewed on the ipad between sleeping and cleaning up:  “come online so I can fret to you.  my horse has colic.  Fret, fret.”  So I dunno, maybe she’s been up all night carrying the horse around and patting its back and cleaning up spit-up and stuff.

The hashtag #mathjoke has some funny stuff.

Hamburger earphones.

Armchair cookie psychologist.

Not crazy about Vanity Fair, but Hope Jaren is.  I guess we got our spunky heroines from the 21st century literature.  Obviously we need more!

Though I think it ignores task switching and that teaching and service are different from research.

Chris Kluwe on sochi.

No words for this one.

    Oops, forgot to change the info back to Wandering Scientist. Having two online identities is fraught with problems! At least I’m not trying to keep them secret from each other….

    Oh no! I am sorry Grumpy household 1 is sick and also very sorry Grumpy horse #2 is colicking — that’s what eventually did my horse in (though to be clear and somewhat more optimistic, most colics resolve far more satisfactorily even though there is usually a lot of intense, expensive, and/or exhausting work involved. A surprisingly weird detail: horses *cannot* vomit and this is a big part of why they colic. So, to review: vomit — bad. But, inability to vomit — worse. Who’da thunk?).

    Here’s hoping Monday is better for all of you, even though it sounds like it will be a Monday involving recuperating.

    Sorry to hear you’ve been unwell! Feel better, humans! Feel better, horsie!
