The Autism/MMR Fraud – Lots of good details on the publication that started the Autism-MMR link that anti-vaccine parents believe in. The comments on this post get very wonky, but the post itself is good.
Three-something years ago (okay, okay, three years ago on February 25, 2008), I started growing my hair out into locs. I plaited my 2 inches of ‘fro and let it go. This was a month after I left teaching and the night before I started my first post-teaching job, and it was a big life transition for me. I was mourning having “failed” at being a teacher and wanted something personal to accomplish as I reentered corporate software development.
Slim pickings, because, you know, I got married last weekend. Then I spent four days with next to no internet in the mountains (fun!). Wedding and honeymoon pictures are in need of sorting, editing, and posting, but that ain’t happening super-quick. The wedding (awesome as it was!) was the segue into the important part: being married. I’m a bit wrapped up in the (fun) administrative aspects of that at the moment: getting names changed (Melissa Avery-Weir, y’all), insurance worked out, and finances merged.
Side note: ING is frigging obnoxious in changing accounts from individual to joint. If I’m signed in and editing my accounts, Greg has to sign in every single time I make him the joint account holder. Can I get, like, a cookie? A session variable? Can ING remember him for five damn minutes?
The original posting of this was horribly borked. I may be switching link-posting plugins.
Warm and Fuzzy Budgeting – "You have things that matter to you. Hopes, and goals, and dreams. This is going to sound cheesy, but I think it’s true: Your budget is simply your hopes, and goals, and dreams … on paper."
