Funny about Money

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. ―Edmund Burke

Over at Design. Build. Play, Frautech nominated me for a versatile blogger meme. The idea is to

a. nominate 15 fellow bloggers;
b. let them know;
c. thank the person who nominated you;
d. share 7 random things about yourself; and
e. post the Versatile Blogger badge.

Well, let’s see… Most bloggers who hold forth at length about money matters are pretty versatile. These folks come to mind, in no particular order:

  1. Frugal Scholar, proprietor of the site of the same name
  2. Revanche at A Gai Shan Life
  3. Donna Freedman, who blogs at many sites, notably Surviving and Thriving
  4. 101 Centavos, another eponymous proprietor
  5. The mid-30s guy at Money Beagle
  6. Nicole & Maggie at Grumpy Rumblings of the Untenured
  7. FB at Fabulously Broke in the City
  8. Evan at My Journey to Millions
  9. Crystal at Budgeting in the Fun Stuff
10. Mrs. Accountability at Out of Debt Again
11. Silicon Valley Blogger at The Digerati Life
12. Nickel at Five-Cent Nickel
13. Abigail at I Pick Up Pennies
14. FMF at Free Money Finance
15. Tom Drake at Canadian Finance Blog

Seven random things about me:

1. Secretly, I love country-Western music.
2. People scare me. I’m absolutely terrified of other human beings. All other human beings.
3. I grew up in the Middle East.
4. Having traveled over most of the globe except for China and the Indian subcontinent, I have a hard time viewing travel as a vacation activity.
5. I fancy pickled pig’s feet and chitlin’s with a cold Corona, and snails soaked in garlic butter with a decent Pinot noir.
6. I always wanted to be an astronomer.
7. But if I’d been born a boy, I would have gone to sea, just like my daddy.

  1. Argh. Thanks Funny, but I just had a class assignment switch (classes start next week), so I must attend to that.

    I’ve never had chitlins…

  2. Augh, don’t you HATE that???!!?

    So far His Wonderfulness hasn’t come up with an extra class this semester…but the way I ended up with four in the fall was that he had an extra section that needed to be staffed at the last minute. Of course I was very grateful to get the extra work…but must say, it’s mighty unnerving when you think all your ducks are in order to find a homeless goose wandering up the pathway.

  3. Thanks for thinking of me as a versatile blogger!

  4. Funny, thanks for mentioning me as a Versatile Blogger! I will need to put on my thinking cap to find 15 bloggers aside from the ones you’ve already mentioned! 🙂
