Frocktober

Just reminding folks that Frocktober isn't just a fun hashtag - it's actually raising money for a really great cause. If you'd like to donate to ovarian cancer research, my fundraiser page is here.

Good grief.

Quinnspiracy / What To Expect When You´re Expecting (the internet to ruin your life) - "Try and remember if there’s any places you have accounts for that you might have forgotten. For example, they got into a dominos.com account I had made and forgot about to try and send someone a pizza. It can be especially damaging if that account is automatically set up to charge any of your accounts." ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!

Cool.

How My 98-Year-Old Grandfather Embraced The Internet - Lovely article, and it made me want to spend some time with my Grandpa online. (And wow, I only realised after I finished reading it that it was on Buzzfeed. I didn't realise they did anything but clickbait listsicles and quizzes. Good on them.)

Smug (Cheap) Marrieds

The larger the rock, the rockier the marriage - MarketWatch - Some interesting stats in there. Given that the Snook and I dated for 4.5 years before getting hitched, had no engagement ring, got married in Vegas with no guests, and didn't even have wedding rings for 5 years (and only got them because I bartered web development for them), I think the outcome is clear. We're stuck with each other forever. :)
