Friday the 13th Links

" tights are so tight, and yet I yearn
for a double western bacon cheeseburger.
What to do?  WHAT TO DO!?!?!"
Carrie at Careful Cents resolved not to let other people treat her like an ATM.  I say, once she has their PIN numbers, she should wreak some havoc on their accounts!

Money Spruce suggested five reasons to give up on goal-setting.  But I love hearing the announcer scream, "Gooooaaalll!"

This article from SF Weekly spelled out how difficult a job it is to be a stand up comedian.  I know that the prevailing attitude among people with steady jobs is that people with less steady jobs should have made better choices.  I'm sure happy that some people forego that which is safe to entertain and inspire us.

Frugal Confessions talked about how her health insurance rewards her for making good decisions (like not being a stand up comedian).

Mr. Money Mustache discussed how buying bigger pants won't help you lose weight.  His argument is about how the incentive of not wanting to wear tight pants will make you think twice before eating that double cheeseburger.  Obviously he doesn't know how much I love beef and tight pants.

She Owns It described 8 ways to turn your passions into profits

Wisebread wrote about the tyranny of stuff.  This article inspired me to own less, and I'll have a post in the next couple of weeks with specifics.

Minting Nickels described why two emergency funds are better than one.  Surprisingly, it's not just because you will have saved twice as much money with two emergency funds.

Finally, Baker at Man vs. Debt revealed that he didn't make a lot of money last year.  I guess that just goes to show how trying to make the world a better place by helping people get over their serious problems doesn't make a lot of sense.  He should totally have gotten a degree in economics or something so that he could have become a Wall Street robber baron.  What a sap!

Thanks so much for the link love! Happy Friday 13th, don't let the boogie man get you.

And there's nothing wrong with a love for tight pants, in my book.
