The Week: January 10, 2014

We’re back in grey Seattle, and plan to be for the next few weeks.

It’s kind of great to be home. It’s chilly and wonderful here (perfect weather for making soup and cookies and puddings). Plus, the Seahawks are in the playoffs. I considered casting all sorts of gentle hexes on the Saints (I don’t want the opposition to get hurt, but I don’t want them to win, either). Apparently I need to carve the names of all the Seahawk players into a candle and let it burn for several hours? I think I read that somewhere.

I don’t know. That sounds complicated. So I’m just going to bake a batch of cookies for my friends with Louisiana-roots and know that whatever happens, they’ll be happy. And that’s enough.

Design geeks and Pixar fans, rejoice! This look at the architecture of The Incredibles is worth your time.

There are fish in Africa that can jump out of lakes and eat birds. I am both terrified and fascinated.

My crush on Top Gear‘s Richard Hammond is just getting worse.

Totally digging the art of James Chapman – particularly when he explores the words we give for animal sounds across different languages.

Bill Comeans was murdered 34 years ago, and the crime remains unsolved. His family has taken to Twitter (writing an account in the first-person voice of Bill) to try and get some answers.

Thor Harris tells us how to live like kings. His all-caps manifesto is peppered with curse words, so it feels like an angry old man is yelling at you.

Neil Patrick Harris, mostly naked and drunk on margaritas. YOU ARE WELCOME.

This might be the greatest tweet I’ve ever seen – dolphin proposes, gets jilted.

Rand’s recap of 2013 was way more in-depth and awesome than all of my smoochie photos.

Aaaand that’s it for me this week. Go Hawks!
