February 13th, outsourced

I have absolutely no intention of making these fabulous Valentine's Day cookies, but I was mesmerized by the how-to video.

The Emperor of All Maladies will be a movie. A Ken Burns movie. AWESOME. [HT Kaylee]

"When suits become a stumbling block: a plea to my brothers in Christ." This is my new favorite modesty (satire...or is it????) diatribe. [HT Jill]

I keep reading/posting these articles about how hard it is to go back to work after having a baby. I don't even know what to say about them, other than SOLIDARITY.

How to tell if you are in a Victor Hugo novel. ("You frequently make puns, but they are never funny. They are multilingual, serious, and full of multiple levels of meaning, and include at least two pieces of poignant social commentary.")

The story of Kayla Mueller, the last American hostage held by ISIS in Syria who was recently killed (it's unclear exactly when), breaks my heart. (Autoplay video on this site.)

Krasnoyarsk (Russia) time-lapse video! My husband lived there for a year, and I visited the city with him in 2002. [HT Jeremy]

I do love me some Victor Hugo: "You come across a stranger in a darkened alley by a cathedral—but is it a stranger? No! For there are but twelve people in all of France, and you have long and complicated histories with all of them."

OHMYGOODNESS the Emperor of All Maladies!! I am so excited for the series! The book was incredibly fascinating.

A friend of mine neatly pointed out that almost all of the "how you can tell if you're in a Victor Hugo novel" are applicable to "how you can tell if you're in grad school." I thought that made it extra funny. :)

I can hardly believe anyone would take that much time to make some cookies! But they are quite cute.
