This Week In Links: The Jeopardy Analogy Edition

I’ve spent the week combing the tubes of the Internet, and once again I’ve got five great sites that you should check out in your free time this weekend. My favorite has got to be the first one. Reading analogies by high schoolers makes my day, and as you will be able to tell once you read it, my favorite is number 4. But, to quote my old friend Levar Burton, you don’t have to take my word for it.

This Week in Links: The Chocolate Peanut Butter Edition

I have a bit of a sweet tooth, you could say. I always want a little something after dinner just to curb that craving for, in my case, chocolate. If the chocolate is somehow mixed with peanut butter, even better. Those two together are my favorite flavor combination in the whole world. So you can imagine my great delight when I ran across a site completely devoted to all things chocolate and peanut butter. The Internet is officially complete.

Enjoy the other links as well!

{Richard Wurmbrand} If you are a Christian, this video will encourage you and convict you. If you’re not a Christian, I hope that it will raise questions in your mind about what Christianity is really about. Either way, it’s an incredible watch.

{Andrew Osenga’s new EP} It’s free to download, so even if you’re not sure you’ll like it, you won’t lose anything.

{How to make flour tortillas} I want to try this soon.

This Week In Links: The Slapface Edition

The fall television season is almost upon us, and I’m starting to get excited. I’m not a very loyal TV watcher in general, and I don’t really watch that much TV, but there are a few shows I really like. One of my favorites, embarassingly enough, is Dancing With the Stars (sadly, I’m the only one in my family). But seriously, guys. This season, Rocco Dispirito is dancing! An amazing cook attempting to do amazing dances. It doesn’t get much better.

And, of course, The Office is coming back Sept. 25. I haven’t heard much about the plot (though there had better be Jim-Pam wedding bells), but there’s a pretty good promo video that’s like licking the brownie bowl while the brownies are cooking.

Actually, it’s not like that, because I used to want to just eat all the batter without cooking the brownies. In fact, once I made a list of things I would do when I “got to college,” which to me meant being able to do anything I want. I think there were a lot of things, but the two I remember are 1) Eat a bagel every morning for breakfast and 2) Eat a bowl of brownie batter. I don’t know why my parents weren’t more worried when I went off to school. Also, I love that both involved eating. Not surprising.

But I’m getting off track. I’ve rounded up some of the things I’ve most enjoyed around the Web this week, including the aforementioned Office promo.

{A new Olympic game} Courtesy of Jim Halpert. Every scene with Dwight is my favorite.

{On Mike and Firemen} The Pioneer Woman writes about her brother Mike. Me? I almost cried.

{LOST preview} For those of you who don’t get Entertainment Weekly’s e-mails, keeping you up-to-date with everything LOST. In the spring, I would read them out loud to my friend Jess at school. She loved it.

{Black-bottomed cupcakes} She says they’re just for rainy days, but I would beg to differ.

{Triplet baby meerkats} Josh Harris’ blog is changing focus. (Just kidding. I thought they were cute, too, Josh.)
