I am forever proposing some sort of mass communal living arrangement among my friends, so this article on the concept of family and tribes is really interesting. On that note, the Club Creatures leave for their new life in New York City tomorrow -- send them good wishes! (Their long-term future looks bright, but in the near future they're facing a 12-hour drive with a cat and a dog; ergo, they need all the good vibes they can get.)

From Bunny: a new Facebook application encourages you to "sacrifice" ten friends for a free Whopper. So much for the communal lifestyle idea!

From Cassandra: thoughts on the future of the OED, stars going ballistic across the galaxy, and the artwork of Yellow Springs artist Leo Hong Mao.

From Mignon: the daily routines of creative types. Also the website Divine Cosmos, which has a great question on its front page at the moment: "Is there a miniature stargate in your own brain?" I certainly hope so.

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone! See you Monday.
