Weekend Reads: April Showers

GUYS IT  HAS BEEN A MONTH. I've been busy with school (yikes Statistics!), with work (spring always seems to be a madhouse), and generally just so much going on. Is it just me, or does April suck? (Possibly even more than the Yankees? ;))

Thank you, Man Repeller, for this sarcastic and amazing article that made me smile. And If I Were A Ballerina (via NYer) True confession: I got a Unicorn Frapuccino. (But I didn't like it.) This Elle article had me giggling about it. This Olive Garden date tweetstorm had me dying. The ending is perfect: Readers, I married him. :) (via Mashable) How to develop your wine skills (via COJ)

What Kabul, Afghanistan used to look like. "The Kabul in William Podlich's photographs is an almost unrecognizable place -- a bustling capital of nattily attired men and women, many wearing Western dress; modern cars; and green parks." A nighttime map of the world (via Kottke) How Biking can Save the World (via FastCo) A NY Waterfall road trip. Cool! (via Only in Your State)

Why do we love the music we heard as teenagers? (via Slate) Salon Etiquette (Violet Grey)  Ask your friend for help choosing your profile pic (via ManRepeller) Turning negative thinkers into positive ones. (via NYTs) Not sure why this made me tear up, but man, I hope all of my friends who are gay have experiences like this woman's when they come out to their parents. Though, now, I think it might be my friends giving that experience to their gay children. (via COJ)
