Grown-Up Saturday Morning Cartoons: Weekly Article Roundup for April 14-20

Good morning, lovely people, and happy Saturday!

I’d say that it’s an especially happy Saturday after last night’s capture of the remaining Boston bombing suspect. That piece of awesome news ended what was generally a week of awful news (warning: that link goes to an article which makes prolific use of the f-bomb; if you’re not a fan of such things, don’t read it) on a much-needed high note.

Also awesome? We had a huge thunderstorm last night. I love me a good thunderstorm, and this one didn’t disappoint.

Yesterday my mom and I went to both Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s for an epic food shopping extravaganza, which means that this morning will soon be completed by GF strawberry pancakes. If you hear a strange noise right now, that’d be my stomach growling in anticipation.

In the meantime, though, here’s this week’s article round-up — grab a beverage (or some pancakes) and enjoy!
