Best Things I've Read 4/4/16

Whoops! This apparently is now a thing for me! I realized I missed my Monday post. I was camping in Death Valley (potential list to come) and at the IACP conference in LA all week long (w/fellow listers @seantimberlake @pbsfood @shauna - potential list to come as well) and I just got back home today. I somehow still read a these cool gems.
  1. Artisanal drinkery and 24 other dining terms that need to go away
    Alright, this is a cheat because it's an illustration. But it's very true. As a former copywriter I hated using these terms but often did...for fast food and fast casual establishments. Sorry guys. I am the reason why these are now meaningless... (Except for the word MOIST. Sorry, I'm keeping that one alive.) http://www.atlantamagazine.com/dining-news/artisanal-drinkery-and-24-other-dining-terms-that-need-to-go-away/
  2. Advice from the Creator of Calvin and Hobbes
    Again, another cheat because it's a cartoon. Also it's old. But I re-read it this week and it resonated so much with me. I think it even was in my subconscious as I brought up points from it when I was talking about life w/ @shauna & @sizemorenicki yesterday! http://highexistence.com/images/view/illustrated-advice-from-bill-watterson-creator-of-calvin-and-hobbes/
  3. Simpsons' Smithers gay reveal was inspired by the writer's son.
    So heartwarming! Also the Grindr text is hilarious. @mattselman please tell this guy he is awesome and the best dad ever. http://nypost.com/2016/04/01/simpsons-smithers-gay-reveal-was-inspired-by-the-writers-son/
  4. What I Learned from Kristi Yamaguchi
    This resonated with me as an Asian-American that grew up in the Midwest. I remember grade schools friends of mine saying out loud "why is this Asian girl skating for America? Shouldn't it be an American?" with me standing right next to them. And my 3rd grade self being ashamed, confused and so angry all at the same time. http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/03/31/magazine/what-i-learned-from-kristi-yamaguchi.html
