It’s April, fool! My birth month and the beginning of The Fort’s 3rd month online! There’re plenty of reasons for us to be cheerful this time of year – spring is finally here! Easter eggs! Everything is pastel! Daffodils! And here are a few more things to make you smile (if not just to help you procrastinate a little. Sorry!):


  • Cats can be such assholes.
  • I’ve just re-read the Harry Potter books, so these Troll Dumbledore strips are extra hilarious right now.
  • Fight the spam! 10 Minute Mail gives you a temporary email address to use for all those online services that require a sign-up.
  • Mood Box is a service that lets you send yourself a fashionable little gift on a monthly basis. They cater exclusively to women at the moment, but sign up and they’ll put a hamper together for you based on your current mood and preferences so that every month is a surprise. Want.
  • “Nearly three in one women between the ages 15-24 has used the pull-out method as her primary form of birth control.” Gigi Engle explains why this is terrifying.
  • So World Book Day came and went, and this little boy dressed up as Christian Grey – complete with blindfold and cable tie props. Poor kid will have a hard time living that one down at his 21st.
  • Need a new project? Check out PS. I Made This for some DIY inspo/envy. I looove these embellished headphones.
  • The Mashable staff estimated the average penis size with some demonstrative doodling!
  • Apparently we have a second ‘brain’ in our bellies! “It is this brain that could be responsible for your craving under stress for crisps, chocolate and cookies.”
  • Angelina Jolie was really amping up the awesome this March. She wrote this op-ed piece for the New York Times about her latest preventative surgery, and gave this warm, sweet speech at the Kids Choice Awards.
