Amuse-Bouches [Links I Love]: March 30 – April 10
Here’s the latest list of stuff I found interesting on the interwebz, March 30 through April 10:
- You Can’t Tell the Attorney General She Has an Epic Butt, But Here’s What You CAN Do
There is a part of every single day – and that is not hyperbole – when I wish I could channel Lindy West. The woman writes with the perfect combination of sass, humor, and barbs while still being incredibly articulate and NOT GIVING AN INCH to assholes. I cannot say how much I love her. This piece is but one example of why.

- It’s finally Spring in Tuscany!
This month's Italy Roundtable topic is SPRING, which we chose because of the season – which Alexandra celebrates with this gorgeous photo-laden post on spring in Tuscany.
- The Roman Spring of Tennessee Williams
Tennessee Williams may be most famously linked to the American South, but as Melanie reminds us with this post – he was also inspired by Rome in the spring.
- Italy Roundtable: Spring in My Step
Rebecca may have lived in Italy for ages now, but it turns out she still exercises like an American.
- Hot Springs in Southern Tuscany
Did you know there are, like, a bazillion hot springs in Tuscany? Well, there are. Let Gloria guide you to her favorites in the southern part of the region.
- Italy Blogging Roundtable: Springing to Confusion
And this month we're welcoming our first new addition to the Italy Roundtable since it started – Kate of Driving Like a Maniac, who is righteously funny and who lives in Sicily.
- Siena cathedral opens up sky section to visitors
In another episode of "no matter how old Italy is and how many people have already visited, there's always something new to explore," a section of the uppermost part of Siena's cathedral is now going to be open to visitors – it's been off-limits for centuries.

- This is Tuscany too: Monte Amiata
Gloria's Italy Roundtable post for March was a little delayed, but it was worth the wait. It's a beautiful profile of Tuscany's highest mountain, Monte Amiata.
