Happy Easter All!!!
I have always been a bit confused about Easter. I mean, is it a Christian Holiday? A Jewish one? An Egg one? Seems to involve a lot of chocolate, which is always good in my book. But it MOVES. Never the same day every year. Weird, eh? I didn't know that years ago when I double booked my Boss, thinking all he has is an Easter Event, and that is in May....At least it was the year before.
I did good on the Easter Basket front this year, judging from the smiles. I really like doing the Easter Basket for Small Girl Growing Larger. Used to be dead easy when the coolest thing ever was the Ultimate Barbie and some shoes for her. Now I have to ponder a bit. Sunscreen. Check. Postit notes. Check. New Twilight DVD. Way check. Lady Gaga cd. Oh yes.
The gig last night got a bit strange. First set went long and rocked and rolled and was all one could wish. Second set, not so many people, but they were into it. Then we took a break. And they ALL left. No one came in. No third set. Huh?
Here's the coolest thing. All Irish Pubs have TV, and they all play Sports. No one much WATCHES them, but they seem to have to have sports. Sigh. Boring. (Except Kips in Minneapolis, they had so many TV's they could always be counted on to put something good on for me on one of them)
The only time I put my foot down is wrestling. Nearly naked men rolling around on the floor together? Ick. Guys, in the privacy of your own homes, go for it, hey, whatever. But I can't play and watch it.
Last night the sport ended, and no one noticed. The strangest show EVER came on. Seemed to be a Hero, who had lost all his clothes except for his tight pants, who was captured by a villain, clearly evil, who was a 6 foot blond women in a leather catsuit and corset. And there were two really hot dark haired ladies, clearly good, who wore sort of Camelot type dresses, and camped out with an army, which included a Wizard Type.
I think the Evil Lady took over the mind of the Hero, and when one of the Dark Haired Ladies tried to come save him, he had to fight her, clearly struggling with his mind about this. I think there was some sort of Evil Burning Wand as well.
What the heck WAS this show? I have to know. This was some quality entertainment. Survivor was on after it, and I think it came on around 9 or 10. Cable channel 45, here anyway.
(Yes, I know, why am I watching TV while doing a show, but some of these ballads go ON...Can't help it.)
Today is as lovely as a Spring Day. Heck, might well BE a Spring Day, and I found some more frames with honey on them to extract, so I think that is my Plan.
Hope yours is as nice...
Love and Easter,
