Merry Easter!

In case you don't believe me when I say that my office is a hot house, let me show you my poinsettia which actually looks about 342% better than my photography skilz let on.

If you are tempted to say 'Meh, big deal', let me remind you that today is Good Friday, aka April 10th. I have been custodian of that plant for 4 months and by now it should be bare stems in a landfill but it still looks gorgeous.


Suburban Debbie had a post this week about all the things that people do while driving. I'm probably as guilty as anyone of not giving the world beyond my windshield my undivided attention. One of my worst offenses was reading a magazine while driving across North Dakota. If you just went 'Ohmigod, that woman has a death wish!' you have probably never driven a freeway in that state. You can pretty much engage the cruise control, tie down the steering wheel and take a nap for 2 or 3 hundred miles. But never mind that particular piece of my lurid driving past, you have never really been a passenger on the edge until you have ridden to lunch with a paraplegic who takes calls while driving.

"Um, dude? Isn't that your brake hand?"

Then again, it gave me a good excuse to order the biggest, chocolatiest dessert on the menu. I mean who wants to die with a stomach full of 'fast', even if it is Good Friday.

Finally, a Friday funny:

Thanks Marial! - Who I am happy to report is high and dry in Fargo. For the most part the dikes held and the sewer system kept up but they are bracing for another round of river rise. How unfair is it that they actually have to hope that is does NOT warm up any time soon?

Peace, Love, 4-day Weekend for Jane!

Nice looking plant.

Love the bunny cartoon!

If that plant were mine, it would have definitely been in the trash pile a couple of months ago. Have never been able to keep poinsetteas alive for very long so I commend you!

Happy Easter!

Meh indeed - I'm impressed - I couldn't keep a poinsettia alive that long!
I drive back from MA with one eye open and the other taking a nap.
Enjoy your time off!

I had no idea those things lasted past December 23rd. You're amazing.

Just read your comment at my place. Timber and I take no offense to your "other side of the Pecos" remark. In fact, he asked me to say to you and P.A., "Yo-yo-yo! Wassup DAWGS?"

The chocolate bunnies is my very most favorite easter cartoon of all time, I still laugh like a moron everytime I see it.

Noanie said...

Forgot to leave you a Merry Easter greeting - enjoy!

Debbie said...

You've actually ridden in a car with someone like that? Oh, my goodness. I'm scared just thinking about it.
Happy Easter!

Angie Ledbetter said...

Can I borrow your poinsettia? My Christmas tree's still up! :)

*finally veers off the Bunny Trail to return to some serious "blopping"*

I trust the Easter Bunny was good to you? Great! Just wanted you to know that, April 10th being my birthday, a large slab of Birthday Poppy Seed Cake was eaten in your honor! (Wish you could have made the party-- I'm still sweeping up seeds!)


That is the funniest chocolate bunny cartoon I have ever seen. I would buy a poster of that.
