The morning news had an Easter egg with - wait for it - the image of Jesus!




I'd hold out for the Mary egg!

I bought "Foreign Affairs" when it came out in the 70s.

Then Small Change
and everything else.

I had the chance to catch many live shows
in clubs and small theaters.

They were "other worldly" experiences at times.

Lucky you. I never did get a chance to see him perform.

Rain Dogs, I think, was the first album of his I bought. Actually it might have been the first album I ever bought, period.

I know it's a graham cracker, but there are only so many photos of Peeps s'mores to be found online! (I did discover a whole world of truly sick and bizarre things people do to and with Peeps in the kitchen while searching for it, though...some particularly amazing photos of what happens to them in the microwave.) Anyways, Peeps aren't kosher on account of the gelatin, so I've never actually had one. Which I gather is no great loss.

We always splurge on those hand-baked round matzah for Passover. They are pretty pricey though, especially when you're having 26 Seder guests like we will tomorrow night.

We just did Bedikat Chametz with our kids tonight, have you ever done that? That's where you hide 10 pieces of bread around the house, turn out the lights, then the kids go around with candles hunting for them. Kind of like the Jewish equivalent of an Easter egg hunt, I guess. Our sons were really sweet, they both simply pretended not to see the really easy ones, then took their three-year-old sister's hands and helped to her find them. It's nice when they get old enough to not just think competitively about it like that.

Peeps are best if you let them get a little stale. Better texture.
I'm a peep connoisseur.

Calling it "Bunnies and flowers" is a copout, it symbolizes a holiday, but I still think it is ridiculous to take it down, it isn't a bad thing to celebrate life.

you mean like the afikomen thing? or is it different? because we did the afikomen thing at my grandparents' house one year when I was young. I remember I was really competitive and was so proud when I found it first...and then my grandpa turned around and gave all his grandkids a dollar, even though I found it. man, I was pissed off.

irvine...I kind of like Peeps. they're delicious in a gross sort of way.

No, the afikoman thing is different, that takes place the next day during Seder, when the kids "steal" the afikoman (piece of matzah) and hide it. Then immediately before the closing prayers and songs, the adults search for the afikoman (and dutifully fail to find it), at which point the kids "ransom" the afikoman by bargaining for something in return. Sounds like maybe your grandparents sort of blended the two? Obviously there are some intentional parallels between them. But Bedikat Chametz is the culmination of the clearing-the-house-of-leaven (hence the use of bread) that precedes Passover, whereas the afikoman ritual involves matzah and is part of the Seder.

Anyhow speaking of Seder, time for me to get offline and scamper back, as we'll be starting soon and I'm supposedly "just checking on a few important emails" right now.

The Easter Bunny is arrested for attacking a woman.

This actually happened.

This isn't a joke.

Saturday night at the Edison Mall, a 6-foot tall 280 pound Easter Bunny and his assistant were arrested by Fort Myers Police for an altercation. For the Johansson family, it's a holiday memory they'll never forget - even though they would like to.

"It was something like you would see in a movie," Robert Johansson said. "The next thing you know my wife is sucker punched by the manager, she is pulled to the ground by her hair and then the Easter Bunny jumps on top and starts punching my wife in the head."

Arthur McLure, 22, and Crystal Frechette, 25 were charged by the Forth Myers Police with battery and disturbing the peace.

McLure listed his occupation as the Easter Bunny.

Johansson said the incident started because the Easter Bunny decided to close shop 15 minutes early on Saturday night with a line of children and families still waiting. Robert Johansson said his wife, Erin, approached the manager to complain when she was knocked to the ground.

The Edison Mall released this statement concerning the matter: "We have been pleased over the years to make a visit with the Easter Bunny part of the springtime experience at Edison Mall. We were shocked and dismayed at the events of Saturday evening at the Easter photo set, and it is particularly disconcerting that families with young children witnessed the highly unfortunate incident. We have been in contact with the company that operates the Easter photo business at our mall and will continue to cooperate fully with the Fort Myers Police Department as they move forward with their investigation."

Robert Johansson said his wife is still extremely sore from the incident.
