i had a horrible, horrible case of food poisoning on Thursday night/Friday morning that left me incapacitated for most of the day on Friday. so i suffered, too.

on Saturday i rose from the bed and was able to walk around a bit as my strength returned.

and today, we have a big gay brunch to attend. the couple takes the week off beforehand to prepare for the brunch and they make something like 100 individual lemon tarts and marinate 30 lbs of brisket.

glad my stomach is back on track.

your own little reenactment?

good to hear you were resurrected on the third day and among the living again.

Same here in Canada - pretty much everything is closed on Good Friday and Sunday. As well, government offices are closed on Monday.

I kind of enjoy it. Things being closed = less running for me to do, and that's always a good thing. I'm staying home today to clean my house.

I celebrated Zombie Jesus Weekend by making sure to get extra smashed on Thursday night as I had Friday off.

I slept in (arrive home from vacation after at 20 hour drive at 11pm last night and then cleaned and unpacked before bed), then went to my aunt's for a family lunch. After that I had to scramble to finish a web site project for someone who was boarding my dogs. We picked them up at 5:30pm and I handed her the disc with the finalized project.

My grandpa died at 11 this morning.

Thanks. We weren't that close, but it's upsetting that no one saw it coming and never really got to say goodbye.

Yeah, you know it is a strange thing when an old person dies kind of suddenly, because on the one hand, it's not surprising, but on the other hand, it can be. After multiple strokes and a heart attack and Alzheimer's, my grandmother died last Sunday of the flu, so in a sense that was a shock although it also wasn't.

Only a few essential services are allowed to trade in Australia on Good Friday, such as service stations. I understand it that permission has to be given. Similar rules apply for Christmas Day. They're two days where you will find all towns and cities deserted.

I went to Easter Vigil Mass like I do every year-I enjoy that Mass

Yesterday I didn't feel all that well. I did some cleaning and watched some baseball, basketball, and golf. I ate zero candy because I'm trying to lose some weight. I just hope I can avoid the half priced candy, which I didn't after Valentine's Day.

^^ I actually wish everything would pretty much shut down for all of easter . . . be nice to have one little gap in the year where you really can't do to much else other than just be . . . my kids really freaked out when they realised that nothing was open on Good Friday . . . they are growing up in a world where its all accessible all of the time . . . and I just wonder whether the whole instant gratification thing is not a titchy bit unhealthy . . . and I know it would be a difficult time for people without families etc but should that not force the rest of us to do the good deed and invite those people in to our homes???

*jumpsoffsoapboxandgoesbacktotopic*

we visited the mother-in-law who has just moved up the coast . . .helped unpack boxes, clean things, move furniture and all that jazz . . .kids found the daggiest most politically incorrect playground in all of nsw and adored it (big ole fashioned metal climbing frame with firemans pole, ladder, big ole slide and monkey bars . . . no soft fall, no safety grip no nothing ) . . . then yesterday we had a big lunch of fish and salad and sat around playing uno and monopoly while the rained heaved from the heavens . .. gorgeous weekend in all and I'm a little sad that its over!


Liesje and anitram, I'm very sorry for your losses

Good to see the easter spirit is alive and well within you

Did you suffer on Friday or have some kind of out of body experience on Thursday night ??
