Funny bunny

I don’t remember ever posing with the Easter Bunny as a child, so I’ve never thought about how they might look.

Scary or cute?

Definitely scary.

Hold fast to your kiddies,  parents.

Hoppin’

When Rory and I awoke this morning, we felt many eyes upon us…

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   I sense the eggs at my house have many guards. They’ll be no blatant candy consumption at my house!

(I’ll just leave the premises…)

Happy Easter!

Walking on egg shells

I am so grateful to not be a kid today.

Not because they are forced to grow up faster, or that the world is filled with far scarier things than when I was young.

No — it’s because children today are so sheltered.

Case in point:  some schools are calling Easter eggs “spring spheres’  to be PC…and the Sticky Egg can’t help but take this one a bit personally.

I understand the religious aspects of Easter can’t be taught to children in schools.  I get that.  I support that.

But Easter — like Christmas — is a holiday with a secular life.  The Easter Bunny and Santa Claus are traditions that can be completely divorced from their religious counterparts.

You can hide eggs and chomp chocolate bunnies at Easter time without acknowledging the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ…just as you can decorate a tree in your house and exchange gifts at Christmas without celebrating the birth of the Christ child.

I have Jewish friends that do both without experiencing any religious conflict.

So, let’s just take a breath, shall we — and make sure we’re not so busy protecting our kids that we don’t squeeze the life right out of ’em.

(Spring spheres?  I never…)

Tweet this

It’s no secret that Conan — and, for that matter, all the late-night talk shows — are taped much earlier in the day.

(Sorry.  I thought you knew.  Oh, and the Easter Bunny?  He’s really Russell Brand.)

Lately Conan has been taking advantage of the early taping by having members of his staff ‘live tweet’ the show during its East Coast air time.

It’s pretty fun.  They open a thread on Twitter, make comments as events unfold on the show, and reply to tweets sent in by viewers.

Last night, Conan himself decided to lead the conversation.  It was quite the event; they announced it hours ahead of time.

Then he live tweeted the show…on Facebook.

Now, I know some people use the two social media interchangeably.  Their tweets post on Facebook and vice versa.  I’ve complained about it before in this space.

But Facebook fans of Team Coco, back me up on this one:  the endless stream of out-of-context one-liners that Conan posted from 11p-12a ET last night didn’t belong on Facebook.

They were tweets, not Facebook status updates.  There is a difference, whether we like to admit it or not.

The Twitter audience is different.  The expectation in language and content is different.  The frequency, for cripes sake, is different.

I know I can hide Team Coco status updates on Facebook, just as I can hide Twitter feeds.  I can also walk away, which is what I chose to do.

I’m just surprised that an entertainer who has been so social media savvy throughout his career — and even more so when his career tanked — would make such an amateur mistake.


If March is mad…

So, I’ve been sequestered inside a conference room all day, and what do I discover when I am finally released into the world?

  • The voice of “Charlie’s Angels,” John Forsythe, has died.
  • Olivia Newton-John’s long-lost-at-sea boyfriend is alive.
  • “Two and a Half Men” is losing star Charlie Sheen.
  • Dayton won the NIT, defeating North Carolina.

I guess that’s what I get for working on Good Friday.

With all this wackiness happening today, it makes me wonder what the holiday weekend has in store.

Saturday has the Final Four (Go Butler!), and Sunday the Easter Bunny (Go candy!).

Let’s see what leftover March Madness spills over into this first weekend of April.
