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.

Happy Bunny Day!

If you’re hanging out at home with family and friends and looking for a ‘bunny of a film,’ I recommend Miss Potter, starring Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor.

It wasn’t a big box office hit in 2006, and I haven’t seen it on premium channels much, either.  That’s why I bought the DVD.

I love it that much.

It tells the story of Beatrix Potter, the author of the beloved children’s book, “The Tale of Peter Rabbit,” and her quest for personal independence and publication at the turn of the century — no small achievement for a female in 1902.

She is assisted by rookie editor Norman Warne (McGregor), who publishes her books and becomes much more than a business colleague.

Their growing relationship is not happy news to everyone, and the movie tells the tale with old-world charm and romance, for which I am a sucker.  I think you will like it, too.  It is Easter, after all…

Enjoy the sweetness.

Sweeeeeet

HAPPY LEAP DAY!

Thanks to last week’s episode of 30 Rock, February 29th has a whole new meaning to me.

It’s no longer just an extra day on the calendar every four years…or that day when, according to Irish folklore, women supposedly have ‘permission’ to ask men to marry them.

Lame.

No, Leap Day is right up there with Halloween, Easter and Valentine’s Day now, because it’s a holiday….

…all about CANDY!

Thank you, Leap Day Williams.

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…)

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.
