MENTAL NOTE

"Though we cannot make our sun stand still, yet we will make him run."
Blue, resist the urge to use facebook. You can do it. Good luck.
Cats and dogs can be friends. So can cowboys and indians. So can we.
Why try to be the best when there's no hierarchy in heaven?

Easter Day... Such a Fun Day!

Hello, friends. It's Easter Day — such a fun day! — and Wondering Me was wondering what to write about. Yes, sir.  Yes, ma'am.

So I munched on an Oats 'N Honey granola bar.

Nothing. 

I gulped down a supersized pizza and a bottle of milk and maybe some Belgian chocolates.

Nothing. Now what? 

Frustrated with my embarrassing lack of inspiration, I said to myself, "You know what, Blue, do something unexpected. Don't be Blue. Get rid of that mask and don't rant like an ant. You might also not want to announce Blue's Easter Island : The Reboot That Is Really A Prequel. Not just yet. Be humane. Ghostbusters: The Chick Flick is more than they can take, not to mention Batman V. Superman: The Dawn of Depression And Stuff That Gets Blown Up. Be serious if only for a day. Don't talk about movies."

Where are those chocolates? I need my chocolates.

What I wanted to say is... I hope you're lucky enough to find yourselves re-ensconced in your favorite Bora Beach Building surrounded by your loved ones on Easter Day 2016. Your own home will do too, I know. (I always kid when I'm being serious.) Be kind to each other, and think about how blessed you are to share this moment together. The way I see it, Easter Day should not be about stuffing ourselves. It should not be about the stuff we buy and put on our table. It is not a commercial orgasm in space. It should be about us and the people we love. Switch off that phone and forget about ME. Live the moment. We are here now.

Happy Easter everyone.

Blue

    What fun
    Way to be
    At ones sea
    No reboot
    To give a hoot
    No phone
    To go times two at the tone
    Just be with we
    We three
    Or however many
    Cause Ghostbuster chick flicks we don't need any

    1. Times two
      At your shoe
      Switch off that crappy S6
      It's just a bag of tricks
      Three sounds like fun too
      I could send Scooby Doo

    2. A trio you say
      I think it was 5 on display
      Buffy even joined in
      For 1 and a sequel spin

  3. A day like any other day
    Relaxation is to be the way
    The bunny is watching
    In the house one is resting
    Words a far cry for time
    Not to be stirred by alarms
    None that others should bother
    Wishing everyone Happy Easter
    And to you Blue
    Right on cue!

      If every day were like this one
      My life would be fun
      Not that it is not
      There's a lot at my spot
      The bunny is watching or so I hear
      Inducing a healthy dose of fear
      A reboot in disguise
      Still beats a bunch of flies
      I hope your day was fun too

  4. Easter should be about the Resurrection.
    But do let the kids have their chocolate bunnies.
    And I already watched Batman and Superman blow stuff up.
    Have a Blessed Easter!

    1. I knew you'd say just that, and of course you're right. That is the original idea of Easter.

      So, tell me... how depressing was Batman V. Superman compared to, say, The Dark Knight?

      Thanks for stopping by, Alex.

  6. By the looks of that blue bunny, he ate all Belgian supplies of Belgian chocolates :)
    Pizza and milk is such a strange combo, what did your tummy say?

    1. It said, "YIKES!" What did you expect?

    2. diarrhoea waterworks, that is what I'd expect from such a combo :) But what do I know, I'm allergic to milk, even had a surgery as a two month old baby because my parents fed me with it :(

  7. Be kind to each other? What kind of peacenik crap is this?

    I've always wondered why the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, and, presumably, God, all had to indepently spy on people. Maybe the Tooth Fairy does, too.

    Seems like they could contract out their spying. Maybe even handle most of iit electronically now.

    Someone should start a company. Santa's got to be tired of hiding in bushes outside some kid's bedroom window in Tulsa by now.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. They did contract it out a long, long time ago. To the government. Santa is tired, alright, but sitting on the couch next to his wife 24/7 is getting a real burden on the old fart. It's his idea of escapism. Disturbing but true.

    2. somebody ate silly shrooms for dindins again, methinks, Blue :)

  8. Well bless that Blue-fattened-up Easter Bunny's soul. Make it a chocolate day
    for all. Be King for a day and make it a proclamation. Chocolate for all except me. I've never especially liked chocolate, even as a kid. I'd take a salty soup or a potato chip over chocolate any day. But Chocolate Robyn will like it.
    Celebrate the day, my dear Mr. Blue

    1. No chocolate for my friend Manzanit? Say it ain't so at your show. Ah... a salty soup... You can count me in! It only goes to show that everything is relative. Soup and chocolate included.

      Thinking of you and a special plant :)

  9. Oh my...a real Easter miracle. Your RSS feed had disconnected and I haven't been getting alerts when you published new posts. It could be said that a good blog follower would have noticed but let's not go there. Anyway... That seems to have miraculously taken care of itself as this post magically appeared in my feed reader.

    Hope you have your own Easter miracles today. Maybe finding a solid center chocolate bunny instead of those cheap crappy hollow ones. Have a great day!!!

    I will keep an eye out for your posts. Well not out... like out of my head ...but you know what I mean.

  14. Happy belated Easter to you too. But seriously, can we talk about the vile tire fire that is the garbage heap Batman v. Superman? If you haven't seen it, please don't, it's really super terrible.

  15. For me, Easter is a day of chocolate, family, and music. At least that's what it was this year. I hope your day was super fun, and that you'll send me any extra Cadbury mini eggs you have lying around...

  20. Happy Belated Easter Blue! We kept it low key this year. No party, no big egg hunt. Just a little dinner at the in-laws. Perfect Easter, in every way.

    1. is Theresa saying they might have had a small egg hunt?

      Delete
    2. I'm guessing hunting for smaller eggs is trickier than hunting for the bigger ones?

    3. No egg hunt at all at my house. The grandmother did a small one though, so they weren't totally without this year.

  23. I was grateful my children with each other this year even though they weren't with us. And I was grateful Devin and I had each other. It just seemed right. Like a preview of what's to come in life. Be well, Blue! Be you!
