Random Dozen, Easter edition

Here we go again. I am too lazy to copy the special logo that goes along with this today so I am using the old one.

1. How do you feel about the marshmallow Easter Peeps?
I love peeps….they taste like chicken.

2. Chickens are notoriously nervous creatures. When you are nervous, what is the best way to calm down?
Can I say drugs? Nothing calms me down like a Valium. Just kidding. Quiet time is what I need to calm down.

3. People say, "April showers bring May flowers." Do you enjoy Spring rains?
I do because they wash away lots of pollen. I have hay fever.

4. When I was randomly flipping through TV channels this week, I saw a show in which tattoo parlor employees received tattoos of a co-worker's face on their bodies. I can't imagine having a portrait of a colleague tattooed on me. But if someone forced you to receive a portrait tattoo (face only) of anyone, who would it be? Why?
How about the invisible man. Does that count? I don’t care for ink.

5. Would you rather have a tattoo (any kind) or a nose ring?
Nose rings are for pigs and cows. I am sorry if one of you has a child with one or God forbid you have one but that is the way I feel.

6. Do you have any special plans for Easter?
Not really this year. We haven’t even discussed what we will be eating and that is a first. I would like a nice salad.

7. Cadbury Eggs or Reese Eggs?
Buck buck buck buck….Do I need to say more? PS. I already ate mine. I snooped, I found, I ate.

8. What was the last thing/person you took a picture of?
Oh I love you Linda. I was hoping there was a way that I could fit a brag in here. My youngest son had his band contest yesterday. They ended up with a Superior. I am so proud of him and the other members of the band who got a Superior yesterday. Oops I already said that.

9. What book are you reading now, or what was the last one?
I read “Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls. I highly recommend it.

10. What do you think is the most difficult task when it comes to Spring cleaning?
Pulling weeds. My back is aching as I write this.

11. How many pairs of flip-flops do you own?
I think I have one pair but I can never find them because my boys are always borrowing them.

12. Which color makes you happiest?
Green, show me the money. LOL Seriously I just like green.

Bonus Joke (not part of the Random): Why did the Easter egg hide?
He was a little chicken!

So I guess we are supposed to add a joke here….

Why did the chicken cross the road?

To show the possums it could be done.

Have a great day,

You're so silly.

Tastes like chicken. Ha!

#4: agreed

And it doesn't surprise me in the LEAST that a gardener like yourself loves green so much.

Have a Happy Resurrection Day!

Pam Ponder said...

Thena said...

Never knew peeps tasted like chicken. LOL
I also forgot about pulling weeds, especially after getting stung by a wasp Monday.
My husbands cure for pulling weeds is round-up.

Too funny - all of it. You always lift my spirits Greg and for that I am grateful!

I love peeps - I am the only one in my family who just adores them! I was so thrilled when they started making them on other holidays! How great is that?

Have a blessed Easter - may we celebrate our Risen Savior!!
