    This holiday... it seems awkward to me. Just kind of strange.
    I mean, so many places are open. It almost doesn't seem like a real holiday, but... fake. Like an illusion.
    Mmmkay, I'm weird. I'll go hide in a hole and munch on my Easter chocolate that I wish everyone would just come and take away. :eek:

    Well, Happy Easter everyone!

    When I was growing up, almost nothing was open on Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year's Day.

    I remember eating those hard-boiled eggs for the rest of the week. Then, suddenly, they had these plastic eggs that could be used for the Easter egg hunts. They didn't smell nearly as bad 1 month later when no one found them.

    This weekend is Easter and also part of Passover. Still a week to go for those who celebrate Greek Orthodox Easter.

    Is there a separate Greek Orthodox Easter bunny?

    happy kids screaming and running around because they are hopped-up on sugar highs from corporate scams to sell more candy because they are printed in pastel shades to associate with a holiday that has lost much of its sacred meaning to easter bunnies and butterflies Day :rolleyes:

    that was a tad long and cynical, but that's what you get from seeing people buy this crap non-stop at your job..:p

    Agreed, agreed.
    But I'm being a hypocrite. *glares at plastic Easter egg*
    Who thought that up anyways? Plastic eggs? People will buy plastic anything I guess. :rolleyes:
    I'm just depressed that school is back tomorrow. Ugh.
    Persuasive English paper rough draft due tomorrow. XP

    We took advantage of the lack of crowds today and made our first visit to the newly reopened Getty Villa in Malibu, where the Getty Foundation has its collection of Greek, Roman, and Etruscan antiquities. It's a very cool museum and it was a perfect Southern California day (see my photo).

    The Villa is a replica of the Villa dei Papiri in Herculaneum, which was buried in the eruption of Vesuvius in the year 79 but not excavated until the 20th century.

    Given all that history, I couldn't resist defacing one of the ancient Greek vases so future generations would know I had been there!

    Actually, they have a kid's area with plastic vases, modeled after those in the museum, on which visitors are invited to do their own Grecian designs and drawings. "Q" isn't a Greek letter but it looked good anyway.
