Friday, March 25, 2005 :::
One year on Easter I got a Go-Bot. It was the best Easter ever. Another year my mom slipped some Chewy Circus Peanuts into our Easter baskets. That was the worst Easter ever. Peeps are no good either, but if you like them, you can always make your own with the official Peeps Marshmallow Maker.
Anyways, happy Easter.
Oh, and don't sneak up on the Easter Bunny.
P.S. I'm a little unclear. Back in Jesus school they told us that he rose from the dead on Easter morning, three days after being crucified. But since he was crucified on Good Friday in the early evening, then that's really less that 48 hours later. It ain't even two full days. Please 'splain.

Ok, And hour later and I can leave a commnet...
I just want to commend you for going that one step ABOVE the dead bunny photo. Hurrah!
And I didn't have none of the Jesus Schoolin, so your guess is as good as mine.

I don't remember much from Jesus school, but I remember: "On the third day he arose from the dead." Maybe he wasn't dead three full days, but was dead on three calendar days -- 1. Friday, died 2. Saturday, dead 3. Sunday, started dead but came back to life.
Just a guess.

Anonymous: Don't know why but I bust a gut laughing at your comment. "3. Sunday, started dead but came back to life." So funny!
Had much Jesus schoolin', still can't figure it out, still not on the band wagon with it. But the jelly belly jelly beans...I'm all over this holiday!
ps I don't like the peeps

By any chance was the year you got Chewy Circus Peanuts the same year you put your mom on the nudist colony mailing list?
If so, I think she got you back...

I know i'm in the minority on this, but i love peeps. finely aged peeps, to be exact. I split open the package and let them dry out a bit which gives them the satisfying crunchy texture i crave. extra crispy peeps. yum.
i love the bunny savior picture!

Hey, chewy circus peanuts rock! But yeah, Peeps pretty much suck. (Hm...haven't had a circus peanut sicne I was about 10 - suppose my judgment may have been skewed?)

It's all about co-opting the Hebrew Scriptures, babe. It's said in the Oldies that the savior will rise on the third day. J.C. reportedly rose on the third day. Dead on Friday at 3 pm, still dead (or apparently "harrowing Hell")on Saturday, Sunday's the third day. Whereupon He rolled over and said, "Just FIVE more minutes?"
My Easter sermon is blogged at:
I'm only promoting it because it involves a barnyard animal in a very heart-warming way.

yeah, Jesus rose from the dead on the third day, not after three days. like the other dude said, day one - dead, day two - dead, on the third day - rose from the dead.

I always thought circus peanuts were pretty nasty. Then, I realized one day that they are banana flavored and it was all clear why they were so icky. What made someone think that bright orange, squishy, banana-flavored, oversized peanuts would make a good candy?

Go-Bots aren't nearly as cool as Transformers. My brother would get the Transformers, because he was older than me, and I'd get Go-Bots. Then, I'd cry.

No Jesus schooling for me either. I have no idea.
I didn't know circus peanuts are banana flavored. I'm so glad I have never tried one now. Sicko.

We couldn't afford Transformers that often. GoBots were where it was at in my house. Transformers were for the rich kids with the fancy jeans and the Millenium Falcons.
I don't buy that third day business. Nobody counts days like that.
