What Easter Candy Are You?
Cadbury Creme Egg
You're the type that stole little brother's easter basket so that you could have MORE CANDY!
What Easter Candy Are You?
I bought some Peeps last night, but not to eat. I'm going to entertain my son (who hates Peeps) by doing some Peep Fighting by putting the Peeps in the microwave. It's for scientific purposes, okay....
None of this is mentioned on the official Peeps site...hmmm, I wonder why? Aren't they proponets of furthering scientific studies of the children of this nation?
You can also find a recipe for Chocolate and Peeps Pie here at the NPR web site. It sounds absolutely atrocious to me. You may think it is barbaric to microwave Peeps, but the official site shows Peeps Fondue, complete with skewering the little buggers with sticks and dipping them in hot melted chocolate. Now that's barbaric! Actually, then entire Easter candy thing, with all the eating of animal-shaped candies is a bit sick.
I need to dye my Easter eggs today. The only problem is, I hate eating hard boiled eggs, specifically cold hard boiled eggs. So I'm going to find a bunch of people to pass them off on!

You Know You're From Indiana When...
You drive for three hours and the scenery outside doesn't change. There's three feet of snow on the ground and school is still in session. You only go to the mall once a year 'cause it takes too long to get there. While driving all you see is corn. People still have Christmas decorations up at Easter. You start saying to yourself "More than corn in Indiana my butt." Anyone with a cell phone looks out of place. Walking through Wal-Mart with two carts full of kids is normal. Wnyone with a tan is rich. The hip hang-out place is McDonald's. There really is more than corn in Indiana. There?s soybeans, too. When you plan an orgy and a Euchre game breaks out. A restaurant has an invisible wall in the non-smoking section and you believe it works. Speeding consists of 2 miles over the speed limit. You think you don't have to use a turn signal on your car because you don't use it on your tractor. You build your dream house on a cornfield, and you considered it posh. You warsh your clothes and you think George Warshington was the first president. You're proud to be called a Hoosier, even if you don't know what one is. You have no problem spelling or pronouncing "Terre Haute" Detassling was your first job. Bailing hay, your second. You can stack hay, swim in the pond to clean off, and then have the strength to play a couple of games of hoops all in the same day. You say things like "catty-wumpus" and "kitty-corner". You own a dirtbike or a ATV. You live in a city ... and there's a cornfield in your backyard. High school basketball game draws a bigger crowd on the weekend nights than movie theaters. You can see at least 2 basketball hoops from your yard. You can name every one of Bob Knight's "exploits" over the last few years. You shop at Marsh. Damon Bailey was your childhood hero. The biggest question of your youth was "IU or Purdue?" Indianapolis is the "big city". "Getting caught by a train" is a legitimate excuse for being late to school. People at your high school chewed tobacco. Everyone knows who the town cop is, where he lives, and whether he is at home or on duty. You actually know what the CART vs IRL debate is about and have taken a side. To you, a raccoon is simply a "coon". The vehicle of choice in your area is not a car, but a pickup. Someone you know is BIG John Mellencamp fan. You've been to the Covered Bridge Festival. To you, a tenderloin is not an expensive cut of beef, but a big, salty, breaded piece of pork served on a bun with pickles. You call a green bell pepper a "mango". Sometimes, you call the toilet the "commode" or the "stool". In the fall, one of your favorite pranks was corning cars. You know what FFA and 4H stand for. You know what chip-and-seal is, and your high school was located on just such a road. You go the county fair every night of it's week-long duration. You can say "French Lick" without laughing out loud. There's actually a college near you named "Ball State." The last "g" is silent in any word ending in "ing." You think the state Bird is Larry. You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Indiana.

No, I am not 40! I always thought the recommedation for having your first mammogram was at age 40. But after my general practice physician and OB/GYN suggested I have one done, I did it. I'd hate to put it off, only to find out later that I shouldn't have. If not just for myself, for my son. If I died, he'd have to go live with his father! So I went today and had it done. Don't listen to the horror stories they tell about it. It was a piece of cake, and didn't hurt in the least. Honest! Now, I know I have a high pain tolerance, but there wasn't even an indication of anything even slightly painful. B told me it was all in the RT (radiological technologist), and if they had a good technique. I suppose she'd know, she did mammograms about a million years ago when she was in the Air Force.

So go and visit The Breast Cancer Site and help fund free mammograms. (No, it is not an urban legend!)

Stuff Portrait Friday
This week on SPF, Kristine is doing a PC version of Easter. Go visit her at Random and Odd to find out more.
You can click on any of the photos to view in a larger window.
1. Your Peeps - introduce us to some of your friends outside of the blog world.
A group of about 7 of us got together and went on a cruise. We spent the week drinking and sunning- my kind of vacation!

2. Something Fuzzy - *shaking head* you guys keep it clean.

Gatsby was sitting so nicely out on the deck, just sunning herself...until-

She caught sight of the "evil taunting squirrel." And then proceeded to jump up into one of the trees- the last time she did that, we ended up taking her to the vet when she hurt her paw. I made her get down...so she gazed longingly- just itching for a taste of the ETS (evil taunting squirrel.) Posted by Picasa

She finally gave up and laid back down on "her" lounger. But not without getting her nails dirty- and she had just been given a bath!

Posted by Picasa 3. Something/Someone you want to dye/die - Yeah, shut up, you’ve thought of it!

More of a place I want to go when I die. My wishes are to be cremated and instead of sitting on someone's mantle, I'll take a beautiful crypt like this. Unless I can come up with someplace perfect to have my ashes sprinkled!

Now, I might reconsider my previous stance on Peeps. At least this photo does make them look a bit more appealing. ( And no, it is not me in this photo!) You can see an entire Flickr "Peep-tastic" photo group here. Posted by Picasa

Holliday Park
Holliday Park is a nice, large and diverse park here in town. There are several trails to hike on, along with views of the White River. There are lots of cozy little nooks, which make for a nice place for a blanket, a date, a picnic basket and a bottle of wine.... Posted by Picasa
