Have a happy (hop-py? too punnerific?) weekend!

Friday, April 2, 2010

My dears, I do hope you have a fantastic weekend! San Diego is expected to be recovering from it's last big storm at this time, so I do believe some lovely spring days are coming. Even though I'm a Winter gal myself, beautiful spring days are appreciated. They're just so cheery and waiting to be filled, n'est-ce pas?

For those who celebrate it, Happy Easter! (And for those who are of the Judaic faith, a [semi-belated] happy Passover!)

I'm not a religious person. I never have been, so Easter has always been about the more...um...Hallmark-y ways. I have very fond memories of Easter egg hunts in the field behind the school in Belgium and outside the Lower School in Italy, consuming way too many chocolate bunnies than a child should (like Kinder eggs!  Childhood in a chocolate, my friends).  A very lovely memory--though perhaps not so for my brother--is Easter egg hunting at our house in Belgium; my mom would take Polaroid pictures (you know, when it was legit and not this hipsteryi'msoartsythrowbackbullshit) of the places she hid an egg and write the name below it.  Her intention was to make my brother and I read it, but as I was young and impatient I would look at the picture and bolt off, leaving my poor brother at my mom's mercy to read it before he could go.  Thank goodness my parents had the sense to make the "even amount of eggs each" rule, else I'm pretty sure my brother would have punched me.

I also remember whining and hating the holiday because it brought about pastel colours, something I despise.  If ever a color I can't stand, it is pastel pink.  When I am no fan of pink in the first place, making it sugary-sweet is the last thing that should happen.

Anyway.  Saturday my brother returns from his vacation on the East coast, and I am very excited.  Even though he'll only have been gone for 9 days, it was very different not having him home.  For Easter Sunday, as is the tradition since my move to the US, I will be going down to my grandparent's house and celebrating with the family.  It will be a good time, hosting a small egg hunt for a few of my cousins, seeing a few of my relatives, consuming yummy Filipino food.

What are your plans?

I'm fairly obsessed with penguins, Peanuts (the comic), and the TV show Friends. Parentheses may or may not be (over)used in this blog, and books will pretty much be the only thing I ever talk about because they are my One True Love.
