And not just because I'm having sleep issues...
When I was just a wee thing, my parents would drive us down to southern California to visit my grandmother for Easter. While there, we would usually go visit one of my father's pals. He was born in SoCal and, therefore, had people down there.
Ed and Irene lived not too far from my mum's family, so visiting wasn't that big of a deal. For me, the big deal was that on every spring visit, Irene would disappear into her kitchen and return with a chocolate bunny for me. As an only child on the younger end of the grandchildren, it was wonderful to get such a treat and to know that some white lady remembered me enough to get me a chocolate bunny just in case.
I was telling our Cindy about that the other day and she demanded that I get my own bunny. Okay, not really "demanded" but whatever. In years past, I have done so as my own weird little way of remembering Irene. This year, CVS did not have the hollow bunnies that I remember from childhood. What they had was tiny little "baby binks" whateverthefuck those are when they're at home. Since they're on sale for forty-nine cents today, I am not actually complaining. Later, I will eat the eyes. Then the ears followed by the bum. Then feel slightly ill and wonder why I ate that much hollow bunny in the first place.
Yeah. Every year, people...
The card totally made my day. Had me in tears at the post office, which is new and sort of impressive when you consider how much crying I've been doing for the last ten months or so. Isn't it pretty? Totally perfect as it is a pink glittery poppy. A darling friend, who may or may not want to be outted, sent it to me. I really do have the most amazing friends.
And who doesn't need spring green yarn?
At least, I didn't get the very cute little project bag with a sheepie on the front that was also spring green...

Typepad has been suffering from and dealing with repeated DDoS attacks since Friday-ish. Outages, limited loading, domain issues, blah, blah, blah. The kids at Typepad are working around the clock and everyone's info is safe, which is the important part. Things will get back to normal when they return to normal.
Now if you'll excuse me, I've got a bunny to eat.
