Hope everyone has a great time today. Because of an outbreak of flu in my sis-in-law's family and a morbid fear of contagion from the husband's parents, we've decided to skip celebrating Easter this year. Instead we'll be spending some time with friends in the country for Easterette (the day after Easter) — which is still a holiday... probably based on the Italian tradition to stuff oneself so much with food and drink that one requires a whole day-after to recover from one's excesses.

After catching up on my sleeping yesterday, my right tonsil has returned to its normal size. Like any day laborer, it goes on strike when it works overtime. It particularly favors acting up during festivities — to provoke the worst bother possible. Nasty bit of goods.

A couple of Easter quizzes:

What does your
Chocolate Easter Bunny Eating Habits
say about you?

My Easter Bunny Personality

You are friendly, optimistic, and kind hearted.
You don't have a harsh word for anyone. [You reserve that for your body parts.]

You cheerfully live your life with little complaining or suffering.
You are creative and artistic. You live in your own inner world.

You live your life freely, without guilt or restrictions.
And you would never feel bad about eating too much chocolate!

And where there's the Easter Bunny, there's also Liquor Sunday!!

I am Whiskey
You're a tough drinker, and you take it like a man.
That means no girly drinks for you - even if you are a girl.
You prefer a cold, hard drink at the end of the day.
Every day, in fact. And make that a few.

Hey Arlene, an artistic bunny who is partial to whiskey?? Nice mix! : )
Hope Easter Monday went well - they don't celebrate it here, can't understand why as the Spanish sure love their indulgences too. ; )

And what about the tremendous variety of GRAPPAS we have in Italy, in particular in Veneto and Friuli?
We can burn ourselves to Heaven with them.
Happy Post-Easter,
