The little bit of good news I have for you today is that we are only 16 days away from spring and 27 days away from Easter*, which means Peep eating season is upon us! Even better tidings for Minecraft die-hards: Marshmallow Creeps. Quad packs of sugar, corn syrup, gelatin, preservatives, green dye, and carnauba wax all spun into the likeness of Minecraft's notorious bearers of hostility and explosives. However, when these Creepers blow up they incite happiness and hyperactivity (particularly when the blowing up occurs in the microwave) instead of hard-assembled block destruction.
The little bit of bad news I have for you is...well, you'll probably figure it out.
*Now I don't know what dictates this sort of thing--something about the New Orleans Mardi Gras celebration, right?--but I like how even though Easter is meant to honor the day the Lord is risen, that day changes every year. Sometimes he is risen end of March, sometimes he is risen middle of April...it's complete arbitrariness. As if someone...such as the Easter Bunny...looks at his calendar and just picks a day he figures he'll be available for basket delivery. Well, Easter Bunny, there's never much going on in August. And the weather is way more dependable for egg hunting by then. How about having Jesus risen in August next year?
