Easter Dinner with the In-Laws, the Anti-Christ and A Better Tea Party

In about two minutes I am going to leave this soft, cushy computer chair and start cooking for the Southworth family Easter Dinner. Only my oldest son and his girlfriend will be present on my side of the family. I have had to get used to this as my family hugs the East Coast and I am living in the desert Southwest!

I am somewhat relieved though, because up until a week ago I had no idea that the anti-Christ and her devilish son lived so close to my Mom in Florida. I would have been worried had I known.

And I have a solution to the little pirate problem that exists over by Somalia. Let's (the collective civilized world) just not go in those waters for anything. Yes, change routes, stop visiting and cruising in the area. We should all refuse to use any ports within 1000 miles. It's not worth lives and losses of money.

Finally, would someone please explain to me the whole tea party idea. I know the purpose and I am all for supporting less taxes, but my question is: what are we all going to do at these tea parties? Fling tea bags around? Stomp and chant, "down with taxes"? I have a better idea. Why not have a big outdoor cocktail party, like they do before the Georgia-Florida football games and serve Long Island Iced Teas. That sounds more fun, doesn't it? I am not really the type to go marching around saying, "we will overcome" or whatever the chosen chant will be. So please, if you are planning this massive event in front of the Arizona State Capital building on Wednesday, April 15th, please let me know if you will have open bars for the special tea drinks. Otherwise, this empty nest woman will need to bring her cooler and pitcher with her tea libations.

Hope you had a nice Easter. That pirate situation is just plain weird. I can't wrap my head around the idea that it's 2009 and there are still pirates out there. I'm sure they don't say Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh but still.

Was the first time I boiled eggs and no one wanted to color them with me. I even made cut out cookies and the kids decorated a few, but other than that, we just all played Trivial Pursuit and ate ham.

What's in plastic egg cartons that ruins the easter egg coloring?
