Many moons ago. . . . .

I used to sing (with a Christian group) this song:
"I've got this joy joy joy joy down in my heart!
Down in my heart!
Down in my heart!"
It is quite joy producing to sing that over and over in a loud voice.

and now we are finally celebrating Ostara - the cycle of the season of planting crops and rejoicing for the coming food supplies. Small children used to be sent into the brush to find new eggs, the first food of the year, and we still brightly color them to celebrate new life.
Holidays are for joy and celebration, and this one, especially, calls for indulgence and gratitude for all our abundance.

--Jim Gaffigan:
on the unnatural size of cinna-buns:
"I can't tell if it's a pastry or a bean bag chair. Should I sit in it, or eat it?
... I could sit in it and eat it. Wow this is sticky with no pants on."
