Egg Wars!

....but before that, 80's picture(s) of the day numba 7!he he....I actually think my shorts are kinda cool..colorful dinosaurs? And this is one of the rare times that I actually look way bigger than my lil sis...she's like 18 months younger than me, but when we're older we look pretty much the sameish size. =) Anyways, this is at my grandma and grandpa's house...I was pulling my sister around in this toy all day, and finally I was like..."Dude, you pull me around.." (I actually can't remember, but I'm sure this is how it went...) lol...and she's too little, so obviously that didn't work too well. he he...

And now, Egg wars! Today is Eastern Orthodox Easter, the Easter hubby celebrates...so last night we dyed eggs and this morning had some fun with em! It's a tradition, goes like this:

Decorate some hard-boiled eggs:
Choose your contender....(you wanna make sure your egg is strong and doesn't have any cracks in it...and/or just plain looks cool). Here's my pride and joy:And Z's fave little guy:And then, one of you holds the egg in a fist, top rounded edge up, and the other person hits the top of it with the top edge of their egg...and vice versa for the bottom of the eggs. Insert random action shot here:And whoever's egg cracks loses! (Yes, it was me...my pretty egg had a crack in it already, though..he he...and then we had a re-match and we came out even, so it's a tie! lol..)And then, I don't do this part of the game...lol...but Z peels the eggs (which have been sitting on the counter all night and are have a lil dye seeped into their middles) and eats em for breakfast...eeeew....my stomach is just not strong enough for day-old had-boiled eggs, man..but he loved em...and I loved my cheerios. =) And that was our morning! So happy other-Easter!

Today I'm working, I had a chance to scrap with my Scrapmagie kit yesterday, I hadn't scrapped forever!! But today I have to draw some background concepts and stay on top of my work work...we watched "We Own the Night" last night: pretty cool but sad movie. I'm excited to finally see "27 Dresses" when it comes out on Tuesday...I'm mad feeling some back pain right now cuz we went out with some animators for a grad on Friday night and I fell into bed like a brick in an odd position and must've not moved all night, so I'm all stiff...hah...oh, what a few cocktails will do...=) It's been a fun weekend, though! Off to drink more coffee and get back at it! Happy day!

There's something about the way that you tell stories that just makes me crack up. Even if its not that funny. That visual of you falling like a brick and talking about cocktails... I had that Saturday morning so I did a little exercise and stretching and it does wonders!

Love the egg contest. Never heard of that version. Happy other Easter!

Very cool! That is how we do our eggs after the hunt Easter (even though we are not orthodox). Love the pics!

When my brother-in-law emailed me a 'Happy Easter!' message last week I was SO confused, until my husband informed me it was E.O.Easter. I guess that's a bit of his culture I forgot to research before marrying a Romanian...woops. I just found your blog through the SrapMojo site and was ecstatic to read you're receiving a similar Eastern European education via your husband. ;)
