i thought to myself, how lovely would it be to start the week with a 'little quiz',
dusting down our little cogs and taking our minds off the knowledge that
yes indeed a lovely large pile of chocolate can disappear that quickly
yes indeed we can focus upon something else and not the fact our buttons are a little 'samuel whiskers' today...
1: what did the easter bunny say as he handed Tif a packet of DARK chocolate mini eggs on easter sunday morning?
a) "i know just how much you love DARK chocolate Tif and i hopped out of my way to find these for you"
b) "i remember you saying Tif, just how much you really wanted a packet of DARK chocolate mini eggs for easter and nothing else would do"
c) "i know you don't eat DARK chocolate, infact you actually have never liked DARK chocolate, but i thought it might be nice to have a change, don't you agree Tif?"
2: when Tif arrived back at Mossy Shed after a five day excursion across the border, did she...
a) immediately unpack her clans bags, sort laundry and vacuum
b) do all of 'a' and also cook a fabulous meal for the hungry hordes
c) toss the bags on the floor, mutter to her clan there were dubious leftovers in the fridge. then set about being reacquainted with Miss Ethel, fashioning a 'happy egg' tree, not actually for her children but for some forsaken little deer that had come her way.
3: how many attempts did it take before Tif had edible easter nests on easter morning?
a) just one attempt, huge success, her clan gathered around to marvel at what lay before them on the kitchen island, exclaiming Nigella would indeed be most envious of their 'nesty perfection'.
b) five attempts, resulting in Tif weeping into her pocket full of kleenex which are always conveniently in her apron pocket and exclaiming "never again"
c) two attempts, the first resulting in a 'brick like' lump that could cause quite the injury if thrown with force, the second resulting in edible but not 'perfectly perfect' looking easter nests. Tif knew Nigella would not look upon her easter nests with a glance of envy, but by this time Tif really didn't give a damn
4: does the easter bunny move in mysterious ways for Tif?
a) no he does not, he hops around like every other bunny
b) no he does not, he messes up just like every other bunny, bringing DARK chocolate to a MILK chocolate loving friend
c) yes he does, he may appear to mess up but this is all part of his 'bigger bunny plan'...
for the easter bunny knew on easter sunday Tif would happen to glance at craigslist whilst praying the 'cooking ham' in the oven was supposed to smell like that. upon perusal of the vintage chair section the easter bunny knew Tif would come across a chair that got her pulse a racing, at a 'bobby bargain' price. the easter bunny knew Tif would relay this terribly thrilling find to the easter bunny who was still hopping around the yard at 4:30pm, this time not with a basket but with a power washer, giving Gladys a well deserved 'scrub'.
the easter bunny knew he would sigh, as he owed Tif for the terrible 'faux pas' of DARK chocolate and several hours later, the little 'bobby bargain' chair would be living at Mossy Shed. an edible ham meal would be on the table and Tif would be most happy indeed. yes all part of the easter bunny's 'bigger moving in mysterious ways' plan.
5) how many differences can you spot between the two pictures below?
("ooooh Tif! we do love a 'spot the difference' question"
"me too! dearest readers")
a) there are no differences Tif, it all looks the same to me
b) quite a few differences i am thinking around six
c) i can't possibly concerntrate on counting the differences when i have fainted from the shock of orla's goodness being removed from your walls Tif
and that is it...
if you answered mainly c's then you are most deserving of a gold sticky star,
that once again i give to you
once again you are most welcome to stick it where you wish.
if you did not answer mainly c's
do not fret,
let us blame it upon the chocolate of easter sunday
and you too may have a gold sticky star to cheer your day.
for quite honestly anyone that has bothered to stop by and read all of the above when they could instead be spending quality time with their chocolate is most deserving of a 'gold sticky' star in my books...
she is hoping you had a 'hippity hoppity' easter and that indeed the easter bunny moved in mysterious ways for you too ~ Tif
