    Re: How do you celebrate Easter?

    When was Easter?

    How did I celebrate it? I woke up remained awake during all of the day light hours, I did stuff. nothing extraordinary. I also stayed up for several non daylight hours, I watched TURN and Game of Thrones, I went to bed.

    As far as the side conversation of store closings, for a long while I had chickfil-a syndrome (I lived really close to one). It seemed the only time I ever was of a mind to go have a sandwich from them it was a freaking Sunday and they were closed.

    78 degrees? That's pretty rare. I like mine about 140 degrees.

    He probably was using Celsius, which puts them at about 172 F - way too done for my taste

    Re: How do you celebrate Easter?

    Woke up with a huge hangover from Saturday night, realized church service started in 10 minutes, texted my dad to tell him I wasn't going to make it, got in to an argument with my parents, went over for easter lunch, played with my nephew, went for a swim, went home, had amazing sex with the girl I'm about to make my girlfriend.

    All in all, just another day in the life of Peter Grimm.

    Maybe they meant Kosovo....

    Re: How do you celebrate Easter?

    Slept in, hung out with the family. Pre-cooked dinner since my daughter had to work all day yesterday. At around 4, we went to the movies, and since my daughter works at the theater, by the time our movie was over at 6, she was off. Came home, reheated the ham, fixed the rest of dinner and ate pretty late - around 8. But it was worth it to be able to eat with the family.

    Sad day, though - first year my daughters didn't get Easter baskets. They are 14 and 16, so they don't get them like from the "Easter Bunny" or anything, but I usually loaded them up with goodies and a magazine, maybe a CD or an iTunes gift card or something. I just made the decision that they were too old for Easter Baskets, and I got them a large chocolate bunny and a stuffed animal. Made me sad, though.

    Re: How do you celebrate Easter?

    I guess I am traditionalist:

    Easter egg hunts at two different protestant churches on Saturday. Then drank three good dark beers (at a brewery, not at the evangelical churches) as alcohol was one of my "give ups" for lent. Went to Mass on Easter Sunday, then did family stuff. Though I dont like using people's labor on Easter, I went to eat with my inlaws at a restaraunt.

    Oh yeah, pretty sure made a few posts here.
