Happy Good Friday! Forgive me for another rambling open post, as this week has been pretty packed with no end in sight.
Many of us congratulated Zurvan on his successful attempt at the CISSP exam on last week’s DJ thread, but I wanted to do another shoutout to him. It is one of the more difficult things that I did professionally and it has rewarded me many times over. It provides incentive to keep my skills strong with pretty serious continuing education requirements for an IT cert. So, kudos, Zurvan!
Easter is a major religious holiday and is very important to me as such, but the celebration itself never reaches some of the other holidays. Spring is here, which is always good. My Mom is coming in town tomorrow (good) and we will have a nice brunch with Dave and my combined families (good) and we will all get the little kids gifts (fun). That about hits the highlights. I haven’t colored eggs (my son would never eat them) in years and my son isn’t particularly into dark chocolate.
We are going to see Ready Player One tonight (Thursday). My son’s literature class has spent a month reading and writing on the novel and he gets some extra credit for going to the movie and doing an assignment comparing and contrasting the movie and book. We would have gone anyway, but he needs the credit. This is the first book he has thoroughly enjoyed reading and can see the movie after he read the book. It will be interesting to get his reaction. I should get his Lit teacher a bottle of wine for how well he has done with him this year.
Let’s celebrate, shall we? Easter is about Jesus, new life, redemption, bunnies and chicks, and family gatherings.
- Bunnies, chicks, eggs, etc. Easter trappings are a mish mash of some kind of weird fertility rite. Does anyone else but me think that Easter Bunnies are creepy? Play songs of bunnies and chicks. And eggs? Anybody?
- Jesus, crosses, crucifixion. Get out your gospel music this week!
- Raising the Dead – Not just for Halloween, right?
Here is your playlist:
