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.

  1. 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?
  2. Jesus, crosses, crucifixion. Get out your gospel music this week!
  3. Raising the Dead – Not just for Halloween, right?

Here is your playlist:

And here are your dedications for the week:

Santino – Jesus is Just Alright

Grendel –  Spirit in the Sky

spootyjim – White Rabbit

WVR – Raise the Dead

  1. The ultimate in bunny songs, for WG

    Ah, you remembered my great love for all things Looney Toons!

    Im enjoying a stat holiday today, socialism has its benefits.

    I’m off today also. Working for a Catholic-centric company has its benefits as well.

    For you, Santino…

  3. Thanks for the shoutout, pfluffy.

    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.

    I am curious to know his reaction, and his thoughts on the book. I read the book, and thoroughly enjoyed it. But I am a child of the 80’s – there are literally hundreds of 80’s pop-culture references in the book, and I got a kick out of most of them. I’m curious to know how a young millennial thinks about it.

    My favorite #2

    My father actually wrote this one.
