Daffodil Day

Daffodils. They were adopted by the Canadian Cancer Society in the 50s as a "symbol of hope in the fight against cancer". The flowers have been sold in a national fundraising campaign ever since.

This year they're doing things a little differently. Today, April 9th, marks the first official Daffodil Day. They've decided to launch this pilot campaign only in BC this year, but it's expected to launch nationally next year. The Canadian Cancer Society encourages people to show their support by donating and wearing a daffodil pin.

Remember the Canadian Cancer Society's TV commercial from the early 90s with the little girl singing the song Look What Daffodils Do? Well, I can't find a copy of the bloody thing online, but I did find the radio ad.

What do daffodils do?
They laugh the winter and spring right through
If they can turn rainy skies sunny, I can too
That's what daffodils do


Zombie Jesus at Cyanide & Happiness!!!

Cyanide and 
Happiness, a daily webcomic

Cyanide & Happiness @ Explosm.net

Finally! I was getting worried ol' ZJ wouldn't be making an appearance this year.

But...does this mean there won't be a Zombie Jesus comic next year? Is this the end of Zombie Jesus?


Happy belated ZJD!

(skipping through the living room, camera in hand)
I'm going to post the pictures of my Easter bunnies today! What fun!

(leaning against the wall, smoking a cigarette)
It's too late. Easter is over.

(pauses midway through room)
I know, I know. I've been pretty slack lately.

I'll say you have! When was the last time you actually looked at me?

(looks at floor and shuffles her feet, without a glance at Calender)
Ummm...what month is it again?

(rolls eyes)
Yeah, that's what I thought.

(starts to cry)
I'm sorry! I've just...had a lot of things on my mind! I'm so sorry!

(flicks cigarette casually on floor)

Calender spits on the floor. He stretches his hands out, cracks his knuckles, then begins walking towards Leah.
(Leah takes a couple steps backwards)
Wait. What are you doing? Don't...don't hit me again! I'll scream!

Camera pans away from characters. Blood splatters on wall. Screams are heard. Calender walks into view of camera, now covered in blood splatter. He lights up another cigarette.

Bitch had it coming.

Calender puffs on the cigarette, as he leans back against the wall.

Whoa. Where did that come from? When I sat down here, I simply intended to post pictures of my Easter bunnies (just like Skipping Leah said), but somehow ended up penning this weird little mini-script. Plus, my chicken almost burned because I was so blissed out while writing it. Plus-plus, I'll never look at a calender the same way again. Ignore a calender again? Maybe.

I have Southern Comfort mixed in 7UP now, so it's all good. Let's get this bunny started!

My Easter vingette is mixed in with my Alice in Wonderland vingette. The Cheshire Cat is hiding in the Gay Sticks.

Evil Porcelain Bunny Slipper wants your soul! Sooooouuulll!!!

Bemused Bunny Sitting on Cabbage wants your chocolate...to hide in his cabbage...for you...because he thinks you're cute.

Mario Bunny is quite comfy sitting in front of the Easter card I got from Rebecca. Doesn't the bunny on the card remind you of Dramatic Chipmunk?

The White Rabbit...

...is late again.

Zombie Bunny mistook this ducky as Meals on Wheels. It was an honest mistake. I think Kinder Surprise Bunny and Robot Bunny were egging him on (pun intended, as always).


The Royal London Wax Museum

Nick and myself did the tourist thing again, this time at the Royal London Wax Museum. I was pretty excited about it, right up until I actually stepped inside the main exhibit. I stopped dead in my tracks, doing a fantastic impression of a deer caught in headlights (by the way, I'm available for birthday, retirement and stag* parties). The British Monarchy was staring at me, and, well, it was kind of creepy. It was most definitely a "do not want" moment.

Then I got over it.

The photos I took are in this Picasa album, but here are my favorites.


See? There's something for everyone!

*Get it? Deer in the headlights? Stag parties? Nevermind...


better late then never?

I am so far behind on my posts. I've been getting into lots of mischief lately, which means I should have been writing lots of posts. There are bunches and bunches of post ideas flitting about in my brain, just begging to be let out. Begging! I'm also behind on uploading pictures. I've taken oh-so-many pictures!

Okies, I'm off to procrastinate again!
