Happy Easter! It's almost done, but, ya know what? I'm gonna extend the festivities into Monday because I feel like it, and I can. My ancestors started this holiday by being accused of killing Christ, so if I want to extend it one more day, I can. I like Easter because it lets all the Jews off the hook. Several thousand years later the Christian religion is still thriving. Jesus was resurrected, so it turned out good. We can all look back at that crucifixion and laugh now. What was everybody getting so worked up about?
I enjoyed a nice round of Easter golf with my specially painted Easter Balls. Have a look.
If you'd like one, take a walk in the woods at Eagle Watch in Towne Lake when you get a chance. They're all there.
That camera phone takes a whale of a flattering shot. If it weren't for this sudden global warming skein we've been having here in the south, I'd look more golfy, I assure you.
I enjoyed watching the Masters this year mainly because no one looked happy most of the time. It made the pros look more like me. I particularly enjoyed watching Tiger break his 5 iron against a tree, something that I enjoy doing and do well myself. I'm trying to raise my game a bit and I'm working on uprooting a bush with my driver. It's not as easy as it sounds, given the complex root system.
Another update on finding Kosher for Passover Coke: In response to my postings of last week, I received calls and messages from several mid-level Coke and Publix people who had gone to the trouble of obtaining the precious beverage.
Here I am, enjoying a 2-liter bottle of it at my home this evening.
As I suspected, it has the crisper, bubblier flavor of yesteryear, instead of the flatter, vegetable noted flavors of today's HFCS Coke. But boy am I cramping from 2 liters of gas-filled sugar water. Haven't done that since I was 23.
If Coke was smart they would bring back Coke with sugar as a niche brand since demand is so high. They could call it Nu Nu Coke, for the hip and semi-literate text messaging crowd, and do commercials with John Sununu. Or Coke 3, Coke Shoulda, Ye Olde Coke, Coke Before It Got Screwed Up, Coke This Is The Flavor of the Government Not Subsidizing Domestic Sugar Growers.
Enough about soda already. The vernal holidays of rebirth and redemption have passed and it's time to get on with the new year already and get down to business. In case you are interested in listening to radio on the internet at night, catch the stream all next week (4/16-4/20, dude), Monday-Friday from 9pm-midmight, as the House of Wachs returns to NY and 92.3 FREE FM. Watch your mouth, Imus! I think I'm being groomed.
