April Fooz 2004
Well, here it is, another April Fooz day - and here I am a Fool, workin on another stupid Easter Calendar... Why am I doing this, I ask myself - I dont believe in Easter - Heck, I dont even believe in Eggs!!
And what do Eggs have to do with Easter anyway? Didja ever wonder bout that..? Hey, its a Pagan Ritual - how did that get in there..?!?
For whatever its worth - this pix, or the original sketch, dates back to 2002 - the year that I didnt do an Easter Calendar... It seems, that year, Easter snuck in right at the end of March, and I didnt realize it, till too late. I had already set this sketch aside to do the Easter Temple instead - and that in turn was set aside while I hashed together a quick replacement calendar for April... Then the following year, 2003 we finished the Dendera Easter Temple and now I thought might as well use this rejected pix for this year... The moral of this being, Never throw anything away - for You can possibly foist it off on someone, some other time...
Myself, I didnt boil and paint any eggs this year - not that I ever do... Though I did take some of that Duct Tape - Remember that Duct Tape that we were all supposed to buy to protect us from Terrorists? Well I took some rolls of that Duct Tape and wound up the strips into some nice silvery looking Duct Tape Eggs... They look pretty good, and I figure if some terrorist chances by, maybe I can hurl one at em...
But gettin back to April Fooz, guess the jokes on me - I had to drive in today (which was supposed to be a day off for myself) to listen to a supervisor rant and rave and foam at the mouth over graffiti in the restrooms, an stuff on the floor, narrow fire escapes, missing keys and innumerable other things that none of us had any control over and that had nothing what so ever to do with what the meeting was supposed to be about..! This went on for over two an a half hours - I thought my brain might melt! My life may have been flashing in front of my eyes, except my consciousness was too numb to notice..! If you could have heard these lunatic ravings, they would have fit right into a Dilbert cartoon! She kept Drivelling on as people got up and left - three quarters of the room had cleared and still she ranted on! I wondered, could I fake an epileptic fit - would they call the paramedics and get me out of there..?? I gnawed through my pencil - prayed for someone to pull the fire alarm - I Prayed for someone else to fake an epileptic fit, so that I could escape during the confusion... And finally I just struggled to my feet and I left - I escaped! And She was still driveling on - she may still be - I dont know...
Yes, my friends, I have seen Hell - I know that it exists!!
And what does that have to do with Easter..? I Dunno - Probably nothing... I just wanted to get it off my brain - and I hope that you folks had a better day than that... JQ
