everyone and a blessed Passover and Easter to you all!
This issue is a few
than I intended but I had an idea that
I just didn't want to let pass by. I'm sure many of you, like
myself, have fun memories of searching for eggs the Easter bunny had
hidden around your yard and/or home. Well, the Easter bunny has
come to JABB! Or rather I have taken on the role myself. I
have hidden 18 Easter eggs around the JABB site (meaning any site with
onthisside.net in its url) for our first-ever
Easter Egg Hunt. Please read the rules below if you plan to
participate. Else just skip on down to the top ten.
Egg Hunt Rules
the eggs I have hidden look something like this:
finds the most eggs and
sends me the urls of the JABB pages they found them on no later than
Thursday April 13th at 8 PM Central is eligible for a reward. If
more than one person finds the same amount of eggs, I will use
JABB/JD/TBAA trivia quizzes as tie-breakers until we have a single
winner. Once the winner is selected they will be able to pick a
prize(s) totalling no more than $25 (including shipping and handling
charges) from either JABB's Store
or our CafePress.com store.
If you have any questions (except for "Where are the eggs? :-) please contact me.
Ten Signs Spring Has Come to Dyeland
Monica has taken to ordering mocha fraps instead of mocha
lattes because of the increased temperature.
9. Andrew keeps
phone calls in the middle of the night
from Dyelanders claiming to be afraid of spring's thunderstorms.
8. Inspired by
weather, Adam takes to singing songs
from the tropically-set "South Pacific" instead of "Fiddler on the
Roof." Unfortunately he later learns this is a big mistake when
he hits "Younger than Springtime" and sings the lyrics "Angel and
lover, heaven and earth, Am I with you!"
7. Not to be outdone,
several Dyelanders attempt to sing the song
"The Lusty Month of May" from "Camelot." They cast particularly
pointed, lovelorn looks at Andrew when they come to the line: "Those
dreary vows that everyone takes, everyone breaks. Everyone makes
divine mistakes. The lusty
month of May!"
6. Adam and
Andrew give their annual lecture to the
and college students: "Spring Break: Keep Safe, Keep Dressed."
5. Adam's turkeys, Ted and
Tom, start strutting around and
puffing up their feathers... Umm... I think someone should look
into obtaining a Tina and a Trish possibly.
4. Andrew sighs with
relief. Those Andrewesque snowmen that
dotted the Dyeland winterscape were really starting to creep him out.
3. This is the perfect time
to plant those flower arrangements
that spell out "I Love Andrew" and the like when viewed from the
sky. Or you can mow your castle's/cottage's/house's lawn to spell
out these messages. Then claim aliens did it. Because
Androoling is not just for earthlings!
2. Two words:
short sleeves. Yes, I know many of
the leather jacket and the flannel shirts but... Andrew has nice
arms... And according the Bill of Rights
we are constitutionally guaranteed the right to see his bare arms.
1. Not only do spring storms
bring about desperate, late-night
phone calls, they also bring out clogged gutters. Which means
someone needs to clean the gutters. And I think Andrew and his
tool belt will be able to handle that task quite nicely. And thus
gutter-unclogging becomes a spectator sport. ::Winks to my friends at
the JABB YahooGroup!::
