I Passed Eighth Grade Math (in the blogosphere)

You Passed 8th Grade Math

Congratulations, you got 8/10 correct!

Now, I didn't even understand one of the questions in the quiz. It used a sort of carat symbol, the meaning of which was a mystery to me. Instead of just guessing, I left that one blank. So the other question that I got wrong? Who knows?

It's been a pretty long time since eighth grade.

what's in YOUR easter basket?

what's in YOUR easter basket?
Originally uploaded by MBK.

The orange "creepy peeps" are leftovers from Halloween. The eggs were done years ago by dipping the egg in progressively darker colors of dye, covering with wax the parts you wanted to remain the lighter colors. My friend Debby convinced some of us to try this with her. I never did it again, but I did enjoy it and treasure these three eggs that I designed and made. By the way, you never have to "blow out" the egg, the yolk and the white just stay inside the shell forever and are supposed to eventually dry up. These eggs still feel heavy, like there are egg innards inside.

Happy Easter, everyone!
