I can actually answer this one. No.

 

And my chickens already lay blue and green eggs, so ... meh.

 

Ooh, Araucana?

 

(One of the organic farms near here sells mixed color shell eggs, mostly white and brown, but for a while they had a small but noticeable percentage of pale turquoise green, I would call it.)

Yup. Not show-quality, but my girls lay some of the prettiest eggs. I get brown speckled eggs from the Marans.

Question, April 2: Would either of these have been good prank Questions for yesterday: “Do you agree with the Pope’s Decision to cancel Easter?” “Was the Easter Bunny justified in Excommunicating the Pope for banning April Fools Day?”

 

I would have gone with the latter, given the Pope's smiling nature, I can see him loving a good joke.  The irony would be wonderful.

Yes.  Peep stuffed animals that were as tall as my daughter.  I was horrified.

 I'd completely forgotten it was Easter until I tried to go do some shopping late Sunday afternoon and the entire world was closed.

 

 

What, exactly, has prompted the observance of Easter in the last few years?  It went from a holiday that was largely ignored by the secular world to one that shuts things down inconveniently like they're Chick Fil-A and crowds the roadways for sunrise services when you're trying to get home in the wee hours.  This was the one holiday I was super-excited to be done with when I stopped being Catholic 20-odd years ago, and here it is bothering me again. :lol:

This may have been the reason for both questions:

Currently no, just big ol' Kinder Surprise eggs.

I saw Bunnies created in the various pastel colors normally reserved to plastic Easter eggs. I don’t know if they were chocolate treats or plastic decor things. And I saw Rabbits covered in faux fur that would  normally adorn felines. Like ocelots, or maybe it was supposed to be Cheetah.

Bizarrely, no.  Even the lady in the shopping mall giving out Easter candy was dressed in the mall uniform instead of dressing up like an Easter Bunny.

Nope, wasn't fooled but man some companies had some absolutely epic April Fool's products.  Sadly I can't quite comment on some of them due to their more adult nature, but one company did a brick and fidget spinner this year as their April Fool's...

Nope, other than apparently forgetting that Easter was this past Sunday.

Nope. I can't recall seeing or making any colored Easter Eggs in a very long time.

      I was at the 2018 Adepticon in Schaumburg, Illinois last month helping out at the Reaper Paint & Take tables.
       
      I took pictures of the stupendous international Crystal Brush competition entries and other minis and terrain with an eye towards the interests of the people on this forum. Also some fun cosplay and miscellaneous interest.
       
      I can't guarantee my photographs are great. I was using two cameras with very different capabilities and strengths and I am not a professional photographer. Some of the pictures use a very harsh flash because it allowed for super sharp enlargements of detail, something I thought painters here would be interested in.
       
      I didn't know which entries would win the Crystal Brush competition, and as it turns out I missed the third-place winner. I have got pictures of the first and second place winners.
       
      So to begin with, here is this year's first place entry, "Apocalypse", a diorama by Michal Pisarski.
       
       
       
      And this is the second place winner, "The Name of the Wind", a diorama by Sergio Calvo. My pictures of this are not so good, I'm afraid.

      Looks like it has rolled back around to me.
       
      The roolz:
       
      The obligatory rules posting:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. If I fail to post a question, Inara will post a question of her own choice.
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 6AM and 8AM EST
      3.5 (Rule 3 may be the 2nd most broken rule.)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.
