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.)

 

I had an Araucana when I was growing up. I hand reared her, and she liked to be held when I got home from school.  She laid the prettiest light blue-green eggs.

Not bad, but I think I'd have given them a Passover. 

I am indifferent, though I have an academic sense that it's beneficial.   What I really want is to have shakers FOR my paint bottles. As in, some sort of goblins in a cage that will continua

it would not be a normal paint.   Glitter Medium!   Turning any colour into a glitter variant.

Question, April 4: Did you get fooled by the Easter Bunny or any other pranksters this year?

 

I'm not sure.  on Monday I saw a screen shot of the LA times - 

"unarmed black man arrested without being shot" 

- of course it happened.  that a newspaper reported it that way is in question. 

my wife asked - is that from yesterday? 

I am not sure if the paper actually printed it, or if it was done with photoshop,  (likely from an onion article) 

*google* turned up no results with this heading.

Nope. Honestly, with it falling on a Sunday, there was little chance for it as Mrs. Gargs and I pretty much stayed home all day and cleaned house.

Well, Mother Nature got me yesterday; the weekend was nice and warm and spring-like. Yesterday morning, I woke up to snow.

Nope, in fact no one has played a prank on me in quite some time.

 

However, many many years ago when I was but a wee clown. We were visiting my grandparents in Florida for Easter. On Easter morning Grandpa went out and shot at a rabbit that was in his garden. He then came back in and declared that he had shot the Easter Bunny. I don't really remember the incident myself, but I'm told my sister and I did not take the news well. Mom and Grandma were not happy with him.

      The rules: as they were last month (in addition to all regular forum rules) except where I sneakily changed them:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question. †
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day, a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... ††
      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 sometime before 1 AM Reaper time (US Central).
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to Talespinner or Morihalda… 
      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 can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.
      8. Pix always welcome.
       
       
      The first question will need to be posted after a brief (10 minute) pause to foil the merging of posts.
      The footnotes, because I can't resist doing †††footnotes:
       
      † I will aim for 0600 Reaper/Nottingham time.
      ††  If subs and backstops could wait until 11AM in Reaper/Denton's timezone to see if I remember.
      ††† …because I re-remembered how to do the dagger ( † ) symbol.
