    LOL. I'm the youngest sibling. Every major milestone my sister would call me up to whine because she wasn't old enough to have a younger sister at whatever age I had reached.

    I can take or leave Cadbury Crème Eggs but a big for me for the Peeps. Too sweet and too sticky for my taste. A double to black licorice jelly beans! I still make my 20 something year old sons an Easter basket. Well, it's really a scaled down version of an Easter basket. A small paper gift bag filled with Reese's eggs, Jelly Belly jelly beans, a few Cadbury eggs and a whopper of a Hershey's Reeses peanut butter and chocolate egg. No marshmallow peeps or chocolate marshmallow bunnies, either, b/c vegetarians can't eat marshmallows. My eldest lives with his gf in the city, so I made her a goodie bag, too. My youngest said he was getting too old for Easter candy, but pshaw, one is never too old for candy. Especially chocolate.

    My 18 and 20 year old sons basically got a stack of their favorite treats tied with curly ribbon!

    Kids remain kids, no matter how old they get, especially when it's their moms who are giving them back their kid memories!

    Fortunately, sometimes when I call the night before, I'm told I'm not needed so I don't have to take off from work to go to the courthouse.

    I wouldn't mind actually serving. I think it would be interesting. Even if the case itself is pretty dull, just being part of the process would be a new experience.
    I'd love to serve on a jury (when my schedule is at down-time and I can afford to serve). But when I've been able to report, I've been dismissed. Apparently, lawyers hate linguists.

    They don't like psychologists either. My husband has a PhD in psychology. Even though he's not a clinical psychologist, all he has to do is say he's a psychologist and he's out of there. Sometimes it works on salespeople too. My husband used to like to go to those sales pitch things where they give you free stuff for going (I hate going). A couple of times, when asked what his occupation was and he said psychologist, the salespeople just said, okay, gave us the gifts, and that was it. I think they figured he'd be able to see through their techniques.

    I'm not that fond of regular Cadbury Cream Eggs, but the Caramel ones are to die for!! I used to love Peeps, but they are too sugary for me now. My favorite Easter candy is chocolate covered marshmallow eggs. Yum!!

    I did try a bite of my granddaughters chocolate bunny this year and whoever it was earlier who said they use cheap chocolate in those is absolutely right. It didn't even taste like real chocolate... to me at least. The kids loved them.

    I have officially signed up myself and my 9-year-old daughter to do a color run this weekend. I hope it's as fun as it looks!
