On my food blog, I’ve been to the market and done a lot of baking. I also made mole sauce, and then didn’t know what to do with it. My Easter Egg Inspirations Challenge was basically empty all month until the 30th, when all of a sudden people started doing amazing things, prompting me to guiltily create two recipes – one for quail eggs made of egg-yolk candy and white chocolate and another for a cross between macarons and macaroons, to use up all the egg whites.
On my music blog, I wrote about Lizst’s Die Loreley, with bonus portraits of the young and gorgeous Lizst, and I found a silly 6-minute version of Les Miserables. Then I went into Easter mode (I sang in five services this weekend), with Walton’s Litany on Palm Sunday, Ubi Caritas on Maundy Thursday and He Was Despised on Good Friday. And I still haven’t done an Easter post, though it’s after midnight on Easter Monday now…
That’s it for me. I really do need to be more organised about sending these around, don’t I? That’s a bit epic.

In response to Arizona considering making it a criminal act to enter a public restroom (or various other places) where the sign on the door doesn’t match the sex listed on our birth certificate, I said that, if it became a law, following the law exactly might be an effective protest strategy, with my suggested place for doing so being wherever Arizona legislators use public restrooms.
I put forward my standard biblical defense for marriage equality which also serves as a Biblical refutation of homophobia and transphobia (New Testament so it should theoretically be seen by Christians to override the Old Testament stuff on the subject.)
And I pointed out that not everyone has the same religion in response to some people talking about “our lord” on a non-religious presumably diverse area of the internet. Since that seemed kind of sparse I added an excerpt of David Sedaris talking about Easter and faith in French class.
