Happy Easter *EDIT* NO CHOCOLATE RABBITS WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS POST

My parents and sister are on their way to Rome today, for Easter and a conference. Not envious. Not in the slightest.

*sigh*

I remember seeing the biggest Easter eggs known to humanity in shop windows in Rome just before Easter, I was seven years old, so the giant eggs were as impressive to me as the Roman ruins and marble cathedrals. The price tags were incredible too, since Italian Lire are very small, all the prices were in the hundreds of thousands, they weren't actually expensive, but all the zeros made them look it. Maybe I will swing by Cost Plus and get some pannacotta and bacci so I can pretend I'm in Rome too. I'll skip the scary seafood pizza, complete with squid, my sister was a great fan, but I was traumatized by taking a bite of folded over pizza and having a rubbery tentacle FLOP out at me. Of course I immediately shrieked and flung the offending slice from my person. Poor Evie, deprived of her tentacle pizza.

Oh well. Happy Easter Week.

Rome would be a great honeymoon trip, we still haven't taken ours, we didn't have the vacation time/money/energy to plan one to follow right after the wedding, so we've just agreed that the first post-wedding trip out of the US will be the honeymoon. We had a pre-honeymoon of 2 weeks in the UK the Autumn before we got hitched!
