So after much pacing up and down the living room, and procrastinating with myself, I came up with two blinding ideas to make the day stand out:
1. Blinding idea number one; Publish a poignant and moving photograph that epitomises Easter.
Pic.No.1. Poignant and moving - job done
2. Blinding idea number two; Instead of eating a normal meal, have a 'retro-lunch' - that will be far more memorable.
This idea took a bit of planning. I had to reminisce about the olden days, and then choose food that was suitably 'retro' in the hope that they sold it at the local supermarket. But I think you will agree ..... I did well. Bring on retro-lunch:
Pic.No.2. Starter - Monster Munch (it has to be Pickled Onion flavour to be properly retro)
Pic.No.3. Main Course - Pot Noodle (I bucked the trend a little because I chose a 'Bombay Bad Boy' which never existed in the old days because it contains 'spice', God forbid)
Pic.No.4. Dessert - An *Easter egg
So, after an invigorating and unusual retro-lunch, I found myself full of energy and raring to do 'anything'.
Blimey, that's a bit lively.
Suspicious of my sudden 'surge', I took a quick look at the ingredients found that they constitute 99% E-numbers. Woah, that is strong stuff. It's a good job that I only partake when Izzy isn't here, or she would be bouncing off the walls for weeks.
