Saturday 9

(Link in meme-roll)
Here Comes Peter Cottontail (1950)


1) Which do you prefer: colored hard-boiled eggs, chocolate marshmallow eggs, or plastic eggs with coins inside?
I prefer eating the marshmallow eggs. ;-)
2) What's your favorite color of Peeps (yellow, purple, or pink)?
Oddly--since I love sugar--I find Peeps disgusting in every way (except for these).
3) All this talk of sweets is making Sam hungry. What's for lunch?
I just had a bagel with Swiss and provolone cheese. Had jelly beans for breakfast.
4) This song was introduced by country singer Gene Autry and it's still a favorite. Please share some of the lyrics. (And you're on your own; Sam didn't include a link to the song this week.)
"Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hopping down the bunny trail,
Hippety-hopping,
Easter's on its way..."
That's from memory, so I've no clue how accurate it is.
5) Gene Autry was so popular that a town in Oklahoma named itself for him. Have you ever been to Oklahoma?
I have. Well, I've driven through the eastern part of it. Twice.
6) In addition to singing, Mr. Autry made 93 cowboy movies. What's the last movie you saw?
Uh...hmmmm. The Hunger Games (the first one), maybe, on TV? Several months ago?
7) He and his horse Champion also had a TV show. Can you name another famous horse?
Trigger, of course.
8) Gene Autry also recorded "Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer," and it was, of course, wildly popular, too. Who is your favorite recording artist?
Melissa Etheridge, I guess. I like her music, and really respect the way she's tried to be famous without being idiotic.
9) Back to the holiday celebration at hand -- Easter is considered the season of rebirth. What leaves you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated?
WARM WEATHER after a perfectly awful winter this year. Also, naps.

That's a good point about Melissa Etheridge. In addition to her music, there's much about her life I admire. She's been an interesting voice in the debate about breast cancer and its treatment.

Peeps are kind of disgusting. You have a point.
