Spring Roll Run-Through in 30 Seconds, with Peeps: Reprise


It was a big hit. And since we have welcomed many new members to MOTUS’ little nest since last Easter, and since I have many wooden eggs to paint with non-toxic eco-friendly paint for Monday’s Spring Sphere Roll, I thought I’d take this opportunity to reprise it for your Holy Saturday viewing.


It’s not until next Monday, but we started preparations for the annual Easter Egg Roll (can I still call it that, or is a Spring Roll now?) today.

We had a little run-through with a bunch of the the staff’s kids. You remember how Lady M likes to greet little kids when they come to visit us at the Big White don’t you? Well, it looks like we’re going to have to work on her initial welcome before the actual Spring Roll. Lady M doesn’t want to scare the little children. Again.

Let’s just say the run through could have gone smoother. First of all, as you know, Lady M is just coming off her latest Botox treatment, and I guess some of the children didn’t recognize her. I don’t think it had anything to do with the boob belt. But you know how it is with kids - once one of them gets all hyper on you, the hysteria just spreads like chicken pox. The actual video was a little too ugly to use, in fact it’s been confiscated by the Secret Service. So I’ve staged a little re-enactment with Peeps to show you the sequence of events:

Warning: the kids are really LOUD. May need to turn volume down if you’re at work. Or if you have sensitive ears.

I’m sure we’ll have everything ironed out by Monday. Although I’m still not sure the wooden eggs in place of candy eggs are going to go over very well.
