Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

Saturday 9: This Is the Way the Bunny Hops
(From the archives)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) Why do you suppose there are so many songs about Santa Claus, yet very few about the Easter Bunny?
Santa has a better publicist.

2) This song was written by The Kiboomers, two early education teachers who are passionate about the power of music to help kids learn. Tell us about a teacher who had an impact on your life.
I've written about her before.  That would be Sister Anne, who was my typing teacher in my junior year in high school.  We became great friends and I felt like she was my "other mother."  She was transferred at the end of my year of typing, but we remained friends until she died and Jeri (Jerilyn Anne) is named for her. After she retired to the convent retirement home in Indiana, I visited her one weekend and learned she had become the convent brew master and we sat and visited while drinking the beer she had made.

3) Legend has it that the Easter Bunny was introduced to America in the 1700s by German immigrants. These children waited for a magic creature who left colored eggs. Today's kids dye Easter eggs themselves. When did you most recently color eggs?
I don't think I have colored eggs since the kids got too old to have colored eggs, so it would be a couple of decades.

4) The Easter Bunny is usually shown carrying a wicker basket filled with eggs, toys and candy. Is there any wicker in the room you're in right now?
Yes.  There is a wicker basket holding junk that I haven't looked  through in years.

5) While marshmallow Peeps are manufactured all year around, they are most popular at Easter. Do you prefer the chicks or the bunnies?
Neither.  I don't like Peeps.

6) A little time in the microwave can do ugly things to a Peep. Have you ever nuked a Peep?
No...but given how I feel about Peeps, perhaps nuking one would make me feel good!

7) Would you prefer a hollow or a solid chocolate bunny?
Oh definitely solid...much more chocolate!

8) A traditional American Easter dinner usually includes glazed ham or roast lamb. Which would you rather have as your main course?
We always had either roast lamb or ham, alternating.  My favorite was lamb, but Marta doesn't like either, so Ned is cooking a roast beef.

9) Easter is considered the season of rebirth. What makes you feel refreshed or rejuvenated?
These days it's the sleep I'm getting under my wonderful weighted quilt.  I'm actually sleeping normal hours most nights and feel so good when I wake up, after so many years of insomnia.  Still have a bit of insomnia, but oh so much less.
