A rant

Yes, I know that I have blogged today, but Erin will just have to suffer through because I need to put this out in the world.

Actually this is all Erin's fault because she told me that she had an Easter egg party at her house on Thursday evening for someone who had never dyed eggs before. (There's a lot that could be ranted about there, but I digress).

I decided that I would dye some eggs to use along with the pansy centerpiece for tomorrow's event. We all know how I love Easter. It rivals Christmas and that is certainly saying something since we all know what a fool I become at that time of the year.

Like Christmas, there are certain things that should never be changed about Easter. Just like you don't all of the sudden change Santa Clause to Santa Herman, you do not change the names of the colors in the Easter Egg dying kit. Is nothing sacred to you people (you meaning the people at Paas)? Blue is blue. Don't be changing it to "denim." "Teal" does not mean green. What are we going to do when the children of America go to school and tell the teacher that the Blue card she is holding up is "denim?" Are we changing Orange to "pumpkin?" Purple to "aubergine?" WHERE DOES IT END?

I say right here and right now. Join with me in my letter writing campaign to change the colors back to their real names. Here's the address:

c/o Signature Brands LLC
100 South Fourth Street, Suite 1010
St. Louis MO 63102

Teal indeed.

I'm with you, my sistah! I have enough trouble getting the "littles" to learn red, blue, yellow, green, orange, purple without confusing the issue!!! My letter is in the mail!

I knew that I could count on you to be as equally morally outraged as I!
