No, not the holiday, the phrase, silly! I mean, Easter was only a bank holiday weekend. We’re having our Easter Holidays now, but how can they be Easter Holidays if they don’t involve Easter?
Some of my more secular, less traditional friends pointed out that there’s no reason we can’t celebrate Easter now, eggs and all, but it wouldn’t be the same, and I’ve already had Easter.
So, what to call this holiday? One girl at school (a somewhat, er, unusual year 12 girl) has taken to referring to it as Spring Break. Several teachers were using the phrase as well, but it just feels kind of weird, like some strange American, PC thing. “Spring Break”. “Spring Break”. I don’t know, it’s just not something that rolls off the tongue easily, probably because this holiday has always been the Easter Holidays, as long as I can remember. Some people at school were actually calling it Half Term, even though that’s something completely different!
So, anyway, it’s “Spring Break”, and I’m in a bit of a random mood, as you probably guessed.
It was rather a shock logging onto WordPress the other day and discovering that they’ve changed the dashboard screen (that’s the behind the scenes stuff that readers don’t see). The new design is probably easier to use, but it’s less easy on the eye, dominated by pastel oranges and blues. I also miss having a link to the forums on the dashboard. I expect I’ll get used to it.
Anyway, I haven’t seen GoodFellas yet. We were going to be watching it in class, but a certain teacher couldn’t be bothered to show up to teach us. Perhaps I’ll be able to borrow a copy from a friend, but otherwise I’ll have to wait until the holidays are over.
Oh and, almost forgot: DoctorWhoseriesfourstartsinlessthananhour!!!
*Sighs* I’m such a hopeless Doctor Who fanboy.
