Happy April Fool’s Day!


I love April Fool’s Day.

Did you see this morning’s post about the murals for the condo walls?? All in jest!!!! πŸ™‚

I thought I was funny…hopefully, you did, too! (And I hope I didn’t insult anyone’s decorating sense…all those wall murals would be over-the-top, if you ask me!)

I’m a big fan of April Fool’s jokes…not stupid or dangerous ones, just innovative and clever ones. Last year, this was my April 1stΒ  bloggie prank…I got a few people!

Did you play any jokes this morning? Or, did you hear of any good ones? Sometimes radio announcers can really pull the wool over our eyes – I’ve heard some good ones over the years.


Did you know that The Brother is an April Fool’s baby? ‘Tis true! It’s really rather ironic that today is his birthday. The Brother is a PhD and absolutely brilliant…but he also has a wonderful sense of humour, so maybe it IS fitting that today we celebrate his birth!

Happy Birthday, little brother! Remember, “you’re the boss of your day!”

    lol – I my. I didn’t see your posts until this evening. You wrote that so convincingly, you little minx. πŸ˜› That would’ve been a HUGE change for you although I’ll confess that I loved the first one. πŸ˜‰

    I had forgotten that Chris’ bday was April 1st until just now – Happy Birthday, Chris! Hope it was an amazing day for you!

      sometimes it’s BETTER reading the joke after the fact, when you know it’s a joke! i found some online this eve that were truly very funny! hope you had a good day yourself!

    I actually did see your post earlier and thought the hockney as mural was a bit much and that I would hold off on responding…so you got me!!!!!
    Not actually a joke player on April Fool’s…I saw Caitlin’s this morning and laughed my head off though…and I just showed mr. strivingcynic the poster and told him about you saying it would be a mural (he grimaced) and then read this post to him. He laughed. Good one.

      hahaha! oh, zo, you made my day! πŸ™‚ i love how you just didn’t comment this morning…silence is the best response in this instance, eh?! i saw caitlin’s post, too, but guessed it was an AF joke after a couple paragraphs…but it was a good one! angela at oh she glows got nicely into the spirit. have a great weekend!

    Happy Birthday to your brother!

    I like the idea of the murals, but yes, 3 different ones in your house may be a bit too much!

    • 1970kikiproject  On April 1, 2011 at 4:58 pm

      thanks, holly! at least The Brother’s birthday is a super easy date to remember! i do have to admit i think the sunset mural in the “jersey shore” house is perfect for them/that setting!!

  • Johanna B  On April 1, 2011 at 3:34 pm

    Actually, the beach and sunset mural would be kind of cool in the living room.

    • 1970kikiproject  On April 1, 2011 at 3:41 pm

      I agree that the sunset one could be very effective in the right setting…but three murals on the walls would just not be my style! πŸ™‚
