Hot Cross Bun

First off, what a day. I have another headache. Last night I dropped off my wireless connection and couldn't get back on it until just now, so I was piggybacking on my landlord's (weak signal) with a combination of attaching my laptop to the ethernet cable. And I couldn't send emails from my server account because it didn't recognise the new IP address.

And my Performancing Firefox won't work since I switched to the new Blogger because I can't figure out how to change my name and password.

Then I tried calling the specialists in some departments at a certain auction house to ask why, exactly, I can't get an interview despite having an MPhil in art history. I was referred to a few but they were all out of the office.

Then I tried to call Internal Revenue but their lines are all busy.

Maybe I could go to the Post Office. I have some things to do there...
And I pulled out my training pack so I can practise my voice overs again. I wish I hadn't done my demos last year. I sound a lot happier now.

This is what I really wanted to blog about today:

Seen on Cute Overload:



Or here: Brave Bunny

There were over 200 comments - most people on the side of "Go bunny go!"
Others, whom one commenter said shouldn't be exposed to the real world, decried it as cruelty and not cute at all.
In turn, people hailed it as a great thing to see the tables turned for once.

One commenter came up with this priceless dialogue:

Bunny: Oh, what's this?
Snake: RAH, I bite you!
Bunny: No! *hops away* Comes back and bites tail
Snake: Ha, I really showed that-- OW! Hey!
Bunny: Get out of here! I bite YOU!
Snake: Augh, leave me alone! *climbs up tree*


And so I say, "Go bunny go!"

Art following life in the classic killer rabbit scene from Monty Python:



Or here: Killer Rabbit

"You tit! I soiled my armour I was so scared!"
"Manky Scots git! What's he do, nibble yer bum???"

ML - cute bunny, yes, but having been a bunny owner myself I can tell you they are quite feisty once you get 'em going :)

Prerona - yes, better, thanks! Being down at the same time seems to be a habit amongst bloggers, doesn't it?

Ohhh yes! Had one myself. Those big front teeth can remove a good chunk of skin! Tore a chunk from may cat once as he attempted to ummm... you know... have his way & "breed" her. :P

Oh, and the rear claws, they can scratch pretty good!

Olivia said...

Minstrel - um...are you...are you alright...?

Chris - my neighbour's two cats were afraid of my white bunny. They babysat her when we went on holiday, and told us all about how she tried to make friends with the cats, and they would run away from her, so they would sort of circle slowly round the coffee table. But they loved on her sooo much that when they gave her back she was GREY.

Also, when our male rabbit Muffett would hump Dapple, she would turn round and try to hump him back, and vice versa, so we would be witness to a mad tangled ball of fluff and legs.

I am wondering ... Usually it is the snake that eats bunnies. Are bunnies starting to become meat-eaters??
Many spieces have changed their menu in lack of what used to be normal food.

I've had a couple bunnies myself, and yes they are cute, but I know all too well how they can take your finger off! :)

I'm not a fan of snakes (sorry, but I would never hurt them, just don't like 'em) so I was excited to see the rabbit chase it up a tree.

Grrr! I hope you eventually get an answer off the auction house, thats not fair! You're more than qualified, and very clever with art stuff.
