What the!?!?!$%#@$%@#?

Yeah, you read that right!  What the!?!?%$&^%%@@#%%#?

People think, Oh, that Blueb, so sweet and quiet, but I have a MOUTH and right now, I am using it!

I share more in common with the Dark Haired Mother than just...hair color.

What is all the cussing about, you are asking?

It seems that Mama Number One -- the one that is super good about worshiping me -- has gone and left us all for this thing called, "Italy."  Like, what the?!?!#^#$*#@%?


Is it cute like me?  Is it soft?  Can you FREAKING HYPNOTIZE IT!?!

I don't think so!!

Yeah, I'm a little peeved, to say the least.  And I am trying to control my mouth for the sake of the children.

Anyway, even BIGGER NEWS is that it seems like that Mama may have escaped my clutches with ZOE in her BAG!

DOUBLE what the!?!$@$%#^$$I&#?

I mean, you know, maybe I am just not noticing Zoe...maybe I haven't even really looked for her...whatever.  It SEEMS like she is gone.

I am thinking we may notice in pictures to come...

Flip Friday

This will be the last Flip Friday in awhile, so Zoe and I put our heads together to come up with something special.


OK, well, it may not be what you think.

This black and white movie is a black and white movie because it stars....Black and White Animals!!!

Specifically, it stars two of the Lilypad's famous Black and White Animals. You will see the ones, but one has Thumbs, and one has, well....Very Long Ears.

A special thanks goes out to the Chick, who filmed the footage for this particular film. It has a rough, documentary feel to it, which matches the rough and tumble subjects.

Without further delay then, we present to you A Black and White Movie:

Have a great weekend!!!

Next Wednesday at This Time....

OK, so on Monday I wrote about how on Monday next week, I will be getting ready to go to Italy.

Well, on Wednesday of next week, I will actually be......IN ITALY!

That is really weird to think about.  It feels like it's not even real.  And I have a feeling that when I am there, it will still feel that way.  Unreal.  Or, maybe what I mean is Surreal.

In any case, at this time next week, I will be in Italy.  More precisely, I will be in Milan.  I am hoping to blog while on my trip.  I am at least hoping that I can share some pictures.  From what I have read, Internet access in Italy, and specifically in Tuscany, which is where I will spend a large portion of my trip, is rather sketchy.

I will do my best to keep you all up to date on my travels.  If I cannot, I hope that the Rabbits will entertain you.  It is what they have been instructed to do.  We shall see if they do it!

"We'll see about that!  Do we get Italian Willow Balls for our trouble?"

Well good luck trying to get The Rabbits to entertain you.  I've done what I can.

Next Monday at This Time...

It is hard to believe, but next Monday at this time, I will be preparing to leave for Italy the very next day. That means that a week from tomorrow, I will actually be FLYING TO ITALY!!!

It's been a long time since my mom told me she was going to go to Italy and asked me to go, too. It seemed so far in the future for so long that it didn't seem like a real thing that I would actually do.

But now, the time approaches. I don't feel ready at all! But then, I also feel very ready. It's a strange feeling. I guess I feel ready to have an adventure, ready to experience new things, ready to be somewhere else for awhile. But, being away from home is always weird. I am used to my routines of home and work, used to the people I see everyday, and most of all, I am used to having 2 Rabbits, 4 cats, and the Chick always with me. This will be the longest time all of us have ever been apart.

Therein lies any apprehension I feel. The separation will be uncomfortable, to say the least.

I mean, look at these faces!!


I will be missing those faces for 3 whole weeks!  GOOD GRIEF!!!

Wish me luck.

OK, so what is with me?

For the second time this week, I forgot to write a blog.  And, I forgot to make a Rabbit Movie!!

It's weird. 

I'm blaming the hives and the drugs for the hives!

This coming week, I'll be gearing up for my trip to Italy, so stay tuned!

"Good Grief!  Just stop forgetting the Rabbit Movies!!"

Ships and Stuff

It was brought to my attention by a couple of people yesterday, that there was no blog on Monday.

Apparently, that was the case.  In the midst of having hives and being on and off medications for said hives over the last couple of weeks, it seems as though...I forgot.

Weird, but true.

I forgot what day it was, or I forgot that I write a blog at all.  (Well, I should say that I assist in the writing of a blog, shouldn't I?)  The point is, writing the blog was forgotten.

Had I remembered to write a blog on Monday, however, what I would have written about is  

More to the point, what I would have done was post some of my photos from this event.  So, instead of doing that on Monday (since it is much too late for that now), I will get to the business of showing you those photos right now.  I took a ton of photos, but these were some of my favorites:

One of the best parts of this event was that I was able to see all this and take tons of photos while on my lunch hour from work.  It is awesome to work at a place that is right on such a beautiful Great Lake!

If you are an Erie-ite (or a cat or a Rabbit who doesn't leave the house) and you missed this event, you missed out.  The ships were awesome!  But they will come again.  I think they are actually coming back in a couple of years-- in 2012-- to commemorate the War of 1812.  So, if you did miss out, you can get in on that action.

There you have it:  Ships and Stuff.  Brought to you on Wednesday instead of Monday by a drug addled and forgetful animal.

Happy Wednesday!

Flip Friday

It occurred to me recently that we haven't had a good, old-fashioned Rabbit Eating Greens Movie in awhile.

Are you up for that?  Are you?

Because I am.  And really, I don't see how you couldn't be.  A Rabbit Eating Greens Movie is SO appealing!

In case you've been missing it as much as I have, here you go!!!

Pure Rabbit Entertainment

Since I am still not fully recovered from my hives and am a bit drugged out, Zoe and Blueberry suggested that we show you a couple of videos of Top Secret Bunny Activities that you may not know about.

Of what do I speak?

Well, in case you didn't know, in European countries, Bunnies jump for sport.  They compete in jumping and agility contests!  It all looks quite exciting!!

If you didn't know-- NOW YOU DO!  And, to prove it, here are some videos:


The Bunnies thank you for watching.

What a Long, Strange Trip

For anyone out there who has never had hives, I say this to you: YOU ARE A FORTUNATE SOUL!

Seriously, you are.

Actually, though I have spent the last two weeks covered in unattractive welts and with my face swollen to the size of a basketball, I am extremely grateful that it is simply hives that I have.  They are annoying, uncomfortable and many other things that I won't say, but they will go away.  I will get better. 

I called my sister the other day to tell her about my hives.  I was feeling pretty discouraged and down and was probably more than a tad whiny.  She proceeded to tell me a story about a boy who attends the school where she works who is so allergic to the sun that he has to wear head to toe protective clothing everywhere he goes.  They had to put a special dimming film over the windows so that he could sit in his classroom for the whole school day. 

Can you even imagine that?

It's given me a whole new appreciation for this organ that is my skin.  It's given me a whole new appreciation for my body's ability to heal itself, slowly, but surely. 

So, yes, it's annoying and uncomfortable, but it has reminded me simultaneously of the limits and the power of my my body and of how blessed I am to have both those limitations and that power.

You should, right now, take a moment to thank your skin for what it does.  It is super busy doing jobs that you never thank it for.  While you're at it, thank all your organs.  Tell them you appreciate their contributions to your life. 

Go ahead.  Your organs are waiting.

And now, because you were good, here is a picture of a Rabbit:

You can thank Her for something, too.  She is waiting patiently.

Flip Friday, The Hot Weather Edition

First let me say thank you to all of you who wrote in to defend Miss Zoe's Right to be in The Banner.

As you can see, your hard work paid off.

Zoe is pleased.

And, it is good.

So, it's Friday-- Flip Friday to be more exact.  It was hot here in the Lilypad when I approached Zoe to star in a movie to thank Her fans for speaking up for Her.  It was perhaps 9 million degrees Fahrenheit.  Add the heat index, and you get somewhere in the trillions of degrees.   That's hot for us Northern Folk.

(Of course, it's a bit cooler in the air conditioned Rabbit Room.)

In thanks, however, Miss Zoe mustered up the strength to make this video:

HAPPY FRIDAY!  Have a great weekend!!

Wednesday, September 1, 2010


Many of you would probably say, "Well, I saw THAT coming!"

You might even give me the dreaded, "I TOLD you so!"

You see, for the past many days, I have been suffering from hives.  It is a terrible fate, yes, but I am thankful that it's not something worse.

That's not to say that I've not had enough of them.  That's not to say that they've not made me a tad crazy.

I've been trying to figure out the cause of The Hives.  They feel Epic and Biblical.  They cover pretty much every area of my body (except my torso, knock on wood).  Even my face has not escaped and is swelled to about 40 times it's normal and actual size.

OK, that might be an exaggeration, but whatever.

I am itchy, red, and bumpy and swollen.  In short, I am Monster, akin, I think, to Mary Shelley's monster in Frankenstein.  Well, except that Monster was Super Smart.  Unfortunately, my brain has not gained any size or power.  It is still just the same brain.

Which is perhaps why I didn't notice until today that my Hives and Swollen Faceness started about the same time that we excluded A Certain Someone from the new blog banner. 

Just so we are all on the same page, here, what I am saying is that I believe I have been cursed by Someone who may look familiar to you:

Oh, don't let that Sweet Smile fool you.  Don't be taken in by that Beautiful Eye.  And the Dewlap?  Let's not talk about the Dewlap.  Or the Super Cute Arms.

This Rabbit Has Cursed Me!!!   It may sound Crazy, but it's not.

Really, it's not.

Won't you help to stop my suffering?  Will you help to extract me from my Benedryl Drug Haze?

It's up to you to convince the Blisschick to add a Zoe to the banner!
