Bunny Time



I think the Frightened Rabbit record is real cool. Sort of Archers of Loaf-y sometimes, other times it's like Scottish Bright Eyes, in a good way. Yes, there's a good way. It's anthemic and wistful and smart and sad. Like all the best things are.

FYI, actual rabbits are bogus to the max.

Bunnies are not bogus! I has several bunnies as pets when I was growing up. In fact, they looked just like the Dutch rabbit in the picture (yes, I gravitate toward black and white animals - I think it stems from my early affection for Mickey Mouse.) I took home a couple of bunnies over Easter break when I was in 1st grade and in a month we had like 10 rabbits. The number dwindled over time due to the mother's odd taste for small rabbits. Luckily, my favorite, Templeton, grew up to be a very happy bunny. To avoid any conflict with our cat Cabbage, we drove to a no-kill animal shelter in Libertyville and left the bunny family with a nice old women. The End.

Thank you, Eva. As only some of you know, it is one of my life dreams to have a bunny -- the kind that lives like a cat, sorta free, litterbox-trained, who will cuddle on my lap. This is a dream deferred for the next long while, as we share our house with a large, hyper canine, but don't think for a minute I've given it up. (Especially you, Mark!)

My brother and his kids had a little Bunny named Lilly until they made an important discovery and renamed it Rusty The Red Rocket. They kept the poor thing in a pen outside the house. There is a MAJOR problem with pet bunnies in that most kids lose interest in the first six months and then they end up neglected, abandoned, or worse. I believe Rusty, like Templeton, ended up at the farm as well! So think twice...
