Hazel - check out Craigslist and local rescues. There are always large rabbits being given up and in my experience it is so much more rewarding to rescue than to get one from a breeder.

Right now the idea of another bunny in this house is CRAZY to me. I'm exhausted with just 2 thank ya. lol (of course we just did bonding and litter box cleaning so of course I'm going to say that)

I'm a little stressed. Trying to manage it by making tons of list. There's just so much I want/need to do and not enough me or time to do it. AHHH!

I'm would have to agree to Frankie on that one. The thought of any more buns makes me a little sick to the stomach haha.But I do have six at the moment.

I'm so completly stressed at the moment. I'm having to pack up and go to my mothers house because we just found mold and I have to hide the rabbits from the landlord. This means taking apart and moving three cages and six rabbits all in one car. And all this is happening tomorrow. I have one cage taken apart and ready to go but i have to wait til we are ready to leave to take apart the other one. And then the smallest one will act as a car seat for oreo and the babies and thump will go in the carrier. Plus i have class tomorrow so i just completly BS'ed a speech to give tomorrow and I have to get up for this exhausting day in 4 hours. Loving life at the moment.

but its better than having to pay a security deposit of 625 for EACH RABBIT and 50 bucks a month. No thank you

@NikitaSue20, wow thats crazy!! Me and my roommate had to pay a $500 damage deposit and a $500 pet deposit, but that was a one time returnable fee and we have FIVE animals. And the landlord gave us 60 days to pay the pet deposit so we weren't giving up 2 grand in the first month. And our landlord couldn't care less about my rabbits, once she found out they were neutered. She only cared about our cats peeing on things because she's had problems in the past.

Holy cow NikitaSue! That's crazy! How are the littles fairing? They must know that something's up.

Tanlover now that I think about it. They sell these lightbulbs here in FL not sure if they do in Pittsburg but they're called Party Lights. And their colored. Which might be easier then the celophane. I didn't know they existed until a few months ago when my bf said something about them. Whenever we did parties and decorating I've always just used the celophane. =p

I'm a really proud Mama today. Skipper was so naughty this morning but I can't help but be proud that she exercised her little brain and used her critical thinking skills! We let her have the run of the other side of the house last weekend when she was sick to get her belly moving from the running around. We, also, figured it would help with relieving some of the gas. Well, this whole past week she's been trying to chew through the baby gate we always have up to make sure we don't let her out there. We were worried that she would ingest a lot of plastic from the gate and ended up throwing a blanket over it. She wasn't having the blanket. It was royally pissing her off and she wanted on the other side of the gate. This morning she figured out that she can jump over the gate to get to the other side of the house. =p So naughty but so proud of her that she figured it out. xD Such conflicting emotions.

Aw so cute! Naughty little skipper haha.

Ruby does the same with my basement. I live with my parents and my father wasn't very happy when he discovered she had nibbled the mouldings as a baby. Needless to say she's not allowed there anymore. I sometimes bring her on the ground floor when I am watching tv, and often leave the door to my bedroom open when she is playing in there (her cage is also in there). But she knows her way around the house so as soon as I'm not looking she sneaks away to go down there.

The funniest part is that she apparently knows that it's my father who doesn't allow her to play down there anymore(of course she knows I'd like her to have the run of the house) because if she sees him on her way down she scurries back in to my room as quick as she can and lies down near her cage as if to say "what do you mean? I was here the whole time!"

Holy crap Nikita O_O! If your landlord finds out, you have to pay a pet fee?! That is crazy. My current apartment has dog and cat owners paying a monthly fee and also some dog types are banned. I just think that dogs deserve a big yard and place to play in I asked about Chacha before my dad and I moved into our current apartment and we got away with not having to pay the monthly fee due to her being a 'caged animal,' which is utter complete bull

I just finished my Test on 'Assisting with Office/Ambulatory Surgery' and got an 87.5%! Woot! I didn't do so well on the last Test (some of the questions in that test were not even stuff I read in the book O_o) but I still passed it. I will take an 87 any day

As I was finishing up the test, I saw Chacha eat her cecal and make this WEIRD snort noise.. it almost sounded like a fart. After she did that, she went back into her loafing position and is currently sleeping next to me. o_O It totally caught me off guard, but she is fine.

Nikita: that's insane. What is it with landlords and thinking bunnies are nightmare terrors that are going to destroy their property?? My landlord agreed to let me have a bun with no fee provided I keep her caged 24/7. *snort* Yeah like that was going to happen. It's like they don't realize bunnies are potty trained and won't destroy too much provided you give then enough toys. O_o

I feel like I've been absent far too long. I stop by everyday by rarely have the time to actually say hi or do anything besides great new people. My thesis has taken over my entire existence. This is the third weekend in a row I have to write 20+ pages of the first chapter. My eyes may begin to bleed from translating Greek and reading insanely dull commentary (that I don't agree with) on my texts. I'm lecturing for the first time in my TA class on Monday. Super nervous, especially since it's a class on American Religion and that's soooooo not my area.
Cinnabuns' good. Her spoiled attitude is really coming across the past few days. I feel like a bad bun mom somedays cause I'm so super busy and I haven't been able to spend as much time with her as I normally do. She hangs out next to my desk while I work and I try to stop at least once an hour and talk to her.
Well, back to my insanity.

You know Cinnabun you have a really good point. I'm surprised by the amount of lack of knowledge that people have about rabbits! I have now become known as the crazy bunny girl since I have gotten Skipper. (But I only talk so much about her because I want to educate people about proper bunny care.) Any way, I was talking about Skipper at work and there were quite a few people in there and I started talking about how nervous I was about getting Skipper spayed and how proud of her I was with how well her litter habits have been since we moved. They were completely shocked when I told them she lives in a 6ft cage, gets 3-4 hours of playtime (when I'm in school), and knows how to use a litter box to keep things sanitary.

I hope your thesis goes well Cinnabun! =] What are you getting your Masters in and what's your goal in the long run of things? Like what do you want to teach? (Sorry forgot. >.>)

Hahahaha LoveChaCha! That's too cute/funny. Buns are always full of surprises. =p Woot woot on the test! I hate it when teachers but questions on the test when you're like wtf is this? We didn't go over this in class nor was it covered in the book. >.<

Well, things are going well over here. =] Skipper's being a terror wanting to ruin the sanctity of the neutral territory on the other side of the house. (MUST HAVE NEUTRAL TERRITORY! >=O) Other than it's all good. =] Sort of flippin' out over who to take my British Lit class with since both teachers are HORRIBLE. They had terrible ratings on RateMyProfessor. And I've had some people come into work that had/have her....it's just not good news. So I'm trying to figure out if I should take it online with a professor who gives really tricky tests or in person with a professor is just nuts/insane. Dx We're having a house warming party net weekend that I'm trying to plan for. I have no clue what I'm doing. And the house still has tons of boxes that needs to be unpacked. xD I've been trying to put off unpacking so hard core because I just hate it. =P REALLY excited for HALO 4 this Tuesday. The bf, his brother-in-law and I are going to the midnight release for it. =]

Thanks Masters in Comparative Religion with a focus on Early Christianity and its relationship to Greek cult religion and mythology. I want to get my PhD and teach in the long run. Hopefully I'm headed to PhD land after I finish my thesis and graduate in 2013.

Holy crap Cinnabun! That would make my head spin. I was raised with very religious parents and since having grown up and exposed to different things I'm totally screwed up in the way I view religion. So I feel like I would have no clue on how to teach the subject. What in the world made you want to teach Religion? (I promise I don't mean it meanly. I'm just blown out of the water. That's totally crazy-in a good way-and not something you see everyday.)

Wow CinnabunMom that's impressive! Good luck on teaching I'm just finishing up Cegep now (5 more weeks!!) and applied to start at McGill in the fall! Wish me luck, I'm so nervous. They won't even be making any decisions till March but I've been obsessively checking my application status daily since I sent it in haha.

Good luck at McGill!
Well, I went into college knowing I was going to be an ancient history major. Then I took an "Understanding the New Testament" course which proceeded to take the NT and put it into historical perspective. I, having left the church years before and basically deciding I was somewhere between atheism and agnostic, found this fascinating as I had always been frustrated with the differences in the New Testament. And I didn't realize that there were people doing this stuff for a living. I became hooked, especially after I started learning about the texts that are Christian but don't exist in the NT because they were deemed "heretical." I work mostly with texts that aren't in the NT, though I am using the Gospel of John in my thesis as an example of early Christians taking the ways Greeks told myth and making Christian mythology in turn. (PS: totally not trying to talk theology here as I understand people have various level of devoutness, just trying to explain my thesis and how I came to the study of religion). Because I study mythology mostly, my teaching in the future won't be focused so much on the NT itself (though I could teach a course on the gospels if I wanted to...), but I plan on teaching courses on myth, symbols, signs, and other more literary things in Early Christianity and the Greek world. I really hope someday to teach a course on "Myth, Fairy Tales, Science Fiction and Religion" because that basically sums up my entire research outlook.

CBM - I actually think it would be helpful for a person in your line of work to have an "open mind", so don't think that where you are coming from with all of this is weird.

I am in the middle of putting a poster together. I have a conference I am going to in about a week and a half. I have the basic stuff all figured out, now I need to figure out which articles I am going to include in my lit review (at least what will appear on the poster). I want to make sure I'm including important and good examples, without being bogged down with too many since there is limited space. Hopefully I am making sense here. LOL

Thank you again Roberta for the froggie. I am definitely going to include it. =)

 

On another note, I was contacted for an interview for a job. I was a little surprised, but I responded with days I am available to come in for the interview. Didn't hear anything back after that. Huh.

Today was a horrible day at work. It was not only busy, but some of the people.. why are HORRIBLY MEAN people allowed to go shopping? What do they think they will accomplish from being rude to workers?

As I was transferring my iPhone photos onto my personal laptop, I fell asleep on my bed for half an hour, until my Dad got home from work. Did i mention that he has a new job? He works for the casino now. Good benefits - 100% covered. I told him that he better take advantage of that

I misplaced my credit card someplace in the apartment (oh silly me!) so I had to call for a replacement one. I hope I get it in time for the release of a video game o_O;; Don't worry, I make my payments on time : - D

I'm so proud of myself! I cleaned Chacha's anal scent glands ALL BY MYSEELLLLLLLLLFFFFFFFF! I just put her into a bunny burrito and kept her butt sticking out and held her close, and slowly put her onto her back. I used a little canola oil on a q-tip and got the icky gunk off her glands. ICK! I did not smell anything - I am so happy that she is such a clean bunny She was so pissed afterward! So I gave her a blueberry craisin in return!

Ah, the talk of school I'm in a special grant program based on income, and there is a counselor that helps students meet their goals. She wanted to meet with students one on one to talk about progress. She was so encouraging. She told me that I should not beat myself up so much because of 'all of the students that she has spoken to her entire career from grade school to grad school' she says that I am one that has truly impressed her. She told me that I should not limit myself to wanting to become a Nurse and maybe shoot for ARNP. We shall see though I want to do many other things rather just be in school all the time! It made me happy to hear this from her
