I'm 21 but with all my health issues I feel older. That and I've always acted older than my years and now I'm starting to regret that

I'm having issues with the rescue lady. I feel like I have to keep pestering her to move along with this adoption thing. I know she's busy but you'd think she'd be excited to adopt a bun to a good home. Maybe it's just that she always seems so different in text/email than in real life. Idk. I'm worried this is going to get put off and I'm only going to get busier. My plan for this upcoming weekend is to start building condo #2 while my dad is still letting me keep his power-tools. Although I gotta be careful, been having a clumsy streak. Yesterday lost my balance bending over the baby gate and me and it came crashing down face first. Needless to say I feel like I got hit by a car today.

MM- Wishing you all the best. What is CRF? ***Hugs***

Age means nothing. You can only be young once but immature forever!!!! I'm 30 and I feel 18 and am pretty sure I will always feel that way.

I love October. One of my fave months. I love Halloween. We're having a costume party at my barn. I'm either going to be a gypsy or a vampire since I won't have to buy much. Not sure if I'm going to dress up Winnie or not.

October is also my husband and I's anniversary. 1 year of marriage, 11 years together on the 22nd.

wowza. No one acts the age I think they are!! Y'all are a lot younger than I'd expected

In other news. I got a rabbit today. You guys were right..... when you know, you know, and with this guy I knew. Once again, not the breed I wanted but personality is more important. A new topic will be posted soon


also back on the topic of weather. It's 85* here and sunny! well, at least for another 30 minutes and then we'll have some epic thunderstorms for 5 minutes, then it will be sunny again!

zoologist, Congrats!

LPT, I love Halloween too. I met Sammykins ON Halloween. Talk about meant to be. Just a pair of witches recognizing each other.

Since you don't need to buy a costume to be a vampire, does that mean you are up mostly at night and need front dental work?

Totally looking forward to Halloween, it's my favorite day of the year! And October has all the good stuff, i.e. pumpkin spice flavored EVERYTHING (coffee, cappuchino, donuts, beer, waffles, etc).

Good for you! I hate cinnamon, so it's not a good time for me...

 

Tanlover, you could always get a big box from a hardware store and carry the bale in it, but I guess people might start asking what's in it if you do it regularly. Maybe you guys just need to move to a bunny friendly place

 

zoologist, congrats on your new bunny! How about some pictures?

RabbitPam -- HAHAHAHAHHAHA. Best. Post. Ever.

But then I read Roberta's and I also laughed hysterically.. You guys are tooooo much! ALSO, my boyfriend just got me to fall in love with Star Trek! He started me on Voyager because he thought I may not like some of the REALLY old ones and because it has a strong female lead!

Zoologist -- CONGRATS!! I LOVEEEE new bunnies and since I already have THREE rugrats now I have to use BB and the bunnies you guys get to satisfy my new bunny cravings! PICS, PICS, PICS!!

Hazel -- we actually were doing that with the carriers and our buns to sneak them back and forth for vet appts during their neuter/spay and their first bunny appts. We got some really weird looks. If it were just neighbors we wouldn't care as much but we have to walk past security people so thats when it starts to look suspicious! And we probably would move to a bunny friendly place BUT my boyfriend owns our condo and doesn't plan on selling and buying a new place for at least 5 more years most likely. Which is funny -- the only reason we even thought of having rabbits was because of that rule. And now we are those "crazy rabbit people".

LPT -- Congrats on your anniversary! 11 years is a longggg time! Today was my boyfriend and I's one year, three month. Hahaha, I never really keep track but I know the date so when it pops up I just remember and since you said something it reminded me! I was actually thinking about being a vamp for Halloween also! I've been obsessed with that series True Blood lately and just read all the books... soooooo....

Hey, I'm new to this forum. I kind of need a little bit of help. I don't know how to post a new thread, but I can't really ask by posting a thread because I don't know how! So commenting on here might be able to help me! Could somebody give me a few instructions? It says on the forums that I need to log in to post threads and view profiles and reply on threads. I am obviously, so where do I go from here? Thanks in advance, sorry if that was confusing... I'm new, and need to learn everything! x

Hi Bunny Girl, Its still early in the AM in the states and a lot of people will be waking up, or heading off to work/school so don't fret if I a the only one to respond for a bit. I am pretty sure I can talk you through this one though. OK The "you must be logged in" warning will always be visible, if your are not sure look in the top right hand corner and if it has the "sign out" option showing then you are still logged in. Next look at the forum banner and click on Forums, the scroll down and select a topic, under the banner for that forum is a little box "Add Topic" click there and start typing... If you posted to this thread then you were logged in at the time. I'll see if I can get the pictorial link from the tech forum.

Just in case no one has checked yet a certain Bun Mum now relocated to Spain has made the trek to an internet Cafe, due to their internet not yet being connected in the new house, to let us know that the messages have been received with great joy and love and RUFUS is doing just fine in his new home and made the trip almost unscathed barring a few hours of recovery before a big binky blitz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rufus survived Live Cargo and is now a Spanish resident !

bunnygirl, welcome! You came to the right place for anything bunny related!

 

tanlover, I don't understand how they can put restrictions on your boyfriend if he owns the condo. Shouldn't he be able to do what he wants with it?

Welcome, bunnygirl! It's always great to have new BB'ers! We definitely need to see pictures soon of your little bun bun! How old is he and what breed??!?! I'm dying to get to know the little (or big) guy!

Hazel -- I'm not really sure exactly. I asked him the same thing. He told me they can't really force you to get rid of them but they can fine you for having them. They being the Condo Committee that watches over the building and such. He said it has a lot to do with how much they can sell the condos for and such since animals tend to bring down the price of things when they destroy a condo. It still seems pretty silly to me but I know it's a thing because I've seen an old lady (we have a lot of old people here) sneaking her cat back up the elevator in a box! Hahahaha. So I know we're not the only ones. He's looked for the papers (not very hard) because he couldn't remember if you couldn't have cats and dogs or if it said all animals.

My brats are currently BANGING on the bunny condo wanting to be let out -- which they will have to WAIT! They need to learn that I need my first cup of coffee and some BB'ing before it's bunny play time. I had another doctor's appt today which I had to cancel because the condo under us started having a leak in their bathroom... Since we are bunny smugglers I stayed home all day with all 3 locks locked until my boyfriend comes home from work and then I have to go into work 2 hours late!! We have 3 locks but the bottom lock the condo complex committee has the key to all those locks in case they ever need to get into a condo and no one is home -- but there's also another top lock (which we don't think they have a key for but not sure since it's been the lock since my boyfriend moved here) so he's just picking up a new top lock tonight to switch on the door so we KNOW they don't have a key and then I have one of those little chain type locks on too. Hahahaha. We're totally paranoid that someone will find the bunbuns but I'd rather be paranoid than have to pay a ridiculous fine in a house that we own! BLEH.

Just started reading Crime and Punishment last night -- what a good book so far!! Already a 112 pages in! Anyone else read it?

I just read your other post!! hahaha, I think I commented on it too but I comment on so many posts now I tend to lose track! I'm so excited for you -- you definitely sound like you're going to be a great addition to the BB community! My boys are a riot so I'm sure you'll love your little guy!

And the poking stick is already out! Hahahhahah.

Welcome Bunnygirl! Hope you enjoy your time at BB! =]

TL that's just crazy I'm sorry. Then again I'm not a fan of housing commitee in general. If I want to let my grass to grow to more than inch then I will! Hahaha. I'm only joking. But you get the point. If I own the place I should be able to do what I want with. What is Crime and Punishment? I've never heard of it before. (I really need to find myself another book. I've put off finishing my current book because I know there is nothing to replace it.)

Today's turned out to be rotten so far and it's not even over with. Willow, our fat fiesty cat, decided to full on attack me last night when Skipper was out. Willow doesn't technically belong to me but my bf's mom. It's a long story but we're currently living with them until we move out in a few weeks. Well his mom totally beotched me out last night for "egging" on the cat and "asking" to be attacked by her. I kind of just stared at her dumbfounded. If I hadn't been there when Willow snapped I wouldn't have a rabbit anymore! Skipper would have been a midnight snack for the cat. And she didn't care. Skipper wasn't understanding the situation and got really upset because I removed Willow from the room (poor girl just wanted a fuzzy friend). So Skipper started aggressively digging at me and biting really hard to the point where she drew blood. Let's just say that Skipper was still holding a grudge this morning from last night. Of course, she decided to be a terror in retaliation.

Here is something to kind of laugh over since it's done and over with but it was a little aggrivating at the time. I was supposed to give a presentation this morning for a class and essentially teach how to develop a character to my creative writing class. My teacher had totally forgotten I was going to teach the topic and was going to teach it instead! So trying to just go with the flow I asked if I should just change my topic since she was going to present it. My poor teacher was caught off guard and asked if I was ready. All I have to say I'm frickin' lucky that I decided to just finish up my lesson/presentation yesterday or I would have been screwed. I kind of winged it and did the presentation a little half-assed. I feel so bad for my classmates having to sit there as I stumbled through it. It's kind of making me rethink wanting to be a teacher though. If I did that horribly how can I expect to do well with a group of kids? *Sigh* I think I just need to go and pound my head against a desk for a bit before maybe drowning all thought in a game of Guild Wars. xD

That's crazy, SkippersMama! I would've been mad! Luckily, my boyfriend is allergic to cats so I won't ever have to deal with those and my bunbuns! Poor Skipper, just wanting a furry little buddy! It really does suck having a committee to "run" things. But sometimes it's useful too. Like they deal with putting all new carpets down in the hall and making sure everything runs smoothly. They also take care of things like the fire alarms and because of them we don't have to pay for utilities except for electric and our heat and air conditiioning is included in our monthly condo fees. So it's nice to have to worry about those things.

tanlover, I totally understand your apartment paranoia...I'm in the exact same situation haha. There have definitely been days when I've stayed home expressly for the purpose of bunny-guarding since Peppy isn't on my lease.

I tried picking up Crime and Punishment a few years ago after enjoying another Dostoyevsky, but I just couldn't get into it! I think it's still sitting unfinished on my shelf...I'm kind of finicky with Russian literature I guess, haha. Ever read The Master and Margarita? It's one of my favorites.

I LOOOOOOOVE (love love love love love) Dostoyevsky, and Crime and Punishment is my favorite of his, followed very closely, by The Brothers Karamazov. The Idiot is also rather good. And I agree with Peppypoo: The Master and Margarita is fantastic. Especially the first half when everything goes amok. Russian literature is one of my favorite types of lit.

TL- I know what you mean about housing committees! My boyfriend and I both rent and we haven't told our apartment complex about our animals. Heck, since I moved out of my parents house in '08 I've been keeping animals in apartments with no animal rules. My hedgehog and rats used to live in my closet, my ferrets on the porch. No one noticed a thing.
In our new place they do "inspections" every 6 months. The first time we got that notice I FREAKED OUT!!! We had four cats, a 55 gallon tank and a hedgehog to deal with. Luckily we had a detached garage so we lugged all the cat stuff into the garage in the middle of the night and brought the cats down in boxes the next morning. I made sure to stay home all day, just in case. When they came to inspect all they did was check the sprinklers, test the fire alarm and house alarms, and take a general look around for any damage. They didn't even go into the bedrooms or closets (like they said they would over the phone). Now I don't freak out about inspections. They don't know who we are, they don't carry our lease with them, as far as they know we're allowed to have cats. Technically we can only have two, but my cat and my boyfriend's older cat sleep in the closet during the day so no one ever sees them.

Skipper- don't count out teaching because you floundered on one presentation! Teaching kids is so much easier than teaching peers. I was a camp counselor and we focused on marine science, so we would teach the kids while having fun. SO much easier to talk to the kids than it was to give a report in front of my public speaking class. What age are you looking to teach? I love older kids. I think I would teach 8th grade if I went in that direction.

UCF has a football game on Thursday which means all but one of my classes are cancelled. Hooray for an early weekend!
