HippyHop - Thanks! Haha. I agree, I think all my buns are gorgeous but Benji certainly is something special as far as looks go! My buns all love willow as well, at least the unpeeled kind, they don't care much for the already peeled type. I get them the unpeeled willow balls every now and then, but at around 3-4 bucks a pop they're kind of pricey given just Abigail alone eats the entire thing in like an hour or two, haha. I assume you mean advice about your bun going in to get neutered?

LBJ - Haha, well they would all love a squeeze too! Well, aside from Rorschach, he's not the cuddliest of bunnies. He likes to be petted, but only for shorter periods of times and mainly at his choosing, haha. Abigail and especially Benji though will just sit there and let you pet them FOREVER. I barely even have to touch Benji and he instantly flops down to be petted.
That sucks that your adviser is being the way he is, you would think he could chill out a bit. I'm certain things will work out though.

Tanlover - To update my previous post, we went and saw Skyfall earlier! I liked it a lot.

Hi LBJ, Is it possible that it's the way your adviser has written it, this is why email etc can be misleading. I have often been accused of being abrupt, overly direct or rude simply because I have worded something badly, well, not badly but in a manner that was not necessarily familiar to the recipient, in an effort to keep it short and failed to use emoticons. This is not saying anything negative (cos I just read through what I wrote and could see the potential there for confusion, I'm getting better at reading these things ) I know how hard you're trying and the crap you have had to take fro some others. Just offering a possibility. Can you schedule a face to face to get some clarity ?

Thanks RR!

Roberta - Oh no, he was perfectly clear. I did ask him if we could meet after things have calmed down. I have been running around crazy these last few weeks. I haven't received a response yet, but I imagine I will hear back Monday.

Haha Mike! You're sad because it's going to be in the 60s/70s. I'm sad because it's going to be in the 30s.

Of course LBJ!

Haha, Mike, I second LBJ's comment, Monday and Tuesday is supposed to be in the 30's for me as well. So I'll gladly trade you for your 60's/70's!

Haha, that reminds me of the winters when I was growing up in Sweden Imais! I so **fondly** remember around those temperatures of -15 to -20 Celsius when your nostrils would stick together just from breathing when you were outside, haha.

Ugh, tell me about it! Winter hasn't even arrived yet. They're calling for a rough one too - Montreal is to expect days at -30 celsius before wind chill!! Not looking forward to this haha lets hope the weather analysts are wrong!

LBJ -- Yeah, I was emancipated from my parents when I was 15 so lucky me, I've always gotten pretty excellent financial aide packages.

RavishingRabbit -- Just came back from Skyfall and absolutely LOVED it!

And to the above conversation, I HATE cold weather. Thankfully the past few days in Pittsburgh have been really nice. High 50's and such. Can't complain since it got sooooo cold after Hurricane Sandy!

I love the 4 seasons that Washington gets, even though most of the time it is pretty rainy and cloudy. I am thankful for it -- it could be a lot worse, but it isn't.

The Mister and I are going to Seattle tomorrow for the hell of it. I think we are going to this huge Japanese market in downtown Seattle and doing lots of walking around and window shopping. I need to pick up some stationery at the Japanese bookstore. SO MANY CUTE THINGS   I wonder if I will find the seasonal Japanese kitkats there

I think I might see Sky Fall tomorrow

tanlover - Really? Well I suppose that would qualify you for more stuff. I never qualified for financial aid until I got married. Weird how that worked. LOL

I forgot to tell you guys. I have an interview this week. It's at the place where I couldn't get a hold of them after they contacted me for an interview.

This may sound like a stupid question -- but how hot is too hot for our little bun buns? I've never had the problem to worry about since we've almost always had air conditioning the whole time we've had them since April so I'm not really sure. But since we've had air conditioning our place has always been set at a steady 70-72 degrees F. Except now that they've turned it off for the winter and the heating on it's about 75-76. I see my buns lounging around a lot more on the plastic on the bottom of the cage so I wasn't sure if perhaps they are getting too warm or what -- I'm probably being WAY over protective butttttt I can't help but wonder if I'm torturing them and should give them some cold ice water bottles or something? Opinions, thoughts?

Hi Tanlover,

80F or 27C. They like Coolie bottles from about 25C so you could put one or two in the area and they will decide if they want to lay on them. Thankfully my new bunny room stays cool, before the back room could get to ambient temp which was on one occasion 45C. I spent the Summer without any form of cooling whilst the buns got the swampy to keep their area comfy (worked too, I kept their immediate area around 28C and would go through about 15 coolie bottles a day with the help of a neighbour coming in to change the bottles during the day)

I know it's still a month away but any started working out what they're getting their pets (not humans) for Christmas? Girls are going in for their spay so that's their present and I'm upgrading Loki's crate to a 48", still don't know what I'll get my kitties though.

Goodness things have been crazy for me. I'm glad to hear that everyone is doing semi-well. =]

TL you have to post pictures of the party! =] I'm glad it went well. Good luck on the accounting! We have several people coming in for the economics side of it. It seems all really interesting. But to be honest my brain has a really hard time wrapping around the math behind.

LBJ is there no way you can transfer schools? I know it can be a massive pain in the ass to do but if you feel like you might get better guidance somewhere else it might be better. I hope things get better! I kind of want to punch your advisor in the face. =p

LHM that looks like the weather we've been getting here in FL. Just not as cold and a bit warmer. I don't think the state knows the true meaning of a cold Christmas either. =p

Welcome Ravishing! =] (Back I guess is a better way to put it. ;P)

LoveChaCha I love Japanese stores! I really miss the Japantown in SF that I would go to with my family as a kid growing up. There was this really cute Japanese bookstore/stationary place called Kinokunia that sold the cutest pens and pencils. I've been dying to go back there since I moved but we just never seem to find time. =p (Honestly spending all our time trying to eat as much Asian food as I can when I visit home.)

This week has been exhausting. I really need to find a hematologist near me. It's been a while since I've seen one for my blood disorder and it's really taking a toll on me. This past week I've been getting this sleepy spells. Where I'll start getting really foggy and need to lie down right then and there to sleep for hours on end. It's something that's happened before so I'm not freaked out about it. I just need to get my blood work done and get things squared away. Mainly because it's been affecting my school work and I've missed classes because of it. We lost power for the first time too! 8O It was the oddest thing. Fun and odd and freaky all the same time. Now we know we need to buy a few things. But we packed up Skipper and left for my bf's parents' house so that way she could sleep with some light. It's just too dark where we live to have her sleep with no night lights.

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

Thanks for the info, Roberta. I'll probably stick some in there and see what they do with them. I did it for like 15 minutes the other day to see if they'd decide to and they didn't but I was nervous to leave it in there since they are such little chewers. I can just see Tanger taking his little chompers to one of them and flooding the bunny condo, hahahaha.

SkippersMama -- I just hooked up my phone to my computer when you said that -- so photos are coming! I'm just waiting for my computer to update iPhoto since apparently it needed to be updated and it's taking forever so I probably won't have time to add it into this post but I'll do it as soon as it updates fully! It says it's going to take a half hour, pftttt.

Toady -- I've been thinking about it! I spent my time searching Target yesterday hoping to find a bunny tree ornament so the buns could have their own bunny ornaments on the tree but the BF said we should just order some off-line because I definitely didn't see anything of the such at Target. Booo. They even had lions and such! But no Bunnies! I was showing my BF yesterday how I wanted to get some of those tunnels and cat play things for the buns for Christmas. Not the expensive ones but the cheap ones. I've seen some people here use them for their buns and I used to have one for my cat and ferret so I think I've convinced him to get them! I keep meaning to make the buns their little destruction house out of a cardboard box so I'm debating whether to just wait and make it for Christmas or not, hahaha. We decided to put up our tree right after Thanksgiving -- wish us luck that the buns don't decide to get out and tear the thing down! It's right on the other side of their play area, haha!

tanlover - They should be alright. You can give them a cooling bottle or a slab (my buns have a Chin Chiller). If they want to lay on it, they will.

Toady - It will probably be treats for the dog this year. The buns need some new toys, so I will have to check some stuff out.

Skippersmama - I can't transfer now. I am all but thesis, I don't have any classes left to do.
