Things We Disapprove Of




*!&;^%$ SNOW!

We were without electricity, heat and water for about 18 hours over the weekend. It was not pretty, but we managed to stay relatively warm and didn't try to kill each other. There's still people doing without, though, so we're counting our blessings.
"Sez you--I'm still miffed that you didn't let me out to play Saturday night.
I expect treats and an apology, pronto."
One last thing: check in here tomorrow (November 1st) for our big giveaway!

WARNING: The following post may cause excessive amounts of *squee*-ing, mainly from the poster.

A bit of backstory first:

As some of you may know (and if you don't know, you should), my friend and fellow bunny-blogger Donna of Lavender Rabbit Hoppenings has a monthly giveaway of some of the absolutely gorgeous jewelry she makes and sells in her Etsy shop . I enter her giveaways each and every month because I am a greedy wench who must have the nice things, and I have been lucky enough to win twice (click here and here for details and pretty pictures).

A short time after the September giveaway, I got an email from Donna. While I hadn't won that particular giveaway, it seemed it wasn't for lack of help. After prize-choosing bun Cooper picked the winning slip, he went back for seconds--and grabbed the slip with my name on it. (Smart bunny, that Cooper.) Donna said she couldn't give me the giveaway prize, but she would be sending me something else...and boy, was she right about the "something else"!

How do you like THIS?!


Extreme closeup *SQUEE*!!

Wearable Mr. Mick! Without the shedding! How can you not love this?

I put it on in a heartbeat, and will not ever be taking it off except for showering and sleeping for quite some time.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, Donna! If I wasn't so darn excited right now, I would be crying. (Don't think there won't be a return giftie, either--for both you and Cooper.)

*ahem* I don't suppose there was anything for me in there?

No worries, Mick; Donna didn't forget you. You'll get your treat tonight.

Tonight? Why not now? Why am I being deprived?

You aren't being deprived. I'm just making sure that somebunny's tummy is fully recovered from all the treats he scrounged the other night--or do you really want another butt bath so soon after the last?

*grumbling under breath* would have to go and bring that up,
wouldn't you? Fine, I'll wait...

I thought you'd see it my way...and since it is indeed 'Tocktober, here's a pic of somebunny's now-clean butt:

*sigh* The things I put up with...I'm getting extra treats for this...

*sigh* The things I have to do around here...

*blows cobwebs off the blog page*

*checks date of last post*

September 14?! MUUUUUUUUM! Honestly, do I have to do everything around here?


Hey all, Mickey here. Apparently Mum has been slacking in her duties as chronicler of my exploits and author of my press releases. Granted, there really hasn't been much going on there lately, but still, my adoring fans need to be kept informed and my adorable face needs to be shown as often as possible. Is that so much to ask?

I've heard that toes are popular lately, so here you go.

Let's see, what's been going on? Well, I was boy-free for about three days--my nemesis went on a weekend trip to Baltimore all by his lonesome last week. Mum was worried, but I was happy to have some peace and quiet for a change. (Heck, I was hoping he'd be gone longer--I might have been able to snag his room.) Of course, he had to come home safe and sound. I think he might have missed me, though; since he came home, he's been somewhat nicer to me--pets me a little more, slips me chunks of apple now and then. I guess he can stay...for now.

Mum has been on one of her "get Mick to try new food" kicks lately--she says the produce available at the local grocery stores hasn't been spectacular, so she's trying to introduce some new stuff so she'll have more options available. So far, the brussels sprouts have been a hit; the swiss chard, not so much. (Don't get me wrong, it's edible, but it just doesn't do much for me.) She's been trying to get me to eat more hay, too, but the really good hay she was getting before is out of stock, and what's been available is just meh. I'm fussy about hay, it's got to be just right before I'll touch it.

I got another new throne last week--now that the weather's getting cooler, Mum's wanting to make sure I have something warm to snuggle on when I want to. She's been wanting to take me outside for some fresh air, but there's just been too many bugs around. She says once the temperature's dropped enough to kill the bugs, she'll get the x-pen out. 

Hmmm, I think that's about everything...whew, this blogging stuff is hard work. I think I need a petting break--hey, Mum!

Ahhhh, much better...

Ok, I think we're done here. I'm gonna take a little nap. Y'all have a good day--and don't worry, I'll make sure Mum does a better job of keeping this thing updated from now on.
