things i learned this week...

gratuitous bunny shot

~ zumba is HUGE among the over-forty set in the back of beyond. (don't worry, i haven't tried it, so the populace is uninjured.)

~ whatever lego wants, lego gets.

~  sometimes people are just assholes and there's not much you can do about it. it's best for your sanity to just get over that.

~ when the child gets sick, she goes down fast. and whines kind of a lot.

~ you can work for the mayor and not have a clue as to what's going on in your community.

~ there's nothing to stop the wind between us and the north sea. (and lemme tell ya, it's blowing.)

~ a lot of people have their own domain.

~ teachers apparently have lower divorce rates than the general population (informal and potentially sketchy evidence based on a sample of 21 - tho' the divorce rate was 0% among those polled).

~  the handmade movement has not come to denmark.

~ those jerkies at dk hostmaster (the people who insist on centrally managing the .dk domains) are ROTTEN at customer service.

~ sometimes when the bunny escapes, it's permanent.

i'm sure there's more, but that's what i've got right now.  happy weekend, one and all!!

Doesn't sound like a "good" set of things but learning is good...

Love the bunny. What fabulous fur {hair?} he has on his head! I can just picture him with horned rimmed glasses and good book...:)

Crazy wind here too...Atlantic ocean, the island of Newfoundland.

Hope you have a better weekend!

hi AnDee - it is a kind of negative list, but strangely, i don't feel that negative. maybe i got it out of my system writing it. either that, or the wind blew away the negativity. :-)

Agreed. The holidays are lovely and all, but I find myself hyper-aware of mean people during December. Weird that a time of year celebrating light and love brings out the idiots in full force. I choose sanity, so like you I've learned to get over them. Mostly.

When do you think the handmade movement will arrive, if ever?

I gather the escapee is still on the lam. Hope he finds a nice little hole to snuggle up in.

The featured bunny is absolutely fabulous! I am forwarding a one way first class ticket to send his little furry self to me, will he need
a passport?

Have a good weekend.

Someone moved in our neighborhood and just turned their bunnies loose. Big white fluffy bunnies. They apparently mated with the wild bunnies because we had a lot of strange looking bunnies running around for a while.
