Buns the mystery bunny

So, I drove home from work yesterday and the snowbank started moving as I turned on to my street. I wasn’t hallucinating, it was a big white bunny hopping around sniffing the snow. I was practically home, so I went up to my apartment and told Randy that I was worried about the little guy because he was just sitting around on the side of the road. He just said, “Oh, someone is probably looking for him. That is probably his yard.” Five hours later, Randy came home from work and the poor thing was still sitting there, so he brought him home.

We got him some rabbit food and made him a little bed, so he seems pretty happy, but we are worried because we have no experience with pets other than dogs and fish. We don’t know his name, so we are sticking with Buns for now. We put out an ad in the News-Miner and are waiting to see if someone wants to claim him. Buns is very well behaved, mellow and enjoys flopping on the floor and sleeping. He is gentle and will eat out of your hand or let you pet him, but gets kind of nervous when you pick him up. You have to kind of hold him close like a baby or he gets all shaky and scared.

To be honest, I am kind of worried about how Randy will handle it if Buns’ family comes to claim him. We’ve gotten a bit attached. Lol.

Here are some photos of the little guy:


Bun likes the presents

It all started with a bear named Muhammad

A British primary school teacher spent over a week in Sudanese prison because of a teddy bear named Muhammad. Apparently Sudan is very persnickety about blasphemy and the teacher, Gibbons, could have faced a public lashing or up to six months in jail for allowing the bear to bare the name of the Islamic prophet. The Sudanese president found it in his heart to pardon her this morning and said she would be sent home to England immediately. I find it hard to believe that Muhammad would be terribly offended by the blasphemous teddy bear, but the school thinks the possible backlash from Islamic extremists is a serious possibility and has decided to close down until January. It’s a crazy world we live in.
Note to self: When in Sudan, do not let a group of seven-year-olds name the class teddy bear.

Our streak is over

Well, I’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that the Nanooks finally won a hockey game Friday night. The bad news is we lost again today. We are now 1-8-1 and second to last in the CCHA standings. Kind of depressing, but no matter what happens from here on out, we will always have Friday’s win. November 30, 2007 was a good day to be a Nanook.

A side note: Why were our other two goalies sitting by the pep band during the game? It was kind of funny to see Johnson and Largen all suited up and just chatting with the trumpet players during the game instead of sitting in the box. Random.
