Bunnies, Bunnies, it Must be Bunnies! – The Results of a Twitter Conversation

When I first signed up for twitter I really had no idea what I was doing, or how it would help me with my writing. Now I have a modest following and I’ve made some really great connections, not to mention fantastic friends.

Every week I chat with my twitter friends using the tag #authorchat. This was started by three writers, R.K. Grow, Melissa Lemon and Jo Ann Schneider. We have a topic, and mostly we stay on topic, but sometimes we don’t which just makes it more fun. For a schedule of the topics for the next month or so, go HERE.

This week we were talking about blogging. What we like, what we don’t like, and how we go about it. Some of us were worried our followers wouldn’t find our content interesting. We ended up setting ourselves a challenge. As we are all writers, we decided that we needed to blog about something other than writing.

So… I bring you (drum roll please) the Evil Brown Bunny!

She’s not really evil, but sometimes she does bite. Throughout our twitter conversation the idea came up that I should blog about my bunny’s adventures. Well, she doesn’t really have many. Her name is Twitch, and she lives in a five-star, two-storey hutch with a nice spacious nesting box. She comes inside most afternoons and gets to hop around the house, and nibble on things if I’m not paying attention. But mostly when she’s inside she likes to flop down, stretch out her legs, and watch the world go by. She’s not all that interesting actually.

It’s no secret I’m a huge Buffy fan (and I probably should stop finding ways to incorporate that in my posts!) and when I think of bunnies, I can’t help thinking about Anya. She has an irrational phobia of bunnies, and finds them quite scary. My favourite Anya bunny moment is when she sings her part of I’ve Got a Theory in Once More With Feeling (Buffy series 6, episode 7).

I also did some digging around on YouTube (as you do) and found this hilarious clip. It features Gabrielle from Xena: Warrior Princess getting attacked by a bunny with rather large fangs. Kahlan and Richard from The Sword of Truth (which I have never actually read or seen) also make an appearance.

What scares you the most? Do you have an irrational fear of anything? Mine would be clowns. They just give me the willies, and even more so after reading and watching Stephen King’s It.

  1. I'm afraid of deep seas and deep sea animals, especially whales and sharks. When I saw Cast Away in the theaters, I had a panic attack when Tom Hanks was in the middle of the ocean ON A RAFT! as a whale swims past giving him the evil eye. Freaky! I love your (evil) bunny. :)

    1. I get the deep sea thing, but I love whales. Sharks I can take or leave. I've never actually seen Cast Away. I remember watching Waterworld though, with Kevin Kostner. I guess you wouldn't like that either...
