one thing i miss about not flicking through a print newspaper is finding nice photographs to cut out and frame as art around the house.

i love watching bernie & mimi when they're having a grooming session but both want to be the one getting groomed, so they just freeze and wait with their eyes closed and their heads snuggled against each other ;)

i wonder if i'll change my views on monetary values of things when i start work and get paid. at the moment if i see something that i consider expensive then i'll just make it at home if i know how to, even though the time spent making it is probably more than if i was getting paid to do it.
merde. i think i'm gonna change my mind again and not give another craft project away as a present. this is the problem with picking things i like as presents & them taking a while to make!

guess i'll have to go present shopping tomorrow...

bun update

it's been a really long time since i've posted any bunny pictures on this blog. mostly cos i never take my phone/camera when i go outside to their area (and that they're always moving around and hard to take pics of..) 

news since the last time:

- Bernie is actually a girl. i've never bothered to look at her genitals ever since the previous owner told me (4 years ago) that she was a boy and that he's been desexed.. i assume this desexing history is accurate, since she's not moody/aggressive like girl bunnies and she doesn't have a dewlap, which my friend told me is a secondary sex characteristic (ie. needs oestrogen to maintain).
- Mimi got desexed cos i got paranoid ever since our exotics lecturer told us how common uterine cancers were in rabbits as they get older. but then this was followed by TWO bouts of gut stasis and inappetence (ie. super stressful time for her and me). had to force feed her five times a day with special food and give her a gut motility thing (which made me feel like a drug dealer cos i had to empty the capsule and divide the powder into one-fifth portions using a name card). obviously i thought often whether i would have gotten her desexed if i had the chance to go back in time, and if i was advising a pet owner i would really warn them about having to make an effort to feed them every few hours and staying calm when you wait for the medicine to work. she even gained weight after this (cos she only lost 0.01g when i took her back to the vet, and i'm sure the uterus they took out was much heavier - apparently it was big and took longer than usual to take out). i was so grateful she was still willing to swallow the food that i squirted to the back of her mouth... but yeah. it's been nearly a month since the operation and she is a different bunny! less anxious / trying to assert her dominance on Bernie/her area - which means that she's not humping Bernie, more willing to come to me and be patted on the head (though having her wrapped in a towel and on my lap while getting force fed several times a day probably got her used to me -_-"), and generally seems calmer and enjoying life more (obviously i'm just guessing..).

ok. finally pics-time!

short bun feet XD

lol at a sentence from a salmon hatchery website: "the main causes of death are old age and disease" opposed to other causes of fish death?

if you like Biscotti, you are a good person in my mind. and if Biscotti doesn't run away from you, then you get a star!
just got an email from the uni internal mail about guinea pig pups somebody is giving away. and thinking about it, i just realised that there isn't really anywhere indoors in this new house to place a guinea pig enclosure. i could let them run outside where the bunnies are now, but then i can't hv bunnies too.. unless they get along.. aaaargh..

cat pouch necklace

a.k.a. the 'cat guardian secret keeper' - taken from the craft tutorial by Cat Rabbit in the latest issue of Frankie magazine (which has a special craft section! on similar paper to their cake recipes section in the previous issue).

(this was supposed to be a birthday present for a friend, but i can't get over how cute it is.. so now it's not a present..)

i get why a crafter should like cats more than dogs. when you get bored during your project, you can turn most things on your desk into cat toys to play with: pens, string, strip of paper, anything strand-y.

i wonder when my phone will dysfunction, so that i have good reason to get a Galaxy Note..

(but please, universe / phone god, make sure i've transferred everything from the phone beforehand.)
i can't help but lose trust in someone when they stop answering things directly and start talking about how things are, but not why they are like that (ie. when they become like stereotypical politicians).

hmm, seeing as there's a family history of diabetes, maybe i shouldn't hv hot chocolate at night, cereal for breakfast, and chocolate croissant for lunch..

other diseases i just realised are in the family: liver dz, sickle cell anaemia.

the things u learn when family is around..

it's fine to be unhappy about something, but you still have to do it if it's important.
