quick notes
children of dune - leto 1
So I am feeling on the eastern edge of extremely weird. I'm just--tired. I mean, unutterably tired, and I can't figure out why, and the constant headache? Not. Helping. So if I owe you email or anything, I'm totally not ignoring you. I mean, I am, but for totally jenn-related reasons. I'll get to it, promise.

Quick update with two things:

Teacher's Pet 6 by lj user="svmadelyn"> - it's an *amazing* John pov that's just so *cool*. There's Max and Rodney and catfish dreams and math games, oh God, the cuteness never *ends*. So you know, run, don't walk to read. It's so John it's *adorable*.

*happy* Madelyn rocks.

Second: The rabbit has deigned to admit I exist and if I lay on my stomach very still, he will nuzzle my face. I have to admit something--i have owned many pets, but this is the first time I've had to work to understand body language just to be able to initiate a simple interaction. This is totally unlike a cat in the sheer work involved to understand him and what he does and does not want. It's--actually cool in a very high maintenance way. I just spend a lot of time watching him and cataloguing what he does, doesn't do, etc, to work out if he wants to play, wants to be left alone, wants to touch, when he's happy, angry, offended (very often).

I have no idea how I got to the point where I have rabbit psychology bookmarked. At least all he requires from me right now is lying still in his general vicinity, cause standing up has not been of hte fun the last two days. Maybe this is an iron issue. Hmm.

Awww. Reginald is worried about you!

It sounds like you and the bunny are becoming used to each other. That's good. I can say with our (late) bunnies that after we established that we weren't going to hurt and/or eat them they became very affectionate. Extremely opinionated (which was a surprise - who knew bunnies had such attitude?), but affectionate and much less easily spooked.

You sound like you're doing pretty good with the rabbit. Brother's rabbit is a holy terror who inflicts wounds on all who approach, so I'd say you're doing good, given my limited experience with the breed.

You're taming a shy woodland creature! Didya ever read The Little Prince (the chapter with the fox?) Once you tame him, he will be yours forever!

I tamed a feral cat and now he's practically glued to me every minute when I'm at home.

I'm glad "Dr. McKay-Rabbit" is settling in and letting you stay still while he nuzzles you *G*. He may be high maintenance, but look at it this way - he's fuzzy and soft and you can always use your frustrations/rabbit psychology in your writing *G*.

*pets Jenn and the cute little rabbit*
Madelyn rocks. Absolutely. *toasts*

Rabbits are awesome. I had ... hmm... nine? when I was growing up. They're very idiosyncratic, and they all have personalities. And some of them are smart as hell. Definitely capable of being affectionate and recognising "their" human once they get used to you.

But then, they can also be bitchy as hell. Like, pick things up and throw them at you bitchy.

Always fun, though.
