Smells like teen spirit

He's starting to get awfully big and gangly. His room is a mess: toys and bedding strewn all over. He eats constantly but never seems to put on weight. His attitude, quite frankly, is getting more than a little surly. When you hug him, you can almost hear him think, "Leave me alone, already!" And his, erm, odor is starting to get downright pungent.

It's official: he's turning into a teenager before our very eyes.

What's that?

Oh, no, not James! I was talking about Charcoal. Or "A.J. Soprano Bunny," as Tom has taken to calling him.

Fortunately, there is an easy remedy for teenage bunny hormonal overload. In about a week and a half, Charcoal will be making a trip to the vet for a little snip and tuck. I highly recommend that Tony and Carmela do the same.

Farklempt: (Yiddish) choked up; emotionally overwhelmed

The other day, I was farklempt when I received this in the mail:

It's a set of handmade stitch markers that read "Black Bunny Fibers." It came in a lovely envelope with an even lovelier card from the AmpuTeeHee. I have always been secretly envious when bloggers like Joe talk about the cool things their readers send them. I am envious no more! Instead, I am grateful and farklempt.

I would love to see pictures of the sullen teenage bunny. The stitch markers look great.

Heh, luckily I realized it was your bunny. If it was a human son, I'd recomend what my mom did for me: she left me a deodorant stick in my lunch bag. Given your remdey, I'll stick to the Speed Stick, thanks. lol

Galumpka, you have arrived.
Gifts from readers!
I have no doubt your accumulation will surpass QJoe's.
Perhaps not Franklin's, but then you're a blonde, so who knows.

When you have your first stalker, I'll know you've become a REVERED blogger.
Mwah. And lerve.

What a great thing...should I dye my hair blonde? Can Black Bunny Fibers help me with that?

Gawd...Kathy doesn't even like me second best...Franklin first, Carol second...gawd only knows where I fall on that list.

Ah, Jos, mon brave, mon beau galant, mon petit panais...
You know you are my first most favorite blogger.
I just say sweet things to the case they want to send me stuff.

Ahhh, teenage bunnyhood... the only advice I could offer is exactly what you're doing. Be strong.
LOVE the stitch markers- lucky girl.
The lace weight is knitting wonderfully- its just the freaking pattern adjusting that's the headache! But that dye-job is going to make it beauteous.

For a second there I thought you were talking about my son.
