Love is in the Air: Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, the annual celebration of love, and one of the busiest times of the year for flower and chocolate shops. In fact, according to the National Retail Federation, this year the average consumer will spend $126.03 to buy chocolates, champagne, jewelry and other gifts for family, friends, significant others and pets. If you’re still finalizing your plans and gifts, consider giving something that will express your feelings without hurting your wallet. Here are a few budget friendly ideas.

Stay in: There is a widespread belief that Valentine’s Day should be celebrated by going out to dinner. But don’t underestimate the romance of a dinner at home. You can have the food you want, relax and just enjoy each other’s company, rather than sharing your night with a room full of strangers.

Think simple: Sometimes the simplest gifts carry the most meaning. Maybe there’s a household chore that your loved one hates doing that you can take care of for them. Or think back to a memorable date, like your first, and recreate it; dates at the beginning of relationships are frequently much less expensive, but carry fond memories.

Be creative: A gift with thought is worth more than a gift with a large price tag. Think about your loved ones favorite things, or some of your favorite memories and expand on it. Maybe there’s an odd candy they love that you can buy in bulk. Or maybe there was a time the car broke down and you were stuck for hours—take this memory and set up a romantic dinner in the car saying how you wouldn’t want to break down with anyone else.

Remember, Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate your relationships with those you love, and should not be the cause of added stress, financial or otherwise. Take a breath, relax and remember that relationships are not determined by the amount of money spent, but by the happiness that is created.

I know it has been a bit…


And it was partly because I had surgery….then Halloween….then I’m not going to lie, I just got lazy.

So here is a post.  There are many wonderful, interesting, and inspirational posts online. Unfortunately, this is not one of them.

This is a link.

A link to a game.

A game that is fun.

Enjoy.

Organ Trail

I promise there will be a post-halloween….post.  Once I get around sorting photos of some awesome costumes.

Oh, and don’t forget, tomorrow is 11/11/11.  Make a wish at 11:11, but you had better make it a good and specific wish. We don’t want any shenanigans like in Bedazzled.

WTF is Bunny Venom Anyway?


This blog has been around for a few weeks now, and I figure some of you may be wondering about the name.   I went through many names.  Most of which were already used on other sites. I needed something unique, funny, and hopefully a bit nerdy.

So how/why “Bunny Venom”? 

This is Attila:

(If you want a “step & go” pet harness like what Attila wears in this photo, you can get them here:  http://adorableblinggiftsforpets.com/
I recommend it for any pet owner, Houdini couldn’t get out of that harness.)

Attila is my pet rabbit that I adopted from the local animal shelter earlier this year.  What can I say, those Sarah McLaughlin commercials really started to get to me…but I digress.

He may look cute and harmless, but that rodent has a viscous streak a mile wide!

Attila-the-Bun is a curious little bunny who prefers exploring and destroying to cuddling and being sociable.  While he does enjoy cheek scratches quite immensely, he would rather be chewing on something.  So much, that if you interrupt said destruction, he may give you a nasty little nip.   I do love my little “bunbun” though, despite his destructiveness.  Not so sure how he feels about me, though.

 Well, we’ll not risk another frontal assault. That rabbit’s dynamite. 

This is where the website name came from.  I couldn’t think of a title, then it hit me.  What if the bunny bit me (which he has….many times), then, like Spiderman, I gained some sort of super-powers from the bunny’s venom?  It seemed so ridiculous that it was cute, and amusing.  That in turn reminded me of some more super hero ridiculousness…Deadpool.  Hence the quote at the top of the page (taken from Marvel: Ultimate Alliance).   “Bunny Venom” seemed like something that would happen in a Deadpool-like comic.

Attila’s name was somewhat of an appropriate coincidence.  I named him Attila, just for the pun.  In an episode of Monty Python’s Flying Circus, they happen to use the pun (Attila the Bun!), and they also happen to mention Saint Attila in Holy Grail when they are about to use the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch against the killer rabbit.

Brother Maynard: Armaments, chapter two, verses nine through twenty-one.

Cleric: [reading] And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, “O Lord, bless this thy hand grenade, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy.” And the Lord did grin. And the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths, and carp and anchovies, and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit-bats and large chu…

Brother Maynard: Skip a bit, Brother…

Cleric: And the Lord spake, saying, “First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.

Brother Maynard: Amen.

Questions?

Well, Everyone Else Is Doing It


This video is making its rounds quite often lately.  I do feel the need to say that YES it is completely fictional.  For those who are convinced otherwise, look at the photo at the end…if the victim was truly unknown, how would they have gotten a photo of the person alive?

I must say, it is very thought-provoking.
