Know Your Bunnies!
They have been multiplying like, well, bunnies. The
purpose of this list is for you and us to keep track of them.
A secret clan with forbidden handshakes. A tiny club
of co-conspirators, on a Quest for Net Fame. (They tried Gross Fame
but didn't have the stomach for it.)
Socrates (first RabidBunny) [close-up,
photo, as Ace]
His name makes sense in German. In a convoluted
Xanthippe (second RabidBunny) [close-up,
one bunny lead to two, two led to offspring...
And (child of Socrates & Xanthippe)
named because it always sits between its parents
Plato (most civilized of the Bunnies) [photo]
he wouldn't harm a fly, even if he knew how to
Valhalla (spotted in a barber shop)
she is a star and she knows it
Orpheus and Eurydike (we can barely tell them apart) [mugshot]
they're constantly at it
Cassandra (from childhood days) [photo]
she wears a dress, the prude
Pascal (adopted) [photo]
a green bear, honorary RabidBunny
TBFKAG (American) [close-up,
a.k.a. "Gund" even though that's the
Bean Bunny (a Muppet)
from the Disney/MGM Studios in Florida; even Valhalla's
They are not Bunnies, but they have turned affiliates
by association. Some of them have already been photographed or drawn;
others are impatiently waiting for their turn in the limelight.
Racoon & Mapache (two racoons)
they keep many childhood memories
Solatran (a cat)
named after a powerful tranquilizer pill; a.k.a.
"Trani" (Germans: please laugh now)
Eros (another cat) [photo]
rescued from a drugstore in Vienna, still grouchy
Missisippi (a Ms. Cat)
there are worse puns than this
Douglas (a mouse) [drawing]
also spelled "Daggeles"
Lancelot (a tiny mouse)
he's very courageous
Knuffel (a small icebear) [photo]
Knuffel means "cuddle" in German
Olav (a big, cuddly icebear) [photo]
a very, very playful bear
Pooshkin (a very cuddly teddy bear) [photo]
looking for honey in all the wrong places
Fortran (a teddy bear with a black t-shirt)
continuing the "tradition" of bears named
after programming languages
Ting (a brand new teddy bear sent to me from the US of A) [photo]
This teddy is very fluffy, very big and wears glasses.
Allegedly, it looks like MOATMAI.
I wish I knew how exactly the lot of them ended up
here. There was a dearth of bunnies one easter and suddenly the
house was filled with sheep.
Lois (female sheep)
in favor of open relationships, to some extent
Clark (male sheep) [photo1,
Lois' mate. We ran out of classical names for couples,
so we had to make do with what we had
Jesus (male sheep) [photo1,
very docile and well-behaved; the odd one out...
Helga (female sheep/backpack) [photo,
this is what happens to sheep who misbehave
Ludovico & Louise (two bonsai sheep)
they just arrived recently
Shaun (from Wallace & Grommit)
another bonafide movie star, not that anybody cares
Easter 1999, two, no, three new sheep have arrived in this
household: Robert, Clara and a baby sheep, Keiner.
They would be part of the sheep gang, except they
live elsewhere. Occasionally, all sheep meet and hold a conference.
Ludwig (male sheep) [drawing]
in Ray's custody
Wolf (male sheep)
silly name, silly sheep. Recently played "the
confusion game" with Alfred
Cassiopeia (female sheep)
she lives with Orpheus' cousin Hermes as well as
tigers and ducks
Alfred (male sheep) [photo]
this one lives with a psychologist and her mate
Agatha (female sheep)
she lives with a female lawyer and is Alfred's
girlfriend (or so I have been told)
