Is it a sex blog? A mommy blog? A bitch & moan blog? Um, . . . yeah. This is my place to be totally honest. In my real life, I feel like I'm always lying to somebody about something. Here, I am totally honest. Brutally so. However, no matter what bad things I say about my kids, I adore them and would never ever really, say, sell them on Ebay. The husband, often referred to as Spousehole, is another story. Oh yeah - if you are under 18 (or if you are my husband), please leave now.

Look - it's another meme!

The beautiful and sexy Vixen tagged me for the latest meme making the rounds. Here goes!

1. What was I doing ten years ago?
Still practicing law, dating the future Spousehole (he moved into my house in July 1998), living in my first house with three cats, a dog, and two houserabbits.

2. What are five things on my list to do today?

  1. Clean the kitchen and pack up kitchen stuff I won't likely need before we move
  2. Try not to trip and fall anymore (I fell this morning and my left shoulder and elbow are very painful to use; I may even go to the urgent care center and try to get some muscle relaxants and/or pain relievers - remember, I am allergic to ibuprofen, which is probably what would really, really help)
  3. Laundry - you wouldn't believe how much laundry just my daughter can generate in a week. Add in mine and Boy's and you've got a mountain
  4. Go see Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skill (done! I skipped church so I could see the first matinee of the day which is only $4.00. I'm so cheap. I enjoyed it and Shia LeBeouf wasn't nearly as annoying as people say; favorite part: the Batman trailer they showed before the movie - OMG, I can't wait for it!!!!)
  5. Not kill anyone (always a difficult task)

3. Snacks I enjoy?

Oranges, ice cream, and Berry Blast (Sour!!!) Gushers. Those damn Gusher things are addictive. I only like the sour ones though.

4. Things I Would Do If I Were A Billionaire?

Buy my mother a new car so she can stop bitching about her old one (she drives a car she bought new in 1994 and has only put 60,000 miles on it so she doesn't want to replace it yet but she hates it; but then again, she'll find something to bitch about on the new car); set up educational and general trust funds for my children and my nephew; support my sister and nephew while she finishes her schooling; move to South Carolina immediately so my kids can be with their Dad again. Long term, I would set up a charitable foundation and running it would be my day job. I would support charities that help children and animals and fight to keep abortion safe and legal, but RARE by promoting easy access to and use of birth control; I would fund domestic violence shelters and organizations that provide legal assistance to abused spouses (of either gender) and children; I would provide funding to open more Justice for Our Neighbors clinics around the country; I would also have a separate organization to invest in and support entrepreneurship.

5. Three of my bad habits?

  1. Procrastination (same answer as Vixen, but so very true for me!)
  2. Eating the wrong foods
  3. Adultery

6. Five places I have lived?

  1. Small town on the Mississippi
  2. Small town in north central North Carolina
  3. Smallish town on Lake Michigan
  4. Small town on Lake Huron
  5. Deee-troit, a big city getting smaller all the time

7. Five jobs I’ve had?

  1. Frozen custard shop assistant manager (my parents owned the shop)
  2. Librarian in a specialized academic library at Michigan State (open only to grad students and professors)
  3. Dead poultry gutter (Wearing plastic gloves, I scooped the guts out of dead chickens and turkeys after they were plucked and had been through the centrifuge)
  4. Attorney
  5. Associate producer at a local television station

8. How did you name your blog?
I typed the letters into the box provided. Duh.

Oh, you mean how did I come up with the name? I've always been a little fixated on rabbits, real rabbits and realistic artistic representations of rabbits and my nickname for many years (as an adult, no less) was Bunny. Several years ago I was goofing around with a Brit friend of Spousehole's family, flirting wildly as I am wont to do, and he said "Well, you're just a randy little rabbit, aren't you?" The phrase stuck in my mind, so I made up the 'net moniker Randi Rabbit and since I sometimes feel my world is a strange place rather like Alice fell into, "Down the Rabbit Hole" just seemed fitting. (I wasn't even thinking of "The Matrix" when I chose the name, but that's kind of fitting too).

I’m supposed to tag 5-6 people now. I always have trouble deciding who to tag and usually find out subsequently that my taggees have already done the meme. I'll give it a shot anywhoo.

I like to just pretend the chickens and turkey's I've cooked gutted themselves, so I respect you did that for a job once! I had to reach in and grab gizzards once and wanted to gag. Hell, I *did* gag!

I need to start actually looking at my to do lists after I write them. Maybe that would get me off the couch today!

Vixen said...

...dead poultry gutter????

*stomach churns* I know I'm already a vegetarian, but that DEFINITELY would have turned me into one.

I think your blog title fits you perfectly. :)

Amorous Rocker said...

I've been waiting for the new Batman for the longest. It's pitiful but I'm such a Batman freak, lol.

Great answers! You make my laugh. =p I got tagged with this one too.

But hey, that small town on Lake Huron is the metropolitan center of northeast Michigan!

Just sayin'. . .

How does one housebreak a rabbit? Or do you just not bother?

Bunny said...

Rabbits will use a litter box, they take to it naturally. Rabbits don't like to pee where they live, so they pee in the box very readily. They still lose second time poops here and there, but they just vacuum right up.

Rabbits poop twice - the first poop is a soft poop that they eat and then redigest and the second poop is hard little balls that could be mistaken for peppercorns. Rabbits have a similar digestive system to cows, which regurgitate their cud, chew it, and send it back down for further digestion. Rabbits are incapable of regurgitation, so they expel theirs anally and then redigest it. Sounds gross, but it's just how they evolved (or how God designed them, if you prefer).

I didn't even think about it when I answered my tag, but yes--my bad habits are definitely the same as yours.

The Troll said...

Yuck on poultry gutter. I'm UP!

It took me a couple of days, but I finally completed the meme! Thanks for the tag! :)
