Vacque? Not somuch

I would love my Mom to take a nap. This has been an unbelievably stressful day so far. I am feeling so impatient at this moment. Woody, Mollie and Max are all asleep, and at least two of them slept in today. This morning, when I awoke at 8:30, I felt as if a truck […]

On Vacque (‘lfishmoorowr)

Unless you are fluent in cholegatroll, you will not understand above title, but this matters not. What matters is that I am formally on vacque, which means I can catch up on some of the work I have been behind on for months. And there is lots of new work. I am having a moment […]

Of bfb’s, the complexity of cartoon uploads, and product prototypes

Over the years, I have enjoyed collecting quite a variety of mugs and tote bags. Holiday gifts from cb: two mugs and a tote bag, from Zazzle, all imprinted with my bfb cartoons. One mug has the bfb thinking, “oh, no, I’m a BIG FAT BUNNYI!!!” The other mug has The Thanksgiving Growth Curve. The […]

Another Melan-choly Tale

I am not really melancholy now, but I had to name the post that for what will become obvious reasons. Before I begin, though, I must post a public update of my eating and weight status. As I mentioned, I did not weigh myself yesterday. But today I did force myself to get on the […]

A Christmas Confessional From The Biggest, Fattest Bunny Ever

The weight-conscious gentle readers who overindulged on Xmas should not feel alone. I was right there, chowing down with the best of you, maybe even better than the best. Today, one day post-Xmas, I waddled to my front steps and hesitated a moment before climbing them, because, you know, ambulation after a sudden (i.e., one […]

Tribute To St. cb, The Long-Suffering and Highly Deserving Husby Of The Somewhat Less Saintly tb

Cb is a saint, so from now on, after nearly 28 years of marriage and nearly 31 years of being together, I am going to try to express my appreciation in a single blogpost devoted entirely to him. It is time to give him some of the attention he deserves, and, believe me, what the […]

Can I Just Go To Sleep And Not Wake Up Till AFTER The Holidays?

Posted by Vicki on December 19th, 2011 under Attitude, Big FAT Bunnies, stress management
 •  No Comments

I am still not quite done with holiday preps. Holidays — what is the point? The thing that is good is I do get a bit of time off and do get to go to NY, and be with my fam a bit more. But everything leading up to that is so stressful that the […]

Kindred (Farm) Spirits By Worry-Wart

Every day of my life, the use of sertraline notwithstanding, I am wracked (imagine my surprise to learn that a secondary, yet nonetheless acceptable spelling of this word is “racked”) not so much with guilt, although there is that, but mostly with worry, worry, and more worry. Worry is a terrible burden. It can be […]

Undergoing Lagomorphosis

Posted by Vicki on December 10th, 2011 under Big FAT Bunnies, Bunnies
 •  No Comments

Bunnies are different from other creatures, esp other mammoos. Esp bfbs — these are the true lagomorphs. Within the past decade, new information has come to light about bunnies. The word “lagomorph” is actually a misnomer when referring to the garden-variety, wild-type and wild bunny, although the St. Bede bunny may be an exception. In […]

Already The Moo Rowr Kid

My ever so wonderfoo husby, cb, prepared dinner and not only kept it warm for me, but also — although he’d eaten by the time I got home so late — sat with me while I ravenously attended to the meal at the exclusion of all else, including him. He had roasted some fennel and […]
