Have a bunny for your thoughts...

I didn't make the picture...pls don't sue me. STMTZ
So B! and I were walking into our apartment the other night, when I saw a creature on the sidewalk ahead. It was dark out and the only light source was behind the creature so it was a silhouette. (Simpler way of writing this "I saw the silhouet of a creature on the sidewalk"). I grabbed B! and said what is that, because she would die instantly in any scenario where noticing creatures was a needed skill (Simpler "because she doesn't notice dangers in her periphery (nvm not simpler)), before she could focus in on the threat it bounded out of our site. It was a rabbit and yes this is 100% exactly the first thing I thought of, not even my pet rabbit, poor turnip, no the first thing I thought was Bunny with Pancake on its head.
Maybe I should add that this photo greeted me every morning as it was hung in our kitchen. Why you ask? Because look at how damn adorable this picture is, and then maybe you too will print this out and hang it in your kitchen. Need to convince a roommate/gf well Pancakes are food, food=kitchen, it goes with the damn theme frame it and whala (some sort of fucking up of the french word "Voila meaning "There it is").
In Fact I'm going to go do that right now...before B! gets home, She'll LOVE IT!

Oh and just so you know if you spell silhouette, "silhouet" the first google image is this:
Again, NO SUING pls. STMTZ
Just thought you'de care to know that, and yes I use google search as spell check because I'm not french and therefore am oblivious to how their words are spelled even after they have been adapted to english.

Here's some Wikipedia etymology for you...The term silhouette derives from the name of Etienne de Silhouette, a French finance minister who, in 1759, was forced by France's credit crisis during the Seven Years War to impose severe economic demands upon the French people, particularly the wealthy.[2] Because de Silhouette was said to enjoy making cut paper portraits, his name became eponymous with these portraits and with anything done or made cheaply. (I'll leave the hyperlinks so you can research further if you wish)

I hope you understand this whole rant and side tracking was a Memento-esque attempt at a blog/joke.

Two last things if you want the etymology of the ending "esque" click it. Its hella complicated.
If you haven't seen Memento, well then your life is not yet complete, go watch it and then we'll work on some other things your missing.
In conclusion
