  10. Martha in Washington says:

  13. 260Oakley says:

    I hope she doesn’t get a bee in her bunnet!

  14. janet2buns says:

    Bunneh is decked out in her light coloured spring fur, which is appropriate for all social events. Her hat coordinates very fetchingly for a pulled-together effect. Bravo, Bunneh!

  15. A snack AND a spring-time hat all in one! Now, *that’s* a winner!

  16. Just discovered all the cuteness fit to print today…..Thank you!

  17. Queen of Dork says:

    Where is my over-the-internet boyfriend, Hon Glad? :(

  18. That is one very cute, very big bunny, though not as big as this one! (His owner really should have named him “Harvey.”)

  19. @QoD, I’m sure he is all right. Yo, Hon Glad, you lurking about?

  20. Queen of Dork says:

    Theresa: I hope he’s okay.

  21. Mew mew mew I has a cute says:

    Awwwww! I’m from KY and this made my day ^-^ ykwim

  22. chanpon says:

    Oh, hat needs to be much much bigger dahling, to fit in with the Derby crowd. Good try though.

  23. Katrina says:

    Great photo-want the bun-bun.

  24. Hmmmm; just found out that the Bunneh IS the Hat, with the brim being the gray carpet-looking base he’s sitting on: the nice lady, who is attached to the blue sleeve,
    wore him all day; ( the photog got a pik when she removed him for a potty break
    and a lunch of delishus disapproving-bunney-type greens…….!!) :wink:

  25. Not just a fluffy bun but a stylish one too

  26. Am I the only one who saw this and went *gasp gasp* TOTORO!!! SQUEE!!! *gasp*???

  27. BunnehLover4eva says:

    awwww so cute!! LOOKS LIKE MY BUNNEH

  28. Hon Glad says:

    Hello my darling girls, nice of you to think of me. The humour on this post is much improved, and pleasingly helps negate much of my previous post on th Cappy’s.

    Bun hat looks like a Phillip Treachy creation to me, I pass his shop frequently on my way to Harrods (did you notice two name drops in one sentence) Anyhoo I must away for a whle as I am in the middle of repotting a contorta hazle tree. Byee.

  29. “There is a leaf on this bunny’s head. Your argument is invalid.”

  30. Ah, Hon Glad, swanning around Knightsbridge again.

  31. Do you think she’d disapprove of me if I beeped her nose?

  32. Queen of Dork says:

    Hon Glad and Theresa: I recently read a book about the British Royal Family. The Castle of the Queen was mentioned (crap! I can’t think of the name of that castle right now) and I was so curious to see what it looked like that I Googled it. It’s this fabulous castle which Prince William could see from his school and he referred to it as “granny’s house.” Gosh. Some house. William said a magnificent epitome of an understatement that I read in this book. Between high school and college, he went to work in this little village in Brazil. (I think it was Brazil?). He lived in a hut and he slept on a dirt floor. He so Britishly said something like, The living conditions are not exactly what I’m used to. Or something like that! He wasn’t complaining or anything when he said that…he was just sort of commenting on what was going on in his life. Anyway, it was quite an understatement!

  33. Hon Glad says:

    Quod erat Demonstrandum – Queen of Dork – I don’t know if you are familiar with Sue Townsend’s writting The Adrian Mole Diaries and also a book The Queen and I.
    Without going to find it on my bookshelves,the plot of The Queen and I, is that there is a revolution and the Royal family is packed off to a council Estate. The Queen just gets on with things, The Queen Mum makes friends with Mrs Patel, The Duke of Edinburgh walks around grumbling to himself and Charlie gets all earnest and tries to commune with the peasants.
    Another example of British sang- froid; is when British ex Public School boys return from having been held, in say, Beruit, where they have been blindfolded and chained and told they are going to be killed. This and worse goes on for several years. When they are finally released and the press ask them how they coped, they often say “Well it wasn’t as bad as Public School”. i.e Public School means a private
    school.

  34. Hon Glad says:

    Theresa – Are you British or an Anglophile.

  35. Queen of Dork says:

    Hon Glad: No. I';ve never read that book but now I want to! Gosh. Sounds so interesting. Have you ever heard of this book called, The Treasure Hunters? I read this book when I was a kid. It’s about a family of British children who are seeking treasure in their family home. It’s such an awesome story but I can’t find it anywhere. I want to read it again. Also, there’s another book called something like The Happy House or something like that. It’s also about kids, kind of like The Bobbsey Twins. Anyhoo, if ever you come across The Treasure Hunters, will you please let me know?

  36. Queen of Dork says:

    Hon Glad: Also, as you are my cyber boyfriend, SMOOOOOCH!

  37. Aliesha says:

    She is SO cute!

  38. Hon Glad says:

    Queenie – I think it may be a E.Nesbit story.

    Goil friend, No tongues.

    Hactually it is E. Nesbit. I’ve just Googled it.

  39. O NO (he/she/or it) DI'UNT!!!!! says:

    @ QoD;

    from the Mature Adult Files:

    ‘but whut about meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee????”
    *silly winky-winky*

    JK & stuff

  41. Queen of Dork says:

    Hon Glad! You found it?! Off I go to Google. Oh my goodness gracious. (heart is aflutter)

  42. Hon Glad says:

    ONO – Yes, is that a reference to the last word spoken in Bernstein’s Candide.
    This last scene is musically my favourite part. I have an idea how I would like to stage it, in the piazza, at Covent Garden. It would be the part of the piazza where all the buskers perform, in front of the actors church (St Pauls), I think.

  43. Queen of Dork says:

    Hon Glad, I’m not seeing it. Can you post the link please? Pretty please? With all kinds of sugar and other nice delicious things on top? Sorry everybody. Please excuse me.

  44. Hon Glad says:

    Sorry, me old China, I’m pretty computer illiterate. E. Nesbit was an Edwardian writer of childrens books. I read quite a few of them as a child.Born on 19th August 1858.She and her husband were part of the Fabian society. Her most famous book is the Railway Chidren. the site is :- spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk ()()()()()()()()()()()()

  45. Queen of Dork says:

    Hon Glad: I found it, sweetie! Thank you for your help. I would give you my phone number if the thought of putting it on the internet wasn’t so horrifying. 8O

  46. Queen of Dork says:

    And what interesting history on Edith. I’m off to Google…

  47. @Hon Glad, neither, really, just had a lot of dealings . . .

  48. Hon Glad says:

    Theresa – Dealings……… With what, The British fashion industry, Mahommed Al
    Fahid, Princess of Wales, Ascot races, Milinery,Transport for London, the British class system……?

  49. O NO (he/she/or it) DI'UNT!!!!! says:

    @ Queen:

    1) HI AGAIN!!

    2) in re HG and ability to share los numeros de telephone….

    remember that (silly name, ‘course) CuteTalk is where you & I safely exchanged some direct email & etc details (eg phone #’s)…temporarily until we both located ea. other. Does that make sense? Not certian whether that will be a difficult connection for HG..but if I managed to get in it w/o harm,
    ANYBODY….should be able!!!

    Peace to All and to All a goodnight (or monring or midday or ???oh. sorry (blush))

  56. Hon Glad says:

    The above was me checking Cuteotime the time zone we post in.

    ONO Dahlink, I did so asker vous ein quevstion.
    Like, so you like, said like, any questions, which is whut I arsked.
    The finale of Bernstien’s Candide has a fantastic Chorus
    “We’ll Make Our Garden Grow”, Voltaire asks “Any Questions”?
    followed by the final crescendo, Drums Brass Strings several Harps Cymbals
    a good old crash bang wallop ending.

  57. bookmonstercats says:

    QoD, Her Madge (as we serfs affectionately refer to the Queen when not tugging our forelocks) has lots and lots of castles. I think “Granny’s Castle” must be Windsor Castle, which William would have been able to see from Eton College.

  58. Mousey says:

    Sidney, I am amazed more people didn’t think of him!
    I’m thinking maybe they don’t know Totoro… but this is cuteoverload… that seems rather impossible.
