Ignorance is Sis

  Enlightenment is futile – you will be assimilated. Hollywood is making us stupid. I realized this while watching The Legend of Tarzan, a fun movie, if you’re into excessive CGI animals, but one that left me gaping at the creator’s blatant ignorance about Africa, wild animals, and local culture. That annoys me. I mean, […]

Let’s take it back to the (safe) beach

 Whenever I think of the beach I think of blissful childhood holidays with my family in Sedgefield, running and swimming for hours, care-free.  Just sand, salty water, sun and the wonderfulness of it all encapsulated in the smell of coconut sunscreen forever afterwards. But the beach by myself these days is quite different. When packing […]

I Never Said That

  In Cold Comfort Farm, by Stella Gibbons, Aunt Ada Doom claims to have seen ‘something nasty in the woodshed’. Now, the book never reveals what the ‘something nasty’ was, but I’m strongly inclined to believe that it was a nefarious collector of quotes with a penchant for misattribution. I picture a wall sporting pictures […]

Ou tjor

I go for monthly writing classes with Cathy Eden.  It’s like AA for writer’s so it’s more of a support group than a how-to-get-published class.  They are a life-line for me.  It just feels better to struggle with others than to struggle by myself although of course the irony is that it then stops being […]

Spoonerisms and Other Cutlery

    Let’s start with the spoon in the room. You and I both know I’m only writing this post because I happened to have this photograph in my collection. I’m a sucker for a good pun. What is a Spoonerism Anyway? It’s one of those things that happens when your brain is working faster […]

Giving Consequence the Eyeball

One day on my regular commute by bicycle, heading home after work, I stopped at a robot (traffic light) and waited for green. Are you still with me?  I promise this isn’t about road rage or the equal rights of those that commute by bicycle. I can’t remember now whether I moved off early without […]

About the Other

I’m Kerrythe.  The other Survivor Bunny.  Like Erin said, surviving is definitely present continuous and I have found writing to be that very subtly supportive rock of a friend throughout my life, helping me to be more aware of, accept and let go of things that weren’t working. So that’s why I love writing. However, […]

About Erin

My name is Erin and I am a Survivor Bunny. Well, perhaps it would be more accurate to say surviving bunny, but that doesn’t sound quite as cool as a blog name. Gives the impression that all the other bunnies died. Which would be sad and a bum way to start a blog. What I’m […]

About This

Before we were teenagers we started a Barbie Club and named it some long silly name we can’t remember like “Rollerblading Magic Rainbow Hair Sparkle Fruity Fairydust Club”.  Acronym RMRHSFFC.  Totally immemorable and impractical.  But it was special to us.  It made us feel like we had our own “thing”.  A top secret world of […]
