BUNNY BOOKS ARE HERE!

Hello World! BUNNY BOOKS HAVE ARRIVED! Thanks to all who have purchased books … am sending them through the mail as we speak!

On a related note, Sorry about the enormous hiatus… I am on bunny books vacation for a little while, due to having gotten a little bit busy with other aspects of life. Bunny Books follow-on stories will have to wait just a little bit longer :)

He Likes Me, He Likes Me Not.

If you chose to read this to find out if your fling is either hot or cold, chances are it’s probably cold.

Or it’s hot. I don’t know your life.

Or maybe you’re yes then you’re no and you’re in then you’re out and you’re up then you’re down. Okay, I’m dizzy now.

But I do know my own and have learned a few things along the way. Or at least I like to think I have. But I probably actually haven’t, so choose to listen to me at your own risk.  You’ve been warned.

So, I will pose some common scenarios that are often overanalyzed at girls’ brunch and then give my own verdict on the situation. I will be drawing from my own mostly embarrassing romantic past when weighing in. Again, you’ve been warned.

Scenario 1: You texted him. He didn’t answer. Ever.
Brunch Time Justifications That I Have Actually Heard: His phone was broken. He passed out at a party and his crazy ex girlfriend deleted his text messages. He didn’t have anything interesting to say and panicked.

The amount of trouble I went through to get that screenshot is ridiculous. “Hey friend that I changed to “Boy I Fancy” in my phonebook, don’t answer the text I’m about to send you, I need to screenshot it for a blog post.” Now that is dedication folks.

Verdict: Girl, as much as I hate to be the bearer of bad news, he likes you not. I don’t care if he is in the middle of the woods recreating burning man in a wild attempt to “find himself;” if he has cell reception and he likes you, he will find a way to text you back. Even if it’s by smoke signal. Hey, we’ve all been there. You send the text and then throw your phone across the room or hide it under a pillow. And then after the hours have passed with still no response, you send your BFF a text to “make sure your phone is working.” But, don’t let it get you down, there’s other fish in the sea who probably have a smartphone and iMessage is so much better.

Exception: His phone is broken. But, I doubt it.

Scenario 2: You Facebook chat him and he one words you until signing off without saying goodbye.
Brunch Time Justifications That I Have Actually Heard: He forgot to pay his wifi bill and his internet connection was turned off mid conversation. He fell asleep at the computer. He’s the “strong but quiet type.”

Homeboy goes hard while watching YouTube videos and reading College Humor articles.

Verdict: He probably likes you not. Contrary to what is sadly popular belief, if a guy is into you he will assist in perpetuating the conversation. It takes two to tango, or in this case Facebook chat. He will say more than “nothing” when you ask him what he did today. I mean you aren’t his mom asking the 8th grade version of him what he learned at school today.

Exception: He has nothing to say because he is boring. If that is the case run in the other direction. You need a stimulating conversation partner.

Scenario 3: You’ve hooked up with a guy a few times. He seems interested but is always busy when you try to make plans to hang out.
Brunch Time Justifications That I Have Actually Heard: He probably is busy! He’s too tired to hang out! You intimidate him!

Except he doesn’t. womp womp.

Verdict: This one is a little harder to judge. Because chances are if you’re hooking up with a productive member of society, he really is busy. However, I don’t care how busy he is. If he’s into you, he will make time for you. Even if it’s just for a quick coffee date in between working a 9-5, teaching inner city kids how to read and working on his painting of the city night skyline. Actually, if your boy matches that description, can you kindly send him my way ? But I digress. If he is always mysteriously busy, he may just be around for the benefits.

Exception: He really is too busy. But no one wants to get involved with a workaholic.

Sorry if any of this was too harsh. Just look at this picture of Ryan Gosling. I promise it will make you feel better. And drop the duds! No boy is worth that much analysis. You have more important things to worry about at brunch like will it be a mimosa or a bellini.

If you insist.

Happy 4th of July! Love, Go Bunny Books

4th of July Cele-bear-a-tion

______

The animals sat in the grass and watched the sky turn pink, orange, and bright blue.

“It’s so nice to have a holiday in the middle of the workweek!” said Bunny.

“But Bunny … you don’t have a job!” said Mr. Fox.

“Hmph,” said Bunny.

“Don’t worry … it’s a ‘cele-bear-a-tion’ for everyone!” said Bear.

“You’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” – Winnie the Pooh

Practical Advice – the job application portal

Hey job-hunters! Ok, we all know that filling out job applications online majorly sucks. Worst part by FAR are those annoying application portals which  were all clearly designed either by monkeys or by engineers that didn’t make the cut at Groupon.

Next time you’re faced with a crazy long application portal, copy and paste all the fields into a word document, and write your responses out there before transferring them back into the form. This is so you’ll preserve your responses for the next application and so that you’ll have your responses saved just in case the portal crashes (something that has happened to me more than I’d like to admit).

I also recommend having a glass of wine handy!

Thank you Hello Giggles!

Hey guys!

THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the Hello Giggles love. The BEST parts by far about being Item of the Day were reaching new people and receiving emails from all over the world! Apparently, job-hunting is stressful no matter what continent you are on :p

I really hope that “You Can Do It, Bunny” can help some of you find the motivation to keep moving forward with the hunt and also give you something to laugh about amidst all the stress. One of my favorite quotes is “Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.” (I have no idea where this quote came from – it was on one of my friends’ facebook profiles). Anyway, I really believe that it’s true!

All the best,

Tina
