Elliot, and a vision in mango splendor

So, the bunny is cute.  I guess.

Girlfriend named it Elliot, even though we don’t know if it’s a girl or a boy yet, so I WIN and thank god because calling the vet to make an appointment for Sparkle Sparkle Butterfly Sparkle would have made me sound like a total jackass.

I don’t know if Elliot is going to be a permanent member of the family yet, but I have to tell you guys it’s awfully cute to see him scamper around the house, playing with the kid’s toys and hiding under Girlfriend’s blocks.  She seems to have litter box trained herself and doesn’t poop all over my house.  He does, however, shit in Alice’s bed.  I have to figure out a way to convince him that that’s not such a good idea because Alice is still unconvinced that the bunny isn’t food.  I can’t say I blame Alice for being a little annoyed with Elliot.  I almost never enjoy people who shit in my bed.

So that’s my update on the bunny situation for you.  I have to go hose Homeslice off now.  She’s painted herself in mango.

  1. Had Homeslice/Taco been a boy, his name would have been Elliot. I’m so excited to get to use the name because having another baby just so we could name it Elliot seems extreme.

  2. I know a girl named Elliot. Granted it’s her mom’s maiden name (it’s a Southern thing to name a child with the mom’s maiden name but there was no way mine would work), but still, it’s pretty adorable on a girl. So you should just rename HS/Taco/Lucy Elliot and call it a day. Or just add it as her second first name and call her Lucy Elliot.

  3. Hee hee! We have a orange tabby (female) named Elliot! 🙂 My husband named her after Elliot from Scrubs (also female). I usually call her Ellie Boo while he calls her Smelliot. 🙂

  4. We have debated having another baby so we could use the girl name we didn;t get to but like you decided that was a little extreme. I am still not quite a bunny person though my kids would love nothing more. Maybe we’ll get a puppy and use the name. Congrats on settling the name game.

  5. Big Pussy has yet to really notice Elliot. He spent about a day hanging around the cage and then lost interest. He’s more of a mouse kind of guy, turns out.
