Devilbunny and writing implements: a still life.

Yes, my handmade vampire coffin journal arrived today. It is gorgeous. I have no idea what I will write in it, but it's a beautiful thing and it makes me happy.
Clovis says thank you for the birthday wishes. Today was also a big day for Clovis; I had promised him that when I got a new job, he would get a new bow tie. (Clovis is something of a dandy.) So today, we went to Nancy's Sewing Basket to visit the Ribbon Room and browse antique ribbons.


The Stroppy One indulging Clovis' demands to be allowed to drive.


Clovis selecting the new ribbon.

Tonight, I make the new bow tie from it.

Oh, and [profile] linneakou, you asked about didn't Clovis have his very own LJ? Yes, he does, but he hasn't felt like updating it in ages. [personal profile] prettyshrub asked if I'd ever explained where Clovis got his name from: he's named for a very sarcastic young dandy from the stories of Saki (H. H. Munro). This is a handy clicky-link to Project Gutenberg for the Chronicles of Clovis collection, if you want to read the stories. (And you really should, because they're delightfully acerbic and witty.)

22 years ago, on Easter Sunday, a Very Important Person entered my life.



Happy birthday to Clovis Devilbunny!

I have been saying for YEARS that *I* deserved to get a fainting couch or chaise lounge before Clovis. YEARS. The depths of my coveting for a gorgeous fainting couch cannot be measured!



Yeah. Alexia just made Clovis very, very smug.

After a day of fighting with un- and re-installing tools for the dayjob (oh G-d, the depths of my loathing for SQL installation cannot be adequately expressed with mere words, there are hand gestures and eye rolling involved), I tried to work on writing. Yeah, not so much. So I altered a jacket, and then performed the Ceremony Of Fangs on two of [livejournal.com profile] clovisdvlbunny's clone minions.



Morvis is on the left, Dreivis is on the right. Clovis looks rather smug, doesn't he?

Wait, didn't we have a similar question recently? Anyway, people who know me know my answer to this.



That is the Gunderson clan. See the bear in the middle? That would be Gunderson (with his siblings Augustuson and Minderson), who is my oldest bear. He arrived in my life the Christmas I was 9, and he went with me everywhere. He now (mostly) hangs out in the armchair lair of bears, with ....



The Murphy clan! (I don't have a recent photo showing the other two members, must fix that.) Murphybear is in the middle (with Thirby on the right and Dearby on the left), and he became part of the family on Christmas day when I was 11.

And then, of course:



[livejournal.com profile] clovisdvlbunny. Er, holding the head of Sauron in this picture. Clovis turned 21 this year. Clovis was the ring bearer for mine & the Stroppy One's wedding. Clovis sleeps above my head every night. Clovis has yet to give me bad advice (and believe me, he is not shy about giving me advice.)

I am the perfect target audience for the Toy Story movies, and "Jessie's Song" turns me into a sobbing wreck every time.

EDIT: Here, a story that explains my relationship to my fuzzy companions. Long ago, I was dating a not-very-good guy. Misogynistic, emotionally abusive at times, controlling, tried to isolate me from my friends, the works. One of the main things that finally made me realize that I needed to break up with him? When he informed me that when we moved in together, I was going to "get rid of the stupid stuffed animals".

Whereas the Stroppy One, when we were planning the wedding, said "I assume Clovis is our ring bearer?"

Happy birthday to Clovis Devilbunny!

It didn't really have a name, because when you're a kid, it's just playing. Maybe other people called it "Let's Pretend" or "She's so ... creative ...?", but to me, it was just what I did. It was practice at plotting and ordering my army of stuffed animals around, because I fully intended to be the vampire witch queen of the universe when I grew up.

I still intend to do that, actually. [livejournal.com profile] clovisdvlbunny is all for this plan.
[Error: unknown template qotd]

Hello, have you people MET me? Gunderson Bear is sitting in the Armchair Lair at this very moment, with Murphy Bear. (Both Gunderson and Murphy now have siblings, because the local thrift stores have been randomly manifesting the proper sort of vintage GUND bears for a couple of years.)

Also, look at the icon on this entry. That is [livejournal.com profile] clovisdvlbunny. Clovis is going to rule the universe one day, so sign up to be a minion now, just to be safe. Clovis was the ringbearer at mine & the Stroppy One's wedding. Clovis is one of my sanity checks.

(Yes, I take advice from a stuffed bunny with fangs. He has never steered me wrong.)

"Clovis never had any plans that involved an army of penguins with explosives."

"Clovis hasn't been chased by Batman, either."


(Yes, the Tim Burton Batman Returns is on in the background. Clovis = better super villain than The Penguin! Become a Devilbunny Minion today!)

I'm doing my best to ignore the news right now, because incoherent rage and sorrow don't help me with making my (self-imposed) word count.

Instead, have a photo: Teatime with [livejournal.com profile] clovisdvlbunny, while we review story notes.

About to start writing in 2011. Clovis helps. Writing in 2011. Clovis helps.



I hope everyone had a good night last night! Now, back to the writing, yay!
[livejournal.com profile] clovisdvlbunny is helping me go through [livejournal.com profile] minim_calibre's notes. Never argue with the Devilbunny editor. (Unless he says "needs more death-rays!". Why? Because they don't work with that part of the storyline, Clovis. No, they don't.)



A Devilbunny has many skills! A Devilbunny has many skills!

Really. TRUST US WITH SHARP THINGS, FIRE, AND CANDY. We are completely safe. Look at our happy faces!




Eviscerating the hapless pumpkin.



[livejournal.com profile] clovisdvlbunny, looming over the candy. Maybe he'll share.

Good things about today:

- I discovered that the Blackbird Candy Shoppe has been absorbed into the Fieldhouse branch of Blackbird, and they do indeed still stock the Rococo Rose and Rococo Violet chocolate bars.

- I tried absinthe black salt caramels, and good heavens, are they tasty.

- I went to a birthday party for a lovely three year old girl, and got to play in a room full of bouncy castles. Giant bouncy castle slide! BOUNCY CASTLES. This may come as a surprise to some of you, but I love bouncy castles. LOVE.

- I have realized that I have the perfect velvet jacket and narrow pink ruffled trim to create a version of the jacket that [livejournal.com profile] zombieplaything drew me wearing.

- At the thrift store, I discovered a hardback book titled The Clovis Incident. Yes, I purchased it. I have no idea what it is about, and don't really care.

Wheee! I hope the coming week is as good as today.

But [livejournal.com profile] spectralbovine is a darling, and made sure that I got a Hellboy Skelanimal!

Of course, by "I", I guess I mean [livejournal.com profile] clovisdvlbunny, because he informed me that "fuzzy hellboy new evil bunny alliance enforcer!" I don't argue with Clovis about these sorts of things. Because arguing with an evil overlord to-be that sleeps above your head every night seems like a BAD IDEA.

Happy Easter and Happy Passover for those who celebrate!

Happy (oh my God this can't be right) 20th birthday to [livejournal.com profile] clovisdvlbunny, the cutest fuzzy evil overlord of them all.






(Yes, Clovis' birthday does not have a set date, but is celebrated on Easter. That's when he appeared in my life.)

Miss Monster is wonderful. I've admired her work for years and years, and we've known of each other in a "Hey, you know all of my friends!" sort of way. She very kindly sent me an
Uncle Dapper the Victorian Gentleman Monster toy!
(clicky-link!)

[livejournal.com profile] clovisdvlbunny, of course, swears that Uncle Dapper is his long-awaited butler. I'm not going to argue with Clovis on this, because he HAS been very patient (well, as patient as a Devilbunny can be) about waiting for a butler of his very own.

Posted via LiveJournal.app.

Because that means there is no video of me dancing around with [livejournal.com profile] clovisdvlbunny to the tune of MCR's cover of "Astro Zombies". Because, um, we kind of do that when that song pops up on the iPod.
