This week, quite by accident, I fell down a job search rabbit hole that took me to strange lands and unfamiliar parking lots.


Alas, I did not become entombed at the local Sphinx. But in an introductory exercise, I did learn about the pet rabbit that grew to be the size of a dog.

Since I naturally assume all dogs are chihuahua sized, this interesting bit of trivia failed to impress.

Until I realised what it really meant.

Meet the Flemish Giant Rabbit:


The whole thing had me questioning my previously held beliefs about the nature of life and the universe! Who was I, where was I and what would become of me?

Anyway, I guess what I’m saying is, it’s been a crazy kind of week, so I am sorry if you haven’t seen me around much. That certainly was not the plan.

But it’s all good, and now that I’ve popped my head up out of that surreal wonderland, I remember what I was supposed to be doing.

Hello Pepi key rings!


Ms last night performed a community service by pulling names (not ears) out of a fancy hat kitchen bowl.

I put in some extras for those who read, followed, commented AND shared, but all of you have made the Hello Pepi launch so much more of a success than I imagined – so yay!

Pepi and Maxi are now out in the wild, getting up to all kinds of mischief, which is just as it should be.

So, woofs and drum rolls please, the WINNERS are…


Vincent Mars, the one and only Boy with a Hat.

Rita Azar, the lovely Crafty Expat.

Susie Lindau, the Wild Rider.

Maria, the strong and mighty Brickhouse Chick.

Em, the gentle soul behind Words.pics.

I will be in touch with you to ascertain your mailing addresses, and just as soon as I get my act together, you can expect a Pepi (as opposed to a giant rabbit) sized package in the mail!

Thanks everyone who supported Pepi on his way to a new home. You’re all better than the best.

Have you seen or heard anything strange this week?


Hello Pepi (Book 1) is FREE until Monday.

Grab it while you can!

    I am so far down the rabbit hole and haven’t been around. I have much to catch up on including Pepi. Not much computer access where I’m at (family trip). Congrats to all the supporters out there.

    WOOHOO!!! I held my breath and hoped to see my name! Thank you!!!!!!!
    I’ve been down that same rabbit hole. I’m still up to my eyeballs in edits! It’s hard to balance everything!

    That…is a gigantic rabbit…

    I saw a picture of an impossibly big hole they found in Siberia and the people at work are weird..but I see them all the time, so I don’t know if that counts or not.

      Haha… oh, but work is a hot bed of weird and wonderful. That totally counts 🙂 (Actually, I thought you meant the people at work in the big hole in Siberia were weird, so we could just about take this anywhere…!)

    Hello Pepi!!!! Come to mama brickhouse! I’ll take good care of you. The rabbit is cute but you are much cuter. I am jumping up and down right now I am so excited to have won a Pepi key chain. Yipee! I was going to take advantage of the kindle special but I would like to get the actual books so I can read them to my niece. I’ll be ordering those! 🙂

      Thanks Kath. Productive, yes, though I’m still in and out of the rabbit hole! Some sunshine… what I wouldn’t give to see a bit of that! It’s definitely the winter freeze down here…

Tell me about it...
