My New Book


I Just Bring It Out

I took this photo of Cinnamon during the interview last night. This is the stare down–she does this hoping that if she stares at me long enough, she will have willed me into giving her a treat.

Well, last night’s online show (The Rabbit Show) took a weird turn. I guess when you have an online show hosted on Talk Shoe, you can have a forum going where people can ask questions and it’s very interactive. And as happens in forums, someone joined and started asking…well let’s just say they were questions that Cinnamon would not approve of. The poor host seemed surprised and flustered. My inclination would have been to just giggle quietly and ingore it, but the host was trying to delete them, which I think just made the anonymous posters pose even worse questions. Then, there was an odd sound and I couldn’t hear the host. I figured I was on hold or the show was stopped because of the questions. Non Birding Bill was in the other room listening live and shouted, “Hey keeping talking–he’s not on, but I can hear you, fill the dead air.”

So, I kind of “umed” and “ahed” and “you knowed” my way into getting rabbits from humane societies, it was very strange. And fortunately, there were people asking questions that didn’t involve impossible rabbit mating processes (thank you to all those kind folks) and I was able to speak to those.

The host made it back on–he had a power surge from his house and got knocked off the show. An eventful interview to say the least. You can download a podcast version here. I guess I was the first author he had on his show–I hope the experience didn’t sour him on future guests on his show. Thanks, Dan, for having me on and for promoting the book.

After it was finished, NBB shook his head and said, “You just bring that out in people, don’t ya my little trouble maker.”

    I was part of last nights events and was a bit surprised at the turn it took. I guess I figured those sorts of pranksters would be attracted to something a little racier then domestic rabbits.

    Please let us know if you decide to give TalkShoe a try yourself. It might be interesting to have a virtual Birds & Beer that pulled people in from all around the world.

    It’s funny you mention a virtual Birds and Beers…I had the exact same thought during the podcast!

    I think we’ll see something soon.

    For a moment,m when I read about questions Cinnamon would not approve of, I thought they were asking you about rabbit stew recipes!
    She’d have been even more disapproving then! Thank goodness it was only sex.
