There was a lil house in the middle of the woods…
A lil ol’ Bunny by the window stood…
Saw a hunter sneaking by…
So she ran outside, attacked the hunter, looked around to ensure no one was watching, and had a lovely stew for dinner. (It was a bit gamey.)
No? That wasn’t how that lil ditty went? Hmmmmm. I guess I just remember it differently. Lol.
Well, HI! My name is Bunny. You may remember me from posts such as “I WANT A BABY”, “Nerd Alert”, “MY ADDICTION HAS COST ME EVERYTHING!”, “Addicts How To: STITCH ME UP DOC!!…”, and then there was the best one ever… “Top 10 Things EA DOESN’T Want You To Know…” (still makes me giggle).
Those are just a handful of the insane words that spill out of my brain now and then. But wait…THERE’S MORE!!! (click if you dare enter the inner workings of a crazy Bunny’s mind).
OH…Holy Frak…YOU CLICKED MORE!!! What the heck is wrong with you? Don’t you know who I am? You don’t? Oh. Hmmmm. I guess I better fix that.
March 2013, a longtime friend was posting pics on his Facebook of a silly game he had been playing. (The boy was OBSESSED with the Simpsons.) It looked interesting to me, so I thought I would give it a go. So I downloaded the app to my Android phone and started to play. Not too bad. Kinda fun, but I was terribly busy at the time managing several chat rooms. So I stopped playing. ***GASP***
May 2013, my same friends was now posting things on his Facebook about “Whacking Day”. Mind you, seeing a boy post such words…I was a bit nervous at just what he was up to. Lol. He explained, it was the game again and he needed me to help him whack his snakes. Ummmmm. o.O
So short story long, I went back to TSTO and joined in the madness that was “Whacking Day”. (Just you wait…if it returns…you’ll understand…and crawl in a corner and cry.) As I hopped from town to town, I would write my name with the snake eggs to let my neighbor know I made the drop (thus began my 2D addiction).
While playing I got annoyed I knew so lil others playing, so I went online to seek out more friends. I found a really cool place with others like me. WOOHOO! There I met a Fuzzball aka Wookiee that was getting a kick out of my 2D art (I think it’s the Star Wars Geek Girl in me that spoke to the furball in him. In the palm of my hands, he was. 😉 )
I had wrote to those running the site when they put out an advert for writers and asked if I could write for them. I was turned down. Time passed and that site no longer was the fun place it had been. Luckily I had been in contact with the Fuzzball over on Flickr and was redirected to another community, tapped-out.co.uk (Ooooooh Brits! Yummy!)
There me and the Fuzzball continued to share our 2D art with others. I made a lot more new friends that I still adore and talk with to this day. New sites were starting to pop up now to help others with TSTO. Knowing some of them from the old one, I again offered to help write…and again…shot down. Just not what they were looking for. 🙁
At this time I figured I would give up writing and just keep making people giggle with my humor in my comments and with my 2D art. One day though, Wookiee was pulled by Alissa over to a new blog that was just starting up… tstoaddicts.com. Being my fellow furry buddy, he also put in a word for me with them. Next thing I know, I am getting an email from Alissa & Mark to join the Addicts Team. WOOHOOO!!! I was so happy. It was the day after my birthday in August and what an amazing gift they gave me. EEEEEEEEE!!! I learned right away how to frak files, pull dialog, pull images, and then some. It was great. Mark and Alissa took me right in and made me feel at home. (Lil did I know that home would be Alissa’s basement. Lol.) Mark then had to travel and was limited to just pulling images/GIFs for us, so Alissa…Wookiee…and Bunny joined together to make an Awesome support team. (Alissa and me ROCK frakkin files!!)
Another short story long…6 months have passed and I am having the time of my life here. I enjoy helping others, giving insight, and just driving everyone HOPPING mad. (I wonder if those other sites regret not taking me in. Lol) I have made some AMAZING friends here. Love getting locked in Alissa’s basement. Love tossing cheesey poofs into the back of Wookiee’s fur (where he can’t see them). Most of all I LOVE LOVE LOVE the response from readers here. (Even from you grumpy trolls **wink wink nudge nudge**.) I even play while traveling on flights. (Gotta stay on top of things when 30, 000+ feet in the air.)
Here is a lil shot of my “work area” with fellow Addict Team Member Alissa. And no, that is NOT all of our devices we use. Lol. (Fellow Addict Rollan D. over on TOuk made this meme from the pic we posted there.)
Now for a bit extra…(figured better follow Wookiee’s lead on these ones.)
Real Name: You mean it isn’t Bunny? Hmmmm…well…that is MY lil secret. Shhhhhh. I have to keep SOME things to myself still. Makes me all mysterious like. 😉
Favorite Simpsons Character: Shauna & Marge. Shauna for her badass tomboy tough chick attitude. Marge for how she manages to survive the Simpson family and still be an amazingly strong woman.
Favorite Episode: Hmmmm. This is like asking me to pick out my favorite ice cream flavor. There are just TOO many.
Favorite TSTO time of year: Halloween. I always have a blast around the spooky part of the year. I can actually get away with all my tricks. 😉
Favorite TSTO Character: Isn’t it obvious? Shauna. Soooo glad she was brought back into the game. (Just look at my new lil icon I drew. Look familiar?)
Favorite TSTO Building: Bad Dream House. Love the look of it. Helps that it is all spooky and Halloween-esque. (It also reminds me of one of the haunted houses I worked in as a teen.)
Favorite TSTO task: This one varies. So many to pick from. Wiggle Puppy, Tease the ducks, Get Revenge on Homer, Interrogate Squealer…just to name a few.
Brief synopsis of me: I have a deep love for music and the arts. I taught myself how to play piano and guitar (I don’t play very well anymore as I stopped, but thanks to SBE and the beautiful guitar for Christmas…I hope to start getting better again.)
I sang in a touring group in my teens. We won first quite a few times. (I’m an alto.) Love radio. Co-hosted on many a radio shows. Loved being on air. Met many artists, actors, and …well…celebs. (Made the Fuzzball jealous when I spent the morning with the ORIGINAL WOOKIEE, Peter Mayhew.)
I came from a HUGE family, but left home while still in my teens. Been kinda just me since they didn’t talk to me much more after that. Lost over 17 family and friends in a 2 year span. Made the alone feelings even more so. (No worries, I am surrounded by some pretty awesome people and friends now. 😉 ) The tomboy in me loves an adrenaline rush and playing hard. (Too many scars and hospital visits to name.) Though…shockingly…I am not good at any sports. (I tried…cross country, track, basketball, softball, and volleyball. I got by, but no Olympic athlete. Lol.) I love orchids. Such an amazingly beautiful flower with so many different colors and styles.
I LOVE to tell stories. Something I got from my late Father. I guess that kinda comes in handy with the writing. 🙂 I started writing a book when I was 9 years old. Had some interest in it, but never followed through. (I was quite young and didn’t know what possibilities I had.) I am a Geek/ Nerd/ Artist/ Creator/ Crafter/ Tomboy. Is that a mix of enough things?
Aspirations in Life: To just live, love, and laugh. Too much sadness has been in my life. Time for some happy to take over and grow. 🙂
Embarrassing Confession: I get REALLY nervous at times and just…talk. Like a LOT. Like I will not stop talking and start to just go on and on as well as I tend to say the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over. (Just ask poor Alissa.)
So that is essentially a bit about me. Enough to tie you over for now? NO??!!! Well too bad. Guess you will just have to stick around another 6 months and maybe I will tell you more. 😛
