Bunnylumpus update: the seat is a tad taller now that it's mounted back on the original seat rails that came with the car. I can see over the dash now!

Also, all the decals are gone and Her Fluffiness is ready for some lilac paint. Due to a crappy situation involving a misunderstood due date, I'm still...here. On the couch at Harris Hill. Mooching interwebs. Rushing frantically to pull three papers out of my bum before 5 PM today. Eeek! If I get through pretty early, I may ask about getting some purple Puffalump-colored paint. (Sidenote: I'M FREEZING.)

Heh. During that time of year, that steep 21%? grade up the hill that goes from Tukwila/Southcenter to the airport is pure lulz. I distinctly remember a Jeep Cherokee making it a little bit up and then sliding right back down. Haha.

Yep, that's a good one, theres a few on Queen Anne that are that steep or steeper, some with bricks rather than paving. The worst part is that everybody will be on the freeway, it starts raining, people forget how slick it is and start crashing into each other.

Oh! I finally got done with two of the papers and decided that since I was either going to go crazy or develop a migraine if I kept staring at my laptop, it was time for a break.

Unfortunately, the hopping coil equiraptor mentioned was still out on the bunnywagen, so no could drive. I think Bo's working on that issue somehow. I couldn't convince anyone to fetch lilac paint while I was stuck working, either, so Fluffy is getting painted this weekend. So, I got to freeze David out in the Autobianchi, which was lulz. I think I scared him a bit with the body roll, but that thing is planted to the ground compared to Ye Olde Failtima. Still, bwahahahaha.

For the weekend:
1. Fetch pink and purple paint
2. Scrape off any remaining lumps, bumps, and sticker goo on Her Fluffiness to make it ready for paint.
3. Paint the bunny! :D

I don't have a final on the 11th, so if they're not too busy in Bunny's corner...?

That's a lovely lilac color. It'll stand out among all the loud/black/crappy paint jobs that are the norm in LeMons.

Heh, we actually took the Puffalump in with us to match the paint color.

Apparently Puffalump purple is "Purplicious." :)

It...looks......adorable! :wub:

I would pay considerable amounts of money to see the face of the guy at the paintshop when you told him you needed carpaint in *holds up puffalump* "this" colour :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Well, we were buying housepaint. Two women, around childbearing age, matching a stuffed animal in housepaint? Not odd at all. So the "match this" didn't get many odd looks. But "How much flat housepaint do you think we need to cover a VW fastback?"

what does it say on the trunk? The matte finish of housepaint makes it look fluffier.
And coco, how do you know about the hill in Tukwila? I've been meaning to ask.

Oh! I used to live in Fairwood/"unincorporated King County"/just outside Renton. I'll be mad if they ever incorporate into a city because being able to set off fireworks everywhere ruled.

The silver part across the back says "Volkswagen." I'd kind of like to find a couple rabbit emblems for each side, too. If anyone's got a spare, let me know.

I actually helped fix something on the Bunnywagen a while ago! (If the battery fails, erm...yeah.)

Bunnies! Everywhere! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!

We painted Her Fluffiness last weekend.

Behold! THE PURPLE!

http://pic.armedcats.net/n/ni/ninjacoco/2010/12/16/DSC00981a.JPG

It's a pretty, pretty lilac. :wub: Awwwwww.

I'm incredibly amused by how well this matches the bunny.

The Eater of Souls seems pleased, too. Mwahahahahahaa.

The wheels are "Pink Persuasion," IIRC. They match Fluffy's evil claw-bearing fists of doom cute wittle bunnywunny paws. <3

Well, Fonda ain't got a motor in the back of her Honda...

Bunny and a go-faster scoop.

I think the flat paint makes it look even Puffalumpier than I expected. Eeeeeexcellent.

I'm still shocked just how well it matches Fluffy Bunny. It's a bit...wow. Just wow.

Bunny! :D
