Roger, Peter, Eddie, Velveteen, Pat and Bugs, but probably not Playboy

I happened to see a reference to The Bunny Museum, so for various reasons and because of two people in particular, I had to find the link to see what it's about. Wow. Talk about a collection. I'm not sure I'd actually be interested in going. On the one hand, there is a fascination quality to it. On the other hand, I'm not sure it would be very nice to go through someone's home thinking what weirdos they are - besides, that's usually what happens when people come to OUR house!

A friend of a friend used to have a free-roaming bunny as a pet, so it's been a long time since I've played with one.

Hmmm, the Huntington Library is only four miles away, and having tea in the Tea Room has been on my list of things to do. But then, I don't think I should be dressed the same for visiting the Tea Room and the Bunny Museum, so that probably won't work. On their tourists page, they have a list of other things in the area to do, as well as a list of nearby restaurants. I'm going to assume that none of those restaurants serve rabbit.

OK, so after I wrote the above, I thought about someone I sort of "know" from a Disney discussion board I used to participate in. He and his wife and daughter have a website detailing, among other things, their visits to various museums. I figured, hey, I'll tell him about this place. He used to live in the Southern California area but moved up north-ish (or maybe it's central California) a few years ago. They come back down periodically, so they could maybe think about visiting then. And then I went to their website. And I noticed that a trip to the Bunny Museum had already been posted. And then I felt like an idiot because I forgot that they used to live in PASADENA, where the Bunny Museum is located. Duh. Anyway, here's their report from their 2003 trip. After reading that, I'm thinking maybe my first instinct was correct about not going.

That is one of the most frightening things I've ever seen. In the article they mention they "freeze dried their bunny pets". I certainly hope they were dead when they did that! This is one museum I don't think I'll be visiting anytime soon. It's just a little too bunny creepy for me and I like both bunnies and creepy.
