I've always wanted to blog but have never felt inspired to do it until today. Some years ago, my friend Pamela noted that the dust bunnies under my bed were achieving a certain state of embodiedness. She wisely suggested that, rather than succumbing to this senseless need for cleanliness that has been sweeping the planet, I should leave the dust and see if entropy would eventually form them into real bunnies. I eagerly agreed to this but sadly, we had to move and when we moved the bed, our experiment in entropy was ended. Today I discovered that according to the latest theories on the formation of the universe, if I could just have waited a few million years more I might have had a whole new universe under my bed. All I can say, as I move into my new apartment is: "Let the research continue."


  1. Marjory; I can't help noticing a possible synergy (or maybe just wild semi-coincidence) here -- but the theme is 'bunnies'. I've been reading a book called "The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocolypse" ($2 -- bent remainder bins everywhere) in which those laudable (edible?) creatures become evil footsoldiers for a megalomaniac villain. And wasn't there a punk band called the Chocolate Bunnies from Hell? The shock value is of a benign chocolate bunny turning bad (and I don't mean surface bloom). I'm interested in your sub-futon experiment, partly because your dust bunnies, in a few eons, have equal potential to evolve, not just into animate objects, but into good or bad ones...
