IVP - Strangely Dim - Snow Bunnies

Snow Bunnies

Well, it's the first of the month again, which means it's time to play everybody's favorite viral adventure game, "Rabbit"! This month's contest takes place against a backdrop of a freshly fallen, silent shroud of snow--twelve inches in some Chicago neighborhoods. Nevertheless, plenty of people soldiered on and played the game to great effect.

Kudos first to Pete, who left his mark at the Rabbit Uber Alles group on Facebook. Feel free to join us there for all things bunnilicious.

Most creative are the Hsus, who started planning their attack last night by digging all the stuffed rabbits out of their toy chests. Al came in early this morning to the InterVarsity Press offices, as is typical for him, and left rabbits on several desks, proving you don't even have to say it to play it.

And then there's Dan, the overachiever, who attacked on multiple fronts--among them a message on Facebook and an e-mail and (most likely) another e-mail to an address I haven't checked yet and phone calls to my cell and my home phone and my office.

I used to be good at this game, but today I'm afraid that I'm only good at drinking coffee and muttering about the weather. But in any event, congratulations to all the winners.

In other news, happy birthday to friends of Likewise Anthony Smith and Matt Conner. Keep the candles on the cake lit, my friends: it's cold outside.
