"SORRY ABOUT THE BUNNY-FOOT GUARD THINGIES," said the big blue floating space bunny. "I REALLY SHOULD GET MY ALARM SYSTEM UPDATED... IT PLAYS MERRY HELL WITH MY JOINTS, HAVING TO SPLIT MYSELF INTO PIECES EVERY TIME I GET UNWELCOME VISITORS!"
"But that's just the point!" Tracy yelled back. "I'm not unwelcome! I"m supposed to be here! I've felt like a Blue Happy Bunny all my life - a BHB, just like it says on your stupid elevator door downstairs!"
"YEAH, I KNOW," said the big blue bunnyrabbit, laughing heartily in the way that only a Truly Happy Blue Bunny could laugh. "THE THING IS, I TRY TO KEEP MOST PEOPLE AWAY BECAUSE, TO BE PERFECTLY HONEST, THEY JUST DON'T GET IT! GIVE THEM HALF A CHANCE AND THEY'LL SCORE POINTS OFF PEOPLE, THEY'LL BOOST THEMSELVES AT OTHER PEOPLE'S EXPENSE, THEY'LL SNEER...
"BUT YOU, TRACY... OH, WOW...
"YOU GIVE... YOU GIVE... OH, THE HECK WITH THIS..."
And suddenly, to the evident surprise of all the watching stars and planets, the booming blue rabbit voice softened to what was clearly a very, very uncharacteristic whisper.
"The thing is," continued the Blue Happy Bunny, its delicate voice echoing into little tufts of misty heartbreak across this strange tower-top Universe, "the world is full of people who have lost faith, who have lost bits of their souls... who don't remember how long and fluffy their ears are, because they have spent so long sharpening their claws...
"And then there are people like you... people who will decide to make friends in the blink of an eye... people who instinctively seem to know when, and what, and how much to give of themselves, without having to stop and weigh the prices up beforehand...
"If THAT isn't a Blue Happy Bunny, then I sure as hell don't know what is!"
Peanut stared aghast at the big blue alien rabbit.
"WHAT?" it snapped. "SO YOU HEARD A BUNNYRABBIT SAY 'HELL'... SO WHAT? I DO BELIEVE YOUR MOTHER ALREADY COVERED THIS TERRITORY IN THE ELEVATOR!"
"Worth a try," shrugged Peanut. "How often do you get the chance to embarrass a big blue cheery alien bunnyrabbit?"

And that's how Tracy the Blue Happy Bunny learned her destiny.
As for the big blue space bunny, he's gone back to his home in the unfeasibly cheerful Outer Cosmos. So if you go to that tower in Liverpool, you'll probably just find a radio station, or a revolving restaurant, depending on what mood Liverpool City Council is in at the time.

Things I could easily get addicted to:-
- Burger King/Hungry Jacks Bacon Deluxe Cheeseburgers (especially with onion rings!)
Quirky Tuesday will have a different topic each week, to tell everyone about a quirk / ritual / obsession / routine about that subject. As little or as many as you like if you're playing along at home. (I sound like a game show host!). Readers can meme it on their own blogs or just comment on here. Don't forget to link!

1. Can you play piano? If so, when did you learn?
My mum bought a huge Yamaha keyboard when I was a kid and I self taught myself some very basic tunes. I can play "By the Rivers of Babylon" including a few chords, and I can play some basic tunes by ear.. although it usually takes me a few attempts.
2. Who is your favorite piano player in popular music?
Chris Martin from Coldplay
3. What is your favorite song featuring the piano?
I'm gonna go way off field here and say Van Halen's Jump - technically it was a synthesizer, but the concept is still the same surely (?)
4. Piano in rock music - yay or nay?
Hell yeah, why not? Gimme a good Crocodile Rock style piano riff any day!
Thanks for mamboing!

As the lift sped up into the dark heart of the tower,the trap door in the ceiling burst open and a couple of big blue floppy things flopped menacingly over the two intruders.
"Ha!" they cried, slapping poor Peanut and Tracy around the elevator with whiplike whacks of their long, furry bodies. "Nothing in the known Universe can defeat the strange, yet awesome agility of the sacred rabbit ears!"
"STOP!" screamed Tracy, suddenly more than a little miffed at her reception. "DO I LOOK LIKE I NEED THIS SHIT IN MY LIFE?"
Peanut stared at her, more than a little aghast.
"Oh, sure, like I don't really know you know that word," she sighed. "Give you five minutes with any group of kids and you probably know more words than I do! So what? It's not about what words you know..."
"IT'S ABOUT HOW YOU USE THEM!" boomed a big, echoing voice as the elevator doors swung open. Out beyond the elevator, the world as they had previously recognised it appeared to have vanished, leaving a far stranger Universe hanging in its place. All around them, from every conceivable angle, a wild assortment of multicoloured planets appeared to be racing each other across open space like reckless, glowing marbles. Bright stars glowered down from the misty distance, blinding Peanut and Tracy in their fierce glare.
Gradually, as the swirl of astral colours began to steady itself, and the weird ballet of astral wotsits came into focus, they could make out the squadron of bright blue fluffy asteroids rolling down through this weird miniature Cosmos towards them.
Two of these asteroids were shaped like rabbit's feet, only without the black caps this time, two like big, floppy bunny ears, two like massive eyes (the kind of eyes you might see frozen in a car's headlights, or peeking out from the bushes on a lazy country walk).
"They're not asteroids," noted Peanut, with his usual perception. "They're bunny-roids."
And as they watched, the weird assortment of flying bunny bits began to merge, stitching themselves together across the cosmic mists like some floating knitting pattern.

Dance life's dance, just a few steps at a time, and in the wink of an eye you will wonder to yourself, "What beast, what mountain? Was I having a dream?"

where do I begin with my questions! :-
1. It says that "he" had "his" breasts removed but "his" reproductive organs were not removed. How can "he" therefore be declared a "man" if she doesn't have male organs?
2. Did his wife know he was born a woman when she married him?
3. Can they they be classed as married if it is not consummated?
4. Are they gonna tell their kid about this?
5. If he has female sex organs.. does that make his wife a lesbian?
6. Is this an April Fools Joke or what!?

The fluffy security foot-guard-thingy flexed its talons and growled at them in what seemed like a particularly unfriendly manner for such an otherwise friendly-looking paw.
"Watch it, Peanut!" gasped Tracy, "those claws look awful sharp!"
Just as she had finished saying this, another rabbit's paw guard thingy bounced onto the ground behind them, cracking the paving with its razor-bladed talons.
OK, so Peanut might well started out unconvinced by the whole Blue Happy Bunny from outer space idea, but even he had to admit that things were beginning to look very suspicious indeed. Something strange was afoot in this tower - and it wasn't just the rabbit's feet (though, of course, technically speaking, each of those was indeed a foot). Besides, no oversized rabbit's feet were going to mess with HIS mum!
He launched a flying kick at the foot-guard-thingy by the door, neatly cracking open one of its talons.
"Oww! Now that's just not... ooowwww!! No, no... oooowww!" whined the stricken guard.
Instantly, the other guard launched itself into the air, its talons neatly splayed out in a kind of killer rake formation, so that anything in its path would instantly be sliced to ribbons.
Peanut had already hit the button on the security door, however, and was pulling his mother into the tower elevator.
"Oh shiiiiiiiiiiiiii..." The second foot-guard-thingy's cry was cut short by the elevator doors slamming shut in its path, followed by a very ugly-sounding THUNK!
"What did he say?" asked Peanut.
"Ohshi," replied Tracy. "It's rabbit-speak for 'Whoops, I missed'."
"Yeah, right," replied Peanut, quietly marvelling to himself at the way mothers always seemed to underestimate quite how many dodgy words their kids actually knew.
Or maybe they don't, he suddenly thought to himself, surprising himself with his own insight. Maybe they just need to believe something better is round the corner.
