happy new year?

where to start? lil b - she's doing okay. we have her on several meds while we await the results of some tests. it's probably either an inner ear infection or this. fingers crossed it's the former, as there's no cure for the latter (and it's contagious amongst the bunnies - yay). at least it's generally not fatal - just sometimes physically debilitating. poor girl is still very dizzy and not terribly mobile but at least now she's found a way to control a nasty head tick that she was unable to shake for about 24 hours.

so. what's a stressed and worried girl to do? why, watch as her friends make light of themselves with some good 'ole high school musical karaoke.
