Not a lot as far as I can see as they are as emotional as each other!
The 16 year old-well the least said there the better,!
The computer however is driving me totally nuts, it is behaving so emotional recently(a bit like the 16 year old) that I am convinced that a visit to a counselor would definitely help. Again , the computer has gone into it's I WANT TO BE ALONE mode and I spent 15 minutes swapping keyboards and mice(Beauty is still breaking them faster than I can replace them).
AND as for the piggy boys, you walk past them and they go into hysteria mode and scurrying around as if I intended to eat them!
I'M A VEGETARIAN does not seem to convince them!
We are also having ISSUES with Beauty.
Not content with destroying computers(is that an Olympic sport?), she has also taken to destroying eggs.Her teacher thinks it is something to do with a shape sorter game that they have in school where eggs crack in half and there are smaller eggs inside, a bit Matrioska-ish.
Fiona and Beauty have also taken to squabbling together like a pair of 4 year olds, for Beauty that is good news, that she is acting like a 4 year old but as for the 16 year old.....well I did expect her to act at least like a teenager!

We also had a serious incident with Beauty and the rabbit! The other night I couldn't find her but eventually I did, she was in with the rabbit .....playing with the straw in his hutch!
I was convinced I was going to find him dead BUT he and Beauty were fine. They were sat together as happily as an old married couple. Looking back I shouldn't have been worried, If Beauty had tried to hurt the rabbit he would definitely have bitten her and she would have been out of there like a shot.
If she had tried to get in with the piggy boys their hysterical squeaking would have been heard by Belle in Florida and Anastasia in Austria!
Yep, I think Bunny Boy can definitely handle himself, if he were human he would definitely be one of those large but gentle security guards that you respect , a bit like my brother in-law-6ft 4in's, as we say in Wales built like a brick built ****(poop) house but an absolute sweetheart.

Today is post 600-WOW.....who would have thought I would find the time to write so much.

Computers definitely have stress detectors and play up when they sense stress in the user/owner... I suspect that children and pets have a similar faculty...!

Glad to hear the bunny survived!

'Squabbling' must be catching - ours are at it all the time at the moment (I think the time of year might have something to do with it - too many things going on outside the norm!).

600! Yes wow! Well done.


Hi Steve,
in the early 90's I completed a first year of a degree in computers but changed to a History degree because I found computers to be such an inexact science(it peed me off too much!).Even though my children can be little moos they have never made me feel such anger as I feel towards computers at times, sometimes I could happily dump every bit of computer technology that I own in the nearest skip!

Hi Elissa, yes, squabbling definitely seems to be a bit of a problem at the moment with my girls. Remember however, my girls are 16,18,22 and 7 and really should know better! Do they ever grow up?
In perspective,I had had 2 children by the time I was 22.... I am glad really that they can be children as long as possible.

Hi Casdok,
I just can't believe that I have written so much.
Considering that I am not the chatty type and prefer quiet around the house, such an outpouring of words is even more surprising for the likes of me.

An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
