The Page You Have All Been Waiting For
And I have decided that it is time to introduce you and tell you some of his back story.

A mini-blue-bunny, approximately 2.5 inches in height, who carries a felt carrot, who lost his left eye sometime around the end of 2009.
Horatio's Back Story:
In Spring 2009, I was a poor fifth-year college student, preparing to graduate. A good friend of mine, Kara, was performing her Junior Voice Recital, and being my procrastinating self, I found myself the day of the recital without a gift for my friend. (for those of you who do not know me very well, I love to give people things...cards, gifts, random items, a smiley face sticker...it's just who I am). Being on a limited budget (poor college student defined: paying for college, paying for gas and car insurance, purchasing anything pertaining to myself; working 2-4 part time jobs during the semester and 3-5 part time jobs during the summer), I was well acquainted with clearance aisles and second-hand stores. I quickly checked out the clearance aisle at the campus store. A couple of plants-in-a-can caught my eye.

Then I saw it.
A cute light-blue sequin-and-beaded bag. When I picked it up, it was a little lumpy. I checked the tag. Within my budget...then I saw the tag's description: "mini-blue-bunnies-in-a-bag." No joke. On a time crunch, I grabbed the little, lumpy bag, and after purchasing my gifts, I headed to the recital.
|Horatio and Abe|
Somehow, Horatio ended up in classes with me, studying for nursing boards, flying to PA for a wedding...and at some point, he stowed away on my 3 week musical missions trip to Cali.

All in all, he has proved a worthy traveling companion, whether by air or land.
