So I have been spending the last couple of days working at the McPherson Library at UVic. It’s easy to carpool with Julie, and gives me an opportunity to get away from the house and the distractions contained therein. It’s funny – yesterday I was sitting in a carrel working on my swanky new laptop, and I am pretty sure I sat in the same one, with my then swanky new laptop* , 15 years ago when I was a student here in 1991. Who would’ve thunk it.
So being here on campus, I’ve been seeing the bunnies – a feature of the geography here I had nearly forgotten about.
I am not sure where they came from, but I’d say there are more here now than there were before. I counted 9 walking from the parking lot to the library. They just hop about, munching grass, being bunnies. It’s a little weird, and oddly comforting. This has been how I have been finding most of Victoria in general. I took some video on my little camera and posted it on YouTube. You can also see it below.
* My first computer was pretty slick at the time, a Mac Powerbook 100 – the first Mac laptop Apple built. 2 MB Ram (I upgraded form 1) and a 20 MB hard drive! The pinnacle of computing, it’s been downhill ever since.
