i had no idea.

so, in lieu of watching the superbowl (or as my dad called it 'the superboringbowl') i did what any 28 year old woman would do: watched Little House - the Final Farewell.

which was, um, really uninteresting until the end. in case there are, well, all of you who have never seen this, there was a legal misunderstanding after the sioux treaty fell apart and walnut grove which had been a homestead town on former reservation land, actually belonged to an entrepeneur. so he told everyone, you don't own your land. you can work for me and still live where you've always lived or you can get out of dodge.

a side story had jeb and jason carter raising bunnies to sell for easter gifts.

luckily, charles and caroline came back to town in time for all this to go down.

anyhow, everyone decided they weren't getting off the land, so the Bad Man brought in the cavalry to evict everyone in 48 hours.

so the townspeople decided to blow all the buildings up, because he owned the land, not the buildings or businesses.

then we had a 20 minute montage of walnut grove blowing up.

and the final shot showed the little house on the prairie overrun with bunnies. obviously.

the end.

Remind me of old joke...

When me was little me has two bunnies, but they BAD bunnies that get into trouble all the time. Me no what to spank them or anything, so me just shake me finger at them. This work for while, but they keep being BAD and then no care if me shake me finger. So me get stick. Me no want to hit them, so me just shake stick at them. That work for while too, but they still go back to being BAD and no care if me shake stick. So to punish them, me take them out and lock them up in barn to think about how BAD they am. When me come back, guess what me find. Me have more bunnies than me can shake a stick at!

I'm glad the show remained historically accurate -- honoring the good ol' tradition of a Minnesota Town Blow-Up.

Rabbits scare me. See "Night of the Lepus" for a further explanation.

pei lo mein, my mom's favorite episode was where caroline got gangrene or something and was about to amputate her own leg with a carving knife.
