Thanks so much, everyone! I'm sorry I didn't get online earlier, but my internet just got hooked up. I love some of those suggestions, and will be heading out for samples in the next couple of days.

I really appreciate the input.

Actually, the pre-cleaning tones of the Sistine Chapel reflect Michelangelo's intent far more than the colours after they removed his detailwork... to get his colour palette, sculptural would be the way to go.

(The "cleaners" removed a lot of Michelangelo's actual work. Frescoes almost never were completed entirely in the wet plaster, so were finished after the plaster dried. If he had done the whole thing in wet plaster, it would have been noted by art historians of the era, like Vasari. The cleaning removed all work that was done over the plaster itself.)

I'd like to echo medenver's post... yes, bunnies can be difficult, but only if they don't receive proper training and attention. My first bunny was incredibly aggressive when I first adopted him and required hours of training, love, and attention to calm down.

My second, and current, is very codependent and affectionate, but when I first got him he was sick and depressed... it's all about learning what sort of personality the little guy has and working with him. Same as with any animal. Or person for that matter.

Once they're trained, though, I've found them to be relatively low maintenance on cleaning... just demanding when it comes to rubbing their heads and playing.

I used to have all black stoneware- functional and chip-proof, but so boring. I've started collecting each type of dish from a different set. Now I've got blue, grey, and white and it works perfectly.
