Caught in the Headlights

Bunny girl with big eyes I’m staring at the headlights, those big white eyes that just get bigger and bigger and…

It all began on May 28th, this year, when I innocently stepped onto the cyberhighway with a little lad called Jamie Kane holding my hand. Jamie and I were immersed in a conversation that last a few days, and then another joined in a few months after. Besides that, we’ve just stood in the middle of the cyberhighway, being visited by others now and then.

But then I heard a rumbling, I turned, and met two white eyes.

    Yes, I had fun with the layers of reading. This isn’t scriptons & textons, it is…words and terms fail me now. Any ideas?

    And yes, it should be clear that I did not play any intentional role in the viral marketing accusation that has been aimed at the BBC. However, I am involved, unintentionally, by being pull invoked — I perceive — to help make the entry a genuine one.
