Anyone up for mummering?

Victoria will be having a blue Christmas without me, 'cause baby, I am going home! Wheeeee! I hop on the plane Sunday morning, and get home late Sunday night. Hopefully the snow doesn't decide to follow me...

I can't catch a break

Know how I said the snow wasn't sticking? Well, not only did it stick, it blew around all day in 90 mph winds. It was a frickin' blizzard! Gah!

blah and ick

I've had this head cold for 9 days now. Some days I feel pretty good, others...not so much. I just can't seem to shake it. The weather is not cooperating either. It's snowing. Snowing! Ok, it's actually just a few flakes and it's not even sticking, but it's cold enough to snow. It sucks. Know what else sucks? Not sleeping. The past few nights I've woken up at 2:30, and can't get back to sleep. It's like the Amityville Flu or something.

The Big Bang Theory

I frickin' love this show! Ok, maybe it can be a bit predictable at times. It might recycle a few jokes, but doesn't every socially conscious TV sit-com? This show actually makes me LMAFO, and sometimes there's even a little ROFL. I have a major crush on Leonard (omigod so awkward and cute!!!), and Evil Wil Wheaton is totally adorable too! Ooh, and I always sing along when Penny sings Soft Kitty.

Spoiler alert!

I missed the middle of tonight's episode because my mother called (boo). The ending was great though (boo-urns)! Highlights? Amy Farrah Fowler's lesbian experimentation solution for cheering Penny up after their slumber party game of Truth or Dare ended poorly, and Sheldon first stealing the 21 seconds of Raiders of the Lost Ark, then sing-humming the theme song while running away from the angry mob of fanboys.

Ah, good times.

Zombies rock!

So...Walking Dead on AMC. Fully awesome, right? While I don't love everything about the first two episodes (and I was downright huffy in places), overall it's living up to my fangirl expectations. I'll probably write more about it later (after all, the internet thrives on opinionated opinions), but I just wanted to bring up one little thing.

Ahem.

The majority of zombie geeks seem to really resent when zombies are shown using tools. For instance, the zombies in last night's episode of The Walking Dead used a rock to break through the glass wall of the department store. Apparently, zombies aren't supposed to be able to do that. There's one little thing everyone seems to have forgotten though: the scene in Night of The Living Dead where the very first zombie shown picks up a rock and hits the car window with it in an attempt to get at Barbara. He knew what he was doing, too. You can totally tell that he's thinking, "Damn these squishy dead hands of mine! If only I had something hard to hit the glass with." (Looks around.) "Oh hey, a rock! Kick ass!"

Ok, maybe "kick ass" isn't the right phrase. This was during the 60s, so it was probably more like, "Oh hey, a rock! Groovy man, groovy!" Either way, if George Romero (Grandfather of The Zombie), says that zombies use tools, I believe him.

Of course, this makes surviving the inevitable zombie apocalypse even harder. Before, we merely had to draft complicated escape plans, master at least one weapon, cache food and water in various localities, and come to terms with shooting Grandma in the face.

Now we also have to hide all the damn rocks.

i'm a whiny wrimo

NaNoWriMo is so not going well. Not for me anyway. I have a vague plot outline, a few boring characters, and absolutely no inspiration. I'm writing, but not enough. I'm blaming it on the stress of the past couple months, but really, that excuse can only go so far. It's already being used for my neglect of Swap-Bot and embroidery projects, and even my muffin top. Well, the easily available Halloween candy was more to blame for the muffin top. It's a damned fine muffin top too! Lots of chocolate eyeballs were sacrificed in it's name.

Zoiks! I'm more tired than I thought! Must be bed time!

Maybe one of my characters can sign up for NaBloPoMo or something. That should be good for a few extra thousand words each week. lol
