Random Thursday: Zombie Apocalypse - 5 Things In My Favour...

This week's RT topic with Lin, Katrin and I is not for the squeamish:

I would not do well in a zombie apocalypse. Let's just say that up front. However I do have a few things going for me.

1. I've watched a LOT of Walking Dead. And while watching it, I watched Daryl very, very carefully. And I'd say at least 2.5% of that time I was paying attention to how he killed stuff.

2. I might not be great at fighting, but I can hide like a champ. And I like explosives.

3. Lin, Rusty and I have worked out a plan. The plan is they work their way north to Canada, toting all the guns they own and pick up in America (aka the land of many weapons) and they protect us while I... I dunno. Mix the drinks or something.

4. I have three cats who do not like strangers, even when they're NOT dead and dripping foul-smelling goo everywhere. Also I might not be great at standing up for myself, but if someone I care about is in danger, I go all rabid moma bear.  Do NOT mess with my peeps.

5. I did go to a shooting range. Once. And I hit the target. Take that, zombie assholes. You're going DOWN. (Possibly. Once I remember how to load the gun. And aim.)

 (Oh, and sidebar - here's Norman Reedus when he was learning to use the crossbow. So I feel a bit better now.)

 Realistically though, I'd last about 5 minutes.

What about you guys? Would you be a survivor or zombie bait?

Random Thursday: Favourite Easter Traditions....

This week's RT topic with Lin, Katrin and I is all about...

Favourite Easter Traditions.

I don't know much about Easter, being from a non-religious background. So here's what I do know:

1. Cadbury's Mini Eggs

Goddamn these things are delicious.

2. Pace Eggs

We used to make these (without the pretty flower) by boiling eggs with onion skins. Super pretty designs to fancy up breakfast a little bit!

3. Easter hunt

I loved these when I was a kid. It's like a treasure hunt, only one you can actually find the treasure!


Come on, say it with me. "AAAAWWWWWWWWW!!!!" Yeah. That's right. Your turn!

Random Thursday: What I'm Looking Forward To In Spring...

This week's RT topic with Lin, Katrin and I is a seasonal one!

What I'm Looking Forward To In Spring.

Hmmm. This is going to be a short post, because I'm mad at spring right now. I get seasonal allergies, and this year the pollen count is apparently through the roof. Which means I've got headaches and sniffles and sore eyes and fatigue like you wouldn't believe. I pretty much just spend the day trying not to fall asleep and drool on my keyboard. So spring isn't lookin' that great to me right now.

Nevertheless, here's a couple of things that prove that spring isn't all bad. I guess. 

Longer days. 

I hate getting off work and by the time I'm halfway home it's pitch black. It'll be nice to feel like there's some day left in my day after work!

Less shivering.

I have terrible circulation and I get cold a LOT. So it's nice to actually, you know, feel my fingers and nose for a change.

Yeah... that's about all I got. How 'bout you guys?
