Last Minute Gift Idea

December 23, 2010

Just in time for Christmas, I find this delight. If you pay for expedited delivery, you might even be able to have one of these beauties in time for Saturday. Just give the family some warning – some of these require alcohol for any extended viewing.

I dare you to watch this video (horrible song and all) and not find yourself dancing. I think I love this bird!

Something Else to Do (This time, with a smile.)

July 7, 2010

Thank you to the biggest of my younger brothers for turning me on to what I can only describe as “the funniest blog (meets web comic) about me written by someone I have never met and knows nothing about me.” (And not just because I, too, had a slow dog when I was a kid.) She made me laugh so hard I actually had tears streaming down my face.

Thank you MDM!

Be Prepared, You’re Fodder

December 9, 2009

If you got here by way of That Other Blog taking aim at me for my family’s preparedness, I’m going to venture a guess that you’re NOT prepared. Otherwise, you’d have put her in her place through the comments and never had a second thought about my motives or status.

For those of you unprepared, take a few minutes to poke through this site for some ideas. I’m sure you’ll only pick a few convenient things to do which also works in my favor. In the beginning, I believe there will be significant “fodder” resulting in large zombie populations, but I’ll need more people to survive longer to ensure an adequate, ongoing “fodder” supply while the initial people affected are eliminated. In other words, when they come after my family (because no level of preparation will be sufficient to completely eliminate the need to “get away quickly”), I’m going to need reassurance that there’s someone I can outrun.  It’s that old adage that I don’t need to be able to outrun my predator, just the other people around me.
