Alice in Zombieland

0

Okay, so I just finished reading Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter. It’s the first in the White Rabbit series. That book is pretty freaking awesome! And not just because it has zombies in it, and we all know by now that I am of course a huge fan of zombies. Of course, the zombies are part of it but whatever, that really isn’t my point. Well, not really.

Even though the zombies in this book aren’t all happy and in love or anything like that, it’s still pretty awesome. The characters kick ass, literally a lot of the times. But they are also really cool. Alice Bell, aka Ali, is a zombie slayer which, under normal circumstances, I would really not approve of but in this book, I can make an exception.

The male lead in the book, Cole, is also pretty awesome even for a zombie killer. He rivals my love interest from “Warm Bodies” for sure. It’s a close fight really.

Also, I really love the cover art on the books. They just look awesome. I know you aren’t supposed to judge a book by it’s cover but sometimes I can’t help myself. I like pretty things.

I don’t want to say too much and give anything away about the book, other than

that I will be getting the second one, Through the Zombie Glass, soon because it comes out this month. If you like good stories that have a lot of fight scenes, some very touching emotional stuff, and of course, zombies, you should really look into it.

I’ll keep you updated on the second book as soon as I get my hands on it. Until then, don’t get bit.

Toddlers and Tiaras and Glitter… Probably Anti-Zombie

0

Okay, so there are an insane number of bizarre reality television shows that are on TV now. I mean, there are entire channels that are really just made up with reality TV shows, even if they aren’t called reality TV, we all know that’s what they are. Maybe they aren’t exactly like Big Brother or anything of that nature, but I never actually watched that show so I don’t really have a whole lot to compare it to. But there are shows like, once again never watched it but I know enough not too, Jersey Shore and Jerry Springer and Survivor and the list goes on. Some of these shows aren’t quite as awful I guess. I don’t watch Honey Boo Boo or anything but I have to admit to watching the awful show, Toddlers and Tiaras.

You know the show that I mean, where they dress up little itty bitty kids in clothing that is sometimes more revealing than anything I’d ever leave the house in, let alone prance around on stage. And the makeup is more than enough to put your stereotypical hooker to shame. Hookers wear makeup, right? So maybe I don’t have a whole lot of experience in that department either, my bad. I’ve seen a few before, but that was in Scotland and maybe things work differently in the US. I’m not sure. There aren’t any Page 3 Girls in the US, if you don’t know what I’m talking about you probably aren’t from the UK.

Not the point though. I kind of already forgot what I was talking about. Totally got distracted by the hookers. Anyways… My favorite part about the awful Toddlers and Tiaras is all the glittery stuff going on there. Sequins galore, rhinestones, glitter… It’s just so sparkly that I can’t help myself.puppy wearing a crown

Diamonds are wonderful and all but I think really as long as it’s sparkly you have a winner. Remember that boys, women enjoy sparkly jewelry. And puppies. Don’t forget the puppies!

But I was talking about that show. T&T for now, it’s too long to write out each time. And I just don’t feel like it. Mostly I just don’t feel like it.

So I can understand wanting to instill confidence in your children, especially your little girls, and wanting them to feel beautiful and stuff, but I also feel like with all the makeup and stuff, being so unnatural, it isn’t really a natural beauty. And I think it might make little girls think that they have to be the most beautiful person around to be happy. And of course, if they don’t win then they don’t think they are pretty and that’s really sad.

Maybe I should enter a beauty pageant. That would go over really well, I’m sure. Zombie for Miss America. My platform could be no brains left uneaten, or something like that. Until next time, don’t get bit.

This Zombie Is Still Kicking… Sort of

I’m still alive! Well, actually, I’m still dead but you get the point, correct? If you don’t, I mean, I don’t know what to tell you. Maybe you’re just kind of slow. Who knows. Anyways, I’ve been crazy busy recently with the whole college thing and working and otherwise being a member of the living dead.

Incase you care, I am in my final year of school. Which is quite wonderful. Because I get to be an “adult” after I graduate. Not that it matters because who knows who would actually hire a zombie for a real job, like in their office and stuff. Hopefully I’ll be okay with freelance work or find something that will allow me to work from home. That would be cool, I can telecommute to work from home and be in my pajamas. That would be just wonderful.crazy zombie

If you must know, this whole graduating and finding a job thing is driving me absolutely crazy though. I mean, lock me up in a nut house and throw away the key kind of crazy. Well, maybe not quite that bad. But it could be. Can zombies even be crazy? Or is that just besides the point? Because I’m not even alive. I don’t know, clearly.

Also! Group projects in college and being made to sit in a circle in classes are so stupid. I don’t care that I have to work with others in the ‘real world’, that’s fine! When I’m joining the ‘real world’ I will do that. Until then, let me work alone. And sitting in a circle, I don’t think that does anything for me. Just saying.

 

Enough, more homework. But I’m back kids! I hope you didn’t forget about me. Until next time, don’t get bit.
