I'm wearing my protected-brains gear so I can't be killed by the ever-vigilant zombie killers out there, so HAR de HAR HAR. Seriously, zombie ficathon y/y? Does this need to happen? Any fandom, or original fic, the only requirement: ZOMBIES.

1. There is no FLDS/LDS discussion in this post, for any newcomers that might be clicking. (and wow - I have no idea how some of you are finding me! I mean, come on over, I don't mind, just where are you finding me? Curious.)
2. I had the day from Mom Hell yesterday with non-stop doctor visits (that led to two new dr. visits, a pre-registration at the hospital [#2 needs surgery on her arm, evidently] getting 20 pounds of rice for the 1rst grade class, buying elastic-waist pants for #2 (one arm = no buttons) and for the love of Pete and Shannon, can SOMEONE make pants for pre-teens that aren't slutty? Did I mention everything was on opposite sides of town from each other? Bah.
3. I made Beef Rendang last night, but with venison and it was delicious. (I didn't have the dried shrimp, however.) We may have that again in a few days, it was so taste-tastic. (Curried onions and carrots on the side, with barley for our starch)
4. lynnenne is coming tomorrow and I am SO EXCITED to have grown-up time. GAAH.
5. If the wind could stop gusting up to 45 MPH that would be suuuuuper. I CAN NOT STAND the wind. I have half-finished flower beds calling me! *reaches passionately towards the windows*
6. I have so much to do today. I want to be a baby and stomp and make fists but I have to be all grown up and handle up on some bidness. GOD. DAMMIT.
7. this video was sent to me by bu_doodlebug this morning and it cracked me up BECAUSE IT IS TRUE. I mean, don't get me wrong. It's twee. But still... I laughed.

Zombie Ficathon? Sign me up, please!
Apr. 17th, 2008 01:47 pm (UTC)
Doesn't that need to happen?! Hopefully next week when things slow down I can organize something like that. (Even if it's just you and me, that's two fics about zombies added to the world. \o/)

20 lbs of rice????
Apr. 17th, 2008 01:49 pm (UTC)
I know! They're learning weights and measures + other sorting skills and I don't even know. They ask, I show up. ;)

I found you via my friends of friends list.

Tell me about the clothes. Either they are covered in the latest licensed character or trying to be like the adults. Oy. If I want something plain like a plain t-shirt I have to go into the boys section. Sheesh.

Hello! (I should have made myself clear - I meant the random clicks coming from all over. I log IPs/hits for non-LJs and I'm curious as to how they're stumbling across my LJ, that's all. And ftr: any and everyone is welcome to read/comment/etc. I don't mind, just curious, is all.)

And EXACTLY re: clothes. Fortunately, Old Navy had some basic tees, but all the shorts have a one inch inseam! 1) that's against our school's dress code and 2) that's against my sensibilities. :D

Enter Sandman is playing on the radio right now.

Also? I like your protective head gear.
Apr. 17th, 2008 04:33 pm (UTC)
NICE!! I'm hoping when Lynne gets here this weekend I can convince her to play RockBand with us. Mostly so we can jam on Enter the Sandman and One. lml -_- lml

Hahahaha - saves my brains and keeps my neck intact!

Zombie ficathon!

Psh, whatever I said about not having time, I lied. I'm already writing it.
Apr. 17th, 2008 04:33 pm (UTC)
SWEEEET. Once this week of craziness is over, I'll get a post up for signups.

Apr. 17th, 2008 02:28 pm (UTC)
I'm currently reading The Zombie Survival Guide right now, so a ficathon would be, like, the most timely thing ever.
Apr. 17th, 2008 04:34 pm (UTC)
If you haven't already, be sure to read his next book, World War Z! MOST AWESOME THING EVER.

I see that cooter and raise you a cookie puss!

Seriously, zombie ficathon y/y?

Y. So very very y.
Apr. 17th, 2008 04:35 pm (UTC)

*high fives your cool ass*

Um, your hand. Not your ass. Unless you're into that. ;)

Self-pimping, and I have no idea if you even remotely know Spooks/Mi-5 fandom (short version: British spies), but I wrote a big long massive Spooks zombie au last year, if you're interested:


Apr. 17th, 2008 04:36 pm (UTC)
I loooooooooved Mi-5! I'm so glad you pimped, thank you! (And hey - if you want to write more, I'll have a ficathon post next week!)

I don't usually do fic, but for you ehneeteeng! I'll join in on the zombie madness. Can it be sans-fandom? And if it can't, can it be fandom-of-my-choice?

I warn you, though--I may be late, as my wedding date fast approaches, and then by mid-June I am the relocating to AUSTRALIA ZOMG.

And another OMG--surgery? I am sending vibes of goodness and healing y'all's way!

And one last OMG for Venion Rendang. [wipes drool off keyboard]

At work, going nuts, must GO--good luck with your to-do-ingess!
Apr. 17th, 2008 04:37 pm (UTC)
Oh my god, you should write Shaun of the Dead fic!! (It'll be multi-fandom or Original Fiction, either, or.)

Mid-June?!? Holy crap, that's so exciting and RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER. Oh my goodness, I'm sending you loads of energy and positive mental attitude YOUR WAY. *OM*
Apr. 17th, 2008 05:00 pm (UTC)
Buying clothes for the Monstrous is a constant exercise in 'wtf?' and 'hell no!' Yeeesh.
Apr. 17th, 2008 08:29 pm (UTC)
I mean, honestly. When is good taste coming back in style? =p

I am picturing you in your head gear eating leftovers. The redang does sound delicious. Did you boil the venison for an hour like the beef? That seems like a lot of dried shrimp...

Elastic waist pants can be slutty?

The wind is awful. I want to go on my walk, but there's so much dust and grit in the air I keep putting it off *shakes fist at the skies*

Are you working on a zombie fic, too?
Apr. 17th, 2008 08:28 pm (UTC)
HAHAHAHA! Oh, and the rendang was SO. GOOD. Even my son, who is weird with meat (he hates steak. STEAK!) loved it. I did boil the venison, but only for 40 minutes. It actually needed a bit more, but probably not an hour, given how lean it is.

More that clothes in general for her age are slutty, which pisses me off. But even some of the elastic waist knit shorts (like, for kicking around in, exercising, that sort of thing) had teeny tiny inseams. I'd like my daughter's body covered within reason, thank you. Jeeez.

I will be - esp. if I can get this ficathon up and running!
Apr. 17th, 2008 06:37 pm (UTC)
Poor yous, stuck in Mom Hell! Poor #2! I hope her arm is aces again soon and that your day includes less running around than yesterday.

Man, what is with the hoochie waistline on pants right now? My poor little'un is tall for her age, so I'm having to buy things that are clearly made for older girls who are also, possibly, sex industry professionals. I swear, the last time we tried on jeans, she had two inches of underwear showing above the waist. I'm just going to have to suck it up and go somewhere sensible. Like Sears! *rant over*
Apr. 17th, 2008 08:26 pm (UTC)
See, my #2 is tall for her age, as well (5' 2" and she's 10) so we have to find looooooong and slim. Um... Yeah, that's easy. Old Navy has a good slim line (anything with those stretchy bands inside is a WIN) and the Gap usually has stuff that's not whore-wear. But I'm not buying a messy, sloppy, hole-in her clothes-making child a complete wardrobe from The Gap or J. Crew. I mean, please.

Oooh, Justus/Justice is a good place for that 'tween age, I just always forget about them because they're on the other side of town...

Target has jean shorts for juniors that are long enough to make me happy and short enough to make my daughter happy. Not slung too low either. I think they were about $15 (I think).

I love the wind, but it was so strong up until yesterday, the love was gone. Luckily there was no wind today. Just rain. Urg.
Apr. 18th, 2008 01:41 pm (UTC)
My problem is my #2 has a broken arm, so buttons and zippers are hard for her. I'm just looking for some elastic-waist shorts/skirts that aren't crazy short, which has been hard to find!

(And we're in Texas, it's already in the 80s, soon to be 90s, so sweat pants will be... uncomfortable. *G*)

I did find some capris at Target that worked. I <3 Target!

I found you through Jesus.

And stop beating on your kids already. Obviously their bones are more brittle than you realised. It's probably all the deficiencies through surviving on a bowl of rice a day.

Aw, did he find you? Be sure to get some of his tamales. That and the hot sauce his mother makes is DIVINE.

You know what? One bowl of rice is fine for the starving people of North Korea, it's good enough for my kids. IT BETTER BE. I have to save all that food money to get a tummy tuck and fake lip implants!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
