I lived the old Army motto this morning.

I didn't ask, and I didn't tell. Wait, that's not the right one, I did more by 9am than most people do all day. And now I'm ready for my nap.

CAN WE TALK ZOMBIES MORE, GUYS?! Because I watched every minute of the marathon yesterday, the premiere last night, and then read THIS AWESOME RECAP/DISCUSSION POST this morning, and I want you to, too, and then let's talk there, because that girl needs some boosting, for she is new to the whole writing/internet game. (Let's support fellow writers, yeah?)

Then I had to come off my high by listening to the Real Housewives of Jersey squabble, and it's official. I'm done after this season. I stuck it out, but life is too short, and I'm just over all of them. There's no joy in Mudville. I'll see it through, and then nada.

I started the laborious task of cleaning out my garden for the winter, and man, there was a lot of stuff that didn't die in our record-breaking summer of heat and drought. And it's called Bermuda grass. (Weeds, too.) I let everything go fallow this summer, because I didn't fancy dying of heat stroke, and I am paying for it now by having a lot of weeding to do. I filled a 50 gallon barrel with weeds. And I literally only moved 5 feet. For new folks: I have about 1/3 of an acre of garden space.

My hands are aching. I just can't bring myself to hire gardeners, though. They just don't know how to do it my way, zomg.

This is the lamest post ever, sorry. EXCEPT GO TO THE ZOMBIE LINK AND TALK!!! (I need a brownie today, I think. And I still have my workout to fit in. *cries*)

I can't watch the premiere until the mister gets off work. We have been glued to baseball, baseball, baseball. Thank goodness we have a two day breather so I can watch the last episode of Supernatural and The Walking Dead before I expire from anticipation.

Oh, my, that's a lot of weeds and weeding. At least it's finally gorgeous outside.

Apparently you are in for some Must See TV on both counts. O_O We'll be waiting for you, because you know I'll never tire of talking about TWD.

Oh, it's SO pretty. I'm considering bagging the weight training today and just pulling weeds. It's quite the upper body workout. Hmm.

I'm sure you have seen this, but it should be in this thread for posterity:



Btw, I was at the WD panel at the NYCC on Saturday, and they are all utterly delightful people. <3

IS THAT NOT A THING OF BEAUTY!??!?!?!

I have a massive love for Christopher Walken, so it's like the universe made it for me. THANK YOU FOR THE LINK.

Oh, that is SO good to know!! Oh my gosh, Andrew Lincoln. I want to just sit near him. I don't need to touch him or talk, just look at him in real life. <3 I am so happy this show is back, I can't even start.

And you icon made me laugh out loud.

Andrew wasn't there, but based on what the cast members were saying, they all LOVE working together and it's an amazing atmosphere on set; plus, apparently the writers invited them all to talk about the layout for season 2 and it's pretty incredible to be that involved in the process, so they're deeply enthusiastic all around. D'AWWW, TEAM.

Your posts make me laugh out loud all the time, so I'm glad I could return the favor a bit! :)

Just... there's no fun to be found, you know? I love when they're ditzy and silly and stuff like that, but when it's nothing but ugliness (and law breaking) I'm just... it makes me feel icky, not happy like in the beginning. I miss Grandma Wrinkles. :(

Yeah law breaking and just plain ugliness of the worse sort.

I haven't been able to connect to HDJM for almost 2 hours now!!! I need my fix! Why does The Universe hate me and want me to do actual work today!!!

An entire region is down right now, and I've been silently freaking out for almost 2 hours now.

FFFFFFFFFFFFFU!!!

I would love to jump in the discussion on The Walking Dead....but I am a bad bad bad person and have not yet finished the first season, so I had to skip watching the premiere last night. I think I only have three more eps on season 1, then I can jump in.

In conclusion, I have brownies and Taco Bake. *waves under your nose*

Those posts aren't going anywhere, bb! And Kristi is your kind of people, you'll like her recaps.

Wheee!!!! I'm taking a rare day today when there is no upcoming test to do laundry and clean and *gasp* eat a cooked meal, instead of just a sandwich on the go. So I'm going to try and get all catched up on that and a couple other things.

I would bring you brownies if I had more than half a tank of gas and the reasonable assumption that I could be back home in time for work in the morning.

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.
