Zombie Apocalypse Book Tag

Since I may not have a book review ready this week, I’m going to do a Zombie Book Blog Tag. It’s an old book blog tag but it’s still worthy. If you have a chance, visit Beatrice at DreamlandBookBlog. Her zombie book post is pretty awesome.

If you would like to participate, consider yourself tagged. It’s fine if it’s not your cup of tea.

You can find the original video here, and if you want to find out more about how the tag works, I suggest you go watch that. 🙂 In short, though, this is what you need to do:

1. Pick 5 books.

2. Turn to a random page.

3. The first name you see gets to be on your zombie survival team.

4. Apply the characters to the 10 situations and types of people in the order you got them.

The Reader

1. The first person to die:

Hanna.

She may not be chaotic evil but she did let people die needlessly because she was following orders.

2. Person you trip to get away from zombies:

Michael

I’m kind of sorry. He’s probably a decent person. Or he could be a weak link.

If you are interested in Nazis and Zombies, check out this book.

Othello

3. The first person to turn into a zombie:

Desdemona

She probably was set up by Iago.

4. The Person that trips you to get away from the zombies:

Iago

I’m not surprised at all that he would trip me to save himself. Iago is all about self-preservation. At any cost.

There’s a book about Othello and Zombies . . .

How have I missed this jem?

Wicked

5. The idiot of the team:

Frex.

Yeah, he is. Let’s send him on a missionary trip somewhere over the rainbow.

6. The brains of the team:

Elphaba.

She is smart and potential for ruthlessness. We might stand a chance if she focuses her anger on zombies.

Tess of the D’Urbervilles

7. The team Medic:

Jack Durbeyfield.

Oh my glob. We’ll never be healed. He’s always drunk. Plus, since he’s drinking all of the alcohol, what will we use to disinfect wounds? Dang it.

8. The weapons expert:

Joan Durbeyfield.

Interesting choice. Maybe she’ll surprise us with her knowledge of weapons?

Their Eyes were Watching God

Here’s a link to an article about Zora Neale Hurston and zombies. https://io9.gizmodo.com/zora-neale-hurston-zombie-hunter-5823671

Don’t let your feelings for somebody turn you into a love zombie https://www.pinterest.com/pin/552042866793891172/

9. The brawler:

Janie

She doesn’t strike me a a fighter – in a physical sense. However, that doesn’t mean she won’t fight. Janie isn’t going to go by anyone’s rules either.

10. The Team Captain:

Pheoby

I’m ok with Pheoby. I think she’ll give underdogs a chance and cut players from the team.

a to z bucket list: drink a Zombie


The bartender said that this is a Zombie, even though it’s not green. It gave me heartburn so I felt like I was dying for a brief moment. 

If it was closer to Halloween, I could have dressed up like a Zombie for a zombie run. It’s still on my bucket list.

Nablomo: Scary Comments

scary

For Friday the 13th: have you ever received a comment that scared you?

Fortunately, I have not received any scary or threatening comments. The one marriage proposal was only slightly alarming. However, I was fairly certain that no one was going to show up on my doorstep with an engagement ring. If that had happened, I would have been worried.
Is it scarier that no one is proposing to me? I think I will survive. What if the zombie apocalypse happens? What am I supposed to do with a diamond ring? A ring would not be very useful. Diamonds could be useful on the end of a pole or pitchfork. It would have to be a lot of diamonds. I don’t think I have the heart to use diamonds like that anyway. I’ll just keep the garden tool that is already bent out of shape. You guys can keep your baubles. Bring me a can opener, a jar of peanut butter and a supply of toothpaste. Maybe a goat too.

Zombies: A to Z Challenge

Up until the last few years, I didn’t really watch zombie movies or television shows. So thank you “The Walking Dead.” I love this show, even though it grosses me out. It helps to have a strong stomach. (If it weren’t for those food allergies, I’d be golden.)
Last fall, Lucas and I went to the Wizard’s World/Ohio Comic Con. There were zombies everywhere. Most of the cast of “The Walking Dead” were making appearances. I saw Norman Reedus from a distance and Michael Rooker up close. It was awesome! Hopefully, we can go next year. I think Norman Reedus will be there again. 🙂
