I am not a zombie

Unlike Mr Scalzi and a scary number of others, I am not a zombie. The flesh is still pink and I’m craving miso soup, not brains. (At least not unless they’re lamb’s brains lightly sauteed with lots of garlic.)

I suspect that the apocalypse has not hit New York City yet. Figures that it would ravage the midwest first.

We have a reinforced steel door and enough food to last . . . Hang on a second.

Oh. Okay, enough food to last a few hours. But there’s lots of booze. So I’m good.

And, frankly, I can think of no better way to spend the apocalypse than holed up with me old man and two cases of really good wine.

Here comes Scott to open the first bottle.

Scott? Scott! Oh my Go—

    It’s funny, my first reaction when I saw the apocalypse note on The Whatever was “Hmmm, my guess is Justine Larbalestier is more likely to participate in this than in ‘invasion of the unicorns’ day” 🙂

    Looks like all of the authors are getting eaten by zombies. Makes me glad I’m unpublished!

    wait! I haven’t put my zombie apocalypse kit together yet! No fair! We need more warning! The government should do something!

    Oh god they’ve just made Rita Verdonk prime minister of the netherlands, I see her dragging the nearly headless corpse of the previous p.m., old harry potter, on the tv news now…

    Do you really have a reinforced steel door? ’cause you know, after reading about scott assesing tourist destinations for apocolyspe potentital it really wouldn’t surpise me…
