Gold Medalist in Zombie Survival!

Hello everyone! I hope you had a great week! I read an awesome book about zombies this week (The Reapers are the Angels by Alden Bell—if you like zombies and haven't read it, I strongly recommend it. Because it's all shades of awesome. It's also considered "literary" fiction so you get all the flesh-eating gore, plus some smarts to boot!!) so I've had zombies on the brain all week long. Then I thought I'd celebrate the Olympics in my own "special" way by holding the unofficial survival zombie-mpics.

Basically this consisted of me suddenly lunging at my husband at random times to test his ninja reflexes in fighting off a zombie attack. Turns out that there was never anyone more ill-equipped for zombies as my husband. I must have mock-eviscerated him at least a dozen times! C'MON! I practically sprung out of the womb ready for the apocalypse! I'm like the Chuck Norris of zombie killers and now I have to protect a man who practically advertises himself as an all-you-can-eat buffet. Sigh. Apparently I'm going through the apocalypse solo. Anyone want to enter my survival zombie-mpics? Try for the gold medal in zombie survival? Remember, it's just one bite and you're ooooooouuuuutttttt! [say "out" like you're an umpire and it's twice as fun. Especially because it makes me think of zombies playing baseball. The Flesh-eating Padres get a home run! Mostly because the Zombie Dodgers are too busy trying to eat the crowd. Next up are the Boston Dead Sox versus the Reanimated Yankees! Now buy me some peanuts and crackerjacks damnit!]

Pssssstttt..... wanna know a secret? I'm incapable of hearing the words "absolutely nothing" without wanting to yell out "SAY IT AGAIN!!" Thanks to Rush Hour, I often think about Jackie Chan while doing it. Now, there's a man I'd like to test in my survival zombie-mpics. But I reckon jumping out randomly at Jackie Chan would just get me a kick to the face. However, wouldn't that make a good story? I got kicked in the face by Jackie Chan! Now there's an ice breaker.

Anyway, onto the mail!

Incoming:






Look at the detail on Sukie's vintage envelope above. Sukie thinks it's from the 50's. Isn't it exquisite? Love it. The typewritten address adds just that extra touch, don't you think?

Check out these awesome arrows that Patty made for me. Aren't they neat-o?!! Definitely velociraptor-iffic! Love them!


Mary sent me a freaking dinosaur in the mail. A DINOSAUR. You don't mess with a woman who can tame the wild power of a dinosaur enough to send him through the mail. That's crazy bad ass.







Outgoing:











And that's all folks. I'm off to award the gold medal in the 100-metre-dash-after-stealing-a-Leprechauns-gold event. Take care and stay awesome.

  1. That's what that was all about. I had no idea why you kept creeping up behind trying to bite me. I thought it had something to with some sort of deficiency we would need to have a long talk about. I feel much better about it all now.

    1. I wouldn't feel *that* much better about it. Did you miss the part where I said you seriously sucked?! You were SO far from winning the games. Like if the olympic podium was in Canada, you're in New Zealand.

  2. I'm glad you got the dino and I love the balloons on the envelope you sent to Miki! And who sent the package in the third picture down? Brown background + beautiful color pops? Love it!!

  3. If you can say, "you're ooooooouuuuutttttt" with a mouth full of person (cause you just bit them) you should get a gold medal for...something. I don't know what...

    1. I reckon it would sound something like, "mmmoouurrrr oouuugggttttttt!!!!" with a mouth full of arm. And they should get a gold medal! But like a flesh medal, except they would eat it, and then want more... and it's kind of a circular existence being a zombie, isn't it? Want flesh; eat flesh; want more flesh. Yeah, yeah, get a new schtick!!

  10. What, no letter for me yet?! You're almost as SLOW as I am! :P

    (Seriously, take all the time you need to write back, your letters are the best and you're so quick that sometimes I think you might not even be human. Are you?)

  13. Wow :D Love your blog and your awesome letters! You've inspired me to send one to my BF (he lives far away ;'C) I gotta say it was so fun making the envelope and decorating it. He'll probably just send me a plain one back -.- :D If you haven't seen it you should check out Urban Outfitter's tiny post office! (http://www.urbanoutfitters.co.uk/tiny-post-office/invt/5620415773351/&bklist=) Awesome! He's getting a tiny letter too :D
