Scores

The really sad thing about the Zombie Preparedness Training?  I failed one of the tests three times.

I has a stupid.

But I put the stupid down for long enough to pass the test today.  This was fine for my mood today, but it did nothing for my mood yesterday, so after work, I toddled off to the craft store for balsa wood to continue working on my doll house (I might post pictures of my progress as of last weekend; I might not.  It depends how I feel).  On the way, I found that Goodwill has opened a new store in the same shopping centre as the Michael's, and so I checked it out.

I scored four - four! - work skirts that fit perfectly.  My mood improved.  One of them appeared to have been donated simply because the hem was falling out, so I stitched it back up again, and I'm wearing it today.  It's muy cute.

I love thrifting.  I can buy four skirts suitable for work for less than $17, what's not to love?  I have the great advantage that there are four major thrifts within fifteen minutes of the apartment, so I get my cheap thrills often. 

Anyway, just rambling.  The zombies ate my brain.

Yea and verily, what's not to love!
There's a Goodwill a short drive from a friend's home, whereat I've obtained a great deal of my dining room linens.
There's another Goodwill store considerably closer to the same friend's home, at which we've both found some reasonably good scores on small things as well as two sewing machines.

And there's a completely different thrift store within walking distance of my own home, where a number of years ago I scored four Harris tweed jackets plus an Aran-knit sweater for just about $17.00 total, sales tax included. (Of course, that *was* years ago, so it's harder to do today.)

Isaac just got a book called they boys survival guide - how to survive anything. Not only does it have recommendations for how to survive shark attacks, house fires, and alien invasions, but it also has zombie attack advice. (It mad me think of you as he told me about it)

Apparently one must rip their clothes, not bend their knees while walking slowly, and open their eyes really wide and drool. (since everyone knows zombies don't attack each other.)

I upset him/blew his mind when I told him the zombies in zombieland can run really fast etc. Then we had a debate about whether or not fast zombies were a Hollywood invention, and whether his survival plan would still work.......... He was not really open to the idea that ALL zombie lore was technically invented and as such an accurate survival plan was sketchy at best.

*chuckle* I think Issac may be the reincarnation of my husband...wait...how does one reincarnate when one is still alive?

*boggles*

*shrug*

Needless to say, hubby thinks fast zombies are both illogical and scary as hell. *grin*

PS: The husband got ‘A Boys Survival Guide’ from his mom last year for Christmas…

The zombies in zombieland are technically not dead, so I guess that's how they got around it, I think it was a variation of mad cows disease? Anyway, I do find my son's attempt to apply logic to zombies funny........ Admittedly, I am annoyed that a whole generation of people think vampires sparkle in the sun, so he does come by it honestly.

Of course vampires sparkle, right before they *burst into FLAMES*!

*eh hem* Sorry, habit.
