Zombies on my brain (and it is delicious)

As usual, BlindIrishPirate's recent post about zombies stuck with me and got my cranial juices flowing (she can always get my juices flowing...). Then, this post at Cracked didn't help matters. Did I ever tell you that Husband and I have an escape plan in place in case of a zombie apocalypse? It involves big guns and my parents' isolated country farm (we haven't yet developed a contingency plan, should my parents move to town...).

As a general rule, I don't like zombies. Or, to clarify, I don't like fast zombies. I can barely shuffle from the couch to the fridge and back without getting winded. How am I going to escape a brain-hungry undead being that runs like a cheetah hopped up on meth?

Slow zombies, now those are more my speed. I think that's why I love Shaun of the Dead so much. It's a rom-zom-com (romantic zombie comedy) that is both hilarious, heartwarming, and non-threatening. Possibly Husband and my favorite movie of all time. Something we can really sink our teeth into.

You guys should watch Zombieland. I fully endorse that movie.

Actually, your post reminded me that rule #1 of Zombieland is Cardio.

For sure - we loved it! They were fast zombies, unfortunately, but Bill Murray totally made up for that! LOVED!
