Zombie Survival Kit & Crew Blogfest

Our joyous excitement for The Walking Dead premiere on October 12th has reanimated another blogfest idea for the vivacious trio:

Zombie Apocalypse: Survival kit & Crew

Post date: Friday, October 10th (cause no one wants to post on show day!)

To help build your zombie apocalypse dream team and survival kit, you will need to pick ONE person and/or ONE item for each of the topics listed in the below categories.

(Items you already have on your person: undergarments, shirt, bottoms, socks, tennis shoes & a backpack. If you want special shoes and/or boots, jackets, belt, etc.; those are extra and will need to be listed for one of your items below.)

And since this bloghop is all about having fun, if you have kiddos, we can assume they are safely tucked away in a safe haven somewhere while we’re out in the world fighting off zombies so do not worry.

*The Walking Dead character is the only one that needs to be from a zombie themed entertainment outlet, but please feel free to choose characters from your other favorite books/movies/tv. They may or may not be zombie related. It's all up to you. Just let your imagination flow!

With the characters below, please include the book, movie & TV show your characters are from.

EYM - Express Yourself

Aug. 11-15: What is one thing Steampunk-ish you find fascinationg from books, TV, movies and/or the internet (i.e. fashion, mechanics, idea, etc)?



What a fun concept. Mechanical animals. I would love a pet made out of gears.

A coal powered animal would be marvelous! Fuel? It goes all day on a few pieces of coal and when it’s done, it disposes a diamond out its backside! A woman’s best friend, two “birds” on “stone”.

Is there something Steampunkish you love/like!!

EYM July & First in Aug

July 21-25: What are some fave items you have that bring you comfort and/or special memories?

Pictures. I LOVE my pictures. I can sit for hours looking thru old pictures and remembering those moments as if I was there again.

I also have a few of my brothers’ things that I adore.


July 28- Aug. 1: Who would you choose to portray you in a movie?

Jackie and I shared who we thought you be great to portray the other person just to bounce ideas off of each other. The person I chose for myself id Melissa McCarthy. My life is a walking sitcom at times and I think she would be great and hilarious playing me. Jackie said Kelly Overton who played Rikki (a werewolf & Alcide’s love interest) on True Blood. She says Kelly resembles me which is a huge compliment! Jackie also said Milla Jovovich cause of the kickbutt characters she portray. Totally compliment there too!!


Aug. 4-8: Who were your celebrity crushes when you were a teen?

In the 80’s & 90’s I had posters and pictures of all of my fave celebrities plastered from ceiling to floor on one wall.

Jared Leto, KNOTB, the London’s brothers, Keanu Reeves, Freddie Prince Jr., Rob Lowe, Kirk Cameron, River Phoenix, Johnny Depp, Luke Perry, Andrew Keegan. Marky Mark… err, I should really stop.

However, my top hotties from the 90’s have always been: Heath Ledger, Leo DiCaprio & Josh Hartnett (yes, I still drool)

Do you have any childhood celebrity crushes you wanna share with us?

EYM: Grade School Memories

July 14-18: What is a favorite grade school memory?

One of my favorite memories was the bicentennial of the United States. I remember we had to bring 200 of the same items to school. I brought 200 pennies. And then we made a collage out of what we brought using pictures we found in magazines that had to do with the growth of our nation in the 200 year span; technology, cities, currency, buildings, etc etc.

It is one of my favorite memories cause I won first place in my grade for the girls!! Go me!!

Plus... I rocked the 80's hair style!! No, unfortunately I don't have a pic...

What's your favorite grade school memory?!

EYM - Beloved Toys & WIP

June 30 – July 4: Did you have a beloved toy growing up? What was it?


I had lots of toys I absolutely adored growing up. But I think my most beloved of them all… my Cheer Bear Care Bear. Between my brother and I, I think we have a totally of 10 different bears when we were younger. And I’m happy to say, my mom saved them, and now my kids have them – tattered and all. They are as loved by my kids, just as they were by my brother and me.


July 7-11: In your WIP, what is the last line on pg. 42? Not a writer, then use a book of your liking.


From my WIP: Valhalla


** I sat there a moment, feeling the endorphins spread in my veins.

EYM & Top Ten Tuesday

EYM – Last three weeks


June 9-13: Use ONE adjective to describe yourself.



June 16-20: What the scariest movie you’ve watched or book you’ve read that made you unable to sleep?

Recently - The Conjuring – Yeah, that movie had me swearing at the TV and hiding behind my fingers!!

Before The Conjuring, the only other movie that wigged my ass out was The Fourth Kind – still the scariest movie I have ever seen, and trust me, I have watched A LOT of frightening, blood thirsty, horror fest movies in my life time. The Forth Kind made my husband and I sleep with the lights – no shit!! Aliens *shiver*


June 23-27: What’s the last book you read? If you want, please give a small review for us. How many stars, etc etc.

The last book I read (finished audiobook yesterday) was Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness. It only took me about 2 months to finish it cause, like the first book – Discovery of WitchesShadow of Night started off SO slow. However, I was hooked about ½ way thru!! It finished really well. If you are a history fanatic and love reading Elizabethan literature with witches, vamp and demons – this series is for you! WARNING – lots and lots of historian filler, very descriptive!! It even brings real life 16th century Elizabethans to life! ß Very interesting!
