Oh, this Twinkie thing, it ain't over yet.

Finally I got to watch Zombieland. This is kind of, sort of a movie review and has no business being on the is blog. But only 2 people read this one, so I'm thinking even less read View of Sue, I haven't posted there since May.
But I have an unhealthy fixation on Zombies and feel compelled to warn the world or the 2 people that read my blog, of impending doom.
Since I don't believe in coincidences, my frightful weekly trip to WalMart has lead me to the realization that we haven't much time. Learn these rules and know them well:
  1. Cardio
  2. Double tap
  3. Beware of bathrooms
  4. Wear seatbelts
  5. Cast iron skillet
  6. Travel light
  7. Get a kickass partner
  8. Bounty paper towels
  9. Bowling Ball
  10. Don't be a hero
  11. Limber up
  12. Avoid strip clubs
  13. When in doubt, know your way out
  14. The buddy system
  15. Check the back seat
  16. Enjoy the little things
I do know how to count to 10, this is a list from a Zombieland website. The character, Columbus has a list of zombie survival rules he came up with that helped him survive the zombie apocalypse hence becoming one of the very few survivors in America. Not all rules were mentioned, these are the ones that were.
Woody Harrelson plays Tallahassee and this is where I got spooked. Tallahassee is in search of a Twinkie, throughout the whole movie he's looking for the last Twinkie in America. The rest of the world is just not mentioned in this movie. They are either going through their own zombie apocalypse, continent by continent or the good ol' U.S. of A is on their own as usual.
Let's get back to the Twinkie. I finally get these boys of mine to watch Zombieland with me after we got rid of the husband for the night. He had to work late but refuses to watch Zombie movies, he's going to be the first to fall prey I fear. I thought it would be funny to buy a box of Twinkies while shopping today. Aisle after aisle I filled my shopping cart with the essentials, bread, milk, Pepsi, a head of lettuce, dog treats, Peach Daiquiri with alcohol in it that you just freeze and enjoy, cheese, hamburgers, and the list goes on for a weeks worth of food. All the while keeping an eye open for Twinkies. I doubled back and back again, "Where's the effing Twinkies?"
I've come to the conclusion that people are stock piling Twinkies,
coincidence, I think not.
This is Reminderville, Ohio saying good night.

Carol - I'll be heading to Texas on my post apocalyptic search for Twinkies, save me one. Just in case you're a zombie what street do you live on?

And, speaking of peach daiquiris, did you know that every time someone (well, me) leaves a comment here on your blog they soon get a letter from "postmaster" saying their email can't be delivered? And we haven't sent you an email, only made a comment? Hmmmm. Also a sign of Zombies, if you ask me.

I'm guessing it may be time to go to your Blogger settings and either turn of the thing where you get an email notification, or put in a corrected email address for yourself there.

If that doesn't work, and you need an exorcism, either my newly ordained self of vicar Ezra can oblige. Think nothing of it.

That was my very first email ever. I wonder what that's still doing there?
