And happy new year, as well! I’ve taken a good hard look at this blog and have decided that it has morphed into something not very Marcilicious in recent months. I mean, who wants to just read about all the things I’ve done, places I’ve gone, and people I’ve seen? Right. So, I’m assuming that, like me, you’re much more interested in other things…like zombie apocalypse readiness. Or, like me, maybe you’re just missing fresh episodes of “The Walking Dead” (damn, you mid-season slump!). To lessen the withdrawal symptoms, I’ve been watching the “Resident Evil” movies, but I only watch one a week because I get DVDs one at a time from Netfarts. But at that rate, The Walking Dead will be back before I know it.
In the meantime, I’ve declared this week Unofficial Zombie Apocalypse Preparedness Awareness Week! Never mind that it’s Wednesday and the week started on Sunday – it’s never to late to brush up on your zombie readiness tactics; that is, unless, you find yourself in the middle of a Level 2 zombie infestation and you are not prepared. So, really, I guess its never to *soon* to brush up on your zombie readiness tactics.
So let’s start. Take a look at Figure 1, below:
It’s time to make some tough decisions. When the zombie apocalypse comes a-knockin’, what will you do? Most people will ultimately serve as screaming brain-stuffed appetizers prior to the main course of screaming brain-stuffed entree. I, for one, will choose not to be in the red zone. I will not divulge my zombie resistance survival plan here, but I strongly suggest you read “The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks, poste haste! You will want to be prepared, and if you can’t be a badass (see Figure 2):
…or if you don’t have the resources for genius (see Figure 3):
…then I suggest you start reading right away. You can also attempt to desensitize yourself by watching zombie movies as well. Some of my favorites are Shaun of the Dead (of course), Tokyo Zombie, and RoboGeisha (which is not a zombie movie, but I came across it when I found Tokyo Zombie). And, because they’re worth mentioning again, Resident Evil and The Walking Dead will provide invaluable information on how to survive the zombie plague.
Good luck, my friends, let me know how things turn out for you!
