5 Friends You Need to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse

I've been watching zombie movies lately and it's got me thinking about how to survive the Zombie Apocalypse.  There are lots of tips about what you should and shouldn't do but not a lot on who you need to know which I think is half the battle.  If your friends don't have the right skills, then they're just going to slow you down and *pow* you're zombie meat.  So I give you the 5 people you need to make friends with now if you want to survive the zombie apocalypse later.

The Irish, Kilts and Bagpipes


I have mentioned my fascination with men in kilts at Cons.  Since I first started talking about this phenomenon I have had explanations presented by men around the world.  Oddly, I don't think any of them were Scottish which is another mystery to solve.  Any Scotttish guys out there want to tackle that one?  At Cons there does no one wear a kilt because it's too common?  So many questions.

Shaun of the Dead, Zombies and Twinkies

I love getting scared at the movies.  Not so badly that I can't sleep for a month (I Am Legend) but just enough so that I am tempted to leave an extra light on when I go to bed for a few nights.  And I'm particularly fond of zombie movies.  I love seeing how everyone is either going to save themselves or be bitten and have to choose between being a zombie or ending it all with a shotgun.

Geek Moms Unite!

cross posted on geekgirlsnetwork.com

geek momGeek Dads are everywhere and they're easy to spot.  They're the ones playing games or maybe talking about Star Wars or Star Trek while other guys are talking sports.  They know all the Bakugan brawlers and can explain how best to play each and every one but they probably don't have a Fantasy Football team.  They insert awesome geek references into everyday conversations and other Geek Dads smile and nod their approval.  And they aren't afraid to have fun at the expense of their own dignity.  Give your average bunch of Geek Dads a room full of kids wielding plastic lightsabers and you're going to have a room full of kids running to their moms to make their dads give back those lightsabers.
But what about Geek Moms?
