This started as a typical morning. I got up, got the kids off to school and had a little breakfast before I sat down with my laptop to get some work done. As I was checking my emails on this beautiful, clear New Hampshire day, the power went out. Poof! And because I'm a Geek my first thought was "Skynet or Zombies?" Since my laptop was still happily humming away and had not turned on me, I decided Zombie Apocalypse. The eerie silence of my home settled around me and I tweeted my assessment of the situation. Within minutes, no seconds, I received answering tweets to make sure I was properly prepared. Old LPs, flamethrowers, cricket bats, shotguns, sunglasses. Twinkies and possibly a phone call to Will Smith because, duh, he's Will Smith were all required items. I mentally scanned my supplies, found I had more of those items on hand than you might think, and then the power came back. Dang, I was so ready to break out that flamethrower, but when the time comes I am good to go. What about you?
I am a Total Fan Girl. Not the crazy stalker kind, or the must dress like my favorite character even at Christmas dinner kind, just the normal kind. If there are spaceships, vampires, or swaggering heroes...I'm there.
