have you heard of the show, doomsday preppers? it's on the national geographic channel. and i can't wait for it to start. not that we have cable. i'm hoping my generous momma will record it (dvr?? is that what the kids are doing these days?) for me....and... make me dinner while i watch it. truth is, more than likely both of those things will happen...because i'm the youngest child. and she loves me. waaaay more than my siblings. sorry, guys, but it's a fact.
but i digress.
so here's the deal.
i'm obsessed with all things apocalyptic. zombie films, in particular, but i definitely won't thumb my nose at a movie like contagion, or tv shows like, jericho or the colony. freaking crap those shows freak me out. in an awesome way, you know? the boss and i love to imagine we're in that situation-we try to assess how we'd come up with a way to filter water...defend our homestead...or...create fuel from a pig's decomposing carcass (second season of the colony. watch it. near a bathroom so you can puke. and then watch it again. brilliant).
the truth is, though, if the zombie apocalyse were to come tomorrow, i'd be kindda screwed. aside from my vast zombie film watching experience (crash course: zombies=bad. they'll attack when you're feeling most comfortable. hit them in the head and you'll kill them. if they bite you, your best friend/spouse is going to have to shoot you. no hard feelings.), i'm not so sure how i'd measure up.
which brings me to the point.
i'm making a goal to get more prepared for emergencies (weather/nature/zombie-related...whathave you).
don't worry, i don't plan on stockpiling forsythia (ahhh...contagion, why am i still thinking about you 3 weeks after i watched you??)...but i have a feeling, things might get all sorts of crazy up in here.
and i'm kind of
