So I’m trying — trying! — to get my articles about the Fight the Bite workshop written and up on ICoS. I want to get all the articles out there before people forget! Part 1 went up on Monday (link here), and Part 2 went up today (link here). I’m trying to get Part 3 up for Friday. Besides, it’s a workshop about the zombie apocalypse; what better time to get these posts up than on and around Halloween? Exactly.
Anyway. The Fight the Bite workshop is a zombie apocalypse survival workshop offered by The Forge Western Martial Arts. Well, okay, it’s a self-defense workshop. But what you learn in it can help save you in the event of a zombie apocalypse. So really, it’s just a good workshop to take.
I learned a lot of things during the classes (it’s a two-part workshop), but there’s too much stuff to go into here. This is why there are three different articles going up on In Case of Survival.
And I didn’t really get my ass kicked. But let’s just say that even a padded floor can hurt.
I hope to get caught up next week, and get back on track with my book reviews. Stay tuned!
So I have, unfortunately, fallen a bit behind with my blogging! I’ve got a few book reviews I need to write, other books to read, and a pile of other things I need to write (like my articles about the zombie apocalypse survival workshop I took).
I wasn’t feeling that great last weekend, so my plans to catch up fell by the wayside, as plans often do. (I may or may not have had too much wine Saturday night and may or may not have spent all day Sunday wondering when snow got so loud. I’ll never tell.) So now I’m still playing catch up.
Please bear with me as I unbury myself from the pile of virtual paper and get caught up on everything! In the meantime, head over to In Case of Survival to read the first post in my post series about Fight the Bite, the workshop from The Forge Western Martial Arts.
A while ago, I came up with a zombie apocalypse nursery rhyme. (Yes, I posted it on ICoS. Because of course I did.) What if you came up with some apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic nursery rhymes, and I compiled them? I think that would be fun; I can turn it into a PDF and send it to everyone who wrote a nursery rhyme. What do you think?
To get your creative juices flowing, here’s mine:
NOTE: This post was originally published on In Case of Survival in February 2012. I really quite like it, which is why I’m reposting it here.
I watch a lot of science fiction. I read a lot of science fiction, too, but I grew up watching Star Trek and Stargate.
Yes, I’m a geek. (It’s okay, you can say it. It’s not like it’s a secret or anything.)
I realized recently that I’ve learned a few things from my steady diet of space battles. (One of them is that regardless of space being a giant vacuum, explosions will always sound…well, like big explosions. Always.) Hopefully those things will even help me post-apocalypse, but only time — and the apocalypse — will tell.
I’m concentrating on TV shows here, otherwise this post will turn into a novel. Or at least a thesis paper. (Hmm…might not be a bad thesis topic.)
Anyway. So, what have I learned from watching science fiction? Well, it depends on the show.
NOTE: A Twitter acquaintance, Tammy, made a special request for a post-apocalyptic dating post. And since I try to accommodate people if and when I can, here’s a post-apocalyptic dating post! (Kids, take note: you get things when you ask nicely.)
Anyway. This particular post is a (slightly revised) combination of two posts that were originally posted on In Case of Survival last year. Enjoy!
Post-apocalypse dating: The species
In the post-apocalypse, relationship rules will change. For one thing, there will likely no longer be online dating sites, since there will likely no longer be an Internet. And then there are all those other considerations: Will you date someone from your band of survivors? Will you date someone from another band of survivors? Did your band of survivors trade you for a week’s supply of food and water? Did you trade yourself for that week’s supply because the other guys have more food, so you’ll be better off with them than with your current group? Will you be dating a human? Is that human alive or (un)dead?
As to who (or what) you could be dating or spending the rest of your life with, here are a few possibilities:
