“I hear Barbie’s stuck-up. Those good-looking women—you can’t talk to them, nothing has truly been expected of them. Bo Peep, she works hard out there with those sheep, she lost one of them, so she knows what sacrifice is. She’s actually a much better conversationalist.”—Tom Hanks on why Barbie wasn’t in Toy Story.

My first foray into making plushies! Sorry the pics are so crappy, I still can’t find my camera so these are from my phone. I really like how he turned out though— he was a present for my dad’s birthday, which is today :) HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAPA!
I’ve been around for nearly half a century, yet still I’m afraid of everything and everyone. A child sits beside me on a plane and I make conversation, thinking how stupid I must sound. The downstairs neighbors invite me to a party and, after claiming that I have a previous engagement, I spend the entire evening confined to my bed, afraid to walk around because they might hear my footsteps. I do not know how to turn up the heat, send an e-mail, call the answering machine for my messages, or do anything even remotely creative with a chicken. Hugh takes care of all that, and when he’s out of town I eat like a wild animal, the meat still pink, with hair or feathers clinging to it. So is it any wonder that he runs from me? No matter how angry I get, it always comes down to this: I’m going to leave and then what? Move in with my dad? Thirty minutes of pure rage, and when I finally spot him I realize I’ve never been so happy to see anyone in my life.
‘There you are,’ I say. And when he asks where I have been, I answer honestly and tell him I was lost.
What is functional fitness? We think it is the ability to perform any given task, at anytime, quickly and efficiently. Functional fitness and situational awareness are necessary skills that are lacking in today’s society. ZombieFit hopes to change that.
What if you woke up tomorrow to find your city overridden with zombies, would you survive? This may seem childish, but by preparing for the impossible, you’ll be ready for the improbable.
The keys to surviving Z-day are simple: Be able to lift and throw heavy things, run fast and for long distances, and be able to navigate obstacles and urban environments in an efficient manner. By following the ZombieFit WODs (workout of the day) and practicing parkour, you will achieve increased fitness through the performance of functional movements at high intensity and find within yourself the internal discipline and mental fortitude necessary to become a traceur.
Our goal is to be instructive in functional fitness and the parkour ideology. We sincerely hope you learn something from this site. Whether you need zombies to motivate you, or just want a good workout/place to learn parkour, we’ll be able to help.
When I was little (like 8 or 9 maybe), I used to play a game called “What Would I Do If the Zombies Attacked?”, which was pretty simple to play. Anytime. Anywhere. The post office, grocery store, taking out the trash, watching my brother’s dumb soccer games, etc. I imagined if zombies attacked at that exact moment and what I would use for weapons.
Ex: ice arena. Zombies come out of the player entrances. Weapons? Hockey stick, puck, some skates if I could get my hands on some. I used to love to play that when I was bored! :)
I’d say you make a perfect Angel in the snow All crushed out on the way you are Better stop before it goes to far Don’t you know that I love you Sometimes I feel like only a cold still life That fell down here to lay beside you
Don’t you know that I love you Sometimes I feel like only a cold still life Only a frozen still life That fell down here to lay beside you
When you are studying for finals, and you take a break (to, I dunno, eat leftover Panda and watch The Time Traveler’s Wife, for example. I don’t know who does that though.), and then…later…you are surfing the ‘nets. And then a random phrase you were studying suddenly intrudes its way into your head. Like BACCOLITH (a large intrusive body! Like these phrases!). Or WELDED TUFF.
DAMN YOU GEOLOGY. I never wanted to actually LEARN anything from you!!
