This whole, “OMG the world is going to end on 12/21/12 !!11!!!1!”… “or maybe not” thing has made both of us a little testy. Geoff has mentioned in the past in references to other Doomsday predictions that also went nowhere that he was tempted to create Geoffrey’s Apocalyptic Passover Service, LLC.
There is a bit of a running joke about the subway vent in the King’s Chapel Burial Ground. Tourists ask about it on a fairly frequent basis. And one response that is sometimes given (but not by me) is that it is a zombie pit. It certainly does look as if someone is trying to keep everyone out, because they are. Or perhaps… keep something in. Heh, heh, heh.
In time for Halloween, the military put on a joint training exercise that features… a zombie attack. While I am amused to no end, I do respect the attempts by the government to get people interested in emergency preparedness by using zombies as a training tool. It’s just like what the CDC did not too long ago. And as Hurricane Sandy should be making apparent to everyone, some basic emergency preparedness is a good thing. I may get to spend some more time outside in the rain like I did for last year’s hurricane, trying to make sure people don’t drive into downed power lines. We’ll see.
Every so often as I’m browsing the job postings on Craig’s List I’ll pop over to the Free section and see just what little gems people are giving away. Sometimes people actually give away really good stuff. We got our wheelchair that way when Geoff was hurt and needed one.
Most of the time people post “Free Fill” or “Free Couch!!!!” Then there are posts like these. These are the interesting ones.
I received this email today and I immediately started cackling when I got to this photo. Naturally, I had to show it to Geoff. Also naturally, it was already sold out by the time I clicked through and got to Etsy. These people are Evil Geniuses.
To continue on our slightly macabre thread from yesterday, I’m following up with this story that popped up on Boston.com the other day. I am hoping that this one won’t generate the Google hits that yesterday’s post did. Traffic we like, really disturbing search terms bringing people here, not so much.
