You may be aware that I am a fan of zombies. I find this to be a really embarrassing thing about myself, but I just can’t help it. I’ve seen many, many zombie movies, many of which are terrible, some of which are startlingly good.
I even read zombie literature. (Yes, there is such a thing.) And maybe a zombie blog.
I’m a geek.
All of this is to say that I am so excited to go to the Silver Spring Zombie Walk this Saturday. I’m not dressing up or anything, because I am not bold enough/completely geeky enough/badass enough/committed enough to do so.
But I’d like to invite you guys to go with me, because Alex is afraid of zombies and won’t go. Also, if he went, we’d have to take our kids with us, and even I am aware that dragging three small children out at 8:30 on a Saturday night to be assaulted by the living dead = bad parenting.
Who else wants to come? We can grab dinner or a drink in downtown Silver Spring before the zombies start to roam at 9:30. The zombies are watching Shaun of the Dead (one of my top five movies ever) at 10 at the AFI, but I’ll be heading home to work after the walk. And to post photos of the walk on my blog.
If you want to come, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll make a plan. If no one wants to go, I’ll feel really sad and unpopular, but don’t let that influence you.
So whaddya say? Who wants to get their zombie on?
