Christmas Wish List – Part 2

Some of you may not know this about me, but I am a huge Star Wars nerd.  I mean, I’m not a super geek or anything, but I grew up watching Stars Wars (likely where my initial love for Harrison Ford began, followed, of course, by Indiana Jones), I played Star Wars with my brother and cousins, I even have a crazy Chewbacca doll from when a Christmas when I was very little ….this one, actually:


Apparently, these dolls are worth a ton of money these days…especially if they have the ammo belts – WHICH MINE DOES!

And a few weeks ago, while in Florida, I got to meet Chewy himself.  It was an incredible moment for us both. 😉


NEW BEST FRIEND ALERT!!  We had a special moment.  The dude wookie and I are near soul mates.

So, for the past couple of years I have been wanting, desperately, a Han Solo cell phone case.  I mean, this is pretty much the coolest thing ever created.


FYI: I have a crappy Samsung Galaxy S4 (which I hate, btw)

I keep going to order one, but never do.  I have also been wanting, yet, it remains in my unshipped cart, a Daryl Dixon phone case.  Just because it looks super rad (and, of course, because it’s Daryl Dixon):


How fly would my shitty Samsung look wrapped up in leather and wings???

In the meantime, while I wait patiently for Santa to find me, if you see this guy around, will you send him my way?  PLEASE:






Warning….spoilers below.  But I am too beside myself (over a damn TV show) to give a crap!

WTF?  Shocked.  Blindsided.

I am without words.

If The Walking Dead Did Karaoke (Part 1)

Just for fun and because I’m bored, I thought it would be fun to post some songs that would be appropriate for the characters of The Walking Dead if they went to karaoke night.

Daryl Dixon – Brother Down (Sam Roberts)

Rick Grimes & The Governor (as the devil) – The Devil Went Down to Georgia (The Charlie Daniels Band)

Carl Grimes – Mama Who Bore Me (Spring Awakening)

Lori Grimes – Bitch (Meredith Brooks)

Rick, Daryl and the Gang (to the Governor) – We’re Not Gonna Take It (Twisted Sister) (PLUS THIS VIDEO IS AWESOME!!)

Carol (to Daryl) – On My Own (Les Mis)

Andrea – On My Own (Hedley)

Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse

Now that The Walking Dead has ended for the season (big BOO!!) I can finally sit down and share with you my plans for avoiding surviving the Zombie Apocalypse, aside from putting a chair against my door to keep them out.

In the event that my future BFF Norman Reedus (see here) is unavailable (as Daryl Dixon) with his cross bow
daryl-dixon-funny-zombie-pictures here are some other ideas that will save me from said Apocalypse:

– Lead zombies to treadmills. They’ll walk for infinity.

– Play Michael Jackson’s Thriller…because it’s awesome and all zombies should partake in the Thriller dance. It just makes sense.

– Play loudly Carly Rae Jepsom’s Call Me Maybe because that song is annoyingly catchy and it makes everyone want to join in and sing and dance.

– Ask zombies to “Use their words.” (That’ll stump ’em.)

– Introduce them to Alicia Silverstone’s The Kind Diet. (Vegan zombies don’t eat people.)

– Hug. More than likely the zombies are just having a bad day. And everybody likes a good hug.

– If you get bit by a zombie….pee on your wound (or, do as Joey and Chandler do and “step up” to pee on your friends) because, let’s face it, a zombie bite is probably the same as a jellyfish sting. Right?

– Do like Katniss What’s-her-head and sleep in a tree. Zombies can’t climb trees. They’re stuck on the treadmill, remember?

– Let George Clooney calm them down. That man could talk me into anything.

Um...what was I saying?

Um…what was I saying?

– Ask the zombies to decipher Shakespeare or to figure out a math equation. Zombies hate math.

– Invite zombies to partake in a chubby bunny contest. Maybe they’ll choke on their marshmallows.

– Send them on an Easter egg hunt but don’t hide any eggs. 🙂 (This works to keep children occupied well.)

Reasons Why Norman Reedus and I Should Be Friends

So, now that I’ve given in to Blair and Jesse suggesting I watch The Walking Dead, I’ve gotten over my fear of the Zombie Apocalypse taking over my home and I’m completely obsessed with addicted to obsessed with the show and am doing my best to play catch up with the episodes.

And can I just say that I’ve totally jumped on the Daryl Dixon bandwagon.

Well, there you have it….just a few reasons why Norman Reedus and I should definitely be friends.   The only reason I won’t be friends with him – this video:


He says “amazing” way too many times and y’all know how I feel about that: https://welcometosandyland.wordpress.com/2013/02/27/1875/   Tsk Tsk.

But Norman is still cool.
