Perth had one. Toronto is gearing up. And, soon, it’ll be Memphis’ turn.

Yes, it’s Zombie Walk time, when the Undead Community congregates, and lumbers through town, feasting on the brains of the living. Oddly, here in Memphis, the Walk is Downtown, nowhere near the local Apple Store. But, you can bet some of the walkers will be wearing their iPods as they mindlessly follow the crowd.

Pictures? Oh yes, there will be pictures.

Brains.

mefpod.jpgSo, last Friday, my wife and I were eating dinner together without kids. This probably hadn’t happened since Britney Spears was a virgin, and Hillary Clinton still had thin thighs. Yup; it had been quite a while. And, we were so enjoying eating without constant prattle about Hannah Montana or Star Wars light sabers.

Meg is a doctor, and was on-call that evening. As we were working on our sandwiches, she was paged by the hospital. It seems the brain dead (zombie?) at the nurses’ station needed a particular patient’s birthdate. “It’s in his chart, or your computer,” my wife replied. For reasons that still puzzle us, that wasn’t enough. “Dang,” my wife thought, “now I have to run home, get on my computer, just so I can read something to her that she is too lazy or stupid to look up.”

“So, any computer with Internet access will work, right?” I asked.

“Sure; but I don’t see a computer here,” she snapped back.

New Year’s Eve? It’s right upon us. So, in the spirit of this brain-munching website, we offer this recipe for your ring-a-ding-ding New Year.

The Classic Zombie Cocktail
1 oz light rum
1/2 oz creme de almond
1 1/2 oz sweet and sour mix
1/2 oz triple sec
1 1/2 oz orange juice
1/2 oz 151 proof rum

Shake all ingredients (except 151 proof rum) with ice and strain into a collins glass over ice cubes. Float the 151 proof rum on top, add a cherry (if desired), and serve.

There are variants on this theme, but, this seems both tasty, and classic. As 2008 is upon us, the Zombies will be trying to munch your brain; start the year by quaffing one of them!

It’s a cold day here in Germantown. But, despite the chill, hoards of brain-seeking Apple Zombies are converging on the local Apple Store.

‘Seems Steve’s vague promises of unspecified day-after-Thanksgiving savings on in-store items that may, or may not, be of use, had the Undead excited. You can see their expressionless faces as they emerge from the Store this morning. One zombie nearly looked me in the eye as I was taking this picture. Fortunately, a small shiny object, or the whiff of a fresh brain, diverted his attention, and I made my way out of the shopping center, brain intact.

Doubtless, zombies all over the country are making similar pilgrimages today. So, the malls are full of the Undead. Well, more full than usual, anyway.

Bon Appétit!

I had a nice lunch today — a tasty snack of brains. Sure, my status as an Apple Zombie is well-documented, but, my brain-numbed mission to get Hannah Montana tickets is another matter, indeed.

If you have a pre-teen daughter, you know more than you would like about Miley Cyrus, and her annoying pop music-singing alter-ego, Hannah Montana. You, like me, can’t walk through the house withou220px-hm_title_card.jpgt hearing your daughter sing one of Hannah’s squeaky-clean tunes (does Miley even play an instrument?). But, alas, unless you’re willing to pony up a few hundred bucks with StubHub or eBay, getting tickets for her concert was simply impossible. Just ask the thousands of exceedingly-peeved parents, and state attorneys general who believe some underhanded shenanigans brought those tickets preferentially into the hands of scalpers.

So, yesterday, it was announced that a few more Hannah tickets for Memphis would go on sale today, at exactly 12 noon. “Why bother,” I thought, forgetting that as a Hannah Zombie, I had no choice but to try to snag a set. Still, I happened to be in front of my iMac at noon today (See? There is an Apple connection, after all), and gave it a shot. Amazing but true… I got four nose-bleed tickets at 12:03pm. This makes me — The Best Daddy in the World!

So, next Thursday, I’ll fortify myself with the brains of the living, and trek down to FedEx Forum for the show. I would rather stick knitting needles in my ears than endure the show, but, it’s a Daddy-Daughter thing. Wait… knitting needles in ears and Hannah Montana. Same thing, right?

Brains…
