Aerin I have no zombie kit! Must rectify immediately...


message 2: by Kat Kennedy (new)

Kat Kennedy Yes, Aerin! You have to be prepared for these things! It's simply negligence and a passivity towards survival NOT to have a zombie kit ready and on the go.

Penny I love that you have a zombie kit. Such a hilarious/awesome/fun/incredibly practical idea. It's funny how plausible zombies seem to me now. Like, it really could happen. Now that I'm reading the zombie survival guide, I've found myself wondering about my chances of survival if zombies were to attack at any given moment.

Anyway, your book review made me think of a hilarious review of a nightstand that converts into a shield and weapon in case you're attacked by zombies at night. Check it out:

P.S. I love the bloggess.

Jami Hilarious! Probably the best review I've read. Two enthusiastic thumbs up! Now if you'll excuse me . . . it appears I have a zombie kit to prepare.


message 5: by Kat Kennedy (new)

Kat Kennedy Ah! Penny! That was freakin' hilarious! I need to get me a riot gun! Unfortunately that's not so legal in Australia...

I mean, given the heavy gun restrictions and their general lack of availability to the Australian population, I have deduced that in the event of a zombie apocalypse... we're FFFAAAAAAARKKKEDD!

Jami, I'm so glad that my review inspired you to prepare a Zombie Kit. There's no shame in being prepared for the worst! See you on the other side, my friend! When all those Naysayers of the Zombie apocalypse can say is, "Ggggrrrr... Brains!" and we're sipping mai tais, we'll SEE who's crazy, delusional and paranoid!

Okay, it will probably still be us because it'll be a Zombie Apocalypse... But at least crazy, delusional and paranoid pays off then!

Pickles We don't have a zombie kit (yet), but we totally had a survival plan for how we would defend our old house (what we would do, where we would hide, etc). Now that we're moving, we'll have to come up with a new plan. I just got my copy of The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection From the Living Dead yesterday and I'm going to have to read it soon. I've also had this book on my Amazon wish-list for a while. I want to buy it eventually.

While my husband doesn't truly believe in the eventuality of a Zombie Apocalypse, I'm more of a believer. LOL. They're creating living cells right now! It's only a matter of time. My husband does think that if the economy gets worse, we will be at risk from the people who are jobless, hungry, and desperate, so he's willing to go along with my zombie survival plans because they could work in that scenario, too.

Ian Gabogovinanana Kat, I don't have a zombie kit. What's in one? Do they have them in the middle aisle at Aldi?

Lily I thought I was the only one that thought of zombie kits...

I AM NOT ALONE!!!!!!


message 9: by Kat Kennedy (new)

Kat Kennedy No, Ian, alas they don't. But a zombie kit comprises of some basic weapons: cricket bat, shovel, (if you were in America is could also comprise of a shotgun)

Bottled water, canned food, leather jackets, pants, boots, flashlights, emergency flares, a gong, etc.

No, Lily. Definitely not alone.

Missy LaRae LOVE THIS I am going to totally buy this and give it away as gifts. I HEART zombies :-)


message 11: by Amanda (new)

Amanda The Book Slayer Kat I loved your review! It makes more sense to me about your Zombie kit after reading this review. :0) I don't have a Zombie kit but I do have a To Go Bag that is always accessible no matter where we go.


message 12: by Amanda (new)

Amanda The Book Slayer Oh hubby says this is a great book as well!


message 13: by Shelley (new)

Shelley In my area there is an abundance of two things, bars and cemeteries. My husband is convinced we're doomed.


message 14: by Kat Kennedy (new)

Kat Kennedy You are. I'm glad I got to know you before the apocalypse. Bless you and good luck.


message 15: by Shelley (new)

Shelley LOL, but nervously.


message 16: by Kat Kennedy (new)

Kat Kennedy I don't think they take us seriously, Archer. Much to their detriment.


message 17: by Kat Kennedy (new)

Kat Kennedy I do. I think it's pretty obvious that I have put a button load of thought into Zombies.


message 18: by Missy (last edited Apr 20, 2012 05:51AM) (new)

Missy LaRae Four flack vests, helmets, bats, and lots of guns and knives...... Our plan is to hop a ship, and terrorize the coast.... My bf and I have discussed this at length.


message 19: by Shelley (new)

Shelley I hadn't even thought of hopping a boat. Not a bad idea. Too bad my closest body of water is the Mississippi river. I'm pretty sure one day it will be the river water that will start the zombie apocalypse.


message 20: by Missy (new)

Missy LaRae @Shelley Yeah we've thought about it, hopping on a large yacht, then creating a floatilla of yachts and barges and ships..... We have our emergency plan firmly in place :-) Thankfully we live right on the Florida coast so there's no shortage of boats!

You may be right though, my bf works on a barge all day and they're dredging up the dirt to lay a pipeline, and the DIRT is contaminated so they have to put it on a barge and take it to a waste facility to dump. They can't just put it back in the river because it would contaminate the water.

Seriously.


Jennifer Bookworm Coalition Love this review! I too have discussed the possibility of a zombie apocalypse with my boyfriend and my best friend.... My boyfriend thinks I'm crazy and as a result of that, I will leave his ass to be eaten by zombies while my best friend and I make our escape!!


message 22: by Tricia (new)

Tricia Best review EVER! I have had so many zombie conversations with people, it borders on ridiculousness. It's nice to know I can let my freak flag fly amongst other....survival enthusiasts....yeah that sounds good.
Jennifer: I should have known YOU would comment on this! Being said best friend, I totally support everything in that statement! Just know that I will be substantially more careful with a Katana than I am with those cursed badminton rackets!


message 23: by ZA (new)

ZA Oh please tell us what is in your zombie kit!


message 24: by Tracy (new)

Tracy Oh my...loved this review. I think I need to make a zombie kit.


message 25: by Michael (new)

Michael Oh, Honorable Zombie Expert, do you have a favorite Zombie novel that you would recommend? This one's on my reading list, but I'm wondering if there is one that made it to 5 stars...


message 26: by Celine (new)

Celine Great idea!
Note to myself: Make zombie kit immediately (2)
You're brilliant!


message 27: by Desiree (new)

Desiree Please tell us what's in your zombie kit. Very eager to hear!


message 28: by Quinn (new)

Quinn If you're self-conscious about referring to your zombie kit, you always call it your 'bug-out' bag. basically the same thing, but you don't sound as crazy. lol.


message 29: by Sage (new)

Sage Hawk I think about it too and it's horrifying. My thought is to procure a weapon, food, and a body of water to boat into and avoid the walking dead. Surely they cannot swim. Other than that, my zombie kit is being carried by others who have one. So I'll take theirs.
