* Last night, I dreamed that a friend of mine told me that she was a conservative. Then, she told me that she was going to a Sarah Palin rally and asked me if I wanted to come with. Bwuh?

* The night before that, I woke up from a dream, and I remembered thinking, "hey...this dream would make for a nice story idea." Did I write the dream down in the notebook I tucked under my bed for precisely that purpose as soon as I got up? No. Do I remember what I dreamed about? No. I guess that'll show me....

* It's going up to 85 degrees on Sunday! *squee* I love warm, summer weather!

* Somebody thought it would be cute to declare May 20th "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day" to protest Comedy Central's decision to censor the South Park episode that showed the prophet Mohammed in a teddy bear suit. It had so much potential for fail, and that's exactly what happened. I wandered over to the Facebook page this morning and looked at some of the photos posted there. I would say that a good 99.9% of the material is as bigoted as all get up. Yeah...being a bigot makes you guys look so "edgy."

I'm all for freedom of speech, but can we use some common sense here? (Link courtesy of [ profile] idiomagic)

* This meme is funny. Post a comment with your user handle, and a fictional character will write you a little love note.


* Other than that, not much has been going on with me. I've been busy with work, school work, exercise, and other outside stuff. I've been reading LJ sporadically, so if you think there's something I missed, sorry! Let me know in a comment.

I've been telling [ profile] doomsey for a couple of weeks now that I was going to write this story. I emailed it to him this evening and got a chuckle out of him, so it must have been amusing.

The story is a little over 1,000 words. Don't have a name for it yet.

I am a bad, bad person )

So...I'm thinking about submitting this story for my weekly writing challenge thingie. The problem is that I didn't get a lot of sleep last night and my head isn't on right today. Anybody want to read this and tell me if it's any good?

Where do these things come from? I swear...sometimes I write like I have something wrong with me... )

What can I say? I got bit by the writing bug again. This time, I got bit bad because it looks like I've got the start of a novel here. I've written something about this character before too. Hmmm...

Oh, by the way, [ profile] mrscake, I swiped the name of your dog. I hope you don't mind!

As I mentioned earlier, I joined two writing communities in order jump start my writing again. When I was in college, I was told a lot by my teachers that I was good at it (one professor actually photocopied my work once and handed it out as an example of what he wanted to see), but in past years, I've felt like I've been stagnating. I just didn't have anything creative to say. I think reading writing prompts periodically was just the kick in the pants I needed to pick it up again.

This one was a response to a writing prompt posted several days ago in [ profile] staringout. The prompt was: "Write about someone skipping something: a rock, a school day, a medication, work." The resulting story was kind of disturbing. I actually considered not posting it to my personal journal for a while there.

Somebody's went off their me-eds )

At the end of Blog Like It's the End of the World day, I mentioned that I had a story idea, and that one day I was going to sit down and start writing it. I might have mentioned that I was going to use a fictional LJ account to tell it. Well, last week, I sat down and worked on it. I must have done a shitload of writing because I just went over what I had written, and noticed that I enough material to tide me over until November. Eep! begins my little experiment in using LJ to tell a story. (By the way, has anybody even *done* this before?) The story can be found here.

My in-laws should know where the inspiration for this story came from...
nekosensei: (Default)
Yep...I made another one. [ profile] nastowrimo is geared towards people who would like to write something during National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), but don't have the time to dedicate to writing a novel in one month. How about writing a couple of new stories instead?
nekosensei: (Default)
Today, I've been practicing a little thing called Work Avoidance. I created a new writing community called [ profile] story_lines. If writing is your thing, come on over and check it out.

Oh...and if you like what you see and/or you have friends who would be interested in this, please pimp it out. The more the merrier.

It's midnight, and that means "Blog Like It's the End of the World Day" is over. least for me it is because I want to go to bed. I have random stuff that I want to do in the morning.

I hope whoever put this thing together does this again next year because that was kind of fun. If I had known a couple of days in advance, I probably would have come up with something a bit more sophisticated.

Oh...and in case you were wondering, [ profile] doomsey and I are very much alive. We have not been attacked and killed by the living dead. I informed [ profile] doomsey before he went to bed that I would "kill myself off" (figuratively), and then be right up. Mmm...braaains... My hubbie should have some entertaining reading to look forward to in the morning... seems that I've been hit with the writing bug lately, huh? Oh...and as [ profile] doomsey can attest after reading some of my scribblings from this weekend, I've recently discovered that killing off main characters is fun!

This is a personal friend of both [ profile] nekosensei and [ profile] doomsey. It is with great sadness and regret that I inform you that [ profile] nekosensei was found dead in her basement after the horrific events of July 13th. The whereabout of [ profile] doomsey are unknown, and it is believed that he has become infected. They were survived by their two cats, [ profile] cosettemonster and [ profile] arwenmonster, who were found huddling in a downstairs closet.

From the evidence in their home, it appears that [ profile] nekosensei and [ profile] doomsey were able to neutralize approximately thirty infected persons before succumbing to their fate. Another infected corpse was discovered outside of their residence.

Rest in Peace, [ profile] nekosensei and [ profile] doomsey...

I *knew* we should have gotten out of town this afternoon. Why didn't we? Our place is practically an anthill. It's crawling with zombies. We can hear them shuffling around upstairs and breaking stuff. They must have trashed the place! And the stench is unbearable! [ profile] doomsey and I are trying very hard not to gag.

Oh no! They must know that we're here. They're trying to break down both doors. They're at the windows too. Holy shit, they're strong!

I got my make-shift bat. I got my diet coke. They've battered down the door! HERE THEY COME!! Spray the motherfuckers until they die!!

nekosensei: (Default)
Gah! I should have grabbed that bottle of vodka that's sitting on the kitchen counter. I could use a drink to take the edge off...

I wished I had watched more zombie movies. The only one I have really seen is the original Night of the Living Dead. If I had seen more, I would probably have a better idea of what to do.


We are going to be so screwed...
nekosensei: (Default)
It's after dark. [ profile] doomsey and I have barricaded the door to the basement and the door that leads to outside. We have also sealed the windows leading into the basement. About a month ago, we had some people come in and drywall our garage. We took all the crap out of the garage and put it in the unfinished part of our basement. We haven't put any of the stuff back yet (neither have we painted), and it looks like our laziness paid off. We had a lot of wood, some nails, and a hammar. Maybe we're going to get through this after all. Heh heh.

Oh...and I have just made myself a nice strip of wood with nails sticking out it...and I also have a broken-off screwdriver. It's not much, but I believe I now have a weapon. Hmm...this might turn out to be better than a handy-dandy baseball bat that I've been talking about getting, but never got around to. I always figured that a good, sturdy baseball bat would come in handy in case of a home invasion. Besides...when feeling my physical safety is threatened, the idea of whaling on random shit makes me feel really good.

Let's see...we also have a nice pair of garden shears. Hmm...this might come in handy. I don't think the leaf blower is going to be of any use though. Does anybody out there know how one can "creatively" use a leaf blower as a method of home defense?

Oh God! I just heard footsteps upstairs. Oh...and just now something went crash. I think someone something took out the curio with all my knick-knacks in it. There went my lladros. On a good note, I think they got that annoying clock too...

*clutches her weapon*

Oh gross! Whatever it is up there, it smells foul!

The cats are not happy at all. They're both cowering because they know something is up. We opened up the closets earlier so that they have a place to hide. Oh...and the last thing we need is them freaking out, knocking something over, and letting the bozos upstairs know that we're here. If that happens, we're toast. I hate to say this, but maybe we shouldn't have taken them down here with us.

[ profile] doomsey and I are remaining dead silent. Whoever they are, I hope they move on. The zombies don't seem all that bright, so maybe they'll overlook us if we remain really really quiet.

It's going to be a looong night.
nekosensei: (Default)
Whew! [ profile] doomsey made it home safely from work. We have closed up the house and are currently hiding out in our basement with the cats. We're trying to make it look like the house is abandoned. Our neighborhood is completely deserted because most of our neighbors had the common sense to flee.

As you know by now, the country is being taken over by zombies. Our house is less than three blocks away from the cemetary. This is not good at all! We should have fled while we still had the chance. I'm not sure if we're going to survive the night!

This afternoon, I was messing around on my computer, when I was horrified to discover a lone zombie peeking in my windows, looking for signs of activity. Some bloggers have mentioned that they can be killed with either salt or a chemical present in coke. Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of salt, but I have a ton of diet coke (did I mention that I was a caffeine addict?). I ran to the kitchen, grabbed a can, and sprayed the fucker in the face when he tried to break into my house. He is now nothing more than a pile of grey goo by my doorstep. Nobody messes with the [ profile] nekosensei! I have five cases of diet coke stashed away in my basement. I'm hoping that this will help us survive this ordeal. For once in my life, I'm thanking God that I drink diet coke like there's no tomorrow.

[ profile] doomsey took a long time to get home, but fortunately, he made it through. I managed to sneak him into the house and downstairs without us being seen. Just a few minutes after he got in, I looked out my window and saw a group of maybe ten or fifteen people shuffling aimlessly down the street. It looks like they've been infected. Fortunately, I had the good sense to stay out of sight.

I'm going to go upstairs and peak outside again. Oh shit! Oh shit! Oh shit! I wish I could scream, but I'm afraid that they'll hear me. There's two zombies sitting on our patio. And they're gnawing on a severed leg! It's still got the tennis shoe on. And they're fighting over it and growling like they're wild animals or something. I'm struggling very hard not to throw up right now. Their faces are covered with blood and dirt. One of them has a trickle of blood running down his chin. Oh my! They dragged my next-door-neighbor out of his house. What are they doing to him? Oh God! Oh God! THEY'RE SAVAGES!! I want to go help, but they'll descend on me like a pack of wolves. *wrings her hands helplessly*

I'm a pacifist so I don't have any weapons. I'm really wishing I had a gun right now. [ profile] doomsey and I have grabbed some canned food and we're going back downstairs now. We're going to barricade the door. I wish everyone on LJ land luck. Stay safe! And whatever you do, keep the diet coke and salt handy!
