A little idea...

A little idea sprang into my head last night.  It's not a secret that I have sleep issues, so I take Ambien every night to get to sleep (please do not feel the need to comment on how bad this is for me unless you are my doctor).  Once I take my Ambien, I get a lot of ideas.  Sometimes these ideas aren't so great - like the time I decided to put all of our cereal into ziplock bags so it would be easier to have a single serving.  Or the time I thought it would be nice of me to volunteer to help an author edit their next book.  Thankfully I fell asleep before sending out that email.

But last night I think my idea was actually awesome.  I've kind of been on a zombie kick since The Walking Dead started.  Its my new favorite show and I'm basically obsessed.  I've been reading a few zombie books and watched a few zombie movies.  So what if, inspired by Presenting Lenore's Dystopian August, I did a zombie month?  Would anyone be halfway interested in that or would you all quit following me?  Some ideas I have are to review zombie books (of course), watch and review zombie movies, interview some zombie "experts", and post some photoshopped zombie pictures of me and the family.  Is it too narrow a focus for a whole month?  What do you think?  Interesting or another idea I should chalk up to an Ambien haze?


  1. I think a lot of people would find it interesting! I haven't read any zombie books, and I'd love to read some reviews.

  2. I'm not into zombies but I agree some amazing ideas can come out of lack of sleep :-)

  3. I have a few Zombie books on the shelf that do need to read. I think I would find some time to be apart of this crazy haze idea. Sounds simply wonderful.

    There is a new project starting in the blog-o-sphere that I want to get involved in, so spreading the word of greatness. I have a post up about Save a Tree, Read an E-Book.

  4. I think it sounds like a great idea! My husband loves The Walking Dead so he will probably read your zombie month blog posts too!

  5. That sounds awesome! I love zombies. :)

  6. I love it!! I love zombies! I was a zombie for Halloween. (Read: I didn't really dress up or care to do my make up.)

    This would be fun!

  7. I love your Ambien induced cereal organizing =).

    I'm not too big into zombies myself, but have to say that I saw the first part of The Walking Dead and I was surprised by how into it I was.

    When ever I start to turn up my nose at something I have to remind myself that I thought I wasn't interested in fantasy and magic until I read Harry Potter, vampires until I read Twilight and was sure I hated dystopian until I read The Hunger Games. I've certainly learned to trust that fantastic stories come from unexpected places. So in other words, what the heck, bring on the zombies.

    I'm curious about The Forest of Hands and Teeth and the sequel The Dead Tossed Waves. If you don't think people would be up for a whole zombie month, maybe zombie week?

  8. me loves zombies. i would be interested in participating in your May Zombies.

    fyi: i'm having a mini-weekend of January Zombies, Jan 21-23, come by for some nom noms ;-D

  9. I don't know anything about this show. Is it scary? Zombies can be a great metaphor for anything from communists to fundamentalist Christians.
