Things That Make Me Snarf - Zombies on Ice

I really need to move back to Chicago, because that's where this week's Thing That Makes Me Snarf took place.



As Slayer told me earlier today, it's a good thing that the Batgirl versus ninjas option is winning in the poll, because the dress-up-like-a-zombie thing is being done en masse and on ice skates. Strangely enough, I had debated ice skating in the Superzombiegirl getup but decided that there's a limit to the level of humiliation I'm willing to endure. Because for some reason, I can ice skate backwards but not forwards.

At least I'm better at it than I am at skiing.

Short entry today. Am dead from the hips down. This has nothing to do with a freak ice-skating zombie attack and everything to do with my personal trainer.

You have a personal trainer! Don't know why but that I do kind of find funny ;-) I just associate personal trainers with people like Britney Spears, and comparing you to Britney just seems funny! Especially since I'm not her biggest fan.

my wife's cousin was a personal trainer for Bruce Willis in the 80's. Now he is a head strength coach at a big 12 school. He is also 14 years older than me and in much better shape.

I saw that zombie ice skating clip on the news! It did make me giggle!

Hooray for Zombies!

Ha! The father-daughter zombies were too much!
Hope you feel better.

Zombies...on ice?


God, this makes me want to move back to Chicago - home of my youth and all.

Big Plain V said...

Wait, I'm confused. Were these real zombies? How did they all die?

Are they coming to Michigan?

Catherine J Gardner said...

Too much fun. :)

Hey, you're ahead of me. I can't ice skate frontwards or backwards. The ice loves me face. A lot.

I think if I tried to ice skate again, I would turn into a zombie. One with lots of ice burns.

Have you tried skiing backwards?

Just wondering :-)

Trainer: Yes I have two -- although they're not personal -- they drive the trains I ride downtown and back home. ("Trainer" is your word for a train engineer I assume.)

Zombie on ice: Didn't watch but is Gov. B featured in it?

Moving to Chicago: Great writing community, but not sure if any of us ice skate.

Sure, blame it on your personal trainer :P Snarftastic Zombies on ice!! Only went ice skating once when I was little and the ice loved to meet my butt.

I knew there was a reason why I moved away from there. Whew! I made it just in time.

bake your pt a big batch of cookies for Christmas. That'll slow'em down!

That video made me want to be a zombie. Think about it. I bet zombies don't have to work. I bet they don't have to pay bills. Or do revisions. Or be responsible for anything. Zombies probably just zombie around all day long in their zombie clothes on their zombie skates and simply slide, dazed, through through their entire zombie lives.

I could get into that.

Funny one.. :) Good luck with the personal trainer and soreness. :)

Tabitha said...

Too funny! I took my kids ice skating there last winter, but we haven't gone yet this year. Though with all the cold and snow so early, we'll be able to skate on the sidewalk pretty soon. :(

Greetings, citizen. As a smiter of evil and crimefighter at large, I would like to offer you my sincerest thanks for the pointing out of the zombies on the ice and all.

It is as I feared. Lord Ed-Undead is operating out of Chicago. He is clearly using his evil influence over those of the gothic persuasion to cause them to die and then supernaturally resurrecting them and setting them free to ice skate amok. I have been searching for signs of Lord Ed-Undead ever since our last battle in the ballpit of the Chuck-E-Cheese in Boise, Idaho. We fought to a stalemate that day, but I was able to thwart his plans to replace all the pepperonis with small circular bits of discarded zombie flesh.

But I digress.

I have said all that to say this. Thank you for your assistance in locating this criminal mastermind. If more people were as upstanding and conscientious and morally glittery as you, then our world would not be the dim place that it sometimes is and sometimes isn't but usually has the potential of being unless one is exceptionally cheery which I am not and neither, obviously, are you.

Take care, citizen. Keep up the good fight.

Every time I snarf, I have to use a kleenex. I don't think I'm doing it right. Or maybe I should stop snarfing while drinking.

P.S. the word verification I had to type is tisplest. Which, ironically, is sort of like the sound I make when snarfing.

I'm so glad that was filmed in black and white!

Ice skating. Zombies. Why didn't I see the connection before? It's like chocolate and peanut butter!
