Day 74: (Water) Walking D(r)ead

  In tandem with my adventure-filled walks [otherwise known as The Walking D(r)ead], today I tried water walking. The main difference? You don’t sweat! Or, at least, you don’t know if you sweat, because it’s awfully hard to separate pool water from the water your body’s secreted. I know. Gross. The other difference? I also […]

Day 67: Walking D(r)ead

Remember my post about training for a 5k? It’s hard to try to run in cold, icy conditions when you’re a gimp, so I figured I’d try to keep the momentum by walking. (When I’m ready to pound the pavement again I might invest in the Zombies, Run! 5k training app. It’s supposed make working […]

Day 66: Having an “I Shoulda Listened to Daryl” Moment

Well, Daryl and I (and a bunch of friends) had our moonshine date.  It was during the episode titled…sniff…”Alone.” Knife in eye = 1 shot Head lopped off= 2 shots. Each time Beth said something about how good people are = 3 shots. [Note: We quickly abandoned this one; otherwise we would’ve been out cold […]

Day 65: Learning Icelandic

Day 61: Drinkin’ Moonshine with Daryl

After watching “Still,” the Walking Dead episode where Daryl dishes about his pre-turn existence (or lack thereof) and Beth expresses her fantasies about him being a prison guard, I became interested in their potent potable of choice: Moonshine. As much as I’d like to say I hopped in a pickup and drove through the deep […]

Day 26: Reading the Walking Dead Comics

I’m a fan of the show but have never read the comics…until today, when I bravely started my apocalyptic journey. I knew that Daryl was a creation specifically for the TV series and is absent from the books (which are still being written).  I also learned at Comic-con that Kirkman has no plans to introduce […]
