Z is for Zombie Hunter Extraordinaire – An Ode to Daryl Dixon- #atozchallenge

Posted by on Apr 30, 2013 in #AtoZChallenge, Entertainment, Hero Worship, Nerd Lovin', Zombies | 2 comments

@teefury #walkingdead shirThis is it, my finally post in the #atozchallenge. I bet you knew it was going to be about zombies, well it is, sort of. It is about Daryl Dixon of The Walking Dead. I am, big surprise here, a huge Walking Dead fangirl both in show and comic consumption. I love Daryl! He is nowhere in the comic and whose character was created solely for the purpose of driving the plot forward for the cable series. It was probably one of the most brilliant decisions they have made on the show.

He is not gone right now, and even when he is .. his scent, his presence with each dirty sock I find, and each ring on the coffee table, with each love note he tucks into my apron pockets or under my Kindle while I sleep. He is here.. I am so grateful he was patient today while I finished all this insanity up. And how patient he has been these last few months. My final numbers for both A-THONS can be found HERE for the Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon and HERE for the Blogathon2. Now off I go to play with him albeit it late it is our weekend time!

Don’t call me Ishmael! – Musing Mondays

Posted by on Apr 2, 2012 in Books, Hero Worship, Musing Mondays, Reading | 6 comments

Musing Mondays {April 2}

Musing Mondays is a weekly event hosted by MizB at Should Be ReadingEach week MizB asks a book related question and bloggers answer with their thoughts about the given topic.

This week’s musing asks…

Do you belong to any book clubs — face-to-face, or online? If so, how long have you been with the group(s)? If not, why?

I do not belong to a book club online or otherwise. The only time I have belonged to one is the first One Book One Tweet #1b1t by Crowdsourcing Which is now over at the Atlantic and at twitter under @1book140. It was their first one, it was experimental and it died because of summer. I met a lot of great people all over the world, but it was really hard to keep straight plus I was trying to finish my spring semester to book. Also there was the  expression or critique or questions  in 140 characters or less. We all know I have a problem with that.

It was May 2011, the first book was American Gods by Neil Gaiman. The highlight of this frustrating approach, albeit  evocative, was when we got to have a live tweet session with @neilhimself
