you know you are addicted to the internet when it goes down and you have no idea what to do with your spare time...
i had like a pile of books that i was supposed to be reading.
and a cowl i was crocheting.
and food that needs to be made...
a blog to write!
it was definitely tough.
but we are oh so glad to be back online!
(it's even sadder when you are trying to think of something to make for dinner...
"oh wait let me check... ah crap! i forgot i can't get on the internet. again. for like the 3rd time."
listening to music is one of my favorite things in the whole world.
(sometimes i wonder if it is because i wish i was more creative, so i live vicariously through those who actually have some musical talent...)
but we saw this "rock opera" open in rexburg back in april, and loved it.
so we went back tonight.
they were actually playing in idaho falls, so definitely moving up in the world...
tonight's was definitely better than the first time.
i was up late (not doing homework apparently) and was flipping through channels, when i stopped at the history channel. i hadn't watched it in, like years, so i thought i'd see what they had for me. zombies. yeah. the history channel??? yeah, i thought so too. but i did learn several good things about surviving the zombie apocalypse.
now i won't tell you all of my secrets, because if there is a zombie apocalypse, i need to have the heads-up on you to make sure that the zombies eat you first.
find what you need to make your own zombie survival kit here.
the best part was finding out that the CDC actually put out a statement about emergency preparedness in case of a zombie apocalypse. suffice it to say, i was impressed.
(don't judge, i wrote my senior research paper in high school on monsters. why do some lame research on drugs, sports and energy drinks when you can talk about vampires, werewolves and zombies??? and i wrote this paper before twilight. thank you very much.) the sad thing is that i am finding all of this cool stuff now, after i've already written the paper and done all of the research.
a quote from the CDC's website:
"if zombies did start roaming the streets, CDC would conduct an investigation much like any other disease outbreak. CDC would provide technical assistance to cities, states, or international partners dealing with a zombie infestation. this assistance might include consultation, lab testing and analysis, patient management and care, tracking of contacts, and infection control (including isolation and quarantine). it’s likely that an investigation of this scenario would seek to accomplish several goals: determine the cause of the illness, the source of the infection/virus/toxin, learn how it is transmitted and how readily it is spread, how to break the cycle of transmission and thus prevent further cases, and how patients can best be treated..."
i can sleep peacefully tonight knowing that the government is watching out for a zombie attack.
it's been keeping me up lately.
oh, and i'm going to try this.
