Zombie Survival Guide

Some times I start thinking that books like "The Zombie Survival Guide" were written in the future and sent back to us as a warning. I start to get the feeling that I need to read it and others like it, and genuinely begin preparing for these catastrophes that are coming.

Then I remember that I am a rational being and that's all just silly.

Or is it...?

Book I'm excited to Read

The Devil's Mixtape by Mary Borsellino

It's about three separate girls in different time periods who share a common legacy. I don't know too much about it, only what's in the amazon book description, but I've heard great things about it. Also the author is Australian and every single book I've ever read that was written by an Australian as been beautiful, insightful,  and awe inspiring.

Two of my favorite books of all time: Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta and Son of the Shadows by Juliet Marillier are both written by awesome Australian ladies. I want to go there so I can soak up the creative juices.

Anyway, I'm excited about it.

Ode to a Kitty Cat

Oh you most elusive of creatures
Won't you please come visit me
I see you in the parking lot
You taunt me with your snarky disdainful eyes

I saw you climb on my window
One night while I struggled with sleep
I went to the door to try to catch you
But you had already slipped away to greener pastures

Oh elusive kitty
I will feed you the best foods
I will pet you when you want
and leave you alone when you want

I see you running underneath the cars
I wonder to whom do you belong
Is it one of my neighbors
Or the grand notion of adventure?

Oh little orange creature
Please don't run from me
Let me offer you my affection and regard
I long for a kitty companion of my own
