Oh yeah. Labor Day. That's right. So, I'm off to a slow start this week. It can only get better, right? Since I have nothing for you of my own I'll pass along two links that I followed from boingboing. I know, I'm so kick-ass original.
The first is not for the squeamish. And that includes me. I didn't get past the first page* . It's a place where people can go and share photos of their horrible, horrible scars and tell the bunny hugging, sunshine filled stories behind them. Oh, and you can rate the scars as well. Does it get any better?
The next is an online massive multiplayer web-based game involving zombies.
Those of you who know me would probably figure this is right up my alley. You would likely be correct if I were to give it a chance, but I'm afraid to. Not because I'm afraid of the game. I'm afraid of another non-productive activity sucking the last of my free time away like a delicious chocolate shake disappearing up a silly straw. Just reading the forum chatter about it on All Things Zombie got me wanting to play.
Must... hold... out... Burnout Revenge is only (knock-on-wood) a week away. Yes, that's also non-productive, but it's going to be oh so enjoyable!
Anyhow, if you feel like seeing if you have what it takes to withstand hordes of undead without actually having to, give it a shot and let me know what you think. The last page on the forum link makes it sound pretty bleak for the survivors. As it should be.
*Just in case you all might see something different, I refreshed the page. Yep, sure enough, some wimpy scar showed up. Just so you don't think I'm a total wuss I feel I must say that the first one I saw was someone's fingers that had been through a bandsaw. Ugh.
