Going to see Max Brooks tonight, How did I prepare?

Look, I finished my second knitty Foliage hat! That's not why I'm screaming.

Don't you see the freaking zombies? Lumbering, slowly, with dislocated shoulders and one leg dragging, flannel shirts askew pastey skin, well, the color of most people in Michigan.

It was cool, I stayed calm. I know zombies move slow. I had plenty of time to combat some other more pressing issues...

Then I got out the Lobotomizer Bessie and got down to business.

It was messy, but really, how can we have Max Brooks come to town and have the place teaming with the reanimated corpses? That would just be lame.

So, besides my normal trail of dead, how will you recognize me at

You totally have to wear the shirt and the hat! I'm sure he'll pick you right out of the crowd! Have fun!

Bring him a ZPDK t-shirt! Get a picture! Even if he just holds it up, how cool would that be?!

I've worked it out so I can go. I might be a bit late, depending on David's schedule, but I'll be there. I hope I can find my shirt . . .
