Welcome to Day 1 of our (Carol and I) celebration! First up to the chopping block is none other than Amanda Ashby, the Queen of Zombies!
How did you become a zombie?
Long story short there was this stupid girl who thought she was doing a love spell but actually did something entirely different and in the process turned everyone in the area into zombies. Yeah, I know, talk about bad freaking luck. And the worst thing was that I had just bought some seriously cute shoes. I mean they were red and shiny and looked all sorts of great with my skinny jeans, but can you wear cute, red, shiny shoes with your skinny jeans when you’re a zombie? No, you cannot, but don’t get me started on lack of basic motor skills because it will only get me angry (and you know what they say, after anger comes the hunger!)
How did you come out of your grave? Were you scared when you woke up and found yourself buried 6ft under?
Grave? I dream of a grave since at least I would’ve had my five minutes of fame for being dead, but nope, I got nothing. One minute I was normal and then the next minute I wanted to eat fingers. Where’s the justice?
Do you think being intelligent is a good trait?
No way – intelligence is totally over-rated. I mean look at me, I’m not clever and I turned out just fine – apart from the whole zombie thing of course.
How do you get smart? Do you like to eat brains?
Okay, so I’m going to let you in on a little known zombie fact but the whole brains thing? Total myth and if truth be told they give us indigestion. Now, fingers on the other hand – delicious.
What about flesh in general?
Yup – big fan!
Do you prefer to eat humans or animals or zombies or you don't discriminate?
Humans – yes – though not the smelly ones because really a girl needs to have some rules.
As for animals, that’s a big no mainly because of all the fur involved. I mean flossing is hard enough at the best of times but throw in the bad motor skills as previously mentioned and it turns into a disaster waiting to happen (in fact if I still had my eyeballs in tact I probably would’ve taken one out by accident).
And finally I can assure you that I would never eat another zombie even if you paid me. Nothing to do with principles of course since it’s hard to have principles when you’re the living dead, but it’s just the whole decaying flesh thing is a total turn off.
Is eating zombies frowned upon or ignored?
No – they just taste bad. Kind’ve like tripe (and if you’ve never been forced to eat tripe before then lucky you)
What's your first fave body part to eat? Second fave?
Fingers, fingers and more fingers.
Do you prefer them to be raw or cooked?
Cooked but let’s face it, we can’t always get what we want.
Do you put salt on them first for flavor?
I might be dead but I’ve still go to worry about my health and do you have any idea how bad salt is for your cholesterol?
What's your favorite seasoning?
Ketchup. What a perfect invention that turned out to be.
Do you eat the eyeballs?
Okay, now that’s just gross. Do you have any idea how hard those things are too chew?
Only at Christmas
What do you do with the blood? Do you drink it or just leave it to waste?
That’s like asking if I eat the wrapper of a Mars Bar and leave the chocolate. Oh, speaking of chocolate, I might just need to grab another chocolate covered fingers. Have I mentioned that I like fingers?
What do you pee?
I’m going to take the fifth on this one since I don’t want people to think I’m un-lady like.
What do you poop?
What's a celebrity that you'd like to eat?
David Boreanaz’s wife so that then David and I could be together. Is it wrong of me to use my special powers for evil?
Do you smell like rotten flesh?
Absolutely not - okay, perhaps just a little bit - but you know I met this guy yesterday and he said the smell was sexy. Of course then I ate him so I guess I’ll never know if he really meant it or not.
If you could turn your family, would you?
No, I’m not a sharer and they might make me go and get food for them.
What is your fave perfume? L'eu du Zombie?
Hehehe – more like ‘ewh du zombie’
How do you dance? Do you shake your 'groove thang'?
I don’t care what anyone says there is no reason why a zombie can’t go line dancing.
What do you do when your body parts fall off? Do you tape them back or staple them? Or glue them?
I’m more of a Velcro girl myself and here’s a handy tip. Make sure you use matching colors because let me tell you there is nothing worse than sticking your arm back into your leg socket. People can be so mean. Of course mean people have fingers so it normally turns out okay. Well, for me anyway...
Why do zombies dress all weird and ugly? Do you have no choice in what you wear?
Man the media have soooo much to answer for. Like I’m going to turn living dead and suddenly end up wearing a granny dress instead of my new hoodie and my favorite Tee-shirt. So not going to happen.
How do you breathe and smell if you have no nose?
I could tell you the answer but then I’d have to kill you (and by kill I mean eat!)
Amanda has kindly donated a copy of You Had Me At Halo OR Zombie Queen of Newbury High! Here's what you need to do to win a copy (winner's choice). This giveaway is INTERNATIONAL!
All you need to do is answer the following question: If you happen to be a zombie, which body part would be your favorite and explain why? And explain as to how you will "cook" it--seasoning, methods...
The winning entry will need to have creativity, execution, and by far the most important, humor. Meaning this is NOT a random giveaway. There is no limit to how much you can write or how little you need to write.
For a second chance to win, head on over to Carol's blog where you will receive a second question to answer. Please leave the answer to her question on HER blog. Only one winner will be chosen from the combined entries (meaning we will pick one winner from all the entries from both mine and her blog).
All entries (for all the giveaways) must be received, via commented or emailed, by 25th of April. Winners will be announced at the same time later that week.
