Zombie dance: not just for Thriller anymore
Monday, June 28, 2010, 9:00 PM

I learned the Zombie March last fall to honor Michael Jackson's passing, and when I saw this YouTube video of (what I think is the Glee cast) dancing to one of my favorite songs, I started doing the shoulder-neck jerk thing. 

Zombie March.

Safety Dance.

What's not to like? (Plus, I think MJ would've gotten a kick out of this.) Check out the awesome:

Sadly, I can't move like this. Never could, although I had lots of fun trying. I ended up feeling sore, but enthusiastic and like I was on top of the frigging world. There's just something about making a fool out of myself next to 3,999 other people.

Meanwhile, I am exhausted as per usual lately. I have one of two theories:
  1. You stayed up too late
  2. Yeah, you really think you can make it without two of your coworkers for long

My closest coworker left for a new job last week. It's almost like losing a family member and I don't think my head and heart have recovered yet. The other coworker is on vacation. How dare he?

Plus, there's the suspicion I was a night owl in a former life.

Whichever it is, I know tomorrow will be better, especially if I go to bed now.

Camping's not just for Yellowstone anymore

Last week it was Lakers mania at the Staples Center. They won. Excitement abounded. I wore yellow to work on Friday.

This week, it's Eclipse total. Freaking. Madness. These people are camping out four days in advance of the movie premiere. Just look at those tents spread all out on the concrete in front of the big screen at the Staples Center. Whoa, some cool looking tents there... (Incidentally, this concrete is also where I did my Zombie March, Booty Swim of shame on October 24, 2009. It might be a toss up on whether Hollywood Boulevard or Staples gets more play.)

I'm a TwiHard girl, but the calm, cool and gleefully supportive of the franchise kind of TwiHard girl. It's cheesy. It's fun. It's romantic. It's me all over. But I sure as hell wouldn't be camping out four days in advance just for a wee chance at getting in. I think it's ree-dick-yoo-lous to scream, slobber and generally lose all sense of decorum over human beings who put their undies on the same way I do. They already get paid way too effin much. Plus! I think I'd rather go to the dentist and get a tooth pulled than to rub shoulders with a bunch of screaming girls at this kind of event. Oh, the horrah.

Well, unless I had a few drinky-poos first. Still, it ain't gonna happen. The movie's not going anywhere, Eclipse will still be showing in IMAX format two weeks after June 30th. 

Mmm, it do look promising. [insert tiny adult-like squee]
