The Migraine Zombie

Finding Sunshine in the Zombie Apocolypse

It's Halloween week and I thought I would share with you something that has become a staple in our home.  We are huge "The Walking Dead" fans.  We missed the first season.  We were not interested in it a all.  One rainy weekend sometime last year found us with nothing to do and we turned on our Roku box...we got hooked on this masterpiece  through the commercial-less, sit in your PJ's all day long, and veg-out in front of your TV called ...more

Apocalypse Soon: I Became a Zombie at the Doomsday Fair

Zombie Marketing

“The average American worker has fifty interruptions a day, of which seventy percent have nothing to do with work.”  – W. Edwards Deming  You might have noticed, zombies have become a popular part of our cultural landscape.  The continuing interest in zombie-themed movies, TV shows and even events seems to keep growing with no end in sight.  As a marketer, it got me thinking about places where “Walking Dead” might be appropriate for certain marketing tactics. ...more

Lemonade and Zombie Party

Make lemons into lemonade is the recurring theme of my life the last couple of months. The ongoing saga of injury and athletic pursuit as well as the ebbs and flows of my personal life have been written here a few times. There is nowhere to look but forward so I try my hardest to make the best of situations. Last Saturday, I could have sulk over the disappointment of a cake that did not turn out as pretty as I hoped. It tasted great but less than photogenic was considered much too kind of a description. See for yourself....more

Happy St. Patrick's Day from Zeke Zombie!

Remember Zeke? You probably don’t recognize the name, but you’ll recognize the face. I almost named him “Rob,” but someone already has the name Rob Zombie. Hmph. The last time you saw Zeke, he was dressed like Santa....more
Thanks! I think at some point we'll have to start taking decorations away so he doesn't get too ...more

The Hollowmen


Last minute Halloween fun

  Halloween 2011: We decided at the last minute to set up for Halloween. Maya and I painted our faces, Patrick and DeAngelo set up spider webs on the front porch, candles, and put on scary music for the trick or treaters. Once we ran out of candy, all four of us plopped down in the family room and watched Corpse Bride! Photo taken using Hipstamatic....more

The Halloween Overachiever

I don't know when it started. I guess it's possible that she may have always been this way—even as far back as inside the womb. I am referring to my daughter's need to be the best at whatever she does. When it comes to Halloween, it's no different. She pushes it to the limit—or at least to my limit—always needing to have the most original costume possible. This means that it can't be purchased straight off the shelf, and since I don't sew, I can't make it in the traditional sense....more
Great costumes! I can't wait to find out what she decided to be this year!more
