Zombie Apocalypse Survival Kit and Crew Blogfest . . .

Today I'm taking part in the Zombie Apocalypse Survival Kit and Crew Blogfest hosted by Mina Lobo at Some Dark Romantic, Jackie at Bouquet of Books and Dani at Entertaining Interests.  Go check out their blogs for more fun Survival reading.  I sure will be :)

To create my dream team, I have to choose one for the following categories below, and be as creative as I possibly can.  Oh what fun :)


  • 1 The Walking Dead character - Michonne 'cause she's cool!
  • 1 book character - Kit from Jon Sprunk's 'Shadow Saga'. She's an entity that only one person is able to see.  We can send her forward to scout out places so that we know what we're walking into.
  • 1 movie character - the badass T-800 from Terminator.  Just 'cause...
  • 1 TV character (other than TWD) - Rick Castle from Castle.  His humor will keep spirits high in dark times.  Also we could talk writing the whole time too and plan how to resurrect the publishing world after the apocalypse.
  • 1 loved one - My Significant Other - naturally
  • 1 friend - My friend Lucy.  She's a killer at heart and is currently preparing for a charity zombie run so she'll have some good training :)
  • 1 freebie - My sister.  We make a pretty good team.


  • 1 comfort item - my pillow
  • 1 weapon - a sword, I mean come on!  How many thought Michonne was cool with her swords?  Silent but deadly.  Just the thing you need.
  • 1 luxury item - my duvet
  • 1 food item - Whey Protein.  Mix with water and you have a good few of the nutrients you need.
  • 1 medicine/first aid item - Aspirin.  Don't want to survive the Zombie Apocalypse only to fall victim to a measly infection.
  • 1 hygiene item - baby wipes.  They're underrated in times of need.
  • 1 freebie - Flash Wipes.  Fuelled by a dream I once had where I was running through someone's house and throwing anything I could lay my hands on at the pursuing Zombies.  Then I picked up some flash wipes, threw them and watched in utter surprise as the Zombies recoiled and backed up.  They were too clean, you see.  Too clean.  The Zombies wanted their bacteria to spread.


  • Outpost - A ship half a mile off the coast of the UK.  These Zombies can't swim through fear of becoming clean.
  • Outbreak - London
  • Cause of it - caused by 'the Bacteria Conspiracy' which unknowingly created a nation of cleanliness enthusiasts. No longer were kids allowed to play in the garden making mud pies and getting dirty.  Household germs had to be destroyed in every corner and on every surface, causing the human immune system to grow weak against the every-day bacteria of the outside world.  Then there became a point when the body's immunity grew too weak and the Bacteria, who had been waiting in the shadows multiplying and creating a race of intelligent super-bacteria with world domination in mind and wanting to prove that after billions of years they were still the master race, made it's leap for power, seeking vengeance for all those times we used bleach - and flash wipes.
  • Cure (if applicable) - the discovery of an uber-strong antibacterial soap and then forcing these zombies to take a bath
  • 1 item you NEED to find - another sword - it's that Michonne thing again :)
  • 1 item you WANT to find - more Zombie Flash Wipes - simply Throw and Go!
  • Method of travel - a boat to land followed by a flash wipe coated car...

that they'll hate!


  1. Love the Flash wipes!!! Rick Castle.... amazing choice for his quick wit and writing skills! And whey protein... such a great idea! I wish I would've thought of that one!
    Thanks for participating in the bloghop!

  2. I've never heard of a Flash Wipe before but the humor you supplied with them makes me very curious!! And I didn't even think of baby wipes!!! We use them for everything in our house. It's perfect!! You have some really great crew members!! My brother was allergic to whey so we grew up with some different foods.

  3. I seriously heart 'the Bacteria Conspiracy' as the origin of the zombie apocalypse - clever! Also clever is your idea about cleansing being the cure. Brava!

  4. I love the cause of your outbreak! And you can never have too many swords!

  5. That's actually a pretty good cause - haha! There are too many clean freaks out there, and so many people who are quick to take over-the-counter medications that our immune systems are getting weaker from multiple angles. Nice list!

  6. And when you're bored, you can always take those two swords and do some fencing. Just make sure you don't actually cut your opponent's arm off. :)

  7. Haha, love what you came up with, especially the T-800 :-)

  8. I'd always take Rick from WALKING DEAD without thinking! He is the outstanding moral role model and hero

  9. Thanks guys :) We all had fun with this one. Was a great blogfest :)
