Z is for Zombie

Oh, I probably started thinking I became a zombie (having disappeared from my blogging profile for over a month). Fortunately (unfortunately?) not! Today I'm back with a list of the most entertaining zombie movies out there. According to me anyway (& in spite of the fact that what I should be working on, is my Blog's overall look & feel).
I find it extreeeeeeemely difficult to recommend movies without giving away too much of the plot and/or without the use of verbatim script quotes, but I'll try my best. For you.

Zombie Movie Line-Up
(Note: I thumb-sucked the scene titles.)

Shaun of the Dead will forever be one of the funniest zombie movies I've seen so far!!! Those Brits just know exactly how to tickle my funny bone and I have not yet met anyone else who saw the film & disliked it.

This film also proved to be one of those that my sister & I immediately adopted as a cinematic educational tool. Everyone we knew, heard about it as soon as we saw it & now everyone we meet will inevitably be introduced to it within the first 6 months of our new acquaintance.

Must love Shaun. We're a package deal, people.

Best Scenes: Girl in the Garden, Bar Fight

I actually re-watched Dead & Breakfast last night. Such fun! The first time I heard of it, was when I walked into my sister's bedroom while she was watching it. At first I just pulled a face & said, 'What the fuck are you watching?', but then I sat down & made her play it from the top so I could see it from the beginning.

This movie combined two of my favourite genres - horror & musicals. It's truly awesome.

Best Scenes: Enus, Midnight Snack, Comin' To Kill Ya, The Hoedown

Together, 28 Days Later & 28 Weeks Later comes into play today, too. I was scared shitless purely because of the zombies' speed in these two.

The fear factor was also amplified when I watched them for the first time, because I had no idea what they were about (I just randomly popped them in & pressed 'Play' that morning).

Best Scenes: Haven't seen it either of them in a while, so I can't recall them individually. (Sorry! I will update this post as soon as I've watched it again.)

Zombieland. The collaborative result from a stellar cast & brilliant writers, means it is easily counted amongst my Top 5 & definitely worth the watch.

I, for one, will never think about Woody or Twinkies in the same way again.

Best Scenes: Cardio & The Double-Tap, Bill Murray

Being Good in Bed & Other Unwholesome Habits

How are those New Year's Resolutions working out for you?
Sticking to my new morning routine is one that continued to kick my ass right into October. I was pretty motivated to kick off my newly designed routine but a few weeks into 2017 it tanked. Hard.

Living comfortably is a privilege not afforded to many and all things considered, I must admit that my life actually is quite plush. I have room to be lazy in, including - but not limited to - sleeping in almost daily. Maybe that's how I got all fluffed up. (I literally - and I do mean LITERALLY - piled on the body mass of an average sized person*, except it was all excess fat.)
The Why Whatever the reason(s) behind my massive weight gain over the past 15 years, I've finally had enough when it dawned on me that although weight has nothing to do with worth or beauty, lab results are the kind of numbers you need to pay attention to (more on this later).

I was done with my lack of discipline.

I was done with unhealthy choices…

Weekly Quotable: Let Them Eat Cake!

Just FYI: "Let them eat cake" is a phrase widely attributed to Marie-Antoinette, but according to, she probably never even said it.

From 5KM to 10KM (Part 1)

Boot Camp Weeks 11 - 15[1 January - 4 February 2018]
The Numbers:
Day 14 = weighed in for Boot Camp registration and another 0.6kg down.                    ≈4.1kg ↓ so far
Day 15 = Boot Camp starts
Day 28 = completed my 2nd 7.5 km hike

Additional Notes/Comments: A great opportunity fell into my lap - a free 4 week fitness boot camp just became available via Facebook. I had some residual aches & pains that I first had to get checked out, but as soon as the GP gave me the all clear, I tackled my first ever body boot camp.My diet has gone to hell, so I've been too scared to weigh in as well. Trying to muster up my courage, because I'm expecting to have gained all of the weight I lost over Nov & Dec 2017...
