Title: The Pragmatist
Summary: Learning to follow in ten steps.
Thanks: lyra_sena, as always for seeing me through the first half of this, and svmadelyn for the speedy beta and ability to help me brainstorm, while I was way drunk.

So. Yeah. Clex. Who knew? Not me. *chips away at writer's block*

lyra_sena, look away.

I have watched another zombie movie. I have spent all day thinking about zombies. I have come to several conclusions about zombies, myself, America's relationship to history and also Europe (by way of Nabokov's Lolita), and alsy why 28 Days Later is the most meta-terrifying movie in the world (barring only The Excorcist and Eye for an Eye). Now is the time on sprockets when I share those conclusions.

1. Would I survive a zombie attack? Collapse )

2. Why am I fascinated with zombies? Collapse )

3. Are zombies key to thinking about the American identity, the relationship of Lolita and Humbert Humbert, and America's relationship to Europe? Collapse )

4. 28 Days Later: Scariest. Movie. Ever. Collapse )

I want a t-shirt that says "I Theorize The Zombie".

Alack and alas, I must to bed sometime soon, and I'll tell you why: it's because I work again tomorrow. I work 6 days a week! It's insane! Plus, I work full days! And do things like a real grown up person would do! It's freaking me out.

Thankfully, all I have to do is come home, and read my own LJ entries before I get too carried away with being a real person.

Also, I would just like to share the fact that yesterday at work I fell down onto my face and nearly broke my nose, and then ruined all of the coffee rags by bleeding all over them. Today my nose sort of looks like a little bruised and swollen but nothing like what you would have expected given the torrents of noseblood I endured yesterday. I swear at least two people who asked me what happened to my nose today didn't believe me when I told them what had happened. It was very, very odd.

And! Please! Hook me up with your favorite driving songs!

I have worked many days in a row now. Tommorow is Sunday. In a right and just world, I would not, in fact, be working tomorrow. I am mainly right now just whining because I'm tired. My job is good. My job pays well. I am at peace with my universe. Honestly.

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, which I watched this evening, was a movie that was clearly made for me, given the way that it dealt extensively with the idea of bear attack.

I'd like to report that I - thankfully - have still not been attacked by a bear. This means my life is pretty much on track, as far as I'm concerned.

I feel like I probably need an icon relating to my deep seated conviction that bear attack is the most traumatic form of animal attack. And, also, I'm waiting for "I will maul you like a motherfucking panda" to catch on and become a cool thing to say to people, because I personally feel it's a damned fine threat.

Maybe also a zombie icon that says "Theorize This".

Lastly, these are the LJ interests I have in common with no one: all things arthurian, giganto citrus, eels in knots, lakes in oceans, laser eyed fish, photoshopping with my mind, spitting firecrackers, theorizing zombies, vin diesel/patrick swayze and cloning paul gross.

One that is, apparently, shared is this: avoiding bear attacks.

I'm glad to know I'm the only one out there, avoiding bear attacks.

My icon indicates my feelings of extreme sullen sulkyness about working tomorrow. I hate to work tomorrow. It's bad.
