Good luck, and happy holidays everyone!


My "peculiar' superpower would be "insane trivia knowledge". I feel I am already disposed to this, but I imagine the superpower would be a MacGuyver-esqe ability to solve situations based on knowledge of trivia/quotes/historical events. It would not be quite as logical as Sherlock Holmes (or his modern medical counterpart Dr. House), but it would be an uncanny ability to have an interesting fact/anecdote to combat the current problem. Think a female Stephen Fry wearing tights and a cape... okay, maybe that wasn't the best visual but you get the idea.

Forgot my email. Its katesmithftw(at)gmail(dot)com.

To survive a zombie uprising one must KISS, Keep it Simple Stupid. A simple now crossbow with arrows, katana, and of course lighter fluid to burn the bodies. But also not wanting to become a savage while killing the undead, lipgloss is a must. My Mr. G and I will protect our countryside and family by training our brothers and sisters to hunt and kill the undead with us, but of course do it all before tea time.

This is so cool! I have my zombie uprising escape all planned out. I shall jump out of the window in a refrigerator, somehow make my way to the giant over there, and he can carry the refrigerator out to some uninhabited-by-zombies island in the middle of the ocean. Of course, this is only a last resort. - i think i would like to turn into an adorable kitten, just like in The Meowmorphosis!

I would call upon Sam and Dean Winchester because they would fight all the zombie badasses to their undead graves!
