…not my child’s, his action figure’s.

Day Six: Oh, the humanity…

...Twitch: Making Tourette's Cool.


The zombler is all boy. 100%.  One of his favorite things is motocross.  Naturally then, he received tons of motocross paraphernalia this past Christmas.  His favorite thing is his Twitch action figure/ motorcycle combo.  If you aren’t familiar with Twitch, he is a motocross rider with a group called Metal Mulisha and is known for 1. Having Tourette’s Syndrome and 2. Being awesome.  Along with his Twitch action figure, Drew also has about 3 or 4 others that he plays with on a regular basis.  I guess in true zombie-like fashion, my child always ends up removing one body part or another from his poor and battered action figures.  Poor Twitch is his most recent favorite, and unfortunately has lost a leg.  It is my job, as mombie, to keep sticking the leg on whenever it falls off.  I would say I do this an average of 6 billion times daily, and Heaven forbid the leg gets lost. 

The other day, during a particularly bitter temper tantrum, zombler thought it would be a wonderful idea to throw his Twitch across the room.  Twitch’s leg flew off (of course) and it took a good 15 minutes to find it and successfully reattach.  As much as I love Twitch and all things motocross, I wish that my child would instead play with my zombie action figures.  So they are violent looking toys, so what? At least when a limb comes off, its natural and doesn’t have to be re attached…

I’m off to the action figure ER,

I’ve had no real direction for this blog as of yet and it has been driving me out of my brain.  Then, it occurred to me that I do in fact have a camera and that I can, in fact, use it.  I have decided to take a year of my time to document life as a mombie with one photo a day.  In typical zombiegrrl fashion, I will not have any organization to this except for the fact that there will always be one photo a day.  Will I rant at times as well? Yes.  Will I still post witty one liners in place of actual blog entries? Of course.  For the next year, enjoy a glimpse into my world.

Day One: Bugs in the Shower.

Slowly taking over the cleanest place in the house…

After stumbling into a craft store the other day in an attempt to find something to feed my activity starved zombler, I came across these little gems.  For exactly $1, you too can own little plastic coated pills that expand into insects once inserted into bath water (or any water, for that matter…).  I like the dragonfly.  I always like the dragonfly. Doesn’t matter what it is, if you slap a dragonfly on it, I’ll enjoy it.  Except for the overly girly ones. I like the anatomically correct and traditionally ‘not pretty’ ones.  Anyways, there you go.  First picture for a year in the un-life of a semiconscious mombie of a zombler.  Kisses.
