As someone who doesn't work "normal" hours, it's easy to forget when holiday weekends are looming like, for example, this coming Memorial Day weekend. While most people are out grilling hamburgers and hot dogs, eating watermelon, and relaxing with family and friends, I'll be at work for 16 hours doing what I do best - telling other people where to go!
Amanda, on the other hand, is going to be spending the weekend down in New York City visiting her BFF and brain-twin, Sami. I'll be putting her on the train Saturday afternoon before I head into work and picking her back up Monday night. She's really looking forward to the weekend away not just because she gets to hang out with Sami but because it's also time for the NYC Zombie Crawl and the chance for Amanda to don torn clothes, slather herself with fake blood, and lurch her way through the streets of Brooklyn while looking for brainssss!
This will be Amanda's third zombie walk or crawl or lurch or whatever you want to call it as she participated in last year's NYC Zombie Crawl with Sami as well as the Zombie Walk in Asbury Park, New Jersey last October that regular readers of this blog may remember. She always has a lot of fun and must be a pretty convincing zombie being that she's the "poster zombie" on Wikipedia! Gee, could a mother be any prouder??
