Of all the possible (and impossible) ends to the human race, the notion of having everyone you’ve ever known turn into mindless husks of human flesh intent on eating the still-living leaves me feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. Just think, a shotgun and a box of ammunition is all you’d need for hours of non-stop entertainment. And yes, that could be potentially dangerous, but only if you haven’t created the appropriate safety protocols.
To enjoy yourself during the zombie apocalypse, you must first heed the messages of people who have pondered the notion of the non-living much longer than we ever have. I’m talking, of course, about the film and T.V. writers who have played out zombie-themed scenarios countless times, and have incidentally uncovered survival strategies that work.
Here’s what Hollywood has to teach us:
1) Create a plan
Once you get past the initial shock and panic brought on by the thought that everyone you love is probably dead, you’ll be ready to have fun in your new zombie playground. Take a moment to sit and jot down a couple basic rules to help prevent any zombie from getting the jump on you. Caution is the key here. If you’re not careful your game could come to an end, and you don’t get any extra lives.
2) Find more survivors Read more…

This entire episode couldn’t live up to the last five minutes of last week’s. With all the unanswered questions and confusion, this was just a filler episode to pass time until the finale. It wasn’t a bad episode, but it just seemed dry, probably not the best build up to the finale.
Nonetheless, here are five things I learned on last night’s episode, “The Fugitives.”
1) Daddy, where art thou? So much for making up for lost time. Chuck and Bart hardly spent any time together. But at least eventually, Chuck and Bart were on the same side and were able to get rid of the posed danger. Things are looking up for Chuck and some unanswered questions were solved.
2) Ensure that your private investigator doesn’t need private investigating. Poor Andrew Tyler wasn’t on the Bass family’s good side anymore and of course, they got the final say. Andrew can kiss his future goodbye as I am sure Chuck and Bart will ensure it’s spent behind bars.
3) Nothing can come between true friends. Too bad Serena and Blair aren’t as good friends as we hoped. Serena’s dark side is being shown for all to see, when Gossip Girl comes back with a bang. Looks like Serena crossed the line and the future of Blair, Dan, Serena and Chuck are all at stake. Read more…

Tonight’s episode of Gossip Girl left us with many questions and no answers. It didn’t live up to the rest of the fast paced episodes this season.
As for the five things I learned on last night’s episode, “It Girl, Interrupted,” here they are:
1) “It” girls like Serena are easy to replace especially when Lola is nearby. We all know Serena wants to avoid Gossip Girl’s radar but the fame whore secretly misses the spotlight A LOT.
2) Money doesn’t buy happiness, at least not for Chuck! Yes, we all know he’s maturing, and becoming selfless, which is adorable. And yes, he didn’t want Blair to know he paid off the dowry, but just like you can’t buy Blair Waldorf, you can’t sell her either. Much to my dismay, Blair still chooses Dan over Chuck, even after the dowry is paid, how disappointing!
3) “It” runs in the family. Lola’s picking up the East-side ways a lot faster than people would have thought, when she uses Serena to get into a party. People think newcomers take a while to catch the drift, but then again she’s from Florida AND she’s William’s daughter.
4) There’s a relentless Bass on the loose and he won’t rest until he finds out who gave him the blood. If it’s not Jack or Elizabeth then who is it? I’d say that sex-crazed Diana might have had something to do with it, but this show never ceases to surprise me!
5) Clothes and hair make the man. Take, for example, Chuck’s red “onesie” bodysuit that detracted from his normally attractive style and made him look like a teletubby. I had to rub my eyes a few times because I thought I was seeing things! As for Dan’s hair, it’s atrocious! If he wants to keep “princess” Blair Waldorf he has to seriously get rid of the flow.
Tune in next week for a new episode, but until then, xoxo!
