And health, home, relationships, books, movies, travel, personal development, and all the consequential & inconsequential things we California Zombies care about. Welcome!

Hey yeah we had a great weekend of beautiful California weather. Sunny, mid 70s. Perfect for a weekend in Long Beach at the Queen Mary Scotsfest, where we hung out with a bunch of fun Scottish people, listening to pipe bands, watching Highland Games (large men in kilts throwing things), and enjoying a wee dram or two.
If you haven’t been to a Scottish Festival, you MUST go! There’s something for everyone – sheep herding demonstrations, heavy athletics, vendors selling all manner of food, apparel, kilts & sporrans, as well as Clan Tents where you can get connected to your kinfolk.
We especially love the great people at Mclaren’s Shortbread – the BEST all natural, handmade shortbread, scone mixes, and jams. We always buy a big box of the shortbread and hope it lasts until the next day.
And of course, the amazing bagpipers! There were many about for the competitions – both individual pipers and whole bands. Magic music, it is! For some reason, we Americans associate bagpipes with either parades or funerals, but there’s so much more to it. It’s complex, beautiful, harmonious, and haunting – in a good way!
Here’s a sample from the world-class LA Scots Pipe Band. Enjoy!
And here’s a cool Celtic Rock band, Bad Haggis:
There are Scottish Festivals all over the country (and world), so check your local listings for one near you and have a rockin’ awesome Scots time! We may see you there!
Zombie preparedness under discussion in the Canadian Parliament? “Canada will never become a safe haven for Zombies! EVER!” Gotta love the Canadians!
We had the idea for this blog a loooooong time ago, and officially bought the domain name in June 2011. But then, other pressing commitments ensued, and Malibu Zombie languished. Appropriately, alive but not… undead.
So here we are, ready to go. No time like the present, as they say!
First up, something a friend posted on facebook today. We all have things we seek in a romantic life partner. For many, it’s a certain look, common interests, compatible lifestyle, and/or chemistry. We have a few other requirements:
What other requirements do we have for a partner? Are looks and chemistry really important? Or is having a secret place or bunker fully stocked with supplies more important? Does that qualify as “compatibility?”
And then – what supplies? If your partner thinks the important supplies are food, water, guns, ammunition, and leaves no space for hairspray, chocolate, or even deodorant, how long will your relationship last? These things must be considered when choosing your future mate!
