Unmotivated, Panic Attacks and the Zombie Apocalypse

I have been avoiding this blog like the plague. One because half of my keyboard isn't working properly. I also just haven't had much to say and certainly haven't created any new art because I have been a little unmotivated and day jobs have a way of sucking the creative life blood outta you. The last couple of weeks have been kinda blah. With the change into fall weather and lack of time, the kids being super loony and being stuck in rush hour traffic everyday left me feeling a little weird. Weird as in having bizarre dizzy spells at work and then feeling panicky for fear of fainting in front of my new cool co workers. The one thing I do love so far, is that I have been listening to audiobooks on my drive to and from work. I am addicted to zombie and vampire apocalypse novels right now and I haven't decided if that is helping me to relax or causing me more anxiety.

I am Legend by Richard Matheson was an intense and tragic tale of one mans survival and loneliness and had me wishing that traffic was even more bumper to bumper. (the book is a million times better than the movie) Now I am on to The Passage by Justin Cronin about end of the world vampire plagues and scenarios . I have it all lined up to download, The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead. And then maybe The Road by Cormac Mc Carthy.

Sorry, I know that talking about books is bordering on Boring Grownup Concerns but given that the subject matter includes Zombies, that is ok right?

I do feel a little better this weekend. Perhaps in a future post I will talk about all the ghost stories my coworkers and I have been telling around the office campfire...aka the cooler.
There is a rumor that our building is....haunted.
