With a name like Zombieland, you might think this movie would be full of disgusting zombies trying to kill everyone and scare the audience. This isn’t exactly correct. Zombieland takes place a few months after the zombie apocalypse, and follows the story of a young nerdy man. He has rules on how to survive zombieland, and follows these rules to the letter. That is until he meets someone else who isn’t infected. The movie from there kind of turns into a road trip comedy, with a little love story built in.
This movies has some of the best zombie comedy since Shaun of the Dead. I wouldn’t call Zombieland a spoof like Shaun of the Dead, but it isn’t the kind of movie, where zombies are trying to scare the crap out of you. It’s more laid back, everyone in the movie has come to the realization that the Zombies are everywhere and they have to do what they can to survive. This includes kicking zombie ass, breaking thing, and just plain doing what they want.
This was by far the most entertained I have been at a movie in a long while. I would and probably will sit through this movie many more times.

Yesterday I got a message from @Strages that simple said “ZOMG WTF!!!!! https://twitter.com/tinahicks/status/4664744716″ That is the link to this twitter message “@HSVAlive Soul Burger which is now inside Huntsville Athletic Club on Leeman Ferry”, which is a reply to HSVAlive asking who has the best burger in Huntsville.
After talking with strages for a few minutes yesterday evening we decided Soul Burger being in an Athletic Club was too ridiculous that we had to check it out. So we looked at a map and headed in search of my long lost friend. As we pulled into the Athletic Club we could see tennis courts outside, and a weight room inside. We started to walk toward the door, still thinking this can’t be true. I walked in, looked at the guy sitting at the front counter and said, “This may sound crazy, but is there a burger place in here?” He looked up and said, “Yep, its up stairs, called Soul Burger”. I turned to strages with my mouth wide open and pointed to the stairs, then turned back and ask “You mean like with Cathy cooking and everything”, to which replied “yep” again. As we walked up the stairs the smell of cooking burgers got stronger, then turned the corner and BAM!! Its like we walked into some alternate detention. Sure enough Cathy was standing there in a cooking apron. She looked up and let out a loud, “OH HONEYS!!! YOU CAME!!!!!” She gave us hugs and talked about how she had just opened, and yesterday was her second day open.
The love in the air last night couldn’t have been any stronger. Cathy is a great woman, and makes one hell of a burger. I hope she sticks around for a long while, she has a lot of catching up to do.

Over the past couple of weeks, I have been hanging out with this girl. The first time we went out, we had a great time. That great time turned into pretty much a weekend of great times. The only problem with this was that she was still in love with her ex. Which I can understand, being this was someone she was with for 4 years. We continued to hang out even though she met up with her ex multiple times, each time she felt terrible about herself and knew she had screwed up. I really thought this girl was cool, and probably not always so crazy about things. So I stuck around, trying not to let myself think we had anything more going on than we did. Apparently even that she read too much into and started pushing me away. Until a final blow out in which the truth came out.
During these final moments I could see she wasn’t really as cool as I had thought. In fact she was a shallow hateful person. She told me multiple times that my age wasn’t right for her, that I complained too much, I said “What” too much. All of these things didn’t make me mad, they made me realize how shallow she was. They made me realize that even though I had sacrificed some of my “perfect woman” ideas, she had not and would not do the same for me.
In the “real” relationships I have had, I learned a few things about myself. I learned that once trust is gone, it is nearly impossible to get it back. I learned that if you don’t talk about things in a relationship you are doomed. I learned to not talk to ex’s. I can’t call what me and this girl had a relationship, but I did learn a few things. Things like, don’t fall for someone if you are just their rebound guy, don’t stick around if thing continually fall apart, don’t think just because things move fast everything is alright. I would have to say the biggest thing I learned is that I am the type of person that wants a relationship, not just a “friend“.

The other night I headed down to The Koffee Klatch with some friends. After sitting there for a few min, I needed to use the restroom. I asked where it was, and proceed to that location. It was down the stairs and to the right. After taking the right I was giving the choice of two black doors. Both had zero indication of which gender they were for. I stood there for a second trying to figure out what to do. I decided I would just pretend like I was reading the news article on the wall and wait for someone else to go in or out of the doors. After about 15 seconds, a man walked down the stairs, asked if I was waiting for the restroom, to which I replied “Nope go right a head”. He turned around, stopped, then turned back and asked “which one is the mens room”. In my head I’m thinking “great I get the one other guy that hasn’t been here either, what the hell are we going to do now”. I jokingly replied “Hell if I know, was hoping you did”. So we both just stood there for a few more seconds. Finally someone else came down the stairs, saw us both standing there and asked if we were waiting for the restroom. We asked him which one was the mens room and finally got our answer. I was able to successfully relieve myself without the embarrassment of being in the wrong restroom.
