The Mean Reds and The zombie apocalypse

I’ve got the mean reds.  Mean reds are when you’re scared and you don’t know why.

Holly Golightly said that in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

I only drank a pint of water today, that could have something to do with it.  And last night I drank a bunch of beer, tossed down an adarol and couldn’t fall asleep until 5 am.  I’m off kilt.  Fuzzy.

Joel is moving in across the street from my house.  He’s going to be in walking distance.  I went to see his new place last night and met his roommates who all know and love my brother.  They are a bunch of cool, musically talented guys who like to play video games and light bonfires in their backyard.  It’s like a whole new world opened up to me – a new creative world that I can get inebriatedly lost in.  All I have to do is open my front door.

I’m happy, but scared at the same time.  My brain is an omlette.

I have a lot of dreams about being back in high school or attending the college I never went to.  I’m always lost and unprepared in these dreams.  Last night was the first time I had a college dream that wasn’t a nightmare.  I was in a college parade, then I was in class learning about the most interesting things imaginable.  I was ecstatic and wondered why I waited so long to get there.  Everyone was so happy.

A quote from Mad Men; “When I’m out of sorts I look at the calendar.  There’s usually something significant on the horizon.”

Perhaps my brain is rewiring itself for the future?  Instead of imbibing the lushs’ life, I’m getting ready for a more lasting, meaningful happiness?

Whatever it is, I’ve been hit hard with the stupid stick.  I feel dumb.

I’m watching Zombies: A Living History, on the history channel.  It’s scaring the hell out of me.  They interviewed scientists that firmly believe we have the technology to create a zombie plague.  They have people on the show who wrote serious books about the zombie apocalypse – giving us lifesaving tactics to overcome the zombie plague.

There is a real-life zombie squad!  A group of people gathering information on how to fight zombie’s.  This is crazy, really crazy.

I have to zombie out.  Lay in bed and mouth breathe for a while.

    I get the mean reds all the time. It usually means something bad is going to happen. Then again, maybe it’s just telling you of an impending zombie apocalypse >:D
