Elf on the Shelf

Even though I don’t have little ones to do Elf on a Shelf with, there are some pretty cool ideas out there.

Here are a few that I found.

Z Nation

Has anyone else been watching Z Nation?

Z Nation

Z Nation is an American horror-comedy-drama/post-apocalyptic television series that airs on Syfy.

I started watching a marathon earlier this year and I got hooked. It a pretty good show. I like how there is a storyline that arcs ever episode. But then each show has it’s own story, start to finish, each week.

Here is the premise of Z Nation

Z Nation begins three years into a virus-caused zombie apocalypse, which has already killed most humans. A group must transport Murphy, the only known survivor of a zombie bite who did not himself turn into a zombie, from New York to the world’s last known functioning research lab in California. Murphy had been the unwilling subject of a government test vaccine in the days just before society fell apart, and his blood contains antibodies that are mankind’s last and best hope for a vaccine. However, Murphy harbors a dark secret that threatens them all. (From Wikipedia.com)

The characters are fun and interesting. There are some scene where its a little bit scary and they there are others where you laugh out loud.

If you are expecting it to be like that other zombie show, you might be a little disappointed. It’s about zombies, but in a different view.

I like it and hope it stays on for a couple of more years. If you haven’t seen it yet, give it a try. Even if you don’t like it, you can get more hints for what to do when there is a Zombie Aocalypse.

Black Friday

Well, I guess when Sylvia has a little money on hand and time, what does she do? Yup… shopping online during Black Friday.

Black Friday

I needed everything that I brought today, I really did. Plus, I’m getting some cash back on my purchases. So, isn’t that a good thing? (I keep telling myself that.)

I did all my shopping online, there is no way that I would have gone out in San Antonio traffic and the crowds at the stores. I would have hurt someone for sure.

So now, I have to wait patiently for the things that I ordered to be delivered. I’m looking forward to putting aside the gifts that I purchased. And looking forward to the ones I brought for myself.

Sometimes, you just have to treat yourself.


“My Humps”

Oh dear Lord, this has to be on the top of the list of songs that gets on my nerves!

My Humps” is the third single by The Black Eyed Peas.



In an April 2011 interview with MTV News, will.i.am stated that the group has retired the song.

“For a while, [we did] ‘My Humps’ and then it got to the point where we didn’t want to play ‘My Humps’ no more. You know, ’cause, ‘I met a girl down at the disco,’ I just didn’t want to say that no more, lyrically…”

He concluded that “My Humps” will not be performed on future tours, admitting the track isn’t his best writing work.

I couldn’t even watch 30 seconds of the video, that is how much I don’t like this song. I guess other people felt the same way too.

Happy Thanksgiving
