The Accidental Soldiers of Zion vs The Zombie Home Invasion

So V, who had been taking Krav Maga classes for a while now, said we should go to a gun show. The International Krav Maga Federation (IKMF) Philippines was doing a demo around noon on Saturday. I’d never been to either a gun show or a Krav Maga demo, so I agreed to show up.

“Are you sure they’re just classes?” I asked. “I mean, what if you’d unwittingly signed up to serve in the Israeli army?” I heart the Jewish people and everything, but the Israeli army was a different class of awesome (when you’re surrounded by people who are forever trying to attack you, you had better be seriously badass) so I’m not sure they would want me. I get sore arms after rearranging my shoe boxes.

“You’ll be a soldier of Zion, but there will be no bacon,” I added.

“The food in Israel is really good,” S said. “Honestly, you won’t miss the bacon.”

“What about crispy pata?”

S told us about how she once bought, on a whim, a large loaf of bread from a vendor on the beach. “It was amazing. Better than anything at BreadSpeak*. And it had this cheese in it that was also amazing. They have really good food in Israel. Did I mention cheese? And there’s baklava.”

V was not sure she wanted baklava.

“You should tell your future commanding officer you don’t want Baklava,” I said. “I’m sure the Israeli army can feed you something else. Or you can send your baklava to me.”

The Liebster Blog Survey: Apocalypse Edition

So Iggy nominated me for the Liebster blog survey. Thanks, gurl! The mechanics of the Liebster is this: when you get tagged, answer the questions, then come up with 11 questions that you want to be answered by the bloggers you nominate. Liebster is German for “Thank you”, by the way. At the bottom of this post, you’ll find a list of some of my favorite bloggers whom I nominate for the Liebster blog survey.

It’s been a long, tiring, draining, I-just-want-to-cry kind of day. What do you do for comfort?
Eat a tub of ice-cream while watching television (preferably something with lots of gore, like Criminal Minds and Supernatural), then sleep.

Name one crush that usually makes your loved ones go “Really? That guy? You like him? You sure?”
I don’t tell my people who my crushes are, only celeb crushes, and they don’t really count, haha.

If you could be dressed by just one designer/brand, who/what would it be and why?
Forever 21. They have cute stuff, and their catalog is huge. They have outfits for any occasion, from grocery shopping to clubbing to business meetings.

One movie you will never ever be tired of seeing.
