For the last few weeks, I keep getting sent the link to this new book. (Hi, Tammy!) And I'm not sure why. I mean, it's not like I have an obsession with Pride and Prejudice or anything. And it's not like I ever talk about zombies.
Name ONE TIME I've talked about zombies!
Okay. There was that one time. And maybe a few others.
Which is (honestly) perplexing, because when it comes to paranormal creatures, I am totally a werewolf girl. Remus Lupin, An American Werewolf in London, Kelley Armstrong's Bitten, etc etc etc.
Werewolves. Not Zombies.
And it's not as if the mere mention of Jane Austen's masterpiece makes me immediately do a Google Image search for Matthew Macfadyen. (Yeah. I'm Team Matthew. Team Colin is cool, but it's kinda crowded anyway.) And I've certainly never wasted an entire post with pictures of him.
I am totally above that, you guys.
But, for some reason, people keep thinking I'll be interested in this fancy new book! Here's the description, from the publisher's website:
"Pride and Prejudice and Zombies features the original text of Jane Austen's beloved novel with all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie action. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton—and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she's soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy."
Um, hello. I'd be "distracted" too. Have you SEEN Mr. Darcy?
Greatest. Scene. EVER. Ever ever EVER!
[Please pardon me while I go cool down. Just going to stick my feet in the snow for a second. Maybe put an icicle somewhere inappropriate. Be right back.]
So maybe I am interested in this book. MAYBE. But did you hear??? PRIDE AND PREJUDICE! And ZOMBIES! TOGETHER AT LAST!!!!!!! The only thing that could POSSIBLY make this better would be the addition of lots and lots and lots of glorious smooching. I would think killing zombies would make Lizzy and Darcy hot.
But maybe that's just me.
In other vaguely-related news, Jarrod just found out about a place in Portland called Voodoo Doughnut that not only sells vegan doughnuts, naughty-shaped doughnuts, and doughnut voodoo dolls (raspberry filling for blood!) but it also has a wedding chapel! IN THE DOUGHNUT SHOP!
The best part is, when he told me, we were both immediately like, "We are so renewing our vows there."
And we were serious.
And there is a chance we'll be in Portland this spring.
