I am definitely a stranger in a ver-r-y strange land.
What channel has the Zombie lecture?

I am in too. Katie and Alix, I decided to make it three!

At my workout last week I hit the wrong button on the treadmill to start it and instead of starting at a speed of 1.5 I started at 5, which is base jogging speed and way to fast for my level! I couldn't release the emergency cord and flipped over backwards. The guy beside me finally got the cord release and another woman got a trainer. But I sat up, checked all my parts for anything super painful, shook off my pride and hopped back on for my 20 minute warm-up. I have a few bruises but otherwise am fine. If it had been even a month ago, I think I would have been taken out on a stretcher, but because I have been working out, specially water walking 300 - 450 kms at a time, I am stronger.

Sorry, Princess. I left my computer and didn't see your question until this morning. I know enquiring minds need to see these things. The zombie thing was on a C-Span book program (I think that's what it was, anyway); this guy had written a book about international politics and zombies. One of the last questions from the audience was asking why he didn't write about vampires. I am sorry I didn't get an answer for you in a timely way.
