And now for something completely different.

Okay, this might have nothing to do with writing, but what it lacks in topicality (it's a word write it down) it makes up for in sheer awesomeness.

Today, May 27, at 1:00 PM, on Portland's Eastern Prom, is the second annual Zombie Kickball game. What, you might ask, is zombie kickball? Let me see if I can explain:

IT'S ZOMBIES PLAYING KICKBALL.

Don't believe me? Check the myspace. Or the paper, who had this to say (picture theirs, italics mine):


Ah, Memorial Day Weekend. Barbecues, parades and … zombies. This Saturday presents a unique opportunity to dress like a zombie and play kickball on Portland’s Eastern Prom. Organizers hope to draw 100 of the walking dead. Those who don’t want to play ball can still fill out the "Zombie Bleachers" or serve as zombie cheerleaders.

That's right zombie cheerleaders. I live in the best town ever.
