A saw, an axe, and Killin' Nazis

Two things for today!
First off I am excited to have received these adorable rustic looking axe and saw earrings in the mail today, I ordered them from so if you want a pair of your very own check out her shop.

And secondly, if there is anything more than a zombie that I would like to shoot through the brain pan it's a Nazi. So you can imagine my delight to find "Dead Snow" at Blockbuster yesterday while pulling back through town from my weekend away with the hubby. I had never heard of it but after reading the back I practically hopped up and down in is the synopsis from Fandango:

Eight medical students on a ski trip to Norway discover that Hitler's horrors live on when they come face to face with a battalion of undead Nazi soldiers intent on devouring anyone unfortunate enough to wander into the remote mountains where they were once sent to die. It's Easter vacation, and what better way to spend the break than skiing down the isolated hills just outside of Øksfjord, Norway? After packing their cars with enough beer and ski equipment to ensure that a good time will be had by all, the students set out for their destination and prepare for a relaxing snowbound getaway. Shortly after arriving at their remote cabin, however, the students receive an unexpected visit from a rather suspicious hiker. According to their shady visitor, the Nazis occupied this territory during World War II. In the aftermath of their brutal raping and pillaging, the locals revolted, driving the few surviving Nazi soldiers -- including their iron-fisted leader, Colonol Herzog -- deep into the hills. Neither the soldiers nor their leader were ever seen again. Everyone in town assumed that they simply froze to death. But there's something stirring out there in the trees, and it won't be long until the unsuspecting students discover how the story really ends. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

So there you Have it, I cannot wait to see some Nazi Zombies get their heads lopped off, It should be wonderfully campy.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was written by Seth Grahame-Smith in 2009. It is a combo of Jane Austen's classic novel "Pride and Prejudice" with the awsomeness that is zombie mayhem!

I drooled to myself as I read this book in the dark with my little booklight under the blankets. As an Austen fan, when I heard that this book was written I pretty much fell out of my chair and ran to buy it. The thought of Elizabeth Bennet slaughtering zombies made me giddy as a school girl with a cupcake. I feel that much of the humor would be lost on someone who has not read the original 1813 novel, but a great read for the zombie lover nonetheless.
