10 Things I Need to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse

by Elizabeth on August 24, 2011 · 5 comments

in awesomeness, i am random, i love a good list

Y’all know I love lists, so I thought today we’d have a silly one. 🙂

But it’s also NOT silly because it’s good to be prepared.  You know, just in case.


To successfully survive the Zombie Apocalypse, I would need:

1. Sunscreen (or tinted moisturizer that has sunscreen in it)

2. A year’s supply of diet coke (no way I’m fighting zombies while under-caffeinated)

3. An atlas or a book of maps, because there won’t be internet service so my phone and Google maps will be useless

4. A tool kit including a large hammer

5. A boy, perferably one who looks cute while slightly scruffy, can protect me, is handy, and can wield a gun.  Alternate: my dad.

6.  A gun (see number 5) and unlimited ammunition

7. My best friend, mostly because she comes pre-loaded with medical supplies and training tape which is useful in almost any situation, but also because we tend to be codependent.

8. Lots of socks and clean underwear

9. MREs for when we can’t break in and get stuff from zombie-fied grocery stores

10. Mascara because I never ever leave the house with out it

What do you need to survive the zombie apocalypse?  Am I the only one who thinks of these things?

Peanut butter and toilet paper. Everything else is gravy.
Coincidentally, that’s what’s in the trunk of the car for just such an emergency. Sadly, though, our building is not particularly zombie-proof. (Yes, we think about these things.)

Glad you remembered the toilet paper. We’ll take your car since it’s already in the beginning stages of packing. 🙂

Ok… Let’s see…

Flame thrower
Rustic battle-worn cotton-stretch outfit complete with rips, fish net accents and low neckline
Invincible hero (some options include Spiderman, Zorro, The Punisher, etc.)
Ability to make fireworks and (therefore) bombs
Never-emptying bottle of water
A pair of REALLY great heels
At least a handful of non-silly, very helpful survivors
Peanut-butter stuffed pretzel bites
and…. de-frizzer. Geezus… all that spandex can’t get spoiled by a bad fro!

How are you going to run from the zombies in your really great heels? Or is that so you are prepared for an impromptu cocktail party where you will meet said invincible hero?

Btw: The other half says,
1. Gun
2-9. Ammo
10. Water
