Be Prepared.


'Tis I.

As you probably know, December 21st is coming up.

(No, I don't think the world will end on that day.)

However, the Zombie Apocalypse is a different matter.

My question for you is How prepared are you?

If you are unsure of the answer to this question, I have taken the liberty of putting together a short multiple choice quiz to determine your degree of readiness in the face of a Zombie attack.

Here goes.

ONE. Where would you go if you woke up and your town was infested with zombies?

a) Walmart.

b) Nowhere, I'd stay put.

c) Your grandmother's house.

TWO. You're backed up against a wall, with Zombies coming at you from all directions. What would be the best way to escape them?

a) Point away from them, scream "Hey! What's that?" and then run away.

b) Douse them with gasoline and light 'em up.

c)  Curl into a ball and sob loudly.

THREE. Someone has come to take you to safety, and you have 5 minutes to gather what you want to bring. What do you take?

a) Your phone, your laptop, and your gaming system.

b) Food, blankets, and matches.

c) As many of your photo albums as you can carry.

FOUR. What is your favorite color?

a) Orange.

b) Blue.

c) Red.

FIVE. You and the group of people that you've banded together with are going to take a last stand against the Zombie horde. When they are handing out the weapons, which one do you take?

a) The bow and arrows with a canister of rags soaked in gasoline and a lighter.

b) A double-bladed ax with a long handle.

c) The shotgun.

Okay. Got it all filled out? Highlight down from here-
If you got-
Mostly a's: Not too bad. You might actually survive. Then again, maybe not. 
Mostly b's: Good for you! You'll probably live. And if you don't, you will have tried your very best.
Mostly c's: You need help. Find your local geek. Get them to show you the ropes. You could use it.
-to here to see the right answers.

So now that you know your results, act on them. After all, the Zombies might be coming. Don't be caught unprepared.

Miranda out.

A Current Obsession.


Question: Have you heard of the Piano Guys?

Answer: (Should be Yes. If it's not, prepare to be enlightened.)

The Piano Guys are actually a guy who plays the piano and a guy who plays the cello.

They do so quite well and are really awesome.

For example, one of their songs is a version of One Direction's What Makes You Beautiful, played by five guys on one piano.

Pretty epic stuff.

Here is a link to one of my favorite songs by them.

Piano Guys- Peponi.

Enjoy. Join the obsession. Miranda Out.

The Elusive Art of Focus.


Focus is an art.


Like any art, it can be developed.

Not like film.

Through practice.

My problem?

I tend to lose focus while practicing.

I'll be honing my focus skills, going along well, and then suddenly- poof! My focus is gone.

I am sure that I am not the only one with this issue.

However, it is a choice.

Bind ourselves down to focus and get things done, but miss some of the greater moments in life?
Or never make your deadlines, but be able to embrace the small things in the world around us?

You can see my dilemma.

But now I have grown bored with typing.

Goodbye.  Miranda out.
