Firstly I am so trying this recipe [livejournal.com profile] taraljc linked to. Chocolate cake in a mug, what's not to love?

Also someone linked to this tiny flame war between Simon Pegg and Charlie Brooker on running zombies. CB argument can be boiled down to "Well the running zombies are your fault for making Shaun of the Dead too good."

Incidentally Shaun of the Dead is the only zombie movie I have ever seen, and is likely to remain the only Zombie movie I have ever seen. I could only watch it because Doug had watched it before and could tell me when to close my eyes and put my fingers in my ears. I am notoriously bad with scary/gory stuff. Not just at the time of watching, but in nightmares afterwards. I managed to watch Jurassic Park and the cinema with friends, but then went on to have nightmares for a month afterwards. Doug suggesting we went to see JP2 was enough to trigger a weeks worth of nightmares.

(Some of the effects can be quite humourous for the observer though - the very first time I played Doom, [original flavour] my avatar went round a corner, came face to face with some aliens, and promptly turned around and ran away. Doug couldn't stop laughing at me. Playing the original Tomb Raider, when attack by the T-rex in dinosaur valley, I freaked out so much Doug had to take over for me. /shame)

Zombies particularly scare me though, when playing Oblivion, (and I must get Bootcamp running so I can reload it. I adore Oblivion) if any cave, mine or fort had Zombies, I had to use an invisibility mod (CHEAT!) to get through the level. I couldn't cope when they attacked me. I FAIL SO HARD. ;-)

Favourite Tweet of the Day

In other news, I'm laughing at Jonathan Ross going through all the celebrity twitters and phoning/texting said celebrity up to find out if it's them or not. (And if it's not them, trying to persuade them to join twitter for real).
