All of Zomtober leads up to the last day of the month - Zomtoberfest!  This Zomtoberfeat weekend, I participated in my local Zombie Awareness Walk as a Zombrarian, then went to see Shaun of the Dead with my fellow zombrarians and our significant others.  A fun, and educational, time was had by all.

I also sat down and watched one of my traditional Zomtoberfest television specials - The History Channel's The Real Story of Halloween.  First of all, you can never really go wrong with a short documentary on a holiday, and The History Channel is light and fluffy enough to not dissapoint.  But this year, they also aired Zombies: A Living History which I freaking adored.  They rounded up authors like Max Brooks, Jonathan Maberry, Dr. Steven Schlozman, Daniel Drezner, and others along with anthropologists and zombie enthusiasts to talk about the history of zombies in a variety of cultures as well as the threat of disease/disaster/pandemonium and our ability to cope and survive.  It was amazing.  So amazing that if you're reading this right now, you'd better already have it set to record on your DVR or else be moving to pick up your remote, or else I might just have to give you librarian eyes.  Don't make me say it twice.

On a lighter note, I owe you all your last three Zomtober presents! First we go to Thinkgeek and their Zombie Attack Hoodie. Looks fun, doesnt' it?  Great for reenactments and training sessions on a budget.  Plus I bet it's snuggly.

Next we have a zombie-themed headband from Etsy seller JanineBasil.  Delightful, isn't it? For those formal Zomtober occasions when you want to celebrate the spirit of the holiday without getting fake blood on your evening gown. Ingenious!

Last but not least, it's no secret that I'm a knitter.  I'm also super sad that these unique stitch markers have already sold.  Still, we can enjoy tdozieart's sculpting skills and stalk her Etsy shop until she makes more, right?

I hope you have had an enjoyable and educational Zomtober, and that your Zomtoberfest is the perfect culmination.  Be safe out there!
