Fly me to the moon...

Natalie L Sin has a cool post about some God like things she has done as a writer... And being a Goddess (ahem!) myself, I thought I'd steal the idea and do a top ten of my own evil and strange deeds. All fictional of course.

10. Stopped zombies going to the Oscars.
9. Sent a bunch of senile seniors to the moon.
8. Ran down a giant chicken.
7. Threw a bunch of dead zombie Dolly Parton impersonators out of a plane.
6. Nuked my home town.
5. Dismantled a homicidal robot.
4. Removed the face of a serial killer.
3. Flown half-way across the U.S. on a neon sign.
2. Turned a kid into a paper doll.
1. Stopped time.

It's my story for the Bloody October anthology... :)

It was a really fun post to do.

Natalie L. Sin said...

Wait, I can nuke my hometown? I knew I forgot something!

Catherine J Gardner said...

I think I may do it again - I don't think I did enough damage first time. :)

Aaron Polson said...

Nice list. Creepy, but in a good way. ;)

Catherine J Gardner said...

Creepy is always good. ;)

Sounds like you have one heck of a great time every time you sit at your computer. Now, about that home town, you wouldn't mind telling me where it is so I can avoid it, would you?

BTW, the earlier anonymous was Gustavo - sorry about that, it's just that I've gotten used to LJ recognising me instantly that I do this all the time when I'm on a different system!

J.C. Tabler said...

See, this is why I'm going to do this list now...

Jeremy said...

Yeah, me too.

Hi Gustavo - if you click the OpenID button it lets you use your livejournal account. Oh, and I'm always forgetting to put my name on comments I live on LJ.

JC, Jeremy - it's such a cool idea isn't it? Kudos, Natalie.

Does sound fun (hey, who wouldn't want to nuke their city?... I'll be in the Bloody October Anthology myself.

You have a cool blog here; I remember a lot of those zines of old listed in your biblio. I added you to my author links, hope that's all right.

Cheers,

Speaking of zombies...

I just saw this at tor.com: http://tor.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=blog&id=4258

Not sure if you have a zombie novel lying around, but I thought I'd give you a heads-up (hehe) just in case.

Thank goodness those zombies didn't make it to the Oscars! Although they might have improved the pre-awards shows no end.

Catherine J Gardner said...

Agh!

I have two zombie novels. One for children (far too short) and one for adults at 141,000 words long and only in hardcopy. Long story. I keep meaning to transfer it to the computer - that is type it up and edit it of course because it kind of sucks a little bit - but keep putting it off. Kicks herself.

And double agh! They didn't want a synopsis.

LOL! This has cheered me up. :)

I recommend trying it at home. :)
