New Day #290

Today my up-for-anything friend Tim and I began learning the zombie dance from Michael Jackson's "Thriller." Why? In preparation for the upcoming Thrill the World event, of course, a global act of silliness in which people in 96 cities in 12 countries all perform the zombie dance at the same time.

I rehearsed at a lesbian bookstore with a bunch of hipsters who also showed up for something called Homorobics, which was an old school "pain with Jane" style workout. They all dressed in leg warmers and head bands ironically.

I may have been the only person in the room to remember when that look actually was hip.

That look never was really hip with my high school set.

But maybe if the zombies wore legwarmers....now THAT would be quite the show.
