Who wants a zombie cow?

I know I'm going to regret this.

I have enough to worry about sleeping at night as I am terribly afraid of the dark and am convinced there really IS a boogey man.

That zombie cow is very cute, but it would be the death of me if I woke in a fright looked over and saw that thing sitting atop my desk.

Now, my son on the other hand has a real macabre sense of humor and would love to get his hands on that cow. Although I have a sneaking suspicion if he got it, I would be finding it all over the house in the most unexpected places.

Such as when I go to the pantry, the dreaded cow would be lurking between the garbonzo beans and diced tomatoes.

Or in the laundry room when I reach up to pull down the fabric softener and find a pair of dead eyes staring back at me from atop the shelf.

I must be grateful then that I live in another country and that having said afflicted cow shipped here would be prohibitive.

It would, wouldn't it?

Please say yes.

Is it bad to say that I want it? I would love it and keep it on my writing desk as a reminder of the McK challenge and what will happen tome if I fail.

Aerin said...

BTW - JC - yes, there is.

I would love a zombie cow! It is so cute yet horrible! I can say that safely knowing my wordcount this week has been yummy (2946 fairy words and lots of pages edited).

Oh yeah. Count me in.

That's like yelling, "Who wants ice cream?"

You know what the answer is.

Son Of Whirl loves cuddlies and this would complement his collection brilliantly. Plus, I could steal it off him.

My daughter already has a frankenstein teddy bear so I think we're good when it comes to mutilated cuddlies thanks! It is cute though. Sortof. I think I'd want to wash it and make it all better.

Also - just to let know I edited 4 chapters last night. I'm not sure how many words that was but it was a good two hours of work.

Can the claw take one step back puh-leeease?

You know, we could start a blog: The Travels of the Zombie Cow.

Everyone gets to "host" Cowie Bunga (or whatever the heck we name it) and duly notes the travels and adventures of the cow with photos and letters from Cowie Bunga and everything.

We can even make official accoutrements like luggage and a passport and whatnot. (You know you can buy fake passports online? I could get one for the cow, and I could get both US and Canadian customs stamps on it, too.)

JaneyV said...

I LOVE that idea!

The traveling zombie cow. Hmmmmm.

If it made it to my house, it would lose body parts. *sigh* We have animal fluff parts all over the living room on a regular basis. My children are blood thirsty.

I have coveted Zombie Cow since it was first unveiled. And I would love to have one, though I am sure that it would mysteriously end up in the dustbin within hours of its debut in my home office.

What I really want is a vicious pack of meerkats.

Cowie could also have an autograph album whereing all her hosts sign and write notes. And souvenirs of her travels and everything.

When she visits Peter in SF she can get an inappropriate piercing or a tatoo.

writtenwyrdd said...

(Sorry, but this idea amuses me.)

pjd said...

But, is there such a thing as an inappropriate piercing or tattoo in San Francisco? Seems like everything is appropriate here.

writtenwyrdd said...

Given the people I used to hang with, I think you might be right, Peter. But I was thinking about a piercing that was inappropriate for a cow, actually. :)

Just a quick update I finished my short story today. Another 1,823 new words.
