The diary returns! I’m splitting this dream into two parts. I had this one in the thick of all my zombie dreams in 2009, when I seemed to have one every single night for months. It features a zombie lifecycle I thought was very clever when I woke up.
I’m living in New Zealand, where there’s been a recent series of zombie attacks in our metropolitan area. Rather than evacuate or take military action, the overwhelming response from the population is to demonstrate against the zombies with picket signs and rallies.
By all accounts, the zombie infection isn’t as virulent as it is in movies, where whole cities can turn in a matter of days — it’s much more restrained here, and it’s as though we all believe zombie-ism is spread by lack of understanding.
