Over the past couple weeks I’ve shared a few tips for surviving among the living them you’re a zombie in partnership with shomi Canada to promote the new show iZombie. This week for chapter 3 of The Zombies Guide to Surviving Among the Living, we look at easy ways to blend in at dinner parties.

Always make sure you’ve got your phone close by, if we learned anything from the first two chapters it’s that humans are totally addicted to texting and are never without a mobile device.

Don’t even think about taking a bite before snapping a photo of your food. You’ll notice this human behaviour is very common at any public eating facility. It’s a trend that’s totally taken over human eating rituals.

Once you’re managed to get past the small talk and are seated at the table, snap a selfie. Then snap another after your first bite. Share how great our food it with the world on your fav social network.

Avoid making eye contact and if you’re feeling bored, pick up your phone and text like you’ve got something really important happening. Even if it’s just jargon. Humans will assume you’re engaged in an intense text conversation.

These tips will help any zombie trying to make it in a human world. This is my last post about The Zombies Guide but I’m passing the torch to Will Wong and Daniel (Do The Daniel) for the next  chapters.

Last week I introduced you to The Zombies Guide to Surviving Among Living as part of my partnership with shomi, and my love for all things zombie. This week, we’re onto Chapter 2 of the guide, communicating like a human. If there’s anything I know REALLLLLY well it’s communicating like a modern millennial. Here’s a couple tips (and GIFs) on just that!

 

If you’re a zombie girl (boy) living in a human world, you want to hide all chances of someone recognizing your cravings for brains or zombie-like drone in your voice. They key here, always text. Don’t pick up that phone!

When texting, avoid all zombie related conversations like eating brains, your fav blood type, inability to tan, or again your craving for brains.

Make sure you use short forms like OMG, IRL, TBT, OMW, WTF, and FTW. Also, try to use as FEW words as possible, one word answers are great! Typing ‘kk’ to a response is sure way to show friend that you’re a true human (you might even annoy them like their other BFFS).

If someone tries to spark up a conversation, reach for your phone and pretend it’s an important call “I’ve gotta take this’. Then walk away. You’ll be able to avoid small talk without seeming (too) rude.

Humans can be kinda touchy-feely, so another tip to communicating is to give in, and hug it out.  It’s gonna be weird, but after a while you might begin to like it.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post on communicating when you’re a zombie jus’ tryna live amongst the humans. Check out the trailer for iZombie here and get yourself a free 30-day trial here.

As you might know, I’m quite the expert in being a zombie, or at least dressing like one! Well, my skills in zombiesm have paid off! Over the next three weeks I’ve teamed up with shomi to deliver you some tips on how to survive as a zombie amongst a world of humans.

The new 13-part one-hour drama, iZombie (from the brains that brought you Veronica Mars) is now available to Canadians, exclusively on shomi.

Some notes on the above tips from my professional experience as someone who has taken about 10,000 selfies. In order to appear extra human, take selfie in any public space. Stop, drop, selfie anywhere and everywhere. Especially in the middle of a busy sidewalk, at the mall, just be careful not to selfie while crossing the street. You might die again. Another tip is to add a filter, or even double filter to make yourself look less dead. I personally like, Rise, Lo-Fi, and Valencia in Instagram to add a bit of extra brightness.
