Colette's Meme

COLETTE'S MEME

1. How did you die? I drowned in Lake Oxoboxo

2. How long have you been gone? about nine months

3. Death age/true age? 16/16

4. What do you miss most about being alive? Hanging out with my friends

5. What, if anything, is cool about being a zombie? Nothing

6. How did your family react to you coming back? My father chased me off our lawn when I came back, and then my parents moved away without telling me where they were going.

7. Most humiliating moment as a zombie? See #6

8. Visible signs of zombiism? I'm very pale and very slow.

9. Goals/ambition? To find my older brother--I want to know what my parents told him about me.

10. "If I were alive today, I would..." talk to my parents about zombies and encourage them to be more understanding.

I really hope Colette gets to talk to to her older brother. It's horrible how there's so much negativity toward zombies. You guys aren't hurting anyone. Personally, i think you guys are the best thing to happen so far.

just for the record everyone---i thought this survey was a good idea because 1) i absolutely NEED to prove to my entire school as well as everyone else in America, that zombies definitely have feelings that are still very human, and just as human feelings, they need to be respected. 2) Many zombies (or maybe just some zombies) want to share with others about what their lives were and are like, and i think it's very important to listen if they want to open up, so other people can try to be more understanding. Those are my main two reasons for the survey, and i hope that i can get as many zombies as i can to try to fill it out so that others can hear their stories and opinions.

This survey is great! I also do hope that Colette does get contact with her brother. Its nice to know more about our fellow zombies.

I don't get why there's such a huge "before and after" divide with zombies. Once you come back, you're still the same person. Why the huge divide between who you "used to be" and who you now "are"? You're still the same! Maybe if more of you (like you, tommy) could focus on that, there would be a lot less of a problem. Yes, there are physical differences between your "new self" and "old self" but that's all they are--physical.

Colette - (I'm going to sound MUY estupido!)


She is probably the most promising differently biotic, I think.

I feel terrible about what her parents did to her!! What her father did no debe haber sido tan cruel! no fue requerido!

Man, her coming back is a blessing that they should embrace!

I do also hope Colette contacts her brother, and he doesn't do anything stupid like her parents.


So much love :)

Colette keep holding on things will get better! and if it helps i know how you feel...

I think Colette should tell her parents that she needs their support (as long as they don't throw rocks in the prosess LOL). if they can't accept her recent zomie-ness, than they should at least let her see her brother.

Lots of Love!!! ~ChrisyKins~

Tommy Williams said...

Thank you for your posts. I thank you, Colette thanks you.

Mocatajoy--I agree with you.

Poor Colette. I feel bad for her. I think the survey is a good idea. I hope Colette finds her family again.

You rock Tommy!!

Sarah said...

That is so sad how her dad chased her off the yard when she came back. i hope she find her brother!

Mind if I answer the questions, Tommy?

Since I can't get your immediate response, I'm just going to post regardless. I hope that that's okay!

1. How did you die?
Car crash on a CT highway.

2. How long have you been gone?
28 days, 3 hours

3. Death age/true age?
15/16

4. What do you miss most about being alive?
My friends and food... especially ice cream now that summer is coming around. The ability to have future children.

5. What, if anything, is cool about being a zombie?
Not having to sleep, though I kind of miss dreaming.

6. How did your family react to you coming back?
Very supportive. Leave it at that.

7. Most humiliating moment as a zombie?
"Waking up" in the hospital... more frightening than humiliating, but you get the point.

8. Visible signs of zombiism?
Slow. Very pale. Better use of make-up these days, though I don't know how that came about.

9. Goals/ambitions?
Equality.

10. "If I were alive today, I would..." be eating an ice cream with a living boy holding my hand.

Best of luck with future questioning.

I feel so bad how all your friends and family abanded you, Collete. I hope you can find your brother, but beware: he might be surprised. People need to respect zombies. They didn't choose to come back! They were chosen by some almighty force, or somthing like that. Hang in there, Collete!

Collette's story depresses me. I hope she sees her brother and i hope her parents really regret what they did.

Christine said...

I feel really abd for colette. What her parents did was legal but very rude and proved they dont care about her. I dont like that. I mean i would be scared to if i saw a person i knew was dead but then i would figure that she was one of the "zombies" (in a nice way) Plus i feel twice as bad as when her friends said,"NO i won't let you in." But again its scary.
I love this book because it has drama that any school would have and the realationship and love drama. thats why i rate u like a 100 out of a 10 :) lovwe you colette ur caracter is soo mysterious lol

Poor Colette. She should meet her brother & family to try to convince them she is still there only in "zombie" form.I HATE all the bad blood with families and zombies. It is unnessary.
