We Don’t Live on the Surface Anymore – Part Five

Part 4 A straight line between me and the building across the park does exist, but there are a hundred or so zombies along that line and I don’t like those odds.  I do like bagels and french fries. Not death by monsters. I know I should take a moment to enjoy the scenery, breathe … Continue reading We Don’t Live on the Surface Anymore – Part Five

We Don’t Live on the Surface Anymore – Part 4

Part 3 I kept coming back to a memory today. In Duckburg, we have a circus/carnival area that was established by our one clown. While I have never visited this circus/carnival because it was established by a clown, I have thrown bags of rocks into it. One because forget that clown, and two there aren’t … Continue reading We Don’t Live on the Surface Anymore – Part 4

We Don’t Live on the Surface Anymore – Part 3

Part Two I cannot believe how big the trees are up here.  I’m walking down a dirt path surrounded by trunks so wide they would clog every tunnel ever built underground.  We could finally be rid of Cogston! No, no, that’s mean. They’re good people. They just...it’s hard to explain. Vines are creeping up and … Continue reading We Don’t Live on the Surface Anymore – Part 3

We Don’t Live on the Surface Anymore – Part 2

Part One The surface is bright! The artificial sunlight underground prepared me for nothing! I was able to find shade, but now I blink and see bright discs. This is obnoxious. And dangerous. On the plus side, zombies talk all the time and loudly. I haven’t heard many, I assume this is due to the … Continue reading We Don’t Live on the Surface Anymore – Part 2

We Don’t Live on the Surface Anymore

We don’t live on the surface anymore. Not for lack of trying. For a time, humanity was all about trying to retake the “world that was” from the hordes of undead zombie monster things. Whole armies were raised only to join the enemy in pretty short order. Not exactly a winning strategy. So people live … Continue reading We Don’t Live on the Surface Anymore

Shadow River Park Evacuation

Zane Lusk began another day stocking the shelves of Shadow River Park Gas-N-Go.  He imagined his promotion to the assistant manager position would have brought an end to such menial tasks, but he was wildly wrong. Painfully wrong. Now he was responsible for stocking shelves whenever any stocker called off sick and he had to set … Continue reading Shadow River Park Evacuation

The Day Job Journal

Week three This place has a cafeteria! There's a whole group of chefs and line cooks and a nutritionist who mostly gets yelled at by the chefs and line cooks.  It is amazing.  I am thoroughly enjoying spending time here as it gets me far, far away from my tall-wall cubicle and out among colleagues … Continue reading The Day Job Journal
