RECAP from previous Episode 4b:
S/he/it was going full speed at me and before I could duck

Episode 5a: CLOSE ENCOUNTERS

…I was down. Dunno what hit me (I mean how is it that s/he/it could be like a missile?!) but there I was on the ground, only feeling pain, pain, pain. I couldn’t think of anything but the pain. I couldn’t think of trying to get away, figure out what’s going on, what to do, even seeing where the pain came from. I screwed my eyes shut, as if that would save me from harm.

RECAP from episodes 1 – 3:

When me and the birds flew to the moon, the tree dripping with lollipops/lollipops and Blackberries vanished the moment bobbleheads popped out of bubbles and came crashing down shattering into millions of pieces that regrouped, morphing into giant strips of turkey bacon but when we bit into them…


Episode 4a: INTO ANOTHER DIMENSION

Poof! We were each individually transported into another space and time. I dunno what happened to the birds but where I was seemed like something from the future. There were lots of people all over only they weren’t walking around; it was like they were swimming in the air–not like the crawl, more like the breaststroke or treading and diving in the air, swim/flying around other people or swooping/swooping into tall, thin building structures.

RECAP from Episode 1 and Episode 2:

When me and the three birds flew to the moon, it felt like we were in heaven on account of the tree dripping with lollipops/lollipops and Blackberries but the big action was when the bobbleheads popped out of bubbles that came crashing down shattering into millions of pieces that regrouped, morphing into…


Episode 3: HUNGER

…giant strips of turkey bacon using their wrinkly wavy bodies to spring up and down in lock-stepped organized lines. Like marching ants encircling an object, they took great care to avoid us (unlike some kamikazi bobbleheads we know).

Seeing as all this time me and the birds didn’t have a bite to eat we jumped at the chance to get some bacon down our throats. It wasn’t easy because they’d been carefully avoiding us but after a couple of tries we each were able to jump up (or fly atop of, for the birds) onto the darn things sinking our teeth (beaks for the birds) into the bacon.

Obviously, these weren’t normal bacon strips (as normal as turkey bacon can be) so the moment we bit into them…

RECAP of Episode 1

The three little birds and I flew to the moon where we saw a lollipops/lollipops and BlackBerries laden tree but when we went to pluck the pops, some kinda bubbly like thingies oozed up and started popping all around us. And what popped out from those bubbles were…


Episode 2: AN ENCOUNTER WITH MISSILES OF A DIFFERENT KIND

Funny thing was, the moment those bobbleheads popped out of the bubbles, the tree was like, poof! It vanished into thin air, just like that!

Man, just when I was salivating for some sweet/sweet treats.

The thing is, when the bobbleheads popped out they eventually came crashing back down like guided missiles targeting us. We had to scramble for our lives, running in zig zags/zig zags to avoid the once innocent bobbles that shattered on contact into a million pieces. Just like in the movies, the shattered pieces regrouped, morphing into…

What you do on the web is nobody’s business but your own.

Not.

Unless you purposely go into hiding, everything you do on the web is up for grabs. Ad blocking, cache clearing, private/anonymous browsing and other under-the-radar methods can only cover so much. But let’s save all that for another chapter.

For now, let’s just say your web comings and goings aren’t being used by shameless data gatherers testing the limits of the law while trying to make a buck, and cops won’t be coming anytime soon knocking on your door for some nefarious online activity that would put your mother to shame.

For now, let’s slip on rose colored glasses and just see what’s out there without a shadow of the dark side.

Like…
– Researching that obscure but eye opening factoid that may put your paper over the top for the class that could be just the thing to get a leg up on your future prospects

– Looking for a job out of the millions of job search sites listing billions of jobs that don’t seem to make a dent on unemployment

– Finding a diagnosis your doctor missed since you weren’t able to go into all the details of the symptoms during the visit that went by in a blink of an eye (even though waiting in the waiting room was way long)

– Catching the latest next-best-thing/drama on TV (programs from all over the world and you get to do subtitling on the fly in any language, even Esperanto) that can now be viewed on the web from sites that increasingly show ads though still not as many as on TV

– Listening to music you otherwise would never in a pre-www world listen to

Hanging out with folks to chat, get tips, or play voyeur to the stupidest (self proclaimed) and coolest things people do all over the world who want the whole world to see them do it whether it be on YouTube, Facebook or other social nooks and crannies of the web

– Gawking at all kinds of paintings, sculptures, photography, whatever the heck they call art without all the pretense

– So many other things: news, answers to all your questions, reviews on anything under the sun, you name it…
