Still Very Bored

Sorry, sorry for the late post. If you're wondering I haven't been killed in a freak gardening and/or vomit-choking and/or spontaneous combustion accident; just my computer is misbehaving. That out of the way, on with the new post.

Okay Vicki and the rest of the YTF are sleeping in the cave and as you probably guessed sleeping in a cave is very uncomfortable. This leads to her talking about her feelings for Judd which leads to me to scream at her to resist. Judd may not be as colossal a dick as St. Rayford or Our Buck but he's still pretty dickish.

Conrad meanwhile is still playing the double agent and doing a much better job than Lionel ever did at this game. Maybe by virtue of not being a main character that automatically makes him smarter than the other protags. Either that or the NWO is really dumb.

Okay next chapter, the YTF are still in the cave running low on food and water and they're still not sure if the GC is still looking for them because they have no way of communicating with the outside world. Now in the hands of a good writer, this would be a tense situation but again, the YTF are under divine writ of Ellanjay protection. So they draw straws to see who has to go back to the house to recharge the laptop (so they can read Token Jew's all important epistles) and get food. Surprisingly they're more concerned about internet than food, which makes me headdesk. If you're wondering, Lionel gets the short one so he has to go into the house.

Meanwhile, Morale Monitors decide to revist Mr. Stein suspecting that he knows more than what he's telling. Conrad is in a difficult position trying to help Mr. Stein while still pretending that he's a loyal GC patriot. Anyway, his section ends with one of the Morale Monitors pointing a gun at Mr. Stein's head.

I'm throwing in a third chapter because again, nothing is happening and nothing happens in the third chapter. Basically the YTF make it back to the cave only to discover it's full of snakes. Insert Snakes on a Plane joke here. Oh and Mr. Stein wants to go to Israel and be one of the 144,000 witnesses.

Sorry for the disappointing post. I'm starting to long for Rayford right now; he's so awful there's always something to talk about.

*facepalms* I'd think food and water would be pretty vital here! Not words on a screen one can always read later. (<_<)

But hey, Tim LaHaye - sorry, I mean Tsion Ben-Judah - is so very important! Really really so important. X-(

What is there to read that's new? How long does it take to work out a timetable of the end of the world? I suppose there might be details to be filled in, but "now is the time to lock the door to your shelter and leave the Unsaved to eternal torment, for the next six months" seems like a pretty easy message to send.

Maybe it's just me. :-)

Yup, they're teens alright.
