The Chosen - Part 12d - by Nova

Rick had shown up at the end. It took me about 45 minutes to get to him. Everybody may have disappeared but they hadn't gone far. As soon as I started moving towards the picnic tables to sit down they came popping back out. It was a 100 questions time. Eventually I yelled "Enough! Go!"

Rick wanted me to come see the video before he uploaded it. "You got to see this Chosen!" He was obviously excited about it.

"I don't want to see it.


He looked so crestfallen that I had mercy on him. "Rick. I was there. Just post it."

"I'll look at it Rick." This was Sharon of course. I watched her walk with Rick chattering away a mile a minute. I seriously considered telling Roy to pack the car and let's roll. Let them figure out what to do on their own.

Roy was smoking his second Newport. He was just laying back watching me deal with the 100 questions except when someone asked him for a cigarette. He told them "Sorry" and blew smoke in their face. I saw them look at me, back at Roy, then to me again. I ignored him. He went away. Eventually it got back to being just me and Roy.

"So what's it going to be Chosen?"

"Roy, You ever get that itchy feeling? You know the one that tells you to get moving. Like now, if not sooner?"

He paused and blew a cloud in the other direction. That was good. The next time he blew one in my face I was going to knock him upside the head with STAFF.

"Yeah. Sure do. Don't need to hear bugles anymore either."


  1. It's time.

    Elwood: It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses.

    Jake: Hit it.

  2. wonder if the video will show the demon escaping the husk....

  3. Pssst. Hey buddy...I've got some CitiGroup preferred bonds--86% off. It's the best deal this year, really.

  4. D^2,



    I thought about that. You could probably special effect it somehow and people would believe it.


    Citi must die. Chase and BOA too

  5. What kind of music do you usually have here?

    Oh, we got *both* kinds: country AND western.

    . . .

    They're not going to catch us. We're on a mission from God.

    . . .

    That ain't no Hank Williams song!

  6. Don't forget that Wells-Fargo owns/is-owned-by Watchovaya (and their TBuck in mystery-value FL and SoCal already-defaulted-on-but-not-reported-as-such stinky paper that no one at W-F will talk about). I have an account there (sporting 3 figures!) just in case the Forever-Free-Checking account that Chase inherited from WaMu is ended by the FDIC during a raid.

    I'm loving this Pre-Zones living!


  7. I'm loving this Pre-Zones living!

    Me too. I splurged on a Droid 2, whcih broke every rule I've ever had about phones - small, cheap, simple-bordering-on-stupid - 'cause I figure: it's not real money - it's just FRNs. Might as well have some fun while we still can. Today becomes tomorrow soon enough.

    (Of course I'm still prepping, too.)

  8. I think a Droid is part of prepping. You will need to call 911


    nice image!

    Pondering a used iPod Touch with 64GB to surf unlocked wi-fi nodes. Starbucks just went unlocked, but it might not last.

    911 is best called with a phone found or bought for cash at thrift store. New phones give away too much info as soon as you connect.


  10. You could always drive a business campus. You would probably find a few hot spots there
