I'm joining up with the Colony Farm zombie-clearing crew later. Now I'm at yesterday's site. Jason's cache is gone. He left a note: "thanx"

Shorty hears something.

06:57 AM #
Shorty is focusing her attention on a nearby overgrown field. She sniffed and wagged her tail a bit, so, not a zombie or strange scent.

07:12 AM #
I called out: "Jason? Want to talk for a bit? Want to meet my dog, Shorty? You could play with her a bit if you like." No answer.

08:02 AM #
It took awhile, but Jason did come out of the field. He's here now, tossing a stick for Shorty to fetch. It's like a pre-zompocalypse scene.

08:04 AM #
Jason said thank you for the candy and for the jewelry. He showed me how he threads the rings onto his necklace. He's wearing a fortune.

08:10 AM #
Jason is curious about my Blackberry. He said "Internet's down, dummy." I told him that, thanks to @ProfPierson, my Tweets still go out...

08:13 AM #
...And that because of that strange green glow in the sky--the anomaly that presaged the zombie plague--my Tweets travel between worlds.

08:16 AM #
He doesn't believe me. Well, I can't blame him. But with things as strange as zombies running around, you'd think he'd cut me some slack.

08:19 AM #
Maybe if some of you out there who can read this @ reply me with something for Jason, he'll believe me. I'll show him your messages.

08:25 AM #
Hi @gingerkytten. Jason says he doesn't believe in you. (Sorry! The kid is stubborn.)

08:29 AM #
Ha, that got a laugh out of him, @gingerkytten

08:31 AM #
Jason says it's always Halloween now, @khennings. Not sure if he means because of the Zs or because 2009 Halloween decorations are still up.

08:33 AM #
Hi @taylorea. Jason says he knows how to be quiet. He's getting into this now that he can talk about his zombie-killing skills.

08:35 AM #
Hi @joplinspig. Jason says he's the best there is at watching and waiting. I agree that being good at it keeps smart survivors alive.

08:36 AM #
@gingerkytten Jason wants you to know that he's seen real zombie bus drivers so be careful.

08:38 AM #
Oh, believe me, he knows! He's not short on ego. RT @joplinspig @WausauLoner He is a courageous kid!!!

08:39 AM #
Jason says, "No! Don't be silly @gingerkytten! Zombies are dumb dumb dumb dumb!"

08:41 AM #
Jason doesn't understand how the anomaly's "weakness between worlds" works, but I do: You're in danger if you see this, @gingerkytten

08:47 AM #
@taylorea Jason says "Use strings with alarm bells on them."

08:50 AM #
You've sidetracked Jason, @Azulien. Now he wants to know what games I have on my phone. He's still very much a kid, despite the zombies.

08:57 AM #
True, @taylorea. Jason says the bells are only for when you sleep "Because people have to sleep and zombies don't. Zombies suck."

09:01 AM #
@taylorea He won't tell. He thinks I'm trying to trick him into giving away where his treasure is. Now he doesn't believe you're real!

09:03 AM #
@Azulien Is that a game? Jason says zombies don't eat plants. He's right on that point.

09:09 AM #
@Azulien Well, there is this spreading weed that can live in soil where zombie blood has spilled, but defense? I wish. Jason likes the idea.

09:10 AM #
@taylorea Jason got a little quiet when he read that you've adopted some other kids. He is just a child, after all.

09:43 AM #
@taylorea Your tweets are getting to Jason. I don't think he has anyone.

09:50 AM #
@Azulien Just the lucky. It was a steep learning curve.

11:41 AM #
Jason ran off again. I think I saw a tear in his eye after a tweet. Well, I think I made some progress with him today. Thanks for the help.

12:54 PM #
@gingerkytten Unfortunately, all I get is a time-out error when I try to visit a Web page or send a photo. The anomaly can't handle much.

12:55 PM #
@gingerkytten So it won't help me or Jason, but I'm glad you're doing the good work of helping others.

Up late trying to regain ham radio signals The Anomaly's hum keeps interfering with. Heard something about Aleutian Island refuges. #zombies
