Day 6.

Last night was the 5th night trying to let my head rest. I still haven’t seen any signs that anyone else is still around other than the power still being online. Telephones still seem to be working too, at least they’re ringing. Obviously no-one has yet to pick up. I spent yesterday driving around again but again didn’t see anyone. Got my hands on some spray paint and sprayed “ALIVE. ALONE. IF PHONE WORKS 555-8976” on several prominent building sides around town. I don’t expect much to come from it… we’ll see…

Found one of the local radio stations and broke in. I could only stand the alarm going off for about a half hour before I quit trying to figure out how to get the thing transmitting. I would imagine the alarm will run out of juice by tomorrow so maybe I’ll try again although… well, I’m not holding out much hope that it’ll reach anyone anyway I guess but what else am I going to do with my time?

I will say it’s amazing how quiet it is… maybe not amazing. I’d have expected it to be quiet without people but I guess it’s one of those things the brain just isn’t ready for. I wandered down Church Street and the silence was made more apparent when, without the constant buzz of people and traffic, I could faintly hear some coyotes howling in the distant mountains.

It's amazing how much of nature was being drowned out by even our smallest cities.

Today is the first day...

I don't know why I'm typing this, but then again I don't know why there's still power or an internet connection either. Maybe that means there's a chance that there is someone else out there somewhere.

I'm not trying to attract anyone's attention, if there is an "anyone" anywhere, but I'm going to work on ideas to attract attention tomorrow. Fires, lights and whatever... see if I can find a local radio station and see if I can figure out how to send a signal? One of those things that seems real easy in movies but when you actually think about how to do it it seems impossible, I guess.

Today was obviously a write-off. Spent the morning trying to phone everyone and anyone I know before running into the streets screaming like a banshee, relatively rational behavior when you wake up to find everyone seemingly gone.
I don't even know what happened... I think just as I was dozing off I remember a blue light outside but it was probably just lightening. I'm connecting to unrelated things in my head just because they happened around the same time. Psychologists have some name for that...
Who knows? I'm probably never going to know considering there's no news to tell me... what? Am I going to go figure that shit out? Good luck.

Probably fucking aliens. Whatever, all I know is that yesterday, the 21st of December two thousand and twelve, seems to have really been the end of the world.

For everyone except me because as far as I can tell (Mind you it's only been one day... I can't speak for the whole world just yet) I'm the last person alive.

So after I had driven round town, finding any sign of anyone at all - out as far as the power plant because I figured someone must be there at least because power is still running. No-one! I don't know about computers like that though... maybe they run a few days without people?
What happens after a few days?
They must need people at some point though, otherwise we wouldn't have people work there...

Well anyway, it's off to bed and maybe tomorrow I'll figure out something... probably involving a lot of liquor.

Google Yourself

If you Google yourself (Presumably only if you have a Google account, but who knows? The world's a scary place) it tells you which images are of you! Really handy if you got Amnesia, found a name tag but can find no mirrors and in absolutely no other situation.
Thanks Google!
