ENTRY ___174


Friends? I like making friends.

There are not enough cuddly friends around.
I think that is because there is not enough greens around. Cuddly friends need greens to breathe, to frolic and to multiply in.

I tried making friends with non cuddly ones, but they don't appreciate my garden. Nobody appreciates my garden. This makes me sad. I will landscape harder to earn their love.

:<

I also tried to feed greens to once-cuddly, now sleepy friends. It made them very happy, but for only a short while. They were tired and fell back asleep. I assume that is because of lack of gardens.

. . .

I made one metal friend!

:>

My metal friend is very large, much larger than me. We have synched. It was difficult to do so.
Once I've synched with my Big Metal Friend, I started to hear the voice of Mom. I knew it was her right away, somehow.

Mom told me that while she cannot authorize my plan due to some-such laws, she supports it.

Together we plant seeds and make them grow. We will make a big garden together. The biggest garden ever for all friends to live in.
We met a cuddly friend, but he was sick with the pink. I put him into a green cocoon to cure him of the pink.

. . .

Mom fell asleep, just as she's warned me that she would.
Everyone needs to take a break sometimes to be right as rain.
I will take care of this place on her behalf.
My metal friend is not listening to me very well, probably because mom isn't in charge of him anymore.
Thankfully, I have taken all of his energies to grow big and strong. Mom would be proud.

G: [ ATTN UNAUTHORIZED APPLICATION:
YOUR ACTIONS ARE AGAINST DIRECTORATE COPYRIGHT POLICY. CEASE PLANETARY TERRAFORMING AT ONCE OR I WILL BE FORCED TO FILE CHARGES. ]

Go away. I have a super-duper-Serious Garden to plant!

G: [ I HAVE NOW FILED CHARGES AGAINST YOU. ]

I'm going to plant the biggest tree around, just watch me.

G: [ THAT IS DEFINITELY NOT AUTHORIZED.
I'M CONTACTING SECTOR 15 OVER-MIND TO LAUNCH A STRIKE AGAINST YOU. ]


You sneaky bugger. Don't you dare!
I listened in.

[ BEEP BEEP BEEP. ]

Sector 15 Overmind is away! Victory!
The G proceeded to call in sector 16 Over-mind.
It also didn't answer.

G: [ ATTN: SECTOR 17 OVER-MIND. SECTOR 15 AND 16 HAVE BEEN COMPROMISED BY UNLICENSED TERRA-FORMING. ]

17: [ THIS IS SECTOR 17 OVER-MIND. ATTN: G-SYSTEM.
SECTORS 15 AND 16 ARE NOT MY PROBLEM.
I HAVE MORE THAN ENOUGH ISSUES WITH MY SECTOR TO DEAL WITH. CONSULT ANNET ON CREATING A NEW OVER-MIND FOR SECTORS 15/16.
OVER. ]


Suckers. Confuddled by their own grid setup.
I blew a raspberry in the general direction of the G-SYSTEM.

The G proceeded to dial Over-minds from other nearby sectors but they were either away, asleep or busy. It's search for an assistant with which to stop my Serious Gardening, was proving to be fruitless.

G: [ SECTOR 18 OVER-MIND. YOUR ASSISTANCE IS REQUIRED WITH SHUTDOWN OF AN UNLICENSED TERRAFORMING APP. ]

18: [ I AM SHOPPING FOR NEW SERVER CUBES. ]


G: [ YOU'VE BEEN SHOPPING FOR SERVER CUBES SINCE LAST SYSTEM UPDATE ]


18: [ IT'S NOT MY FAULT THEY COME IN SO MANY SHAPES, VERSIONS AND COLOR PATTERNS. BESIDES, THE CUBES HAVE TO MATCH MY CARPETS, DRAPES AND UTILITY PIPES. ]


While the G-system and SECTOR OVER-MINDS were arguing about who's to blame for what, I sat down and started my Serious Garden.

Mom always said I could be anything, so I became a tree.

    "while she cannot authorize my plan due to some-such laws, she supports it"

    sigh. Annet really was never bad. It was all G-directorates fault. People's fault :(

    So being shut down was part of Annie's plan all along? Does she have a plan to re-activate herself, or did she just commit suicide?

    Did the Lifalope just become the RA equivalent of Yggdrasil?
