I have been out of commission for the last few days. They shut down the power downtown. These things are smart. God bless government buildings and their generators. The trick was finding it to turn it on. I am only comfortable with moving at night. Thats the only time I can see them. I still don't know what they look like. I have seen their eyes. They glow at night. They look like mother of pearl. They don't blink. There are so many of them.

It took me 2 days to get down from the 3rd floor of the library down to the basement safely. I have been searching for some kind of info on these things. Hoping that someone has posted some kind of knowledge on them. So far this and this are the best I can find. As I said I haven't found much.

I am hiding out in the boiler room now. There is only one way in or out. I locked the door. Hopefully I am safe. I am afraid I have locked myself into my own coffin. Please help. Someone, anyone.

Oh, god I am hungry.

I think this blog really goes along with the idea of citizen journalism that we read about for class. You are using the internet and this blog as a way to distribute information. I like that you included found video and photos that surfaced in the midst of the attack. If you haven't already, I urge you to go see George Romero's Diary of the Dead. Although it has some no-name bad actors, it has an underlying theme of citizen journalism and the importance(possibly the obsession) of creating our own accounts of crisis situations. The part in your previous blog about stations censoring the news made me think of the movie. Here's a review of the movie with really great insight on our use of technology to create our own uncensored news.

I think this is awesome. It is very imaginative and I really like the first person form of storytelling. The "I'm hungry" was a nice touch. The writing is very intimate which makes the reader feel like they are in the boiler room with you. I commend thee.

I use the 3rd person script-style narrative in my stories. Check it out.
