I can’t believe it’s been SOOO long since I last wrote you! I’ve missed you all.  As usual, I was having problems at school, so my parents wouldn’t let my blog. Then I had to deal with summer school. I finally finished yesterday. Can you believe they barely let me drive or go to the mall for months? That’s just messed up.

I know you’re wondering–it’s July 4th, why aren’t you watching the fireworks, Ripley?  Fireworks are super dangerous for us terminators, even partial terminators like me. If one tiny spark hits us, we can short circuit. I had a spark land on my leg when I was a kid, and I thought I was going to die. The pain was insane! I was lucky it didn’t hit my CPU.  I had to sit in the E.R. waiting room with over 100 other terminators. It was not fun.

Since my accident, we’ve always stayed inside and watched the fireworks on TV.  We went to a barbecue earlier today at a human neighbor’s house but left early. Can you believe they served hard-boiled eggs? They know we aliens can’t eat eggs, since, hello, we are born from them! It really freaks us out when non-aliens eat them.

They did have an awesome cake at least:

Hope you had a fun Fourth of July!  Hope you terminators stayed safe!

Part alien. Part human. Part terminator. All mixed up.

    Glad you’re back. Fix your CPU so that you behave at school 😉

  4. Welcome back Ripley… I was wondering where you’d gone… I figured it was school… or the future… or LV-426…
