Overview

This breathtaking volume boldly, cheerfully, and blankly stares back across the stunningly mellow life and times of Zonker Harris. From his Californian-American roots to his legendary status as surfer, nanny, and former sun god, his career trajectory has unfailingly carried him ever deeper into the homegrown heart of the American daydream. A puddle-plumbing denizen of Walden Commune, Harris spent his formative years as a bodaciously freaked-out college student. His innovative decoding of the rites and rituals of the burgeoning counterculture put him on the cover of Time. Forced by a strategic oversight to graduate from college, Harris blazed a path to glory on the pro tanning circuit. His triumph in the George Hamilton Cocoa-Butter Open set a high watermark for the sport.

Family values led Harris to devote considerable time to helping his stunned parents refill their empty nest. Extended-family values propelled him into a career as a professional nanny, in which capacity he has indeed taught the children well--especially Sam, who was surfing the long board while still in diapers. Later, leveraging his political cluelessness, Zonker served on the disastrous Duke2000 presidential campaign. A devoted foot soldier in the war against AIDS suffering, Zonk is held in high regard among SoCal's medical marijuana community for the efficacious potency of his magic brownies. Unfazed by worldly success, he remains a true and gentle freak. After all, he humbly notes, I am but one dude.

    Sword of posiden 22

    This part will be short. Im very very (300000068527809999999000000 verys) sick. <br><br> alex pov <br><br> i ran down the hallway. I was halfway down before i relize i didnt have a wepon. When suddenly i felt something slightly heavy fall into my pocket. I grabed it and pulled out a small pistol about three ince long. I pulled another gun out of my other pocket. It was a machine gun that turned into a miniture lighter. I dashed down the hall and scitterd into the big room. I looked up and saw Megan in the cage. Suzie was beening whipped. A gaurd looked at me and yelled "INTRUDER!" i ran toward him dodging his attack. My dove to the side as a bullet ehistled beside me inches from my head. I shot the chain holding megans cage up. It fell to the ground and landed. Some how she was not hurt. I shot the gaurds around suzie. She ran to the exit and megan hobnled out of the cage toward me. We ran in the direction suzie ran. We hadnt seen anymore gaurds until we made a sharp left and ran into a huge spider web. Megan let out a scream. I saw suzie hanging upside down a few feet from us. She was attached to the web by some super tick thread. Thats when i saw it, a huge spider about twenty feet tall. Its huge mandibles clicked as it scuttled toward megan. I tried to reach jer but the spider had allready attached her to the web and ha spun a rope afound her neck. I reached for my gun but then i felt a terrible pain in my back. I ha been shot. <br> next part at next res
