Diary Entry #1 – Arzar The Alien

Dear Diary,

Today is my first day on Earth. I came to this planet with the mission to determine if it was worth harvesting for the corporation. I have spent 30 minutes walking around this bland city, and so far have encountered nothing special. But now… now things are getting interesting! As I was wandering down an alleyway, which is equally as boring as everything else here, I found a pizza joint. The name is Pizza Planet and the sign tells me that they have the best pizza in the universe! I never knew Earthlings had such impressive technology that allowed them to discover space travel just shy of 20 years ago. Nevertheless, with me being from another planet far away, this place looks pretty good. So I decided to go inside…

The earthlings inside and working were very peculiar. They all looked and sounded the same, and they didn’t seem to be revolted by me walking in. I would expect them to run away or squeal with fear at the sight…

But, the opposite happened.

I was swarmed. Detained. Taken hostage by these rather large and disgusting beings. They placed me in the back of their building, tied up to some kind of machine. The one who appeared to be the leader – or at least the loudest and most powerful, walked up to me and began wolfing down a slice of pizza. He shoved it all into his mouth as crumbs came flying out from between his fat fingers.

It was at that moment that I knew it was over for me. There was no way for me to contact the motherboard for help and it was beginning to get dark out.

So, I decided to come up with a plan to escape. I knew I needed to find a way out of this place that these odd beings call a restaurant. I’m not sure what kind of sorcery is going on in this place, but back home, we prepare our food with a system. We enter the food we want into the system and it comes out 5 minutes later – fully prepared. So, what is going on here?

I’m starting to get worried. They placed me in this room where there are large containers full of strange liquid. There are also large machines that emit heat… lots of heat. And one of the earthlings is running to and forth bringing supplies to her station. The leader/loudest one walks in quite frequently, chomps down on a slice, then leaves.

But, this time he didn’t leave…
