This has probably been done before, but I feel like writing, and I could use some ideas. I''ll start with an opening couple of paragraphs, and then you add a couple to it, etc, etc, ad infinitum (or till we get bored ). Please don''t try and bring it to a close, unless you''re trying to challenge us into finding ways out of impossible situations... --------- The air was hot and dry, and the golden sands stretched away in all directions, as far as the eye could see. The jeep hummed along the dusty track, and finally arrived at the campsite. I don''t know entirely why I was there; except that this was Shanwell''s last known location, near to the dig site that he''d discovered. And now, he was gone - disappeared, like water in the desert. And I - for a fee - had been hired to find him. ---------- Superpig - saving pigs from untimely fates - sleeps in a ham-mock at www.thebinaryrefinery.cjb.net

But...I couldn''t be bothered (the fools paid me half up-front anyway!), instead I went to sleep and let other people do my job.
But then, BOOM! The jeep exploded, I knew it - the aliens were upon us!

Sorry

After flying out of my exploding jeep, I realized this wasn''t the normal meat-and-potatoes investigation. Something must be up. Before coming here, I did read the travel bulletin. Evidentally this place is known for having alien sightings. So yes, Aliens, perhaps. However, I need more information... and new transportation... *he eyes a local caravan and their camels* Perhaps....

I could hijak a camel, kill the guy on it, and ride home!... But then i said to myself, who are we kidding? I went to the caravans, threatened to kill em if they didnt give me money and food. As it turns up, they only had 15 Colombian Pesos. Perhaps I can sell the camels

to a burrito stand, where they could turn them all into tomorrows special. But that would get only get me another 15 pesos. I think I''ll try trading them for a copy of E.T. so I can prepare myself for killing those pesky aliens. BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM what the ...

but unfortunantly, the idiot didnt understand a word i said, and started butchering E.T.. Now I was left without an alien, money, and any means of transportation. I was also out of food. The burrito guy understood me and gave me yesterdays special, it tastes... humanish... I expected it just to be what desert burritos taste like, but then i noticed a human eye in it!

"Look there''s a desert Yeti!" said my unmentioned compadre, Judith. "Let''s follow it!" I ejaculated.

So, having found this large mysterious mound of yogurt, we decided to fill our backbacks with it so we''d have something to eat. Unfortunately, just as Judith and I reached out to grab a large clump of it, she was suddenly engulfed by the sinister claw of the yogurt monster! I watched her hiking boots slowly sink into the goo, and suddenly I remembered

After whipping out my dictionary and making sure the word I meant was "stalk," I threw the beans (half out of desperation and half out of wanting something to eat that night on the cold, vast desert) upon the yogurt to see what would happen.

...Absolutely nothing. I always knew that story was hokey.

Having exhausted my last means of escape, I dove into the mound of yogurt only to find

that the yoghurt was hollow, and was actually a portal to an underground chamber!
Judith lay unconscious on the ground. I felt groggy. The walls of the chamber were covered with markings - egyptian, maybe - and in the center a small pedestal, like a sundial, stood.

I have a feeling this storyline may have been used by the Japanese.

burritos. While I ate, I tried to think - but the only thing I came up with was "mabey it wasn''t such a good idea to come here". Still deep in thought, I got up and walked into the gaping black hole that the set designer had informed me was a "secret cave".

playboy magazine! After quickly looking threw it, all the pictures and articles were about pornoographic candymen, but then, I came accross an article which talked about Shanwell, I felt that I was getting close to solving this mystery. I suddenly remembered that the fools were paying me per hour for my services... Suddenly I heard footsteps of...

...someone or something behind me. Then a tapping? I startled awake, still in my jeep. At the campsite. It was a dream, so I wasn''t any closer to finding Shanwell. I''d have to start all over.
The tapping came from the ranger. "The military is clearing the area. You''re going to have to leave."

AFTER we inspect your vehicle. I wasnt worried. I knew there was nothing wrong in there. THe plice dude went in my car, stood there for like 5 seconds, and put me under arrest for grand theft auto! Apparently, they said that I had stolen Shanwells car!

psybeira: nice.

Somewhere, a pin dropped; and reality jarred, and shattered.

"Wha?"
"I said they're clearing up. You'll have to move on, sir."
I pulled the jeep into gear and drove back the way I came, but, after a little way, swerved off the road and drove to some large rocks. Parking the jeep behind them, I climbed the rocks, and got out my binoculars to see what exactly the military were doing.

The sight that greeted my eyes as I looked through my high magnification binoculars was incredible.
They had put up several white tents, and people in uniforms were frantically milling around them. There were even generals on site. Something must be going on, but what?
Suddenly, ...

However, slowly, the sounds got more organised - I could almost hear the words, it was definitely getting clearer ...
