About Me:

You can call me Sparky or Frankie. That's it. I used to be in the Detention Center for being a "Script Kiddie." But I don't do that anymore, it's a lot more interesting helping the Cyber Defenders!

Good Dog?

Daisy is either the best guard dog Iíve ever seen or sheís out of her kibble-loving mind. She is OBSESSED with that old computer downstairsóyou know, the one that the Bad Hatter is trapped inside. Day and night, she just sits in front of it and growls. And good luck trying to get next to it when sheís there! I donít think sheíd ever bite us, but her growl doesnít exactly sound friendly.

I only see her away from her post when Officer Ward is training her by the garden or when Jax manages to send her off to bed.

I wonder why sheís so hung up on that old powered-down machine? Maybe dogs really can smell evil. Honestly, I really donít care what she does, as long as she isnít eating my shoes.

Bad Dog

Jax is my friend. I really like her. Sheís always been good to me and weíve been through so much andÖandÖI canít stand her dog! There. I said it. Donít get me wrong Ė I usually love animals and they usually love me right back. But, DaisyÖletís just say we donít exactly get along.

The other day, Jax and I were hanging out in my room with a couple other cadets when her dog started growling at me for no reason at all!

And thatís not the worst of it! A few days later I walked into my room and, somehow, she managed to get in and tear apart my entire closet. Whatís with this dog? Iíve never been anything but nice to her and this is how she repays me? Maybe I should just do my best to stay away from Daisy. Then again, that would mean staying away from Jax, too. Ugh. Why canít life be simple?

No More Monster Face!

So, yeah, that took WAAAAY longer than they said it would. The bolts finally fell off (with a little wiggling) and now Iím finally back to normal!

I was surprised the other cadets didnít tease me that muchÖI mean, I know if it had happened to someone else, I wouldnít have been able to keep myself from teasing them a little. Not mean teasing, of course. Iím not that mean anymore.

Anyway, my parents will be really excited that our Christmas pictures wonít be ruined by my neck bolts. For a while there I thought I would have to wear this terrible turtleneck sweater my grandmother picked out for me. Honestly, Iíd rather wear the bolts for another month than wear that horrible thing. I hate turtlenecks!

Shouldíve Read the Warning

So, remember my Frankensteinís Monster costume? Well, it turns out the glue I used to stick the bolts to my neck wasnít meant to be used on skin. It didnít poison me or anything; I just canít get them to come off!

I called the company that makes the glue, but they werenít that big of a help. Apparently, Iím just supposed to wait until they fall off!

Now Iíve got to walk around for a month or so until these stupid bolts come off. Iím going to call a doctor and see if they know of anything thatíll remove them. Let this be a lesson to you Ė read the warnings on everything before you put them in, on, or near you!

Iím NOT Frankenstein!!!

Iím Frankensteinís Monster! Why is that so hard to understand? I tried on my Halloween costume today and everyone that saw me said, ďOh, great Frankenstein costume!Ē IíM NOT DRESSED AS FRANKENSTEIN! Frankenstein was the name of the mad scientist that created the monster, not the name of the monster itself!

I donít know why that bothers me so much, but it really gets under my skin! The only person that got it right was Maya. I was so glad, I rushed up to her and hugged her! The only problem is I was wearing my monster makeup and I put a big green smear on her nice white sweater.

Sorry, Maya! Iíll make it up to you, I promise! You can have half of my candy haul this year!

No More, Plz!

As fun as all that zany time travel was, Iím glad to be back in the good olí 2010s. I literally kissed my laptop when I got home. Iíll never take modern technology for granted again! I mean, can you imagine a world where every movie is in 2D? Horrible, right? Okay, well, maybe it wasnít all that badÖ

I know Jax blames herself for letting all the cyber villains escape, but honestly it couldíve happened to any of us. Iím just surprised she did as well as she did! I mean, that seems like kind of an odd thing to say, but she was pretty much on her own for two months and she made it with only two major problems! If it were me, I probably wouldíve gone crazy or accidentally burned the Academy down. I guess what Iím trying to say is this Ė you did good, Jax. Now that weíre all together, weíll deal with the baddies without a problem.

All Aboard The Fail Boat

I canít believe that plan didnít work! Iím so frustrated with all of this. I hate feeling helpless. Weíve decided to try to find where Captain Wits lived before starting the Academy and ask him for help. Who knows if thatíll do any good! I mean, if ALL the cyber defenders in 1995 couldnít help us, what can one guy do in 1986?

Iím sorry if I sound like a downer, but I just donít know how this is going to get us home. I think I just need to suck it up and get my head back in the game. Iím not one to give up on a fight, but I really hate being outsmarted. Oh well, today is a new day. Itís time to get tough or get lost!
