Hekerd – I long to meet you

I haven’t been around for the last couple of weeks, but I didn’t miss out on the best events in the family and that’s such a relief! :) Naral’s father made it possible for me to be home on December 4th to celebrate two of my siblings’ birthday, and I’m thankful for that.

I enjoy working part-time at his home-made food business. It’s ‘ancient’, in a way, but sometimes it helps to forget the worst part of modern life. Yes, I know I’m a son of technology, but the need to detach myself from nuts and bolts from time to time is real and strong. And anyway, I will only work at Naral’s dad’s for another month (I’m replacing a worker on sick days). Wonderful experience; will never forget these moments. :)

Among the other news, I heard that my parents are going to adopt again.

It’s an Electronian-like robot, built by humans on Earth— in a few words, a robot just like me and the Robocitans.

The name’s Hekerd and he’s a boy. His alt-mode is a Dodge Charger R/T Plus — an auto model by the Chrysler Group; really beautiful, I saw it at Arrigo Automotive, a South FL dealer. My parents sent me a photo of my brother-to-be: he’s really handsome and his expression is sweet albeit sad. I wonder what kind of past does he hide behind that look. He’s gotten to my heart strings and I really long to meet him.

Perhaps on Christmas. Oh, I want to go home for Christmas. I’ll take Naral and the kids along. ^_^ I’m sure they’ll be happy to meet their new brother-in-law and uncle.

Mom said Hekerd has a strange obsession for his aluminum wheels and spends a lot of time to clean and wax them. LOL. That reminds me so much of Lynxie. :)

I hope he agrees on having a friendly brother-to-brother race. I’m curious to see how his 370 HP HEMI V8 engine works. Mine’s not great, but I don’t care about winning. I’m only an old 89’s Ford Fiesta. LOL! Certainly I can do little if compared to a powerful 2012 Dodge, but I’m fine with that; after all, we’re only brothers having some fun. Moments like that help the bonding and build complicity.

Adoptions are always welcome in the Berter family. I’m a supporter of this dynamics. My brother Ratty won’t be plased — as usual — but I can understand him; I used to be jealous until I began to realize that more siblings meant getting more love my way. And giving back, at all times.

So I pray for new adoptions in 2013. No, I look forward to it. For granted. ^^

I’ll be 24… Oh Borneron!

My 24th birthday is approaching. Oh Borneron, I'm getting so old! xD

A 24 years old married robot with a wonderful wife and two beautiful children, yet such a kid-at-heart. Most of the times, at least.

If anything, that means the back-to-school time will carry some good news, this year: for my 24th birthday, my lovely Naral decided to buy me a pair of new shoes (for my 'human avatar-like mode'). I can't blame her choice: the only pair I own is falling apart, and that makes me look more like a beggar than a young man on career.

Oh, did I tell you about my career? :) This year I'm starting my graduate degree in "Planning and Management of Tourist Systems". Within two years I'll start a tourist center here on Boria, if everything goes as planned (unless I go for a Master degree). Hehe. Can't wait! :D I'm tired of the little jobs, I want something more, something I can treat my family with and live decently. Heh, I guess in a way I deserve it. Good ol' Longreen hasn't had an easy life from the beginning, you know… But I won't be recalling the past here. ^^ It's okay.

So, Naral will buy the shoes at Famous Footwear, because she wants to get me a good brand, but at a low price. After all, who could say 'no' to a BOGO + 15% off Famous Footwear Coupon? :) We're not swimming in gold and certainly a little saving would help.


The store has a reputation for helping customers buy the right shoes in less than 20 minutes. Ahah! That's amazing! :D I would be curious to see that happening, but Naral wants the present to be a surprise, so we're not going together.

Another cool thing is that, if Naral signs up for the store's FREE Rewards Program, she'll get 20% off the shoes instead of 15%. Wow! ^^ This is something interesting, that I hope my wife will take in consideration, even because for every $1 spent, 1 point is assigned to the certificate, up to $100, to spend in the store. Plus other little perks, of course. :) Hehe. Cool guys!

So, I guess the best thing to do is to print the coupon and redeem it –in-store!– before August 18th, because coupons never last forever, you know. ^^ I may print one too, just to keep, just in case.
