Hello, my dear friends! I have just heard that today is a special day for the loved ones on the Earth – Saint Valentine’s Day. There is similar holiday on my planet, called 01000101 01100100 01101001 01110101 01100111 01100101 01110110 01101111 01101100. Oh, I cannot get used to the fact that you don’t speak Binarish Numerish. In your language it means Ediugevol. Yes, it is a little bit hard for you to pronounce, Earthmen, but…
Anyway, we have a surprise for couples. You can get loudspeaker and headset splitter absolutely for free till the end of this month! Walk together, explore together. Happy St. Valentine’s Day!
“Earth is an absolutely amazing place!” The beauty of our planet has stroked Creaky. After couple days he’s started to feel at home in his new apartment. He found it very comfortable and modern, but there is a problem. He hasn’t found perfect furnishing yet.
“Yes, I’m perfectionist!” said Creaky, “and for me it’s a big problem! I accustomed to do anything perfect – spirit and body, home and work”
“Oh, by the way, my job! We had a long dispute with the Creator about one thing. I’m proud to say that I won the debate. My dear friends, I am happy to announce…”
[The sound of drums]
[boooom] Prices now decreased from 19 EUR to 17.95 EUR per day! But surprises aren’t over. Next day will cost you only for a half of price, which means – only 8.95 EUR!
“Isn’t it great?! I am so glad, that our service becomes more and more affordable! I’m so happy!”
“Keep in touch with our news feed, we have a loooot of surprises for you, my friends!”
“What a wonderful new day,” said the Creator, and he was absolutely right. Although it was cold, the sun was shining. A perfect winter day! “Now it’s time to take a little rest,” he said and started to stretch oneself.
“No, no, no,” he unexpectedly uttered, “I’m not lazy, don’t even think that way! I had a lot of work to do! And now it’s time to introduce you someone you will love.”
“Oh, Mother of Code, I’m so excited about it”, the Creator closed his eyes, took a breath and made a pause. The pause seemed like an eternity to him.
“He was designed,” he continued, “especially to help us introduce our offers, promotions and all brand-new inventions that our ingenious team (and he’s a part of it now) will come up with. He’s great specialist and reliable friend. We trust him 110 percent and wanna see him as our company’s symbol.”
“Hey, buddy, show yourself to such a lovely audience!” said the Creator.
[The creature is shyly looking out of the curtain]
“Don’t be shy! Come on!”
[The creature appears]
“Gooood boy! But where are your good manners?!” asked the Creator, “Say hi and present yourself!”
“[bzzzzt] I am enthusiastic and curious creature,” said Creaky lowly, “I’m delighted to be a part of the team feeling alike me.”
“I took him from the planet far far away. A good planet. A planet with the best tour guides!” – said the Creator proudly, “Right, my friend?”
“Right, Creator! [bzzzzt] Being new on this planet, I am curious about everything that happens around me and always find myself in the middle of embarrassing situations. One day I’ll tell you some of these stories if I find and untwine a cord to download them from my memory block.”
“Oh, we would love to hear all these amazing stories, but not now. I have to go,” interrupted the Creator. “There is no time to explain, but remember: I will be far and close at the same time.” He pulled out the cord and disappeared, leaving behind a note lying on the ground.
Creaky picked it up and started to read. It said:
Now, it won’t be surprise for all of you to see on our front page a cute creature with a wide charming smile (http://electronictourguide.com).
“At your service my dear new friends!” said Creaky and cracked a smile.

Happy New Year! May your dreams come true! We hope to see you in Prague very soon!
Our team want to congratulate you with the first day of winter!
Also today is the first day of Christmas markets at the Old Town Square in Prague. We already have our Prague Christmas tree lighted. We are looking forward to see you in here!
We have our own blog now with cross-posting to facebook and twitter. I can’t say that I’m a big admirer of the centralized social networks, but one marketing expert convinced me that it’s a good thing and very useful…I personally prefer Diaspora, a new type, distributed social networking service. Unfortunately, it’s still not very popular and we decided to limit ourselves to facebook and twitter. Stay tuned!
