Yesterday Agent Rieko accompanied me on a reconnaissance mission deep into Universal Studios Japan. We had picked up some intel that pointed to the evil Snoopy and his dangerous Peanuts Gang.
First, we got ourselves set with some special passes. These let us snoop around in some of the backwaters of USJ.
Then, it was off to corner our main suspect — Snoopy. We were heading into dangerous territory. Snoopy’s Land of Evil Machinations is guarded by such dangerous henchmen and henchladies as Lucy VanPelt, whose left hook and caustic words were a constant threat to our mission. Then, there was that blanket marksman, Linus — just one crack from his deadly blanket whip could bring a quick end to our assignment. We stayed well away from Pigpen as Agent Rieko was wearing a black skirt that would show up dust too well.
Agent Rieko soon brought the odds in our favour by seducing the hapless beagle. He was putty in her hands. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get much out of him. He really is quite mad. Kept muttering, “It was a dark and stormy night …”
Next, it was deep into Snoopy’s Playland on the frightening Snoopy’s Rollercoaster. We had to be masters of ingenuity, as we were the only people over 15 without some children tagging along. By pretending that other people’s children were ours, we were able to pull off the charade (just about got slugged by one little girl’s over-protective grandmother).
The ride was the most dangerous part of our assignment yesterday. You can see how bravely we faced imminent death and dismemberment. we only screamed a little louder than the children around us.
After such exertion, it was time for a relaxing lunch at Lombard’s Landing.
For those involved im my WSO, you’ll be happy to see the wine we drank. Although the flashh has somewhat obscured the label, that is a bottle of Cantina de Negras Valpolicella. Yummy. This Agent work is thirsty work, but the rewards are quite fine.
After our nerves had been settled by fine dining and red wine, it was time to go to Oz. We entered Munchkin Town and scoped out the local shops and houses, before approaching the wizard.
We decided to blend in with the munchkins by cleverly disguising ourselves.
However, we soon had a break in our infiltration task. Rieko used her charms on the heart of the Tinman. It was soon melting in her hand and the lovelorn guy spilled the beans — a sordid tale of corruption that will bring the whole fairyland to its knees. Seems one of our main suspects now is the Wizard himselves, who has been pulling the strings behind the scene.
One tip the Tinman gave us also led to this gang in another part of USJ. The old granny was fierce and gave no quarter, while the big cigar-chomping buzzard was a formidable foe. But, once we determined that they were all quite two-dimensional, we just turned on the fan and blew them away.
Our investigation did not end there! Following up on another one of the Tinman’s leads, we ended up at a place we never expected such evil to lurk. We were quite shaken by this discovery and needed to go back for more Valpolicella. For we discovered that the whole evil empire was being run from …
PS: If you haven’t seen it yet, go see the Mission video on You Tube:
It leads to:
Old Cranky got fixed up. With more memory and a bigger hard drive, he’s actually smiling. And now we’ve all got something to smile about — the Mission: Make Money Online Home Study Course is here. And what a course it is.
But first, check out this video:

This morning, Old Cranky — my main PC that I use for product creation and most of my functions — crashed and burned. He is steadfastly refusing to re-boot — just sits there sulking. He’s miffed because he got bumped by the wastebasket. Obviously, he’s not a Monday morning PC.
Now, the unfortunate part is, since I am notoriously negligent about backing up my HD, all the videos, etc for Mission: Make Money Online are locked in Old Cranky’s innards. He’s off to the PC hospital tomorrow (wouldn’t you know it, today’s a national holiday here) to have the videos surgically removed.
Please bear with me as the launch is further delayed. I promise, it will be worth the wait. And you’re going to love the promo video — a few Warriors have seen it and loved it. Look forward to it.
I’ll get this great package out ASAP.
Thanks for your patience.
