The Karl Show
IN THE NAVY!
I got an email today from the Navy's Officer Recruitment program or something like that. Apparently, they want me to be an officer. Apparently, they forgot to ask my professors if I'm an idiot or not. I dont think I have the courage or the willpower to be an officer, but I'm glad that there are men out there who have both.
KARL-FU: THE LEDGEND CONTINUES
Well, youre all probably wondering where I've been for the past week or so. I've been wondering myself. Truth be known, I spent my spring break in a little place called Gulala, CA. It was pretty nice, but sadly, I spent most of the week not feeling very well. I talked to my doctor afterwards, and he said that I was WAY to stressed out - and I have a bad diet to boot.
So here I am, popping pills like Rush Limbaugh and trying to squeeze by in my classes at the same time. I have a fun life, to be sure.
I'll be posting mopre soon, as soon as I think of something to write.
In the meantime, Stay Frosty!
I'M OUTTA HERE
I'll be spending the next week or so in Parts Unknown, taking in some sunshine and plenty of food. I'll probably be back around Friday or so. In the meantime, don't do anything that I wouldnt do.
Today is a strange day, to say the very least. I mean, it's not every day that the Creator of The Universe comes down to Earth and gets brutally murdered by His own people. It's a black day, for sure. And to be quite honest, I really don't know how to feel. I know that my sin murdered Jesus, I know that I am responsible - yet somehow my heart is calloused to this revelation. I don't "feel" guilty enough, and I don't think I ever will.
In any event, Thank You, Lord. Thank you for dying so that I would Live.
Ladies and gentlemen, I am proud to announce that my family is now the owner of an Official Starbucks™ Expresso Machine.
Yes folks, its true. I can now make my own Expressos, Mochas, Coffees, Teas or whatever at the press of a single button. I'm actually sitting here with a delicious Sumatran mocha that I just made. MMMMMMMmmmmm......chocolately.
So if any of my friends are reading this (and I think at least one or two of you are my friends), feel free to drop by and have a little drink. The coffee is on me.
Karlbucks: Where friendship is bought by the pound.UPDATE:
Pastor Brad has rightly pointed out that I have mispelt "Espresso". However, being the Postmodern Man-About-Town that I am, I think I'll leave it as "Expresso". Thats how my family pronounces it anyway.
HIDE YOUR CATS
So I read a news report today saying that "ALF"
has been designated a "domestic terrorist organization". "Strange," I thought to myself, "I always liked Alf."
Sadly, it was to be expected. I knew that eventually the stress of fame and fortune would get to him, eventually he would crack.
I guess you could say it all started when he began having delusions of grandure, like when he started speaking Russian and asking everybody to refer to him as "President Alf"..
He went pretty much down hill after that, always calling up President Bush and the local Freemasons and saying that he was "gonna blow a hole in this planet bigger than John Kerry's face." or something like that.
It didnt help when the FBI found him constructing a nuclear bomb in the Tanner family's basement.
In the end, I think it's good that somebody (even the FBI) finally heard Alf's cry for help. He's been deeply troubled ever since ABC canned his show, and I'm glad that he's getting some kind of help for it now.
What's that, you say? The FBI is after a different
Alf? What are you talking about?
Have you ever wondered what "Lord of the Rings" would look like if it were written by somebody other than Tolkein? Wondering what it would look like if it was written by Crichton, Augustine or Tom Clancy? Wonder no longer, and prepare to laugh.

Dan, Dan's Dad and Myself went to a very, very cool concert tonight. Bluegrass, baby. Down home style. With mollasses, please. The folks were really talented, laid back and funny. It was a night to remember - and best of all, I got a free refill with my coffee.
We wont see days like that any time soon.
Go check this out.
It's a Flash Animation, and it takes a while to load, but it's well worth it. Special thanks to Brad for pointing it out.
