Karl’s Naked Pictures

Come on! What did you expect? That I’d post naked pictures of myself on my employer’s network server? Hell no! Anyway, I’m sure it bores all of you that I’ve been on a photography kick lately. Especially since my photo-taking skills are lacking. But I’m having fun doing it. And today I took the last […]

Brie, Cheddar, Swiss, Wilson Phillips.

Today was a fun day filled with accomplishment. After a ham and brie crepe and a peach/orange/honey smoothie, we went to see “Super Size Me” in Harvard Square. Quite interesting stuff. I recommend you see it…particularly if you like Michael Moore’s films. I don’t even eat at fast food restaurants, but it got me thinking […]

Up and Down and All Around

I did almost nothing all day. After my oatmeal and banana, I lounged on the couch for a while. Matt and I took Dusty for a walk in Charles River Park, then Matt ditched us for a movie and I brought Dusty home (she loved chasing the birds…okay, pigeons). When we got back, I played […]

Moth Balls

So, I was reading a magazine this morning and there was an ad for some high-end clothing designer who designed clothes with those strategically placed rips and holes (why somebody would spend $2,600 on a torn jean jacket is beyond me). Anyway, the holes got me to thinking about moth balls. Why? Why do people use moth balls? […]

Oh, Have I Told You Abou….zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

That heading pretty much sums up last night. As those of you who know me know, I’m not a night person. I’m a man of routine and any fluctuation in that routine screws up my system. Well, my system has been completely out of whack since we saw Oklahoma on Tuesday night. We didn’t get […]


Last night, Matt, Helen and I went to see “Oklahoma” at Boston’s Colonial Theatre*. This is a magnificent 100+ year old theatre with lots of plush velvet and gold leaf. One of the things I love about living in an old city like Boston is the architecture. It’s so strange that I prefer my home […]

A Fresh Start?

Here I am…33 years old. This photo was taken last night after Matt treated me to a scrumptious meal in the North End. I’m holding an individual size cake with a Harry Potter candle (Matt got himself a brownie instead). YUM! So, I’m still optimistic for the new year, but I’m concerned that the thunder/lightning […]

A Year Gone By….Good Riddance!

This past year has sucked. Today is my 33rd birthday and unlike most people who fear getting older, I couldn’t wait for this day to come. Looking back, I can honestly say that this past year was the absolute worst year of my life. It all started the day before my birthday last year when […]

Walk and Talk

Today I met up with my friend, Jason, for lunch and conversation (see his picture in the new “Friends/Family” section of my photo gallery…it’ll be a bit sparse in there until I start taking more pictures of friends). After meeting at my place, we walked to Salem Street and had pizza. I ordered one slice of […]

Don’t Touch That Trash…It’s Mine!

You just have to love life in the city. I’m serious! You get to witness so many things that you just miss out on when living in small-town America. For example, you have celebrity sightings. Between me and Matt we’ve seen Dan Akroyd, Aimee Mann, Rosie O’Donnell, Lou Reed, Greg Brady (ok, Barry Williams), Carly […]
