Kari does terrible; humiliates family

Posted by joelbyer on March 25, 2008

Yes folks, Jen and I were at her sister Kari’s recital tonight. She played the piano, sang, and even did an encore on her violin. I wish I could say she did a great job, but that would be an exaggeration to say the least.

Kari started out pretty well with her first number, but then unfortunately due to her extreme nerves, she broke down halfway through her second song, and started sobbing. Needless to say, we in the audience didn’t know what to do and just sat there in frozen silence. Kari continued crying for a few minutes, and then got mad that no one came up to comfort her. With a primordial scream she got up took a music stand and began smashing it against the piano. All attempts to restrain her proved useless. Finally (after lighting the drapes on fire, throwing things at the audience, and demolishing her violin) she calmed down enough to be escorted to the Mifflinburg Psychiatric Ward.

Well, actually folks, the above tall tale is what she probably feared would happen, but in all seriousness, she did a GREAT JOB! I’ll see if I can post pictures and perhaps even video later.

PA

No, that does not stand for Public Address or Postage Anonymous, but rather the current state we’re in! Pennsylvania. We travelled through the night last evening and made it safely here to hear Kari’s recital tomorrow evening. I think she’s pretty nervous about the whole thing. I have also been looking for ways to make her more nervous about it as well. 🙂

Anyway, you can always contact me via e-mail. myfirstandlastnamehere@gmail.com

How do you know He Lives?

Keith Drury has a good article on this.
I need to think about this more, before I give my thoughts.

Happy Easter!

He is risen!
I felt like the Lord helped me preach this morning. Thanks be to Him!
Here’s an article on Easter dates…and why they vary so much.

Is he?

TheStar.com – Is Bush the worst U.S. president ever?

If by greatness you define getting one’s agenda passed and influencing the country to your viewpoint (which is an important part of leadership, let’s face it.), then quick tell me…what important thing has he successfully done?

I am a firm political conservative, while this article is unabashedly liberal. (OK, “bashedly” liberal!)
But he has a point.

By purely leadership standards…the only one worse in the past half century at least – in my humble opinion – was Jimmy Carter.
