Always Remember To be Yourself, Unless You Suck -Joss Whedon


maxbangthegongI have completed the transfusions and I have to say I feel at least thirty years younger. According to Aaron’s calculations my lifespan has increased anywhere from ten to fifteen years. I think that’s enough time to get Karpland on the path to statehood. We have and continue to develop a thriving economy. Our population continues to grow. We are in negotiations with countries such as Cambodia and Australia to establish umon settlements. This is all very productive in such a short amount of time.

Unlike me there are a number of police who have received transfusions that have not gone well. I believe this is due to the fact that our police are made up of people that are not the brightest bulbs on the marque and are aggressive to begin with. It’s one thing to be born umon. It’s part of an accepted process. But by unnaturally combining umon blood with human doesn’t seem to mix well, especially administering to people who are violent and or mentally challenged. These traits will escalate. It’s fine if you want to construct an army of crazies and I believe Ash is doing just that. I’m hoping that he doesn’t decide to pull a Castro and become a dictator. Fortunately there is Max who remains loyal to the cause and if I’m not mistaken, is in love with Katherine. Judging from the way she responds to him/her the feeling is mutual. Speaking of love, I’ve been feeling a little randy myself lately. It’s amazing how the transfusions can replace Viagra.

Now that I have adapted to this new frame of mind, my next challenge is where can I find human male companionship? I’m not interested in umons and since tourism is coming into full swing, there may be room for a few gay clubs.


Stay tuned…
