Karl the California King

I am proud to announce the arrival of our new housemate, Karl. He’s black and white, about a foot long, and as big around as your pinky.

Check him out:

Karl, the California King Snake

Cute, isn’t he? Not a great picture, but he hasn’t come out of hiding tonight. Last night he was all over the cage, and we even watched him drink some water.

Yes, I’ve completely lost it. What female is actually excited about having a snake in her home? Scary. What’s even more scary is that I even bought the snake – as a Valentine’s Day present for Jason, of course. Jason was really surprised since he thought he was getting homebrewing equipment… I was just excited that I managed to keep it a surprise – I am usually horrible at keeping these things a surprise from him (or he checks the history button on my computer and figures it out a la Christmas 2004 – sneaky).

Jason’s Valentine Surprise

Karl has brought on all sorts of fun, especially because he tells us things. For example, Karl likes it when I go shopping. Karl wants me to finish the curtains for Jason’s room (Karl lives in Jason’s room, and yes, his cage is double- and triple-secured so that he can’t escape). Karl wishes it would snow more. Jason claims that Karl told him that he likes J better than me, but I don’t think so. Karl enjoyed tonight’s episode of The Office. Karl thinks this week’s episode of The OC was lame. Karl wants me to stay home from work tomorrow so that he doesn’t get lonely.

You get the point.
