This post makes me laugh and laugh and laugh, and then laugh some more:

Hear that, Leprechauns? Looks like the luck of the Irish just ran out. Little Jack McGovern doesn’t want your pot of gold or your Lucky Charms or whatever freaky crap you have stashed at the end of your rainbow. He wants you dead, and he’s using nothing but a lasso, a spear, and an unnamed accomplice with messed up arms to make it happen. On March 17th, the dirt will get muddy with fresh, green blood. Top o’ the mournin’ to ye!

Look out, leprechauns!

I appreciate young Jack’s writing style. Terse, to the point, no-frills.

    Rofl! That is really funny!!!
    Thanks Kara for your LibriVox readings :) I’ve been listening to some recently and you read a lot of the books I’m listening too :) Thanks for the time and effort you put into reading them!

    Hi Kara,
    I just listened to your Librivox recording of “The Adventures of Sally” by P.G. Wodehouse. You did a wonderful job of reading it, and truly brought it to life. Thank you so much for lending us your talent.

    As an accountant who spends his day in front of a computer monitor, I don’t have the inclination to spend my evenings (and my remaining eyesight) reading lengthy books, and so have become a huge fan of audio books. Thank you for adding your voice, literally, to this valuable service.

    Hi Kara,
    I have started using a lot of audiobooks to “read” to my homeschooled kids. The two-year-old does not have patience for my read-aloud atttempts. We were falling behind. You have read a bunch of the books we are planning to listen to through Librivox, and we are looking forward to your recording of “Great Inventors and their Inventions” by Frank P. Bachman. I am also interested to hear your recordings in German.

    Thanks so much!

    Hi Kayray,
    I’m from Vietnam. I’m learning English. My English isn’t good.
    I have just finished listening “Heidi” by your voice.
    The story is interesting and heart warming. Your voice is clear and easy for me to understand. Thank you very much ^.^ God bless you and your job.

    Hi Kara,

    I tried to find a contact for you … just want to wish you a happy Easter 2012!

    Thanks for all your delightful readings! :D

    I just finished The Secret Garden and have The Little Princess to look forward to tonight.

    I’ve added my email above, for your eyes only.

    Thanks again Kara … happy, happy Easter!

    Kara and the White Rabbit

    by Chrisentiae
    Easter Sunday 2012

    “Floppy?”
    He considered this for a moment, as he looked at his reflection in the still of the pond.
    “Long ears, perhaps?”
    The white rabbit looked at Kara and twitched his nose. Kara feeling tired trying to think of a name, twitched her nose too and folded her arms.
    “Ummmm” began Kara and then went silent.
    The white rabbit looked at her, twitched his nose and then looked at her again. Stomp, stomp, stomp went his foot, very musically too I might add.
    Kara smiled.
    The white rabbit smiled.
    Kara smiled wider.
    The white rabbit smiled wider too and stop stomping his foot.
    “Easter Bunny!” laughed Kara as she took hold of the white rabbits paw and began to dance.
    “Is it Easter?” asked the white rabbit.
    “Yes it is”, answered Kara, “My word, yes!”.
    So the narrator of this short story penned this little tale, for to send an Easter Egg for Kara was just so impossible a thing to do, so this story will have to do.

    Happy Easter :D

    Thank you for all the work you do. I mow lawns 10 hours a day, and with my MP3 player I’m able to be a better man- serving my six children and conversing with the great ideas that have passed through time. I really enjoy your voice, and appreciate your kindness in reading aloud. Stand fast and read into the void. Some of us will hear you.

    Sincerely,
    John
