The Karmic Challenge, normal service will be resumed shortly… In the meantime Week 21

John Lennon with Instant Karma, and given how long Rose and my Karmic Challenge is taking, I’m starting to wish for a can of the instant stuff… And what the hell was Yoko thinking of in this video?

THE CHALLENGE. A man (Captain Savage). A woman (Rose). A quest. To earn enough karmic points by Christmas to be reincarnated as Something Nice. Maybe a big fat lazy lizard lounging on a sunny rock? (adapted stolen from Rose’s blog)

“Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions.”
Dalai Lama XIV


My Hero, he makes baldness an art form

So what happened in Week 21?

For me, well my week has been largely about my new car, and I could bore you to death with the details… But perhaps only I truly appreciate the magnificence of my new Volkswagen Golf, see https://captsavage.wordpress.com/2012/08/10/ode-to-my-ford-territory/

I did make a trip to see my mum, and got to talk over some things. Plus found some old photos which I still need to get the full story from mum about. But I gather that mum used to enjoy chasing the boys (a bit), and she was not a bad photographic subject…


Mum on holidays, I’m guessing she’s on a beach…


Mum fishing, look at the size of the fish…


Here is mum with one of her many boyfriends (pre-dad) and her sister-in-law with her dashing brother (the RAAF pilot). You might notice the nose on mum, I may have inherited that…

So how many points do I get for driving my new car (got another mention in) to visit my mum Rose?

Maybe 10 points for seeing mum and 10 points for making her lunch? = 20 points

But it was nice to see her and it always brings a smile to her face… And I just have to ring her up when I get home so she knows I got home ok (makes me feel like kid again).

Then there were my continued efforts to become a part-time foster carer. I have completed all of my paperwork, sent it dutifully to the foster care coordinator, and I am now waiting to see if there extensive search discovers that I am actually an axe maniac… (or is that frustrated sex maniac?).

I think that I will be pretty safe, I am a dutiful part-time dad, an accountant, a public servant, over 50, and with a beard that makes me look like Santa… How could they say no to me?

Maybe another few points? = 10 points


Hopefully they never see me as I really am…

How about you Rose?

Well you can read about Rose’s efforts at http://butimbeautiful.wordpress.com/2012/08/15/the-karmic-challenge-week-21-guccis-finest-hour/#comments

She used her secret Karma gathering trick (one of her cute pets). Sneaky way to gather points and according to El Gaupo she should get a few points, see below

I bet you pick up a few points for bringing Gooch.
You should talk to the staff of the hostel to get their ok for bringing Gooch, especially after he brought so much joy to them.
It would be terrible for you to bring the dog then have an overzealous staffer throw you out.


Play fair Rose, using Gucci as a Karma Magnet… It’s cheating I say…

So OK Rose, how about 5 points for you and 10 points for Gucci? = 15 Points

I really can’t afford to give you too many points, it’s still months out from Christmas and at the rate you have collected (or I have stupidly allocated) points, you’ll be reborn as a rich lotto winner cougar lady soon…

And Ta-Da, the Week 21 Tally, feedback Rose?

    I love black n white photos! Thanks for sharing (I talk to my mom, who is 78, every single day).

  2. I cheerfully award you all the points you award yourself. It was a bloody long drive in one day to go see your mum and back (3 hours times 2!) so all hail to CS, the King of Good Karma!
