anyone watch Survivor last night? anyone else wondering how it is that these people don’t know that they are going on Survivor and not, well, church? i mean..SUITS? really? anyone else think that Charlie’s little man-crush on Marcus is giving gay men everywhere a bad rap? anyone else wondering why the Olympic track and field lady is wearing ten-pound shoes and can’t seem to run to save her life? anyone else think that HD is all well and good when looking at Africa…but not so much when looking at crater faces…ahem…Michelle? anyone else wish they’d stop discussing the friggin’ leader and move on to something more productive…like Macguyver’ing themselves some fishing gear (awe.some)? anyone else screaming at their tv during the schoolyard pick…the HELL?

seriously? Jeff Probst has got to be crying from all the laughing he’s doing.  oh, i get the strategy…let’s pick the most physically weak, most inappropriate people for our team!! awesome! anyone else think the funniest moment was when Kenny was trying to be all suave-like and then tripped over his own feet? anyone else snicker a little every time you hear Jeff Probst say the word “Gabon”?? no? just me?

very well, then, moving on…

this, my friends, is my daughter’s Hebrew homework. while not overly exciting, usually, and nothing more than something that takes way. too. long. to do each night, but LO! tonight…look at the tippy top of the page. you see the two signature-type things up there.

that is Emily trying to forge my signature.

she’s SEVEN.

yes, i’ll just let you digest that for a minute…

and while you’re digesting, why don’t you hop over here to Juice! I am giving away tickets to go see Abby Cadabby when she comes to walk the pink carpet and to see the screening of her brand new movie “Abby in Wonderland”

if you live in the Toronto area and you have kids who love Sesame Street…you will definitely want to see this!!!

  1. I’d enter the contest, but I’ll be knee-deep in diapers on Oct 4.

    And forging your signature at seven? Awe.some.

  2. Dude! I didn’t even begin my feebled attempts at my mom’s signature until middle school! Wow!

    Gabon is the greatest word ever. I intend to use it a lot, mostly as a verb.

  3. I agree with you on all your comments about Survivor. I actually find it hard to listen to Jeff even say it. I can’t get over how bad the olympics girl is playing (or maybe it is good, who knows). All I know is that her tribe is going to be pissed when they find out she didn’t step up for them.

  4. Forgery at 7? Your child is awesome! I actually hate Survivor, but if one of those twits gets eaten by a pack of baboons, I’m totally in.

  5. Guess who had her own little parental forgery business set up in junior high? JUST GUESS.

  6. hahaha! oh my friend aren’t you going to have fun when emily is actually a pre-teen and not just play acting one….

  7. I had a forgery business running by the end of 2nd grade. That’s a valuable skill that will take her far in life. Just not sure in which direction. haha

  8. I could read that entire page- but the dots (aka nekoodot) always got to me. I think i was out the week they were taught.

    i cannot believe she is already signing your name!! is she good at it?

  9. Forging your mother’s signature is a right of passage normally designated for that awkward time during puberty… not before. Kids these days… they’re older when they’re younger.

  10. Okay, I am an enormous loser, because I ACTUALLY READ the Hebrew homework to see if I still got it. Apparently, I do: “I did something not good?! I’m sorry, Dan! REPENTANCE.” And…scene.

    I’m beginning to think that I’d be intimidated of your seven-year-old daughter if I ever met her. I’m not kidding.

  12. Haha, I feel better seeing that other kids were running illicit forgery businesses in grade school as well!!

    I had my mom’s signature down by third grade, but I was such a nerd I rarely ever needed it. My delinquent friends, however, appreciated my services.

  13. Are you sure Emily isn’t fifteen?

  14. Ahh, the forged signature. I know it well. I did not, however, know it at age 7. I think I didn’t master it until the 4th grade (age 10?).

  15. We watched “Survivor” too … and were also wondering about all the same stuff. I wish Michelle had stayed … she would have been a hoot!

  16. I gave you an award over at my place. It may be lame, but you are not.


    Comment by jenboglass on September 26, 2008
  17. Yeah, I was wondering about that. Why do they show up in heels, when they know they’re going to be thrown off a ship or something?

  20. Wow… you have a criminal mind in training. I think my tool of choice for forgeries was carbon paper. Trace the original signature over carbon paper and then use a felt-tip on the carbon. Do they even make that stuff anymore
