Hi. It’s Gabie again. Sorry I haven’t written on my blog for a while. Thanks for tolerating my Mom in the meantime. She’s a good substitute. (She’s also a good hair cutter, Ramen Noodle warmer upper, and double-knot shoe tie-er but I don’t tell her that or it might go to her head). I’ve been busy with Important Things lately. Here’s what I’ve been doing:

Going to school. I’m in Kindergarten now so this means I have to get up so early in the morning that after Mom carries me out of bed, I have to sit in my chair for at least 10 minutes staring into the cereal bowl to warm up my brain. Sometimes Mom asks me if I’m trying to glue the bowl to the table with my laser vision but I don’t laugh. Nobody’s mom is funny at 7:30 am.

I like school. Mom says that’s a good thing since I’ve decided that I’m going to be a doctor and all. She says I only have 24 more years to go. I think I’ll be able to skip a few of those since I already know tons. I’ve read at least five books about the human body and I like to use words like cartilage and kidneys whenever I can, especially when we have stewed chicken for dinner. (I asked mom to save the bones for me so I could study them.)

I drew these pictures yesterday of my brain and my mom’s brain. Mom wanted to know why mine is all loopy and hers is all “compartmentalized” whatever that means. I said boys brains and girls brains are totally different. Duh.

Nobody else knew that my pictures were brains except mom. She said she knew because she had seen the same shape in a painting by Michelangelo (then she actually showed it to me because she’s a serious art nerd!).

Sometimes Dad lets me watch Survivorman on TV. Mom says I shouldn’t watch so much Discovery Channel, but I tell her it’s educational. This week I learned how to boil jungle roots in a tin can to get rid of foot fungus. This will come in handy if I’m ever stranded in the Amazon rain forest. You never know. That’s why it’s so important that I don’t miss any episodes.

Gabie, you've been very much missed! Yes, your Mom can be a bit silly at times, but that's a big part of what makes her so loveable, isn't it?

Glad you're having fun at school!

I am thrilled I got to meet this famous Gabie!

I love those brains. Those should be filed in the "Keepers" bin.

Loved this!

Gabie, It's nice to hear your voice again.

The brains were perfect!

Hi Gabie, nice to meet you. I love your post and I love your pictures of the brains. My little boys' favorite show is Survivorman too and they love Dirty Jobs and Mythbusters and anything else they can get away with watching on Discovery Channel!

Please tell your mom she ruined my day by stopping my my blog, because now all I want to do is go through and read all her posts from the beginning, but I have other more pressing things I need to do such as cleaning toilets...ok maybe I'll sit here for just a bit longer.

Hi, it's me again. No I didn't sit here for 10 hours, I took a break, but unfortunately (or fortunately depending on the point of view), I didn't get any toilets cleaned!

I've been reading your past posts and I love what I've read so far. Your writing is very inspiring. I hope you have decided to continue your blog. I actually don't mind that people don't post every day. I don't always have time to check every day, and also it gives me more time to contemplate what they wrote about.

I have some comments about some of your past posts, should I put them on those post comments, or here?

Have a great day!
