My Future Timothy Geithner (Minus The Tax Evasion)



I heart this kid.

She's a bright, creative and witty 8-year old.

And completely Type A/Melancholy/Beaver/Anal-Retentive depending on which personality test you subscribe to.

She's my little entrepreneur. She is constantly opening a new "business" in which she scams me out of money. There was the "Spa" where she massaged my feet and then sent me a bill for $1.00. There is the "Pet Spa" where she brushes the dog and bills me $0.50. There was the "Museum" in which I had to pay admission to view her rock collection. She then took all the money she scammed out of me and went to Wal-Mart and bought candy which she marked up 150% and then sold to her older sister.

Now witness this:


That's right. Those are her American Idol voting statistics. You can see she's tabulated how many votes she cast, how many times she got a busy signal and she's even calculated the time wasted dialing and waiting to get through.

If you know me, then you are laughing right now because you know I love all things spreadsheet-related.

She is SO my child!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go settle my account before she turns me over to a collection agency.

Oh, she is a smart one. Watch your wallet. I was like that as a child. I ended up loaning cash (with interest) to my sibling - even in college.

I'm smiling, for she is so like you!

Cheering for Kris Allen too!

I heart that girl too!

Tell her that I had MUCH better luck getting through on the 5705 number. Once I started calling that one, I never got a busy signal or an all circuits busy signal.

Glad the Am Idol stats show she is voting for Kris.
