my first blog entry

A couple of months ago, I went up into my parents' attic to look for my Chronicles of Narnia box set. It turns out it wasn't there -- I had forgotten that I loaned it to my nephew. But I found lots of good stuff in the attic.

One of my excellent discoveries was a booklet that I probably made in pre-school or kindergarten called "All About Me". Page 1 was a mimeographed fill-in form that says (in my teacher's handwriting):

All About Me

I am me

I live at Country Club Acres

My phone number is 646-9118

I feel happy when I don't have to work.

I am afraid of lions

I get mad when my sister won't let me into her room.

Falling down and hurting my knee makes me sad.

I like chocolate cake

Sometimes I try to work

My favorite things to do are playing and inviting someone over to my house

There it is, Jack's first blog entry. Now: make your own version!

Here are scans of the booklet:
