About this blog

This is my son's blog. No, not really his, he's just 7 years old. I wanted to chronicle some of the little things that I'd have fun remembering later (like a memory-album).

Sometimes, I use a 'faux voice' that supposedly is his, because I think it can better express some of his attitudes and reasoning. Someday, he'll have a real blog of his own.

As for the title, 7 year olds are not Objectivist (the anarchist little tykes!), the original by-line 'my dad reads Ayn Rand' describes the extent of my son's philosophical leanings.

Google Maps

Z likes playing with Google Earth. Sometimes he "drives" to his friends' houses, sometimes to school. He's learning the roads around here. He thinks it's fun.

A TV is not really real

Today Z said to me: "When I was young, I thought the TV was like a window. I thought if the screen broke, I could go and meet those people."

Forums

Z: Daddy, what is that called.
Dad: It's a forum.
Z: Why do you use it so much?
Dad: I probably use it too much.
Z: For what?
Dad: It's a bit like eMail. It let's you talk to people. Everyone talks and you can see what everyone is saying. Like a room full of people.

Z likes the forum because it has an icon of a red-faced smiley banging his head against a wall. Some people have pictures with their names. The dancing mouse was funny. The lady who uses it, says it's not a mouse, it's was a hamster.

Z uses most of the programs that daddy does, including Word and Excel. He even pretend to be an accountant, withhis own version of MS-Money. He has millions in his account. He thinks it's fun!

Our car is 5 feet high

[Narrated by dad, using Z's "voice"]
I cannot see over the roof of our car. Daddy can. I'm four feet. He's six. So, our car must be about 5 feet high.
