Galadriel Tanqueray Onassis

This little cutie just started her Freshman year in High School.

Smart as a rocket scientist. Tutors other kids in math. Makes good decisions. Makes good friends. Makes good grades. Never been in trouble. Adapts well to change and adversity. Loves to read. AWESOMELY wicked sense of humor. Drop dead gorgeous. Techno savvy. Has a personal sense of style that sets her apart from the crowd without being a freak.

She's taken dance and gymnastics, she's been a cheerleader and a football manager, she spent 3 weeks touring Australia as a Student Ambassador for People to People, Intl. and visited Washington , DC with her 8th grade class.

By bulking up on the carbs she managed to get herself from a size 0 to a size 1.

She recently discovered how fast she can run and may go out for track.

Has a vastly ecclectic taste in music that manages to sandwich Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin around Tokio Hotel.

All in all, I'm pretty damned proud. I enjoy her company.

She's my best friend.

On the best friend front:

1) She could do better
2) You couldn't

This is where we live parallel lives. I know how lucky you are and so do you so I shan't belabor the point.

High school though? Hard to get the dad arms around that idea n'est-ce pas?

stink - you are wise beyond your years, grasshopper and have much to look forward to.

She is already bugging me about the driver's permit that she will be eligible for when she turns 15 in February of '09.

Six months from now.

Just. Fucking. Shoot. Me.

Her middle name is... Tanqueray?

Then again, maybe she is older than the booze. Perhaps not. Either way, a damned fine middle name.

Aww...congrats. I think it's awesome that you can blog about your kid (being mindful of her privacy) and be proud of her. Cool, Daddy-O!

I am sure she is a head turner, just like her dad. :-)

Sounds like you raised her to be a fine person.
