Because it's not like I'm under the illusion that any of you come here because of me.

More pictures after the jump.

The one with you in the mirror should be an album cover when she's a rock star.

Your daughter is a gem. Her exuberant personality comes through in the pictures.

My wife was an editor at a small town paper. She's had her picture taken a number of times for various reasons. We both noticed that the pictures that were taken by people who liked her were more flattering.

Todd Stull | December 28, 2006 10:18 AM

It's cool. We know your daughter ghost writes for you too.

How much more mature she looks now that she's eight.

Gus | December 28, 2006 11:00 AM

Seconding all the comments. She's a darling. Wife ain't bad either.

You're a lucky man.

Cut to: Int. Scalzi doorway.
A young man in an ill-fitting tuxedo stands at the door, self-consciously scratching a zit.

Athena: MOM!(three syllables), Daddy's making Jeff sit down for a Whatever interview and pictures before he'll let us go to the prom! Make him stop.

Forgot to say that's 9 or 10 years from now.

Nah, more than likely John'll be like I was when mine came of dating age ... I suddenly felt it necessary to be cleaning sidearms in the living room when said PFK (Pimply Faced Kids) showed up with designs on my daughter's virginity.

i never understand why dad's are so concerned about their daughter's virginity... safety, yes. future, yes. virginity? por quoi?

I think I like Athena-the-rock-goddess best.

You realize, you have created a moral commitment to keep doing this until Athena reaches her majority, at least.

John Scalzi | December 30, 2006 04:48 AM

Well, no. As soon as Athena gets self-conscious about it, it stops.
