My 9-year-old niece, Kristi, just contacted me via g-chat. Yes, she's only nine. The rest of the details will be in the chat itself:
Kristina: Hi Kevin! I caught you on the computer!!!!!You can send back to me whenever you get this message.
me: Hi Kristi
how are you?
Kristina: Good. This is the first chat I've ever done in my life!
me: oh, congrats.
I'm glad I could be a part of it if you've never done this before, how did you know you could?
Kristina: Have you been visiting my blog (used to be my dad's)Are you still on the computer?!?!?!
me: no, I haven't checked out the bloglately
what is the url?
Kristina: When did you get on the computer? Is this your first chat too?
me: no, I've done this many times
how did you know you could do this?
Kristina: Yes but when did you get on the computer?
me: i've been on about 20 minutes I think
Kristina: I just got on the computer like when we started this chat because I was hoping my friend would have emaied me back. We just traded emails today.
me: yeah, I'm on gmail pretty often
you can look for me
I'm not on mondays and tuesday anymore cause I started going to school after work but other days I'm on
Kristina: Then how come you haven't emailed me in forever? Is your chat box small with a blue bar at the top that says Kristina Burrill with a green dot next to it? Please answer both questions in one reply.
me: I don't know why I haven't e-mailed you in a while. I didn't know we had anything we needed to e-mail about.

Kristina: We don't need to email! We just want to email! I was absent from school yesterday because I had pink eye. Kind of a bad case too!
me: did you go today?
me: I think you can go once you get on the drugs
you took the medicine?
Kristina: Yes. It's this horrible ointment that you actally have to put on your eyeball Sent at 5:53 PM on Thursday
I would be good at that though, because I wear contacts every day
Kristina: I absolutely hate it!! And just cause it says Kristina is typing, doesn't mean you have to wait till i'm done typing for you to type because i'm a slow typer
you'll get faster
have you taken any typing classes? Sent at 5:55 PM on Thursday
Kristina: No. We used to have to practise typing during computer class, but now we have choices.
I spelled practice wrong.
me: that's okay
do you type properly? Sent at 5:57 PM on Thursday
Kristina: No. But I can type really fast if I know what I want to type and it's not layed out in front of me. I still look at my fingers but that doesn't mean I'm slow
Laid, not layed
Hey anybody out there! Hello you have to type dude!!!!
me: (doing two things at once)and don't call me dude
Kristina: Okay. You can reply faster than you are, though.
me: I'm expert at touching my own eyes
and also at taking pills
Kristina: Wierd!!!!!! Isn't it wierd that when you're having a conversation that one thing can lead to another?
me: yeah, that totally happens
so do you have any other friends on-line right now on the list or just me? Sent at 6:03 PM on Thursday
Kristina: No. My only friend is that one I told you about. I have other friends but she's the only one I have on email. Everyone else is family. Plus even if my friend was online, I wouldn't be able to chat with her because she's not on gmail. She's comcast or something like that me: yeah, this is just gmail people
me: I have like 40 friends with gmail Sent at 6:07 PM on Thursday
Kristina: That's cause you're a grown-up and I'm a kid. I'm 9! I have way less friends total than you have on gmail! Maybe not way less, but probably 10-40 friends. It would take me too long to count them all me: yeah
Kristina: which probably means 10=40
me: I've lived a little longher than you
and probably lots of your friends don't even have e-mail
what is the url of your blog
I will check it out
Kristina: 10 does not=40! longher? What's a url?
me: a url is another way to say web address
what is the website?
Kristina: than why isn't it wa?
me: http://www.ibuildcabinet.blogspot.com/ or what is it?
URL stands for something; I don't remeber what
your mom probably knows Sent at 6:12 PM on Thursday
Kristina: No. My mom's not here. And it's http://www.itaintallaboutthecabinets.blogspot.com/
But you were close
me: okay, I'm going to go make some dinner now
I'll check out your blog later
