Abigail's "X-Rated" Teen Diary

If you've not seen it before, you should check out Abigail's "X-Rated" Teen Diary.

Despite the title, it is TOTALLY safe for work. The "X-Rated," she explains, is adult-speak for "You're not supposed to look at this, it's private."

The premise is that between the seventh and eighth grades, Abigail developed Bloomberger's Syndrome, which is this disease that, like, totally changes your DNNA 'n' stuff -- the upshot of which is that this thirteen-year-old girl happens to look exactly like a middle-aged man, though she still talks and acts like a thirteen-year-old girl..

She posts new videos every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and the videos tend to run about thirty seconds to two minutes. The entire backlog of Abigail videos is available for viewing on her site and is available as a video podcast through iTunes as well.

If you know a man in the Bay Area who is over forty, preferably with facial hair and/or bald(ing), who is willing to do some kind of semi-scripted semi-improvisation on camera some weekend, let me know. I want to send a video response to Abigail, but I need someone to play my mother (can you say "adult-onset Bloomberger's?").

I recently read _Confessions of Max Tivoli_ . Um, I strive for relevance when possible.

I just looked that up. Sounds like a laugh riot.

Actually, it sounds similar an idea that Karl Pilkington put forth on Ricky Gervais's podcast a couple of years ago.
