A House Divided (This title post won't make sense unless you are from North Carolina)

NCAA and March Madness used to be fuzzy concepts - now in the heart of the Tobacco Road rivalry, they are a matter of life and death. It is best to pretend you care in polite company. On UNC's campus I nod politely when people trash-talk Duke and at Duke, I indulge the K-Ville crowd. Truth be told, it is a little more interesting when there are brackets and Sweet 16's, Elite 8's, Final 4's and reasons to drink beer in crowds. But I was at a kids consignment clothing sale the other night and one Mother in her Tarheels hat shouted at another Mom, total stranger, in a dark blue sweater, "Why aren't you wearing Carolina Blue?" And she meant it. Yipes. I've had enough of the Red and Blue bickering, more than enough, I don't need the Two Shades of Blue bickering too. Especially over something like college basketball. But then I substitute the words "college basketball" for "Canadian hockey" and I kinda get it.

In today's videos, you will not see much blue. Pink and red are the theme of the day, a little late for Valentines but always in style at our house. Here's Simone running around in said outfit (apologies for the angle but it wouldn't let me rotate it:)

There's another of her play sweeping over on Vimeo-land too.

I have night classes on Thursdays which makes my Thursday break down thusly:
9-12:15 - Cataloging Class
12:15-5:15 - Work
5:30-8:00 - Night class
8:00-9:30 - Travel home, as the bus only goes once an hour.
This means I miss Simone's whole day and I really don't like that. She's particularly giggly and happy right now so Sergio filmed some of her dinnertime so I could watch her when I got home.

This modern world. You gotta catch up with your child in the digital way. I'm looking forward to classes ending so we can spend more analog face-to-face time together.
