Thank you very much for all the comments yesterday. I fasted, I slept, I looked to the stars for guidance and I have decided to support….
Davidson College: “Where Hoops and Books Coexist”. Even though they are located in you-know-where.
And if, by some strange chance, they get beat, I’ll support whoever beats them, and whoever beats them, etc.
(Really I just want to make muffins for my Hoyas. Maybe some chicken soup, too.)
One question: the Davidson mascot is a guy named Mr. Cat. (I did not make that up.) So am I supposed to yell “Go, you Mr. Cats!”? Are they Hep Cats? Ferocious Felines? They sure as heck beat the tar out of the Georgetown bulldog. Here is my first official taunt as a Davidson Cat: Hey, Barry! Your Jayhawks? Going down, man! Kitties rule over birdies every time!
(OK, that was a little lame, but I’m new at this.)
Wait – we have to get past Wisconsin before we sink our fangs into Kansas. Do kitties rule over badgers?
Tab closing time: check out author Anne Bustard’s Anneographies blog which highlights picture book biographies by the birthday of the central character. My hero, Sarah Josepha Hale is there on October 24th – so is the book I wrote about her! (I’m pretty sure I got the link from Cynthia Leitich Smith, another great Austinite.)

I am officially back in the Cave of Revision (have been all week), so pardon me if the posts for the next couple of weeks get a little weird.
