Since I don't talk to a lot of people from high school anymore, when I go home I really go home. This state of affairs used to make me sad, but then I grew up. Did I really used to think that laying on the couch, watching basketball, eating rice and curry, drinking wine, hanging out with my parents, reading, and cuddling with cats was boring? Yeesh.
And oh man--quite the March Madness this year. People are always really confused when they find out how obsessed I am with college basketball ("Didn't you watch a football game for the first time in 2008...on TV? Aren't you the person who has never seen a pro basketball game? You like a sport?!") but March Madness always gets me going. Long live the underdog--unless the underdog is playing OSU, MSU, Duke, or Xavier.
