It's "Take Your Daughter to Work Day", but my daughter is really too young to absorb the message and would get waaaaaay too bored watching me stare at a computer screen for hours at a time (today wasn't a teaching day for me, compounding the boredom). I did, however, take my friend's twelve-year-old with me. This morning I gave my students a "library day" with the additional perk of parking myself in the library for 4 hours so they could approach me easily with any questions they had about their project or their upcoming final. In 4 hours, I got 3 questions. Cool dudes, why would you want to pick the brain of the person whose final you're going to take in a week? Dunno. Fortunately, my tween tagalong also found this completely mystifying, so I wasn't alone.

(I just noticed that this is basically the same thing I wore on Tuesday but in a different color scheme.)
Anyhoo, she sat through a truly pointless meeting with me, then we grabbed lunch, then we came back to my house where I changed, we both slapped on some cuticle remover, then went out for a mani. I may have given her the wrong idea of what it's like to be a college professor/debate coach...

SO many dots this week, huh? Stripes, dots, anchors--I've got so many patterns.
PS--hope nobody minds the new blog template. One of my friends noted that I was, in the words of Elle Woods's besties, "ignoring my signature color", so I went for something a little more simple and significantly more pink.
