Return of the Blog!

Well, English department, here we are! The school year is upon us.

Here at GLO HQ we've had a changing of the guards. Your new Graduate Literary Organization coordinators are Nicole Herbert and Dinah Sheehan (hey, that's me!). Amber and Jennifer left quite a legacy in GLO, and if we can do half as great a job as they did, I'll feel like this year was a raging success. Hats off to them!

I'll be your blogger this year, so please make sure your seat belts are securely fastened, and you are ready for the mind of Master Blogger, Dinah Sheehan.

A little about me:

I was born and raised in Las Vegas (no, I do not know how to play poker) and got my B.A. in education from a Cracker Jack box I found on the side of Las Vegas Blvd. I taught for a year, then alighted to Oregon with every intention of settling down and becoming a barista at a coffee shop. Life had other plans, and I ended up here at PSU getting an MFA, which I will probably use to write ad copy on the back of cereal boxes.

A little about Nicole:

I just met Nicole, so I might have to make some stuff up. Let's see, I know she went to school in North Carolina at some point. There was a stint in Chicago somewhere. She has a three-legged cat named "Beast" that came with the house she lives in. She rides a green bike. She's in her second year as an MA student in literature here at PSU, and she hopes to someday teach women's literature.

I'll keep this short, but before I go, I leave you with a link to the most amazing thing on the internet.

Hear ye, hear ye: Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog

This blog started in 2007, I think, and caused quite the stir among Medievalists, as one might imagine. I'm not sure if the identity of the Chaucer blogger has ever been discovered, but whoever he is, he is brilliant. It's a blog written in the style of Chaucer. What's not to love?

Need a callback from either Nicole or Dinah. Joyce Boles, 503-249-7673. And I need it Thursday, Oct. 15, if not before. I am making calls for an event tied up to Powells, and I need to talk with you before I go ahead. Also need that phone number of Ms. Coleman.
Thank you. Never received your email with all emails and phone numbers on it.
