Food puns

Welcome home, literature lovers. The campus is green, the skies are blue, and I can’t wait to start this new year with you! (In hindsight, that last sentence uncomfortably reads a lot like a “roses are red, violets are blue” poem…) Be sure to check out the new English Department website (as always, – it’s faster, it’s sleeker, it’s crisper… and we’re excited. Are you excited?

The rest of this blog post really has nothing to do with the new academic year – it has mostly has to do with the fact that I missed lunch and I am starving.
