Hermagoras Simpson

Below is a totally accurate, police-sketch level Simpsons version of me. (Note the presence of Blinky, the three-eyed mutant fish from Season One, on my T-shirt.) You can create your own avatar over at The Simpsons Movie site. (HT, Omnibrain).

Courtney Queeney, where are you?

Courtney Queeney was an undergraduate student of mine in a modern American poetry class at Duke. Later I was her advisor for her creative writing honors thesis. Her first book of poems, Filibuster to Delay a Kiss, is just out, is from a major publisher (Random House!), and looks great. Go read a couple of poems here.

Courtney, if you're out there, drop me a line, will you?
