I started off my day by going to Kennesaw State University for the KSU LGBT Summit. I gave a "lecture" on Online Social Networking-- Myspace, Twitter, Facebook, and the Blogosphere. I listened in on a presentation by Melanie Janus, and she was great. I'll give you one line from her presentation: "Capitalism may have taken my virginity, but Coke-Cola called me back the next day." I won't elaborate because I plan on interviewing her for I Was Born Doing Reference Work in Sin.
I think my part went well. I received a number of compliments, and I was happy that a handful of students stuck around after to chit-chat. Good times.
Then... There was a flat tire:
Unfortunately, I was stuck on the bridge that you see in the background of this picture. Luckily, I was able to make to asphalt. I was a bit nervous during the whole incident.
THEN.... It was off to the Poet's Dinner!
In the front: Cleo Creech and Beth Gylys.
The rest-- L to R: Dustin Brookshire, Julie Bloemeke, Megan Volpert, Collin Kelley Rupert Fike, and Christine Swint
It was yet another great time with talented poets.
