Ruby is red,
Garnet is yellow... or red... or green... or white...
Wow! Poems are hard!
A new semester has begun here at the Gravelmonkeys, and like a tail-ender in the T20 Big Bash we're back in full swing! Each member is hard at work with teaching, writing, submitting, drinking, screaming, and crying: the latter few coming from, but not limited to, those who are edging closer to finishing their respective theses for Honours and PhDs. We, of course, wish them all the best, but know very well that they will do very well. (On a side note, we have started keeping a close eye on coffee prices in the stock market; for no reason whatsoever).
New ideas bring new challenges, and the designing of Gravelmonkey shirts is no exception. We are in the process of getting shirts made, mostly so we will become even easier to spot in the wild, but also because it breathes and air of professionality-ness... After all, are we not all professionals? (Don't answer that).
Very importantly, on behalf of all of us here at the Gravelmonkeys, I would like to extend a warm, hearty welcome to Cedric 2.0, AKA Alyssa Erding. She, too, hails from Macalester College in the US of A, and will be here with us for the duration of this semester. Alyssa, make yourself at home; there're drinks in the fridge and food in the... there're drinks in the fridge... I think...
More news will be coming your way in the weeks ahead, so keep your TV sets tuned.
Ruby is red,
Azurite is blue,
My poem is awesome,
Your rhyming is poo!
