What happens every Thursday morning at the Manchester Journal:
- 1: I will call them as soon as the caffeine enters my bloodstream and I am out of this post-deadline hangover where the voices of angry board members are still echoing around in my cranial cavity, OK?
- 2: Yeah, I will call them in a second.
- 3: Mrrphgjhgmdjahhyeahwhatever.

Hello followers! Mary here!
I have just made it through my first full week at a real newspaper! I am now working at the Manchester Journal in Manchester, VT.

Well, except for one thing:
If you’re ever going to cover a small-town school board meeting, bring a book.
