Ancrene Wiseass

A would-be medievalist holds forth on academia, teaching, gender politics, blogging, pop culture, critters, and whatever else comes her way.

Yes, this really is yet another blog by a disillusioned grad student. I sympathize, but that's just the way it has to be. For hints as to what my bizarre alias means, click here and here and, if needed, here and here. To get a sense of what I'm up to, feel free to check out the sections called "Toward a Wiseass Creed" and "Showings: Some Introductory Wiseassery" in my main blog's left-hand sidebar. Please be aware that spamming, harassing, or otherwise obnoxious comments will be deleted and traced.

Okay, so the cuteness is being deferred a bit. This is the result of this morning's cursory hair brushing.

Did I mention that I've learned even short-haired orange tabbies shed like mad?

Perhaps this is the kind of thing that inspired these people. Don't worry about what might turn up under the tree at Christmas, though: I don't know how to knit.
