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.

Revenge of the rodent?

I think it may have had fleas that it passed on to Mouse.

Because I woke up a couple of days ago with some small, itchy bites which I thought were maybe from a little spider, but now I have more of them. And spiders don't usually stick around to bite another day. I haven't seen any fleas on Mouse and he doesn't seem to be scratching, but I can't figure out what else could be going on.

Dammit. I really don't have time for this. And I'm scratching like mad, which is very undignified.
