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.

Blegging for the animals

North Shore Animal League America

The disaster has killed and stranded many animals, too. North Shore Animal League America, among other groups, is leading rescue efforts for the critters. If you want to help, you can send money, but they also need homes for displaced and abandoned pets.


UPDATE: The ASPCA is on the job, too, and has a page full of pet disaster preparedness suggestions. I'm planning to work on some of these things during the next week. Having realized that both Mouse and I would have some difficulty getting out of here in the event of a disaster is motivating me to get to work on several fronts.
