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.

Why I love Twisty Faster: Part 1,987

I'm not sure I 100% agree with Twisty's analysis of the situation, but she's always so righteously funny and angry and smart that I don't really care. And I mostly agree with her, anyway.

Plus, damned if she doesn't have the most amazing use of vocabulary and the best portmanteau word inventions I've seen in the blogosphere (which is saying a lot, 'cause there are some bloggers with some serious writing chops out there).

And she's got graphic design skillz, too! I don't imagine you're going to see a better political cartoon anywhere than that one, right there.
