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.

I interrupt this hiatus to report the birth of an Amazon

After suffering through a painful biopsy this week, Twisty will be undergoing an even more painful mastectomy next week. She says she expects the experience to improve her archery skills.

If anyone's deserving of Amazonian laurels, it's surely Twisty, but she's definitely going through hard times. If you read her blog, you already know she's a wonder. Let her know how much we appreciate her patriarchy-blamin', cancer-fightin', all-purpose-ass-kickin' self and lend her some moral support.
