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.

Two things

ONE I am almost ridiculously happy that there's a Veteran's Day holiday on Friday, because it means I don't have to spend half of Thursday and nearly all of Friday on teaching, and I will be able to work on the prospectus and grade All. Day. Long.

Yes, I realize that's a sad-ass way to spend a day off, and I realize it's probably even more sad to be happy about it, but there you go. I will also stop and spare a thought or two (maybe even a phone call or email or two) for a veteran.

TWO I really need to start getting into bed earlier.
