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.

Aw, hell.

Samuel Alito is joining the Supreme Court.

Not like I haven't seen this coming for months, but still . . . damn, damn, damn. Other feminist bloggers are obviously going to be more eloquent than this, but I'm running very far behind on class prep and can't say more now.

Meanwhile, Zuzu's got some commentary and links up over at Feministe. Apparently, the filibuster we were hoping for didn't happen.
