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.

Nobody need tell me how sad it is that I'm still in the grad lounge at this hour on a Friday night.

And yet, there is some consolation. Because it is on a grad-lounge computer on this lonesome Friday evening that I discovered Geoffrey Chaucer's blog.

Yes, I am going home now. Thanks for asking.
