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.

A question

Things are still quite thoroughly insane. The fellowship applications continue to eat up vast amounts of time. My students are still freaking out, being needy, and demanding to have stuff graded Right. Now! Despite my best efforts, I've gotten sucked into a political crapfest that has to do with my now-resigned student government post. And I had a dream, a couple of nights ago, that involved Ayn Rand wearing a tie-front, midriff-baring top.


So the blogging will continue to be light until at least this weekend.

However, in the meantime, a question: If your cat seems very healthy and has never had difficulties with the litter pan, but suddenly craps all over the floor, that probably means he's pissed off at you, right?
