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.

Teaching facilities

Okay, so my students and I have dealt with the small room with the bad ventilation, echo-chamber effect, and inadequate blinds. We have even dealt with the almost overpowering noise that occasionally comes from the naked pipes running directly overhead from the neighboring bathrooms.

But it's a good thing that this is our penultimate class meeting, because I don't think I could continue to deal with feeling a little drop of liquid fall on me from those bathroom pipes as I'm leading a discussion.
