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.

Stuff I recommend

Lawrence LeShan's How to Meditate

Lord Breaulove Swells Whimsy's Affected Provincial's Companion

H. G. Wells' The First Men in the Moon

Lingonberry preserves

Autumnal weather, in general

Listening to music again, especially this recording of Elgar's Cello Concerto in E Minor and Sea Pictures

Sleeping--especially underneath one of these and with one very sweet-tempered orange cat nearby.

This, especially since you can engrave pretentious Latin mottos on it if you buy it direct.

This show. The Shat in all his campy glory! Love. Him. And Boy Roomie has fixed things so that our crappy TV reception only causes the screen to roll three or four times per episode.


Finally starting to organize your files so you might have half a chance of finding things when you need them.

Setting an ideal weekly schedule for the first time in five years--and having the time to actually do that.

Not really keeping that ideal schedule, but being mostly okay with that because you're still getting more done than you would otherwise.

I don't recommend a two-day migraine, but hey--ya can't win 'em all.
