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.

I just do not need this right now

I am kinda freaking out. There are many reasons for this, including the sudden appearance of three deadlines that will have to be met, a score or two of appointments to keep, a flotilla of emails to send out, an event to organize, and a whole passel of errands to run before I leave the country in less than two weeks. I could go on, but I won't.

I will simply ask this question: why can I find every single library book I've checked out other than the two which have been recalled, are overdue, and for which fines are accumulating by the day?
