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.

Still kicking, though not at all vigorously

Sorry it's been so moribund around here (again). I've been ill, and then suffering from migraines, for the past two weeks. So, yeah, I've been having too much fun to post anything for public consumption. After all, there's nothing like getting unscheduled laser-light shows when you close your eyes and having to wear cyborg shades everywhere you go to cheer a gal up!

In considerably more cheerful news, Beautiful Boss managed to get everyone on her staff a nice little bonus check and a commendation from Big City U's administration. Seriously, people, there just isn't a better boss anywhere. I know you envy me.
