Miss Information is annoyed by academiaWell, it's September finally and the library is a pretty dull place with all the kids back at school. It almost seems like an actual real life library.
Miss Information is back at school, too. Traumatised by a summer history course she vowed to stay away from that discipline and signed up for a gender studies course instead. She was happy. Then she got the course outline. It's a gender course all right. Gender in the Renaissance. She should really read those course descriptions before she registers.
She's also taking a literature course which sounded dull (from the name, obviously she didn't read the course description for that one either). However, it could turn out to be interesting, mainly because the professor is a giant pinata of crazy. She isn't just insane. She's fucking insane.
During the first lecture she made an occasional attempt at teaching, drawing baffling mind maps on the board, but frequently wandered off topic and off planet. Her first husband was an artist. Her second husband was messy. She's had mental health issues. Tina Turner is cool. Janis Joplin is responsible for the declining health of society. Don't ask.
The professor laughed, cackled really, after everything she said. The class laughed too, but it was more of a "let's stay on the good side of the crazy lady" kind of laughter.
She sang--the Eensy Weensy Spider, which was actually related to the course, O Susannah, which wasn't and What's Love Got to Do With It, presumably to demonstrate her fondness for Tina Turner.
Fortunately there is no exam in this course but Miss Information dutifully took notes on everything, mainly because she didn't want to make eye contact. It's going to be a long semester.
