Just wanted to say that you guys all rock, and that I'm feeling much better today; your comments have been really helpful--if in part because now I know that I'm not the only one with an inappropriate advisor.

I didn't get a chance to comment yesterday, so I'll just add one more here. My friend in grad school used to dye his hair blue, and his advisor told him that if he didn't stop, she wasn't going to let him work with patients anymore. Up until then, no one had been freaked out by him.

hi LL, I just started reading your blog and wanted to say good luck with your job opportunity - I myself am a recent English Ph.D. (and a medievalist) with a great one-year teaching position on the East Coast, but I struck out for a second time out on the market (although I only had my Ph.D. for this last year). It's rough and I hope that you do really well! It's been nice to read your blog!
