I'm a stereotype: the eternal student, now forced to wonder What Comes Next. (The answer, apparently, is "Self-employed is the new unemployed.") I was born in Canada, grew up in Maine, and spent half my secondary-school years in England, so I'm slightly foreign everywhere (in Terry Pratchett's phrase) and perpetually confused about where my identity...though I've now more-or less settled on "academic". I'm an alumnus of the Perse School in Cambridge (it went co-ed while I was there), of Williams College (in the hills of western Mass...get lost while jogging and you'll wind up in New York or Vermont), of the Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of Toronto (which has the best parties ever, strange though it may sound), and have recently ceased sucking on the leathern teat of Mother Yale. I'm also Episcopalian, politically liberal, and getting divorced(complicated by kid, who didn't deserve this). If any of this freaks you out, this is not the place for you. ;)
Schreibergasse is the old name for a street in Konstanz, Germany, where I lived in 2005-6. As a Magister responsible for dealing with endless administrative documents, I feel a certain empathy with the previous inhabitants.
