A distinguished Doctor of Thinkology, Polstergeist haunts the internet searching for joy in the weirdnesses, imperfections, and absurdities of academia, family life, pop culture, and literature, and yet never goes further than her own backyard (not entirely true–sometimes she visits the front yard or, occasionally, a restaurant). She is a college lecturer, a wife, a mother, and a writer who manages to fill all of these roles in a completely unremarkable fashion. And so she remarks on them here. In a public forum. Read it–you’ll feel much better about yourself.
