The answer is, "sometimes, yes":

From a proud AOL user:

Something tells me this girl might actually get work in San Francisco:

    I just stumbled onto your blog thru Glossy Scented Magazines. As the stbx wife of an English professor, I was intrigued by the idea of your wanting to be a fight starter at MLA. Do you teach at UHDT?

  3. Hi Karen -- no, I'm not an English teacher. It's just that I have strong opinions about grammar, and I'm always looking for a fight.

    Dear Mamacita--I am sincerely sorry you missed the arguments at the Univ. where the hus teaches.... over whether it was more correct to say: "the student... it" or "the student... he,she,it.."----the faculty was discussing how these pronouns should be used in the catalogue....lasted three weeks with two 6 hours meetings a week...
    Have you ever been to MLA? Karen
