#whatprofessorswear Why, yes, I would. I would love some mustard. Actually, I don't like the taste of mustard. Some people love it. Some people hate it. I'm in the middle. I do enjoy wearing a mustard-colored sweater, though. I bought this Banana Republic sweater years ago, and occasionally I wear it--like once a year. It's…Read more Would You Like Some Mustard on That?
#whatprofessorswear Y'all, I have fallen behind in my fashion blogging because I blogged eight times on the PBS Sanditon miniseries. I made it through Sanditon, so now it's time to make it back to What Professors Wear. Thanks for your patience. So I'm about a month behind in my sartorial blogging. Yikes! This post, therefore,…Read more Valentine’s Week, or Better Late than Never

She was whisked away to London by some scoundrels looking to receive payment for a gambling debt. Whose debt? Why, Mr. Otis Molyneux's! The horrid Mr. Howard intends to make the unwilling Miss Lambe…Read more Sanditon on PBS, Ep. 6
Let the games begin! This episode was more exciting than the previous one. The characters played cricket! Miss Denham smiled (for real)! Miss Lambe was "bundled"! Miss Heywood set out for London! Let's start with cricket. I don't know how to play this game. It's British, involves a ball and bat, and looks like baseball.…Read more Sanditon on PBS, Ep. 5
#whatprofessorswear Winter is surely not the time to be thinking about hummingbirds. Hummingbirds are the stuff of spring, summer, and warm, sunny days. Hummingbirds make you think of flowers, nectar, and greenery. They do not make you think of frigid temperatures, snowfall, or--worse--dead grass and barren tree branches. But sometimes we have to bring a…Read more Fluttering Around
