I responded with this email:
Hi [Student-For-Whom-Commonplace-Civility-Has-Gone-By-The-Wayside] --
I am on leave this year and am, therefore, unable to advise students. Please contact the Dean's office to be reassigned a new advisor.
P.S. In the future, when addressing professors, etc. I would suggest writing emails more carefully. For example, using capital letters where necessary (such as for the pronoun "I" instead of "i") and having a salutation such as "Dear Dr. So-and-so" and "Sincerely, So-and-so". These simple actions will make you seem much more civil and will encourage professors to write you back and address your need.
[Ilya Somin] Happy Saturnalia!
