I just hit send. The paper went winging its way to my advisor and my co-advisor, where it will sit collecting virtual dust in their in-boxes until it's far to late for their comments to be incorporated without driving me batty. But, hey, I've held up my end of the bargain. I don't suppose they'd dare tell me to delay my defense because they only had 3 weeks to read a chapter, would they? No, of course they wouldn't. They are reasonable human beings.
And tomorrow I'll work on the introduction to the whole darn thing. And maybe do some blogging of substance (to borrow a phrase from Trillwing).
