I have proofs!

So the journal have sent me final proofs, which is kind of exciting because now the stuff I wrote looks all formal and ready to print and professional. On the negative side, they sent the proofs at 2 pm on a Friday, and want them returned within 48 hours. Apparently the 48 hours thing is standard practice, but 48 hours when 45 of them are weekend seems a little mean.

Anyway my printer has decided it won't play ball, so I'll need to go into work to do this. And I'm not going to do that in the last half-hour before shabbat so I'll end up doing this in a panic on Sunday. I need to get signatures and authorisations for payment, too, which is going to be hard to do during the weekend.

Also, I've never proofed anything before so I don't really know what I'm doing, which is kind of scaring. Then again, I'm on the verge, the very brink, of being an actual published scientist, so that's pretty cool!
