So. It's a little before half past nine at night. I've worked through pretty much solidly from 5 this morning. (I don't do all-nighters, not even when pretty much everything is in the balance; I know from experience I get more done by sleeping for 6 hours and then working for 2, than trying to bash through for 8.)

Good things: Bad things: The last section of my acknowledgements says:
The crowd at the Livre d’Or for keeping me sane.
MF, unanima mea soror
Thank you so much for all the comfort and advice and rooting for me, in the past couple of days especially but really ever since I joined LJ. (The slightly cryptic reference to my LJ friendslist is because I don't want the examiners to find this journal with creative googling. But I mean you guys.)

Thank you for taking the time to check in, and doubly thank so for doing so now, when it had time to propagate to me before I left work; was getting concerned, and would have been a mite worried to hear nothing at all from you today. *hug*

So. It's a little before half past nine at night. I've worked through pretty much solidly from 5 this morning. (I don't do all-nighters, not even when pretty much everything is in the balance; I know from experience I get more done by sleeping for 6 hours and then working for 2, than trying to bash through for 8.)

That's eminently sensible of you, and I'm getting much better about that. [ I've told you the story with the 120-hour working week in it, haven't I ? ]

I ran into the wife of my convener (who is herself the convener for the other two PhD students, S&S), and she says the Friday deadline is not as absolute as I thought it was when I was panicking. As long as the appropriate people get their copies sometime next week, it's all fine. There's no reason on earth this won't happen.

Excellent. I had been hoping it was something like this.

I've been awake for 19 hours and counting and not eaten for 9. My hands are killing me and I'm generally a wreck. There aren't enough hours between now and tomorrow to recover from what I've done to myself.

Think in terms of how much functionality you need to recover until the thing is at the printers. All else you just need to hold off until you've done that and got back to bed.

That's lovely. Thank you.

Dear fish, print in large letters and stick below your screen the following: "Eating is not a displacement activity." You have to eat! (damn, am I a Jewish mother or what?)

I'm glad you've finally beaten it into submission, though, congrats, hugs, tea, chocolate.

Well done, you! Glad to hear it's all there, and I send a sympathetic nod in the direction of your pagination woes. (Actually, I *still* had some misnumbered pages by the time I submitted mine - don't ask!)

Now take it down the copy shop and yhave yourself a well earned rest! Champagne in order, I think. Who's taking you out for some bubbly?

I haven't said anything to your earlier posts because I know I'm just going to say "it's going to be okay" and "*hugs*". So.. uhm.. *hugs* and glad to hear it's going to be okay.
