RBOC: Up and Down Kinda Day

  • UP: It's warm, almost 70 degrees and I have on flip flops and Capri pants for the first time this season.

  • DOWN: It's going to be back to 40 on Sunday

  • UP: I got some very exciting personal unbloggable news today.

  • DOWN: It's unbloggable and I can't really talk to anyone IRL about it either.

  • DOWN: My dissertation manuscript was rejected.

  • UP: The reviews were fair and really quite positive in some spots.

  • DOWN: Have a major conference call with FC at 2:30 and I would much prefer to avoid that.

  • UP: It's Friday and I have a bunch of fun stuff planned for the weekend.
Never got to post this yesterday.

Bummer about the manuscript rejection, but hopefully the reviews will help you address any issues for a quick resubmission! Good luck!

Thanks UR. It was a bummer but I have to say my reviews were really quite positive. I have a friend who got a nasty review this week so in the grand scheme of things I lucked out.

At least the reviews were good! Always makes it a little easier to deal with.
Yay! for good stuff, even if it is unbloggable!

I hope the personal situation is all good. I fell into the sucky review camp last week. One reviewer said accept as is (!) but only wrote one line to back it up. The other thought it was unoriginal. So the editor went with the latter outright rejecting it :(
