What I mean is that I got final drafts of my dissertation to committee members today. I had to stand around and make 1240 copies, essentially. Then, I had to deliver them across campus. 3 in my home department, 1 across the street (but up 3 flights, down a state agency corridor and into the "secret" faculty lounge), and one about 6 blocks away. Not too bad, really. I just hope everyone can give it a good read between now and 7 June. I expect revisions, but no great overhauls - mostly the last chapter, It's difficult to put it all on the line: where do tepid claims depart from carefully worded limitations of your study? Where does crowing about your work turn into grand exuberance?
Anyway, there are last minute things and methods that really helped put it all in perspective, so I can't really complain about spending the extra week to smooth things out. Plus, my horoscope was really spot on for this week. Whew! Now to grade my students' papers... oh, shit, I only have until midnight tomorrow! :)
