Sent off the thesis to my committee members. My advisor called this morning with very few revisions and said it looked good. The defense is in 13 days, so I am sending it out only 1 day late. (Whew!) After years of work, that doesn't seem too bad. I'm happy to have actually found some results, even if they weren't exactly the ones I was looking for, which is typical of research anyway.
So when my defense date comes, if anyone wants to send me flowers or a nice, artfully arranged basket of (live) lab rats, I will accept them graciously as is my due, for then I will be the Supreme Galactic Mistress of Science!! (Simon suggested the "Galactic" part. Come to think of it, he also suggested the "Supreme" part!)
I feel pretty tired after being up all night finishing it, but that's fine. I treated myself today by ordering from Amazon a brand-new scratch-and-sniff book and two used children's books ($20). I do feel a little guilty, because I actually have negative $250 in the bank at present, but if I don't reward myself when I do my masters thesis, then when the heck would I?
