Thesis Update!

So, I queried about my thesis, because last time I did, I was told the final marker said he'd have it in within two weeks. I was told that when the two weeks was up. Anyhow: queried this time, and it turns out he's finally returned it, and the marks are going to the faculty and it'll all be worked out and I'll finally know the result--

In a week or two.

Heh.

Maddening, isn't it? I really think the whole thesis-writing part of the PhD process is just a way of occupying some time until it comes to the real test: the torment that is the marking process.

If you don't go mad from either one of those, voila! they give you a thesis.

the real torment, as far as i'm concerned, is the constant questions from friends and family. gah! i was getting ready to record them to send down to the final guy!

Ah - that maddening stage during which the cat is already either alive or dead, but you're still not allowed to look in the box yet.

I think once the uni ppl have it, things should go much quicker.

do you think you'll ever be able to find out which examiner was the slacker??

are you just waiting for the final marks before you send the novel out for selling, or do you have other plans?

i actaully know which examiner it was. i only know who one of them was, and that's him. how lucky, huh?

i'm hoping to find an agent for the novel, first. i'm tired of doing the whole publisher crawl thing myself.

Deja vu, all over again. :-) I think recording everyone's questions and sending them to the guy is a fine idea... "You don't have to let ME know, but can you pls get back to all these people? kthx."
