07:00 pm - A horrible no-good day
And it was a day to bring me back down into reality. First, me, this morning, reversing out of the driveway when the gate blows onto the side of my (new) work car thereby ripping off the side mirror, denting the side panel and bending the gate. Okay, gate I can fix (and did) but now I have to front up to work and hand over a broken car. Harrumph...

Second, phone interview. Sounded incoherent and like I couldn't string two words together. Went off on irrelevant tangents and generally squirmed for the 40 minutes I was on the phone. If they even consider offering me the position, I would be totally flummoxed. Oh well...

Then, about to leave work when I receive an email from the editor of an international journal stating that the manuscript I had submitted to them for peer review was unanimously rejected and that even with major revision, this particular journal wouldn't consider looking at it again. They suggested attacking the manuscript and sending it to another journal. This is of concern as this is the 2nd time this manuscript has been rejected and revised. It is also describing the central tenet of my PhD and which all subsequent chapters are dependent on. It just summed my day up really...

But then came home and held the adorable baby_babalon for loads of smiles for me. Makes everything else just seem so irrelevant...

Hang in there!!! That actually sounds normal for many journal submissions. Seems like it might be the wrong journal not the wrong paper.

Take care

Yeah - what Bec said. Awful about the interview and the car. Good to have a baby_babalon to hug. And a big_babalon as well.
