more from Attila
My goodness, words certainly aren't failing me now. They haven't failed the cats either, who are racing through the apartment, interjecting loud comments, and tearing up the rugs with big bushy tails (err, the cats have big bushy tails, not the rugs).
Yesterday I received the final comments on a paper that has been more than a year in the making. The comments came from my former boss and now collaborator Attila. It amazes me how certain people can exercise such control over your biological functions. Just seeing her name appear in in bold in my Inbox makes me feel like I've received a kick in the chest.
Interestingly, her comments were relatively minor - she actually isn't very much of an expert on this topic, but was included more for political reasons - yet even her minor comments are stated in a fairly aggressive manner.
Fortunately, after feeling the initial "kick," I've been able to remind myself that she has absolutely NO CONTROL over my life anymore. All I need to do is to finish this paper and get it published..and then she will be out of my life (err, until we finish the next unfinished paper. argh).
