and i'd also like to thank...

so my adviser sent me back his comments from the most recent draft of my thesis. this time he actually read through my results and even made it into the first part of my discussion. however, before he could bring himself to go through the second half of my discussion section (which isn't even done so it's only like 5 pages long right now) or review my tables and graphs, he felt he needed to go over my acknowledgments section.

that's right, my adviser "cleaned up" my acknowledgments section, taking out a couple words there, a couple words here and generally changing the phrasing of my thanks just ever-so-slightly. while i admit it is lame for me to already have my acknowledgments written up, i find it even more lame to grammar check them. and they weren't even incorrect, just not up to par with what my adviser wants. which is funny considering i copied them from another thesis from our lab and just changed the names.

and i hadn't even put in the people that have really helped me, like my family and friends who have to listen to me bitch about my adviser all the time...
