Dissertation meme

The last word of the dissertation...now I can participate on the meme! I can! I can! I can, I can, I can! !!!
It is:

(Tonight I am really close to finishing! Only some slight additions in the bibliography and a couple of lines in the acknowledgements.....)


If I use only one sentence to thank the Prof I hate, does this count as a swear word?

Discount coffee

Again. I am sitting over my thesis hoping for this to be the very last night of making final revisions. But tonight another thing bothers me. I bought coffee on Friday. Not my usual brand, but another one which was on discount. It tastes awful!. Why did I do this? Why? I am tired and I need to concentrate and this coffee is almost unbearable. Yuck!

Paper promotion?

Well, remember the paper? It is out now. I haven't received the printed journal yet, but there is already an announcement on the journal's web site. Yeah!

Now I am wondering if I should promote my paper. I found out that a certain BigProf is teaching a course on exactly my topic this term. He has listed all sorts of references at his course web site, but not my paper. I know this Prof in person, as he was teaching here once, and I have met him at conferences. Should I email him about my paper? If so, should I attach it right away?

He happens to be on the editorial board of the journal, so I am wondering he might know about it anyway and he considers it to be a bad peice of work, that's why he does not mention it on his site.

Is it too pushy to promote one's paper in such a way?
