Hold it right there, Mr. Big Head

My excitement about getting my first major publication was dulled by a note from the chief editor of the journal who wrote back to me yesterday to say, basically, I disagree with the reviewers and although your article is still provisionally accepted, there are about 150 changes I want you to make. 145 of these changes are tiny, five of them are going to take some time. I hope we can get something we mutually agree upon by the end of this week. If not, it won’t come out until April. That’s fine though. A pain in the ass, but fine — he is right on about 149 of his comments.
