Hooray for email, which provides such an uplifting end to the lousy mood I've been in all evening for no good reason:
"Dear Liberal Arts Lady,
The paper you submitted to Journal X has now been edited, and I am happy to inform you that it is acceptable for publication subject to a few final modifications."
Dissertation paper number 1, done (pending a few grammatical changes)! And just in time to count toward my first CV review. Sweet.
