What the?

So my collaborator on a recent co-first-authored paper informed me that they received their reviews back today. Sweet Jimminy! It took exactly 30 days for the submission and return of the reviews. Here in agriculture-review-land, I had to wait over 100 days for the reviews of my submission to be returned to me (which I now need to address). My current submission has been in for 8 days. Wonder if I'll hear anything back in the next 22?

I'm so jealous. I am currently awaiting word on a paper that was submitted in May...early May.

Yeah, that's a long damn time to wait for a review. Not as long as I had to wait for my last review, but it's pretty darn long nonetheless. I'm hoping my latest submission turns out much better.
