What a terrible thing to put in a professional/academic letter.

a. I made it pretty clear that this is a really rough draft, still trying to find the right tone/balance

b. I may or may not have been buzzed when I wrote this...

c. eh, I know I've read worse

If you post it, I'm going to critique it if I so desire so don't get all haterade on me for doing so. Also your defense is amusing. "But adcomm, let's be honest, first this is pretty good for how drunk I was when I wrote it. And don't act like you haven't seen worse than 'crap icing'"

Well yeah, that would be a ridiculous "defense" if it was aimed at an adcomm...but it wasn't. It was directed at you.

And no haterade here, just general sass. If you can't handle it, then don't dish it in the first place.
