I believe her confirmation email estimated current response times were between 6 and 8 weeks. I'm closing this one out at 56 days and writing the rejection letter I didn't receive.

Dear Overly Optimistic Querier,

Thank you for querying me for this project and submitting the first twenty pages that I duly ignored. Had you read the blog on my agency's website, you would have discovered that I respond to next to no queries. Chin up; it's a subjective business. Since I do not want you too feel as if you definitely wasted your time in querying me (you did), I have taken the liberty to compile a list of activities by which you would benefit rather than pursue this futile endeavor.

1. Take a statistics class and realized that the odds are not in your favor.
2. Mine ideas from agents' manuscript wish lists and shape them into an authentic conglomerate of a novel.
3. Research genre trends that will invariably change in the 6-8 weeks you await a response I won't write.

Don't think of it as rejection. Think of it as a lesson in developing a thicker skin. With this query letter, you're going to need it.
