Infinite Jest is Ruining my Life

Okay, so maybe it’s just ruining my reading habit.  I can’t finish it for the life of me.  I’ll admit I’m not trying that hard.  I think part of the problem was that I held back a bit this summer and tried to pace myself with the Infinite Summer folks…  Then I started to freak out about the GRE(s) and read this

and this

psych GRE

and this


almost in their entirety.  But not quite.

And now I’m thinking about application essays and trying to read with those in mind…  I’m only 200 pages away with Infinite Jest.  I could knock that out on a good wintry mix Sunday.  I’ll do it, eventually.  And I do like the book.  Sigh.

Yeah, so, remember last year when I read all the time?  And as recently as May when I wasn’t a caffeine fiend?  I bought this yesterday:


It is programmable so that my coffee will help me awaken in the morning.  I suppose if I had to choose between morning caffeine dependency and waking up at four and not being able to sleep (as has been the case for many years), I would choose the former, hands down.
