Save us from ourselves!

So I bought this pretty edition of David Foster Wallace's Broom of the System when Joey and I were in Ohio. I read two-thirds of it, then made the mistake of putting it down for a while and came back to it this week. Now: SO CONFUSED. Let this be a lesson to you, all ye who resolved to read Infinite Jest (or even other DFW fiction) this year - don't put it down and think it'll be fine to pick up again later!

If you'd rather read comics, this little snippet from Octopus Pie is cute and funny, even though it's about a maddening topic.

I joined a chess club and I started taking Cantonese lessons! But more importantly I have been re-watching 30 Rock, and it makes me happy. Whenever people judge me for how much of my time I spend watching TV and horror movies I wonder if they've ever even been happy ever. EVER.
