There is very little in the world that feels as satisfying as being all caught up on New Yorkers.
I am assuming this sensation of accomplishment is akin to conquering a small land-locked country or perhaps winning a People's Choice Award.
The past year and a half it has been a struggle to keep on top of this monster. Back in the day when I was on public transportation a solid 3 - 4 hours of my day, I could finish one in about a day and a half - but once my commute became on foot - I was lucky if I made it through one in a week. This meant that I no longer read many books because if I was reading a book, I was abandoning my New Yorker responsibility and they start to pile up and you start coming home late and your wife smells like someone else's cologne...its a slippery slope.
Anyway, with my new commute (Still think its okay!) I knew it was a matter of time before I conquered this particular monster. And I will be real with you, I did not read all the articles. And I did not read most of the fiction (I am very picky about my New Yorker fiction - for absolutely no reason at all - in case you were wondering).
The problem with stuffing this much knowledge down my retinas is now I have no idea what I am talking about - but I totally think that I do. In one week I read articles about....a whole bunch of things that I cannot remember right now and I won't be able to remember them until I start talking and getting all confused. And then there is judgement.
Anyway, I am feeling quite accomplished and like there is nothing I can't do...except maybe get my ass into a gym.
