this bloody book

this book is driving me nutz. the footnotes (well, they are actually endnotes) are driving me nutz. the footnotes within the footnotes are driving me nutz.

footnote number 210 is completely unnessisary.

"Avril has vividly white hair -- as of the last few months before Himself's felo de se -- that looks like it never went through the gray stage (it mostly didn't) and legs whose taper you can see T. Axford is appraising with the frankness of adolescence as she paces a bit in front of the crowded seminar table, in full if kind of oblique-angled view of the people in the waiting room.210" --page 510 Infinite Jest

210. Hal and Mario long since had to accepta the fact that Avril, at 50+, is still endocrinologically compelling to males.

we don't need one Mr. David Foster Wallace to point out that the sons of an over 50 year old woman would not be thrilled with the fact, but still understand, that their mother is a looker.

that is all.

no wait it's not. madame psychosis is a reference ot infinite jest

now, that is all.
