Between 5 p.m. yesterday and 5 a.m. this morning, I:

  • rode my bike for an hour and a half
  • got my hair cut
  • got coffee
  • got an amazing black satin eyelet lace Betsey Johnson dress to wear to the wedding for fifteen dollars at a thrift store
  • got some other clothes in case I chicken out with the dress
  • reserved a hotel room for three nights in Dubuque
  • reserved a cab to take me to the airport
  • laundered
  • folded
  • showered
  • packed
  • worked
  • got within 150 pages of the end of Infinite Jest
  • didn't sleep

Between 5 a.m. and 5 p.m. today, I:

  • caught a ride to the airport with the nicest cab driver ever, who, upon hearing I was going to a wedding, regaled me with stories of weddings gone wrong
  • was astonished at how busy PDX is at 5:30 a.m.
  • got coffee
  • flew to Minneapolis
  • mused about what I would say if required to tell a funny story about Chris and/or Ginny
  • failed to comprehend MSP, as usual
  • actually checked in code during 20 minutes in the boarding lounge at MSP
  • flew to Cedar Rapids
  • got within 100 pages of the end of Infinite Jest
  • remembered that the Cedar Rapids airport is The Eastern Iowa Airport, as in, the sticks, as in, it honest-to-God looks like you're landing in a hay field when you're landing
  • rented a car for the first time in my life (and did the walk-around-the-car inspection (ha, like I know what to look for) and fiddled with the mirrors and seat, but I haven't started it yet; I hope I remember how to drive)
  • didn't sleep

Between now and 5 a.m. tomorrow, I need to:

  • get coffee
  • find a Kinko's and go there for a super-secret pre-wedding errand
  • find the hotel
  • find the wedding site
  • call my parents
  • call Maya
  • pass out

That's far closer to the end of Infinite Book than I've ever gotten.

Well, now I've finished it. But to say it ended would be a lie.
