I have been defeated…

Michael Pollan has won out.  I couldn’t do it.  I couldn’t finish the treacherous A Place Of My Own (APOMO) or as I like to call it: A Pain In My Ass (APIMA).  As detailed before, I have been having a tough time getting started.  Well I continued to peek at The Fat Duck Cookbook and soon, I found myself reading other cookbooks exclusively for a couple of weeks under the false pretenses that I was just “referencing materials”.  But I knew it, the books knew it, Hell, even the dog knew it.  APIMA was on the way out. 

Now that it has hindered my reading for a couple of weeks I have nestled it down into the stack of books waiting for a bookshelf to sit on.  Maybe in a couple years I will pick it up again or when I am having a Mid 20’s crisis and I need some painful book to read that is worse than real life.

Well some sayings that are appropriate for the situation:  Out with the old, in with the new.  Change or Die.  It takes a couple seconds to say Hello, but forever to say goodbye (Well in my case 3 weeks).  Confucius say:  Don’t read crappy book.
