I had intended to post my final recap of William Gaddis’ JR today. But my family had been on vacation and I was feeling lazy. Then September 3 proved to be Labor Day, a perfect day to write thoughts about JR. The irony was not lost on me. But then I figured I’d fudge a bit, leave my Monday post until Tuesday and back date it (a good technique for checks too!).
Well, it turned out that my position was terminated at my job. Which means I got laid off. Right after Labor Day, and right when I was about to post some thoughts on JR.
That’s a pretty big helping of irony right there.
So here it is two days later, Sept 5 and I’m backdating this post (because I’m anal retentive and like to have a post per day). I’m happy that I had written a bunch of posts for this week already as I don’t have much gumption for writing about books right now (even though I read several good ones over the vacation).
So enjoy my ironic life and I’ll say a few words about JR next Monday, if I still think it’s funny.
Perhaps I’ll apply for a new job as Mister Ten-forty.
