Why hello world how are we today? Fine? Good good, I’m glad. Oh, how am I you ask? Well, I’m okay. I think I’m fighting a losing battle against insanity. Yes yes, laugh it up and tell me I’m already insane. I’ll just tell you I am going even more insane. This book House of Leaves really is getting under my skin, in a creepy way, and it doesn’t help that when I read it I’m tired from work. Combine this with the drain this book places on my mental faculties and can it really be helped that I’m wondering if a footnote just disappeared from my book?
I was reading. The footnotes were in the 180’s, but something referenced footnote 150 so I went back and checked footnote 150. Footnote 150 made sense in context, so I was content with the lack of redundancy. I flipped back to my original page and the marker for footnote 150 is no where to be found. I flip some more. Footnote 150 itself is also MIA.
I closed the book.
I haven’t opened it since.
