The magazine motherlode has been purged

Remember this picture? Well, there was a much needed intervention on Monday. I didn't so much toss away the magazines as the magazines were tossed away on my behalf while on the sidelines I kind of wimpered at the imminent loss of all that potentially great reading material.

(Who are we kidding? I was never going to get around to digesting them all. If I were unemployed, perhaps ... but then I wouldn't be able to pay the rent to house all the magazines in the first place.)

I'll admit it, despite seeing all those New Yorker stories bite the dust, it was a relief to be able to start over. After all, one need only wait for the new issues to arrive to let the collection begin again.
