Barrage of magazines

One week, every month, all my magazines come at once. They're Wired, Play, C/C++ User's Journal, and Game Developer Magazine. Heck, they all come in less than a week of each other. It's a barrage of magazines, and I'm compelled to read every page of every magazine. I love 'em.

But it's strangely stressful when the barrage occurs. So I dive into the magazines, neglecting my family, and when I come up for air, it's another three weeks of no magazines.

You'd think I'd learn to parcel out the magazines throughout the month. But no, I can't just have the unread magazines sitting there. Staring at me.
