It's a gamble when you don't know how to stop

I haven't slept all night and I'm so tired that the simple act of switching which hand I used to twist the top off a prescription bottle almost caused me to swallow a childproof cap instead of the morning meds in question, but I have an appointment to get my thumb looked at in just about forty minutes and my mother has loaned me her copy of Boileau-Narcejac's D'entre les morts (1954), currently reprinted under its much better-known movie tie-in title of Vertigo, which I haven't read since 2009 and I am looking forward to finding out if all the noir I've watched since then makes a difference to my reading of the novel. But mostly I need to catch this bus.
