Is it possible to temporarily stop Google Reader feeds from updating?

I'm going on vacation for a week sans any technology whatsoever except an emergency cell phone, and I don't want to come back to eighty bazillion unread Google Reader items.
I know I can "mark all as read" when I get back, but I'd just as soon turn off the information spigot entirely, if that's possible, and turn it back on when I get home. I have about 150 subscriptions, so I'd rather not unsubscribe/resubscribe to them all individually.
I'm not one of those people who will care what I miss while I'm gone, so I have no desire to see the vast number of unread items that will await if there's a way to avoid doing so. My search of Greader help and of the askme archives didn't uncover any ideas, but I'm not the most effective searcher in the world so I thought I'd ask.
