    Ok i went to bed at like 4am, woke up shortly after 9am because of a horrible nightmare. So i'm going to go ahead and get up and see what it looks like outside before noon.

    I've been wanting to break this horrible cycle of staying up all night- it comes way too easy for folks like me. So if i stop making sense its because this feels like the middle of the night to you morning people!

    Maybe i will actually get that funny feeling of being tired before 4am for once in my life tonight! I can't wait!

    Right now is prime crab time so they are all excited in the tank. I think i'll go take advantage of that entertainment right now!

    McDonald's breakfast is always a plus

    OH yeah! The sad thing is that i'd usually get it before going to bed (after grocery shopping) but i have my little one here still asleep and i don't think all the "pancapes" in the world right now would make her happy if i woke her up right now.

    Plus its 10am and i think they shut off breakfast around that time. Oh well Sugar Smacks it is!

    And here's me about to finish work for the day! I hope you have a good one. I'm looking forward to cycling home, cracking open a beer and chilling out for a couple of hours.

    Beat you by about an hour, although having just boarded a train from Plymouth to London I won't be home for another four hours. Still, the view out of the window is nice and I guess I can always grab a beer from the Buffet!

    Morning is vastly overrated. Horrible, horrible, concept.

    I hear ya, I have been trying to get to bed before 3:00am, and was largely unsuccessful last night. I blame the program Acoustica Beatcraft for my recent insomnia though... it is allowing me to get my drum tracks down without setting up a hundred microphones and processors etc.

    We're polar opposites......I'm in bed between 8 and 9 PM and get UP between 4 and 5 am......I have a hard time stating awake past 9!

    Thanks!
    Now, you take care, and don't overdo this morning thing. You're usually still up when I start work.

    I wouldn't fancy doing that journey too often. Still, I suppose it's a good chance to catch up on reading and sleep.

    Good grief, no!

    I simply got tired with trying to explain complex concepts in emails and decided to pay a visit to draw some 'pictures'!! Just an overnight visit this time.

    I come down here a few times each month when I'm in the UK. A change of 'scene' can sometimes help me focus. and I prefer face to face to Vidcon. I come by train because I find it's more conducive to the thought process, or I can simply watch the west country slip by the window, as necessary.

    Right now the sun is shining as I pass Totnes (I think) and just round the headland, I've attached pictures (using phone at getting toward 100 mph so not the best!)!

    Is sux being a late night person in a day person world. sux worse having virtually no circadian rhythm at all. Can force myself to stay up far longer than I should. Let us know when naptime is, or you should be good and plenty tired tonight.

    LOL -- when you find the "secret" to waking before noon, let me know, MMe Rouge. My older kids' ears are almost impossible to "vertical-ize" before noon!

    Personally, I'm a morning person. The earlier the better. I love getting a jump start on the day and getting my work done early!

    PS: Great photos, Dong20!

    There are times when I stay up all night as well - phases that I go through where I crash at 6am and surface a bit past noon. It's tempting to do because nighttime is peaceful and you really feel like you can collect your thoughts. But it so often clashes with real-world obligations, and makes you tired all the time as well. It's like no matter how long or late you sleep, you're nearly always fatigued when you're nocturnal. I've been sensible lately (going to bed early and getting up early) and it's working out pretty well. I have much more energy, in any case.

    Sweet! Can't say I'm all that fond of Plymouth but it's damn close to Cornwall and that's a place I love. Dath da Kernow!

    Morgan Spurlock says in his book that someone placed McBurgers wrapped up in his suit, forgot about them for a year and they didn't decay. They had dried out, but there was no mould, no smell...

    If you like eating fleshed tainted with a formalhyde analog, you're welcome. I know they "chemo" it to prevent bacteria---but---why even bother?
