My bad. He said he had insomnia so I figured he was at home and not asleep at work.

pac, mofet's right. those are 2 all the way from the hot grill The Hot Grill. it's a joisey institution. and if you've ever been to jersey, you know we need more institutions...

they're open until 2 am on the weekends. i had saturday night iff and couldn't sleep, so i hopped in the car for those sloppy beauties.

20 minutes round trip including ordering the dogs, and i was chowing down.

msmofet, msmofet, msmofet........

Having to go further than your refrigerator for something just fantastic to eat is impossible for me to even entertain in my imagination.

You cook the most incredibly, fantastic meals that your husband having to leave your home to find "quik-food" is just unbelievable to me! Teach that man to reach into the freezer, take out one of msmofets deluxe, fantastic, awesome meals in plastic and nuke it!

Has he not seen your photos? (I'm very sorry of he's blind and has never SEEN one of your meals.)

I would crawl though a mile a broken glass, just to be able to enjoy one of your meals, and this man is going "out"? The shame of it!

I just can't imagine going out to grab something to eat in the wee hours period, even if anything was open around here. It seems you would be more wide awake than you already are.

one man's wee hours are another man's daily shift. i'm becoming an expert at finding what's available in those wee hours. everything from american diner, greek diner, fried chicken, pizza, fast food, hot dogs, mexican, japanese, chinese, italian, middle eastern, etc..

and that's just on the west side of manhattan. most are open until 1am weekdays, 2am on weekends, and some 24 hours.

Night shift workers don't go to sleep in the middle of the night...but go to an afternoon matinee and as soon as the lights go down you are OUT! I could never stop during the day, I had to keep moving, sit down and my body went to sleep.

You are not an insomniac if you can't sleep at night when you are usually working. But yes, if you are unable to sleep when it's time to fall asleep during your regular sleep cycle.
