The late late show!

Just wanted to say hello to those of you online in the "middle of the night". Not that many of us, but obviously a 'mighty' group!
No, am not an insomniac, just lucky (IMO) not to need much sleep.

I was up again, as usual, before you two, read DC and posted, then sat in the recliner. My back won't let me sleep through the night lately. I usually go back to bed around 6 am and up again around 8. Often, I find quite a crowd posting at night, but last night was pretty quiet.

Hey bucky tom, I did know about the time across the pond and in aussie, and was addressing thos of us in the wee small hours of U.S. time zones. But you're right, I should have been more explanatory.
I thought 'vampire' time started right after the clock strikes twelve and lasts until the first signs of dawn threaten to turn our blood-sucking amigos into dust.

I have to watch the clock and kind of force myself to go to bed at a decent time (before 2:00) sometimes. If I don't watch it, I end up on vampire time. For quite awhile I was going to bed at sunrise. I didn't want to sleep the day away, so I ended up not getting as much sleep as I needed. I'm trying (not with a lot of success for the most part) to get myself used to something close to a regular work schedule sleep pattern. I'm sure it will help when James gets a job.

i hate not being able to sleep. all to often it takes me a long time to go to sleep. but mostly am to sleepy to get up and do anything. don't believe em when they say , old people need less sleep. if i don't get eight or ten hours i am a major grouch.

lol, i work 11pm to frying time.

i really feel like a sanguivore some mornings. all of the studios and computer rack rooms that i work in have no windows, so when i walk out the door in the morning, i throw my cape up over my face, hiss, and retract from the sun.

It's not the first signs of dawn, I've found I can get home safely if I keep the mountain peak between me and the sun and stick to the shadows. The Necroglass in the Subaru helps, too! The apratment building is 2 stories and I park on the west, so no mad dash to the door.

However, since I am now working mostly daytime hours, I have to be very careful and hope for cloudy days.

Yeah...know the feeling! I miss creeping along the baseboards in the halls and sucking doing blood draws in the early mornings.

It is 3:42 a.m. here. I obviously didn't make it to bed early! I still have a couple things that need to be done, then I will head to bed. Hopefully I will be there by 4:30.

Jeez you guys--I'm never gonna venture out past midnight again without a garland of garlic cloves strung around my neck, vial of holy water in my pocket and cross firmly in hand...come to think of it, will have a mezuzah in the other hand just in case it's a Jewish vampire!

Just got back from a resto with live music and tonight it was a band with a couple of guys from the Coasters in it, so playing lots of 50s & 60s music, good fun.
Didn't spot one lurking vampire, maybe too many cops with wooden stakes!
