Night Shift...

Bleh,

I think I may have accidentally night shifted myself....

All this week, I've been getting home, chilling out a bit and then taking a nap because I'm pretty much exhausted from work. Today I decided to take a little nap around 6:30... I woke up about 30 minutes ago. 7 hours of sleep is way more than I normally get. I doubt that I'll be able to get back to sleep before sunrise... grumble grumble grumble....

I'm turning into such the old fart. Once upon a time, I'd be thrilled that I was awake at these hours. I loved being able to wander out once most people where asleep. Going for walks down the institute corridors in the wee hours of the morning was fun. There was no telling what random treasures you might find in some little alcove. It was common practice for the various labs & offices to put their trash out in the hallways... In theory so that phys plant could remove it, but often it would be given a thorough picking over by the various scavengers lurking the hallways late at night. I spent many a night lugging some discarded treasure back to my lair.

This would also be the perfect time to go up to the top of one of the high rises with some music and maybe a good book and find a nice spot near a window to relax in. I've lost count of the number of times I saw Boston wake up as the sun came up. Seeing the trickle of cars grow to a steady stream, headlight winking off as the sun crept higher. Watching the crew folks out on the river. Sometimes I think I must have been a gargoyle in a past life. There are very few things that I find as comforting as being perched at the top of a very tall building looking out at my city. I may be paranoid and neurotic about some things, but heights, especially extreme ones are extremely relaxing.

I think I'm going to go out for a drive. Maybe find a perch on top of the mountain somewhere.

Heh, I don't know if I'd go so far as to shoot him in the elbow, but I always thought that was a strange thing for him to say. I guess since I know what he sounds like in real life, the thought ot him actually saying *teehee* is really quite disturbing ;-p
