All Nighter

During my short attempt at a nap, I felt our house moving in the wind. Maybe I was overly sensitive, but I can’t remember that before. I also noticed a substantial (though probably light) aluminum something, overturned on a lawn as I drove in.

Here’s a phrase Stef and I haven’t shared in a long time – “all nighter.”

I am up and at my desk, at work. It’s half past four on Sunday morning. This shouldn’t be. This is when I go to sleep!

This has been scheduled for a while. Matt Scott has the day off and we’re out of subs.

There’s little I could do to prepare As the witching hour drew near, it was obvious I wasn’t going to sleep. I tossed and turned for about half and hour before hopping in the shower and getting dressed.

The roads are quiet when you leave the house around 4:00 AM. It was nearly three miles before I saw the first car.

Dunkin’ Donuts is quiet too. There are actually two I know of that are open all night. I went out of my way to the one I felt was better lit and safer.

We had torrential downpours yesterday and strong winds since the rain left. Mother Nature is having a twig and branch sale – they’re everywhere.

During my short attempt at a nap, I felt our house moving in the wind. Maybe I was overly sensitive, but I can’t remember that before. I also noticed a substantial (though probably light) aluminum something, overturned on a lawn as I drove in.

I suppose it’s reassuring that I can push myself like this. I’m really not in that bad shape… or at least I don’t feel I am.

My bed will be very inviting at 10:30 AM

  1. Eww.. Morning show… It’s probably even worse on the weekend. (We don’t have a weekend morning show.)

    Speaking of open-all-night Dunkin’ Donuts… There’s one on James Lovell and Wisconsin Ave. in Milwaukee that got a few of us through an all-night editing session.

  2. Hey, look on the bright side — because of the time change, you actually lost an hour less of sleep! 🙂
