I'm something of an early bird. These days I wake up around 5:30. Leave the house by 7:00 unless I'm running "late." Get to work around 7:00-7:30 or so. I'm not terribly sure why, other than I think it helps me get more hours in. Does it? Results are inconclusive at this time. Mind you I often stay up until midnight-12:30am playing my computer game.
Benjamin Franklin is quoted as saying: "Beer is proof that G-d loves us and wants us to be happy." Replace "beer" with "hazelnut coffee" and that's me in the morning. More on that some other time.
Now I have a donut to consume (vanilla-frosted with sprinkles). Oh sweet sugary goodness, transport me from the sunlit, sleepy morn to a place of slumber and contentment.. at least for a minute or two.
ADDENDUM: It looks like I've lost all the comments to previous posts. Not sure why. Maybe my Haloscan account/comments was inactive too long? *shrug* It's a shame but I'm not going to stress over it.
ADDENDUM II: Rather, it looks like there may have been a minor, temporary hiccup with Haloscan. Comments appear to be preserved, in place and accessible. Rejoice yon masses. Or repent. Whatever.
