I wasn't entirely sure what to make a post about, and then got a bit of a random idea and decided to see if I could actually turn it in to a post. When people discover that I generally wake up at about 11 in the morning (well, 10 right now thanks to daylight savings) they tend to assume that I'm a pretty lazy person. That's the kind of feeling that being a late riser generates. People perceive you as being lazy and it can really suck.
Now cats ARE lazy. And cute.
The thing is I also get to sleep at about 3 in the morning. Well, I go to bed about then and end up falling asleep around maybe 4 or so. The point being that even though I wake up late I also go to bed pretty late. I'm what people would term a "night owl". Someone who doesn't quite sleep through the day, but does still stay up pretty late. There was a time I was completely nocturnal though. I'd go for walks any time between 2 and 5 in the morning too. Good times. Except that one time someone tried to mug me.
It's a lot less fun in games. Though Saints Row IS one of my favourite games.
The reason I'm up so late is a pretty simple one; I have American friends. To my fellow Brits it's like I'm staying up until 3 in the morning but realistically what's happening is that I'm staying up until 10 in the EST time zone. I actually have a pretty "normal" sleeping pattern of 10-6, which is the sleeping schedule I had when I was a kid. TV used to be so awesome at 6 AM. I just operate on the wrong time zone. I do sometimes wonder if I could go to America and not be displaced by the time zone difference at all seeing how I sort of live on American time already.
