Mornings Are For Dancing

I'm amazed, actually, at how precisely my moods coincide with certain times of the day. They go something like this...

before 6:00 a.m.: dead ... and if you wake me, irritable (Ramses)

6:00 - 7:30 a.m.: grouchy, sleepy, can't think of anything but going back to bed; grudgingly I get up, exercise, shower, get dressed, etc. ... but the whole time I'm wishing I was asleep (Leonard)

7:30 - 8:30 a.m.: starting to wake up ... brain begins to function; no noticeable mood for good or ill (Leonard)

8:30 - 11:30 a.m.: cheerful, bouncy, goofy, yiffy; I crank up the music and dance around the apartment like a red-maned fool. Ideas flow, and writing comes flooding out of me. (Drezzer)

11:30 - 1:30 p.m.: HONGRY! Doesn't matter how much I eat, I'm still HONGRY! I also tend to get annoyed that the day is halfway over already. Often sleepy. (Tiffany)

1:30 - 3:00 p.m.: Serious, fairly productive. Usually sleepy, but determined to get whatever's on my plate for the day done. (Tiffany)

3:00 - 4:30 p.m.: Angry that the day is mostly gone and I haven't gotten as much done as I wanted. It doesn't help that I'm asleep on my feet. Why am I so friggin' tired all the time??? GRRR! (Ramses)

4:30 - 6:00 p.m.: Look, I'm trying to concentrate, why does this whole Laurie-coming-home-and-us-eating-dinner have to happen right now? I've got stuff to do! (Leonard) ... OR ... *THUNK* zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

6:00 - 8:00 p.m.: Dinner! Yay! I don't want to think about cooking, let's just go get something somewhere. I feel like going out, being sociable, having fun! :) Let's play! (Drezzer)

8:00 - 11:00 p.m.: Gotta work! Gotta work! Gotta work! Want to write, draw, think, plan, do! Stop distracting me with stupid stuff like bills, dishes, the house burning down -- I want to WORK! (Tiffany)

11:00 - 12:00 p.m.: I don't wanna go to bed, I'm just getting started! Besides, everybody's finally on-line! (Dover)

12:00 - 1:00 a.m.: Erf, it's getting late. But I don't WANNA go to bed! (Tiffany)

after 1:00 a.m.: I've stayed up too late. My mood crashes and burns. I'm exhausted and holding back tears about everything that bugs me. Hate myself and feel like crap. Guess I better go to bed, but what's the point? Waaaaaaaah! (Conrad)

*THUNK* zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

I'm not sure what, if any, good having made this observation will do me, since I'm too darn stubborn to go to bed late at night even though I know I should. But self-knowledge is always a good thing, I figure.

Hmm ... it's almost 11:30, time to get hungry. *DING!* And there it is, right on time!
