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)
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!
