Here are some things I've learned by waking up and working from 2:00am-6:00am:
It's really dark outside
The cats are still asleep
the garbage man comes *really* early.
No one is logged-on to Instant Messenger
junk mail never sleeps
I get some pretty good work done.
sfgate.com doesn't put new stories up in the middle of the night
it's too bad I don't drink coffee
i come up with more reasons to blog
