My mother and I had a fight yesterday. I set my alarm for five o'clock this morning. A lot happened between those two sentences, but I'm just here to tell you that the house is really nice and quiet at 5 a.m. I'm still not a morning person, but dang was it nice to be able to move about without tripping over family members and accidentally interrupting someone's TV show or saying something embarrassing while my mom is on the phone with my grandma. When I'm not employed at a nine-to-five gig, I tend to get up at 3 p.m. and stay up until dawn. I hadn't realized how much I missed having the house to myself and how quiet the whole world seems.
Now, I really woke up this early to get some projects done before work today (projects that sadly do not involve writing love letters to Elijah Wood), but it would have been a crime to waste another pretty sunrise. So voila!
No lines this time, either. (Sorry, I don't secretly live next to the world's largest LCD screen.)
