Okay, so it’s 7:15 am where my body (and blog) lives. I’ve been up for a good hour and a half — because that’s what time my body gets up — and have been trying to decide whether or no to actually wake up yet, because where my family lives, it’s only 6:15. That’s right: I’ve been up since 4:45 am local time. After making fun of the notion of getting up for the holiday sales that start at 5:00 am, I totally was up in time for the holiday sales that start at 5:00 am. Of course I didn’t go to any of them: there isn’t anything I want badly enough to make negotiating all of the madness worthwhile. It just seems a little pointless to be up this early (while the rest of my family is still asleep, mind you) with nothing specific to do.

(This will also be a liability this evening when my morning-person body wants to go to bed before 9:00 pm its time. That’ll be 7:45 or so local time. Hmm.)
