Imagine the (ultra cute) Marissa Tomei in My Cousin Vinny stomping on a hard wood porch and screaming (in all her nasal glory) “My biological clock is ticking like this!” BAM BAM BAMM.

Except remember the world we live in is different, for we are not cute.

According to my clock, I am physically, intellectually and emotionally awake between some 4 and 10 in the morning. This was all very good for a bulk of my life as I used to wake at 3-4 AM, do whatever I needed to do before 8 or so, head off to school/college to sleep (intellectually) and return home eventually to chill out some more before I sleep (for real).

Like I said, all of this was fine and dandy. Except, now I wake at fishing 8-10 AM after not going to sleep until 1-2 AM at least (this is when I do sleep of course). But magically, the clock (through changing time zones, age, diet, intellectual activity, emotional damage, change in general physical activity patterns etc) still sits at the same extreme frame. 4-10 in the morning. What this means in real world units is that I effectively have between 8 and 10 in the morning (if I’m lucky) to get what I need done for the day done, done.

Yes, the days are just packed.
(Arguably, the coolest 400 bucks or whatever I spent on a comic, ever.)

    Dude. I woke at 3-4, always. I never “did” anything. Was awake.

    Caught the sunrise at the beach in the morning. That sort of “doing”.
