WWTKW: The Mean Streets of Quyon, and My Beautiful Sleeping Babies

It’s time for your regularly-scheduled Hump Day Q&A, hosted by Mamarazzi and Queso.

WWTKbutton-1

This week’s questions are:

{1} If you had an extra hour to do ANYTHING for yourself each day what would you do?
{2} Are you a morning person or a night owl?
{3} How much sleep do you get on an average night?
{4} When do you find the time to blog/surf the ol' interweb?
{5} What is the ONE thing you're never too busy for?

Here are my answers:

{1} If you had an extra hour to do ANYTHING for yourself each day what would you do?  Lately?  This is going to sound crazy, coming from your resident “couch potato”, but I wish these days there was more daylight to get a walk in in the evenings.  The weather is cooler and perfect for going for walks, but by the time I get home from work, and make & eat supper, it’s already getting dark out.  I’d eat later, except I have this “no food after 7 PM” restriction on myself right now.  And sure, a nighttime walk sounds lovely, except the streets of Q-Town are sketchy these days, and I’m too afraid to walk alone in the dark.  Somehow, the joy of the walk is killed by the fact that I’m clenching my keys in my pocket, preparing to use them to gouge someone’s eyes out if I come under attack.  (And no, I’ve never been attacked by anyone before.  But almost by a dog, once.  It has raised the paranoia.)

scary street See?  Spooky, right?

…Okay so my town does not look like this.  But I have a wild imagination.

{2} Are you a morning person or a night owl?  I don’t really know if I’m either anymore.  I don’t like to sleep in all day, but I hate the sound of the alarm clock going off.  I’m generally not a pleasant person until at least 8 AM.  I guess I’m more of a night owl, but in recent months, I can barely stay up late even on weekends.  I’m falling asleep on the couch anytime after 10 PM.  How sad is that?!?!?

{3} How much sleep do you get on an average night?  I need a good 8 hours or else I’m crusty.  I think I’ve mentioned before that my only concern about having children someday is the fact that they’re unpredictable when it comes to sleeping.  I’m going to need some of those magic children who sleep 12 hours a night.  If not, I’m hoping they’re really really cute to make up for it. ;)

{4} When do you find the time to blog/surf the ol' interweb?  If I’m not too busy at work, I usually check in as soon as I get to my desk (email, Facebook, read my favourite blogs); and then check at what I consider “morning & afternoon breaktimes”, and at lunch time.  I don’t have the Internet at my place (because, clearly, I live in the Dark Ages there), so I often go to my parents’ in the evening, and if nothing else is going on, I might do a little surfing and/or blogging there.

{5} What is the ONE thing you're never too busy for?   My family & friends.  Sure, I might be too busy to do something with them (usually because I’m doing something else with other family or friends!) – but if any of them needed me, I’d be there.  I would drop anything for them.

Family and Friends

Happy Wednesday, everyone! :)

THe good thing about babies is that they are really cute. It sort of makes up for the not sleeping, sort of.

God made babies cute to their parents so we don't eat our young or kill them!

Mamarazzi said...

I think God made babies cute so we would put up with the non sleeping at nights and all the crying. Their cuteness makes up for all that!
