The nocturnal workers' thread

User: missspacey - 25 July 2008 00:11

I'll be joining you - I'm in for an all-nighter.

User: Walminskipeasucker - 25 July 2008 00:47

Good morning, misspacey. Hope you have a productive all-nighter - there'll be fewer distractions anyway. Like me, just keep telling yourself: it'll all be worth-it in the end.

writing about john locke at 01:07 is a little surreal. Hope it makes sense in the morning.

good luck ya'll

24 July 2008 23:23 Choo choo! All aboard the nocturnal workers' express! Who'll be joining me tonight as I travel along the route of late night, lonely work?

User: Lara - 26 July 2008 03:46

i'm joining in late on this noctornal thread, i haven't done anything all day, so i figured i will do *something* before heading off to bed.

User: chrisrolinski - 28 July 2008 20:08

Anybody else up tonight?!

I am aim to have 1,000 words done by 00:00

User: tsipat - 28 July 2008 20:18

Am certainly up tonite, just couldn't deliver this afternoon as the heat got the better of me!

User: Walminskipeasucker - 28 July 2008 22:01

I'm up tonight too implementing a hastily devised work productivity rescue mission: Operation Night Owl. The heat is awful for me: a small room, a large window that lets in a lot of sunlight, poor ventilation and my computer and monitor giving lots of warmth. Days like this make me feel so grotty that it's difficult for me to concentrate. Tomorrow, I'm going to apply my advanced postgraduate problem solving skills by buying a load of ice pops! Tonight, I'll just try to do something productive, but I can't open my bloody window because of the all the damn moths

User: Cakegirl - 28 July 2008 22:05

What's a myth?
A female moth...

User: Cakegirl - 28 July 2008 22:07

Late night working is such fun!
I like to know I'm not the only owl around. However, tomorrow I have to function by "normal" time limits, so shouldn't stay up too late. Need to do some writing though.

Good luck everyone!

User: chrisrolinski - 29 July 2008 00:25

I would kill for a some Swedish Glace soy ice cream right now. So humid and sticky. Kill me!

My laptop seems to be overheating too, so not exacttly helping the situation.

User: tsipat - 29 July 2008 00:27

Just checking who is still working...I am up, still at it...Walminskipeasucker so sorry for the heat you are having to endure...I have two windows wide open and it certainly makes a difference. Chrisrolinski, how is the word count going?

User: tsipat - 29 July 2008 00:30

chrisrolinski I am with you there... it's unbearable, mind you i have two windows open...

User: pamw - 29 July 2008 00:50

I'm in a room where the radiator comes on when the water is heating up, so although I have a window open, it has been stifling. It's nice and cool now though. I'm trying to finish a chapter to send to my supervisor tomorrow. My deadline for my review panel isn't for two weeks but the selfish woman is going on holiday on thursday so I have to get it to her before then for feedback.
