The question this week is :
- Are you a morning, afternoon, evening or night time person? Has it changed over the years??
I have been addicted to Harlequin Romance novels since I was a gangly fourteen year old. I used to get so involved in the plot of a book that I wouldn’t be able to put it down, so I would stay up all night to finish reading it. My metabolism was a cross between a speeding bullet and the Energizer Bunny. Night after night, my mother would kiss me goodnight and in the silence of the wee hours of the morning, I would read my stash of happily ever after books and listen to cassette tapes.
My late night behavior wasn’t anything new…I have acted the same since I was two years old, sitting with my parents and watching Elvis Presley movies until 2:00 a.m. Those were such lovely nights. Mom and Dad sleeping like logs with me rocking in my little chair and watching Elvis until The End appeared on the screen. Then I would wake them both up and we would all go hop in the same bed with me in the middle.
Yes, they spoiled me, but I promise I’m not rotten.
When I was in my late twenties, I joined the Harlequin Romance book club. Once a month, my mailbox would have a stack of twelve new novels delivered and I would voraciously read to satisfy my desire for happy words describing people in love. I am after all a hopeless romantic.
The box of books would appear and that meant I would not be going to bed that night.
Now it’s 2010 and I’m a few years older. (cough, cough)
Things haven’t changed much when it comes to plopping my head on the pillow. It would even be reasonable to assume that I don’t even know the meaning of bedtime.
On any given evening, you can find me reading, blogging, surfing the internet, writing, cooking, cleaning, sewing, crocheting or crafting well past midnight and I might even watch the sun rise on Saturday morning.
I simply do not like wasting my time sleeping.
I don’t like it!
With my nose buried in a book
until about 3:00 a.m.,
(of course I’ve already read the last two pages)
I’m bad like that…
