The early bird catches the worm...eh, whatever

Well, kids, grandma (me) went to bed at 7:45 last night and she got up at 5:45 this morning. I know that I am supposed to feel refreshed and all that after a long night of rest, but I just want to hop back in bed and sleep some more. I know that it makes sense to stay up and be productive, but why? I have never been all that keen on that 'early to bed and early to rise' mentality. Generally, my attitude has been 'late to bed and get up when I have to'. I don't have to be at work until noon so I really don't have to be up right now. Hmmm. Waking up early does bring me to another topic though and that is my neighbor.

I haven't dicussed him yet in the blog, but he has one strange habit that I have noticed in almost a year of living here. HE NEVER GOES TO BED or HE'S AFRAID OF THE DARK. His light is ALWAYS on. I have been up at all hours while living here. Sometimes I have to get up in the middle of the night for work, or I will be getting in really late from partying, or going to bed really late for some other reason, or getting up fairly early like today...and the light is always on. Jenny proposed that he could be afraid of the dark and that is the reason the light is always on. I don't know about this. He is a grown man with a steady job (a professor at a local conservative college - not the one I went to, the other one) and he seems normal when I have spoken to him. Not like some sleep deprived scaredy-cat. I'm not sure about this one. Anyone have any theories? Vampire, perhaps?

Scared of the dark sounds right to me...I leave the kitchen light on all night!
