03:52 am - 3:52 AM
Why is there never anyone around to talk to at 3:52 AM?

Or 3am.

Or 2am, for that matter.

I find this to be a serious drawback to civilized society, and am somewhat dissatisfied with the whole early-early-early-morning conversation situation.

That is all.

[Edited to add: Yes, I know, several of you have said "call anytime even if it's in the middle of the night," but I'm not sure I could make myself do that unless it were an emergency. :-)]

I believe I have id's on most of those, actually. AIM and Yahoo are the same as my LJ name, and MSN is my LJ name at hotmail.com I think. Not often logged into those, though.

I remember back in the day when I lived on the other side of the clock. While I appreciated the solitude for the most part, I also recall how lonely the world could feel in the wee small hours of the morning.

I'm going to bed a bit earlier these days, but I'm Eastern, and usually up until midnight or one. I turn my phone off when I'm done for the night, so feel free to call and see if I answer.

I think it's vice versa, actually. If you're East Coast, then my 3am is your 6am. If you're usually up until midnight, I imagine 6am probably isn't the best time to call. *lol* But thanks!

I think that you guys have it backwards. We are all on Eastern Standard Time and she is three hours behind us (Pacfic Standard Time). She needs to locate one of us that is an early riser since her 3:52 am equals our 6:52 am. Unfortunately that leaves me out because I am never up that early.

Ack, you are right, that is backwards.

Well, as it happens, her 3:52 is my 6:52, and I'm up by then.

So, offer still stands.

Dial-A-Conversation

Hmmm... A new business opportunity.

1-900 number + speech->text s/w + Touring capable AI + text->speech s/w = $$$

Though it might be cheaper to just outsource it to India.

Sorry! If I were properly- independently wealthy- like I Ought to be... I'd be able to stay up all night and sleep all day in my natural rhythm. THEN I could be up at those normal hours for folks to talk! :P

Yes, I am also quite dissatisfied with your non-independently-wealthy status.

I DEMAND that Megabucks (or the lottery or something) let you win IMMEDIATELY.

*taps foot*

I'm WAITING!

We are in the same time zone, right? ... Well, you oughta be getting sleep at that hour! I mean, those hours! Tch ... my days of staying up past 3AM are long gone at this point. (Not that I ever did anything with them besides read with a flashlight and watch late night horror movies starring Vincent Price.)

Now that the kids are being dropped off here in the early hours of the morning, I can't stay up that late anymore. I am waking UP at 5am by their knocking on the door. (I'm in Central) Otherwise I would always be up, since I too am a night owl and so is B.

If you're up really early in the morning, I am around though!
