Winding Down

    Just curious what everyone else here does when they get home from work (assuming most of you are fellow deskers). As for me, right now I'm watching a re-run of Frasier and working through a sleeve of Ritz crackers. That's not my routine every night, but it's pretty close. I get home, grab a quick bite while watching some late-night re-runs, and read for a bit until I go to bed. Not the most exciting night, but it's what I do. Anyone do anything differently?

    Ha! The joke's on you. I don't have a girlfriend.
  4. Ha! Wonder why. :)

    I basically watch old sitcoms and type away on this site until I fall asleep in my La-Z-Boy every night. Sometimes I fall asleep on the floor, other times the couch. But that's generally my winding down period. It begins anywhere from 3 p.m. to midnight and usually wraps up around 3 a.m.

    Deadline is midnight. I watch The Daily Show until the first commercial break at work. I rush home and catch the end. Then Colbert. I usually eat a sandwich. Tonight I had a piece of cake (my wife makes great cake). I watch re-runs of Seinfeld from 1 a.m. to 2 a.m. and then move to the bedroom to fall asleep with Sports Center on.

    If the baby suddenly wakes and needs a change or a quick bottle, I do that too.

    I'm not a desker, but I often don't get home until midnight because I help with reading proofs/copy editing. I pretty much just sit here and watch TV and log on here. When I've got a good book I'm reading, I'll read some of it before I go to bed, which is usually between 3:30 and 5:30 a.m., but has been earlier the past few days.

    I forgot about that last part. Good catch, Xan.

    By the way, he's usually wearing some sort of hat in my fantasies.

    you? that's *me*! write_brained is my fantasy.
  11. Well, then, that's completely inaccurate. I'm strictly a hats off kind of guy.

    It's easier to spread my seed that way.
