I blame Paul

...though I certainly can't blame him for the results.



You're the time of day right around sunrise, when the sky is still a pale bluish gray. The streets are empty, and the grass and leaves are a little bit sparkly with dew. You are the sound of a few chirpy birds outside the window. You are quiet, peaceful, and contemplative. If you move slowly, it's not because you're lazy – it's because you know there's no reason to rush. You move like a relaxed cat, pausing for deep stretches that make your muscles feel alive. You are long sips of tea or coffee (out of a mug that's held with both hands) that slowly warm your insides just as the sun is brightening the sky.

The description's accurate; I am "quiet, peaceful, and contemplative" in my natural (non-student) state. The time? Ouch. I'm usually awake by then--but far from social, at that hour.

It's 12:30 now. Off to lunch!

Oh wow - I'm probably 1:30 am. That's sadly when I'm at my best. Yikes!!

I have an award for you on my blog. :)

The description is totally you, but no one should be awake at that hour (but I usually am too)

Jane R said...

Geez, I am 6:49 also.

And I am rarely awake at that hour, though I wish I were.

That makes 4 of us 6:49'ers so far! (Just don't call me at that hour, since even God doesn't get up before 7!)

That is what I got also but I never posted it!!

Grandmère Mimi said...

I'm the exact same as you, Kirstin - and apparently many others.

Something ain't right. I am not a morning person. All I want in the morning is my breakfast, my tea, and my newspaper for a good period of time.

Well, I'm breaking the mold here:
You are 10:02 a.m.
You are breakfasty, like a pile of pancakes on a Sunday morning that have just the right amount of syrup, so every bite is sweet perfection and not a soppy mess. You are a glass of orange juice that's cool, refreshing, and not overly pulpy. You are the time of day that's just right for turning the pages of a newspaper, flipping through channels, or clicking around online to get a sense of how the world changed during the night. You don't want to stumble sleepily through life, so you make a real effort to wake your brain up and get it thinking. You feel inspired to accomplish things (whether it's checking something off your to-do list or changing the world), but there's plenty of time for making things happen later in the day. First, pancakes.
