Hope you’re holding up, Handman. I might be passing out early.

I picked up a night shift for Saturday night at work, so I’m still awake, trying to shift my clock a little to make sure I’m fully functional for tomorrow night. Er…tonight, I mean.

I remember when I was a young kid, when I didn’t have school the next day, I would stay up nights past 9:30 to midnight if I could, because back then — in the late '90s — one of the local stations played old episodes of The Simpsons at that time. After I watched The Simpsons, though, I’d quickly retire to bed, 'cause at that point, I’d be dead tired. As such, the time between 12:30 & 5:00 AM was largely a mystery to me; I often romanticized these 4.5 hours into a quasi-magical period where anything and everything could happen and did.

Fast forward to the last seventeen years. That mystical quality has vanished. The time between 12:30 & 5:00 AM’s just a chronal doldrums where only insomnia thrives.

I haven’t checked this thread in awhile, but I’m still up at the most ungodly hours.

Slow on a Sunday morning?

I work in a lab at a plastic factory doing quality control, and there’s only two production lines running tonight instead of the usual 4-5, so yep. Pretty slow.

If only I were doing something useful about now. Although I am watching Little Shop of Horros which is at least amusing.

Ooh, the black and white original or the musical? And if it’s the musical, which ending?

The original, which I have never seen before. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen the musical.

Neat, I’ve never seen the original. How is it?

You’ve obviously never seen any of Corman’s pre-Price films.

A lot of fun. The personality of the plant is great. Good quips. The remake potential jumps off the screen.
