What's the Glory, Morning Story

stormsearch's latest post demonstrates that she is a morning person. It made me remember an incident that proves that I'm really not.

Flashback to 2000, October. Start of my second year at uni. Second week of teaching. I, being me, have been playing video games and roleplaying on that there internet (over diallup, as we were in a rented place) until half seven in the morning.

Wednesday. Eight thirty a.m. Steve, on of my housemates, bangs on my door. He's shouting something. I pull on a dressing gown so he doesn't see my genitals (very important).

Me: "Wha?"
He: "D'you want a lift in to the networking tutorial?"
Me: "No. Sleeping."
He: "Fair dos."

I went back to bed but couldn't sleep, so I wrote Steve a note indicating my religious aversion to any time before eleven, and that while I appreciated the offer I had only been asleep for an hour, and was thus rather tired.

I went out for some fags around the time he would have got back, as I didn't want the embarrasment of confronting him. I had, after all, left the note in a place he couldn't miss it.

I stuck it to his door with a seven-inch kitchen knife.

No point doing things by halves.

Oh, it's not so much that I'm a morning person, as that I like not being pidgeonholed or patronised by politicians, and even more than that, when it comes to giving someone who has woken me unjustly a headache, I will pull out all the stops. He thought he was going to get an easy vote out of me, and instead he got a sore wrist and a litany of complaints, heh.

Although next time I may apply your kitchen knife theory, I do like it.

(I should also point out that I'd been woken two hours earlier for the electrician coming to fix my ancient fuses, so perhaps my brain was being a little more awake than usual.)

*giggle. snort. snicker.*

Steve had something of a talent for pounding on your door at inconvenient times...
