    I am suprised that Melodie is still with me! I am a M*A*S*H nut. Since they came out with the series on DVD a year ago, I have bought every one. I watch two episodes each night then listen to talk radio (that puts me out). It's my unwind time. What are you a creature of habit of?

    depending on how the state im coming home in it might just be trying my hardest to get my clothes off. Or i pop some family guy dvds and some other movies into the DVD player and sit there and watch them till the sleeping pills kick in.

    Yea I try and avoid committee calls whenever possible...but they always seem to catch me :)

    Apart from that, every night around 11:30 I shut everything down, get cozy in my bed, and do nothing but listen to classical music. I always have music in the background but I hardly ever get to completely concentrate on just listening to it. So every night I usually put a new CD in and just relax for a while. Its a great way to relieve stress after a long day --almost my way of meditating :)

    I sneak a peek at the g/f and then say sorry I didn't know you were changing. I think she can tell because I run all the way up stairs then tip toe to the door then swing it open! Hehehehe.

    I used to fall right asleep when the theme for Dharma and Greg would come on, now, sadly I watch the show, then infomercials and knock out when the sun comes up.

    10pm, lock doors
    11pm, check status of USP, make available if need be
    11:30 check doors to make sure locked
    12am Dharma
    12:30 and Greg
    12:45 neighbor fires up subwoofer
    1am toss
    2am turn
    2:30 repeat

    When the g/f is here, she usually give me an ultimatum, if I am not there (bed) by 11, I get the couch, she comes out at 1, we pop in twilight zone dvds, and we are out.

    Uhhh, walk through the front door, throw the briefcase towards the sofa and fall face first into chair. half on half off, wake up 2 hours later with back pain go upstairs {more pain} and fall face first into bed.
    Ahhhh, being in business for yourself really does get you the great perks. Wake up 3 hours later full of sweat smelling like beef {uncooked, spoiled beef, {due to sans shower}. Have a shower at 2 am because in 45 mins I have to be back "at work" and the g/f sneaks down stairs to a spare bedroom because I was crushing her in my sleep and she doesn't want to smell "that" anymore. Yeah, I live the life, don't I?

    Well Peters, If your g/f has to shove her head up clients asses and yell "looks nice in here!", then yes our jobs are similar. To actually answer your question, I'm in the media monitoring business. T.V, radio, newspapers, and mags. From all over my province {Nova Scotia}. Then there's the "feeder" system that supplies me with info from all over Canada. Reading all day while talking on the phone all day while returning emails and faxes all day. I'm up at 2:30am and usually down around 9:00pm. You know it's been a long day when the g/f isn't there and you wonder where she is... then it clicks... she left you 3 years ago!
    BTW to all you business owners out there,
    Is it too much to ask that you keep paper in your fax machines? So when I send you 5MB of print it actually goes through without redialing 500times!!! Then I get that stupid cover sheet saying "This weiner dog is out licking himself instead of taking the info he requested at 1:00am!!!"

    Peters don't get me started! I'll be here all night as it is. 11:01pm on a Sunday and in 5 hours I'll be in for a 14 or 15 hour day.
