Hi All,

Hope your all well, recently joined the Coral Crew and its my first night shift since.

So I thought I start a post to see who else is up and about.

Try and keep this for the night owls to keep us going. Post for a chat, a photo of what your up to or just some general randomness.

Now this might go down like a lead balloon and everyone might be tucked up in bed, but here goes, why not start with an easy riddle:

What 8 letter word can have a letter taken away and it still makes a word. Take another letter away and it still makes a word. Keep on doing that until you have one letter left. What is the word?

No cheating

Looking like we need some international expansion - if only to help keep @viderz company during nights! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I’m one of these people who works best at night (I learnt that I worked best during the night during my MSc) So I still have an odd sleeping pattern(I used to work in the library till about 12:00 then go out) :joy:. Which will continue when I start my further study :sweat_smile:
Only issue is getting up at 9 can be fun :joy::joy:

Just finished watching series one of Pose on iPlayer

Recommended. Spent the first twenty minutes of episode one not having the faintest idea what was going on, but eight hours on it is life

Really not a morning person - feel more alive as the day goes on

Alas morning people won as they got up earlier, so I have to drag myself up in the mornings!

I’m a night person, but unfortunately I normally have to get up by 7 so that doesn’t work out too well

Just been sorting out the files on my computer and debating if I should get an hours work done or go to bed

Being run off my feet, the joys of having to work a Saturday night, can’t wait to climb in bed. Think a stop at McDs is in order for some caffeine

Then just as you sit down at 2am with your Crunchy McFlurry & Google “McDonald’s touch-screens”…

And trust me, the tabloid versions of this story were even more graphic :weary:
