Vampire mode

After a full week of working midnights, I'm pretty well adjusted to muting my phone and sleeping from 9am to 3pm.  I was jet lagged at first, and it really affected me more than I would have expected.  After a few days of waking up to answer my phone, I realized it was going to be important for me to turn the thing off completely when I need to be sleeping.  If you're calling me at noon, that's the equivalent of me calling you at 3am.  I check my voicemail at 4pm, which is breakfast time for me.  On Sundays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, I play hockey in the PM hours before work.  On Thursday I have a Project Management class.  Monday, Friday, and Saturday evening are the only times I'm really available for social pursuits.  If it wasn't for the DVR, I wouldn't watch any television.  Although, I'm bombarded by news and weather channels at work.  Regarding staying up all night, I'm learning what's open late at night, and in Overland Park, that's McDonald's, Price Chopper, QT, and IHOP.  In KC, being a night owl is a bit easier.  For the weekends, I found a hangout which is open til 5am.  It's been there since 1904.  The cover is $8 because it's the only place serving past 3am.  If I'm off on a weeknight, basically the casinos are open, or I can go sit at home and read, surf the web, or watch TV.
