This week’s Friday 5 is all about being tired. I’m an expert in that!
- What were the circumstances surrounding your last all-nighter?
Couldn’t sleep because I had a bad cold keeping me awake. Was just a few weeks ago.
- What’s your favorite stay-awake-and-alert food or drink?
Diet Coke (or Pepsi, I’m not choosy). Lots and lots of it.
- What are you most likely to be doing when you’re up in the late, late hours of the night?
Watching TV or movies, writing code, or playing World of Warcraft.
- In what way does your personality change when you are sleep-deprived?
I tend to make less sense (which is impressive), and I tend to be short with people.
- If you get home extremely tired and extremely hungry, which need are you most likely to satisfy first?
Hunger first; it’s hard to sleep when all you can think about is how hungry you are.
