For a couple of reasons:
1) I have a paralyzing fear of the dark.
2) Hub is away tonight, so I'm all by my lonesome.
3) I just got done work and it was a slow night. This meant that my cohorts and I passed the time by looking at haunted dolls on ebay and watching footage from the show "Ghost Hunters." Freaky.
4) I watched "White Noise" last night.
Combine and stir. You'll get yourself one spooked-out Ms. V.
It's true that I'm normally awake at this hour because I'm nocturnal. However, there is absolutely no chance that I will even venture into my bedroom right now, much less consider trying to go to bed.
On the bright side, there's a particular individual at work who drives me insane. I thought I was the only one who was overly annoyed by her mere presence, but tonight I found out that there are others who agree with me. Good. I'm not super-picky. Well, I am, but not about her, I guess.
I also got a lot of knitting done before I went in to work tonight. Maybe, after 1 full year of working on it (that involved 1 frogging), I'll finally have my Berroco Softy poncho afterall!
Keeping the lights on,
