Anybody else notice how DU traffic slows on Friday and Saturday nights?

Like some of these people have things to do, places to go, lives to live?

And here we sit in our subterranean caves chomping' on our Cheetos.

I can't imagine being anywhere else, nor would I want to be. Sigh.

1. Boy, is that ever true, my dear gateley!

I don't want to be anywhere else, either!

I have a perfectly lovely thread in the Lounge, and NO replies! Heck, hardly any views for that matter...

Nice to see you tonight, sweetie!

3. Nice to see you, Peggy! I'll go check out your lovely thread in the Lounge.

Lord knows I'm not busy doing anything else!

5. Staying up late is kinda my specialty

I think the max I've ever stayed up is 3 days straight. Yeah DU does get pretty lonely around this time though but, hey there's other things I can do while browsing DU as well like maybe modding a PC game, playing cards, or sometimes a game of Scrabble on my computer is nice too.

6. I have a full life. It's just online.

I'm sitting in a slum living room tastelessly appointed in a style I call "early cheap hotel." It would send an editor at House Beautiful into an early grave from apoplexy but it's comfortable enough.

9. Gosh, that makes me wonder, am I a loser?

For being here at midnight on a Friday night?

And if so, when, if ever does that end? I mean I'm over 35 now. As I teenager I used to sneak out and get high on these nights, in my twenties I partied hard, in my late twenties early thirties it was more like cocktail parties, but now everybody has kids, is exausted, and we've all long ago drifted apart. But is there still something I am supposed to be doing on Friday nights other than drinking beer and screwing around online? Will there always be something I'm supposed to be doing? I mean, when I am 80, in the nursing home with my wife asleep in the other bed, posting here, will I be a loser in comparison to the other 80 year old guy is out by the player piano trying to hook up with some old lady?

11. Everyone is keeping DU clear for the DUzy awards.

And speaking of the DUzy's, where the fuck are they?
