it is after 6am and i should be in bed.
bulbgirl went to bed at a reasonable time.
lately bulbboy's sleeping pattern has been getting worse.

i know when i should go to bed. my body tells me it wants
to go to bed. there are just so many things to do.

most people tend to go to sleep when it gets dark.
bulbboy goes to sleep when it gets light i see some daylight each day but not much.

flashlights work better at night.

"where are all your bulbs?"

bulbboy is asked this question a lot
you might have guessed by now that bulbboy
works in a lighting shop.

next time i'm asked this, i can answer:


where 'mr electric' pulls light bulbs out of his mouth.
don't try this at home.

it was very foggy last night.

this did not deter many car drivers from driving too fast.
what is too fast? a taxi driver (who should know the road
like the back of his hand) missing a turn, and sharply
putting on the brakes, screeching to a loud stop,
and then reversing to correct his direction.

that's what i would call too fast.

luckily for me, a blue LED flashlight was attached to my
keychain. pressed in short bursts, it would give the impression
of a cop car some distance away. upon hearing a vehicle approach,
a few squeezes of the small torch was enough to let them know
that there was somebody (or something in the distance) and they
slowed down.
Even during daylight hours, the mere presence of
a panda car usually encourages drivers to slow down and be more
watchful, even if they weren't over the speed limit.

it is an offence to impersonate a police officer; i wonder if it is an
offence to impersonate a police car?

WARNING: bulbboy in no way encourages the shining of lights at driver
in case of distraction and subsequent death.
