    Did you doze off onto the caps lock?

    Biking keeps me awake. It's when I'm driving home that I sometimes need to pull into a layby and doze for 10 or 15 minutes.

    Luxury.

    I get to work and have to stand all day for a 9 hour shift behind a counter, being interrupted by idiots. And customers too.

    I also get that feeling about 2/3rds of the way through a 12 hour shift after a 10 mile ride in. Soon wake up on the way home though.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Saw a sign on a restaurant that said Breakfast, any time -- so I ordered French Toast in the Renaissance.

  • Interesting thread, because this week I heard snoring from a cubical in the Gents at work. In 30 years of working I've seen people fall asleep at their desks, in meetings, in the car at lunch time but never before on the WC !!!

    First time for everything I guess :)

  • I miss my old lab job. A quick kip is never going to happen for a chef. Or if it does, it'll be slapsticktastic.
  • I usually eat my lunch beside my desk in the work ... and when I've been cycling I have been known to doze off during my lunch hour for about 15-30 minutes.

    I generally feel much more awake all day and need less sleep when I'm cycling than when I'm not......go figure.
