    It's really neat though, how it's almost like a dream world at night, with absolutely nobody around and you're invisible and silent, ghostlike.

    It's also cool to walk around a bit before dawn, when even less people are around.
    I'd go bare foot, but you can't see if theres glass or not...

    On the pavement you can, if there's streetlights and you're observant. On the grass there's generally not glass, although that's a bit chancy I guess. Also, if you walk lightly and carefully enough, you usually can pull your foot back without putting weight on it, so you won't be cut. I never have been, anyway.

    Why run barefoot? Do you do that to callus your feet up or something? I suppose if you do it enough, then walking on glass wouldn't be as severe.

    No, it's so you can feel the ground under you

    It adds a new dimension to the experience.

    Also, it allows you to walk silently (other than clothes rustling, anyway), which I like.

    That walking at night thing actually sounds really appealing. I should do it sometime.

    The street I live on is busy (and well-lit) enough that it's not creepy walking down it at night, and also the quiet of the night is such a nice change. Plus the scenery is beautiful.

    Now I don't know why I haven't tried it before.

    I get the urge to fix things when I see them broken at times.. Like Friday I was in a meeting and the the arm on the chair I was sitting in was loose. I had to go get a screwdriver and fix it because it was driving me nuts.

    I don't want it, I just need it, to breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive.

    Never take life to seriously.. No one gets out alive in the end anyway.

    Hear, hear. I've gone (almost) totally paperless now, and it's a HUGE relief. I used to forget, lose the paper bill, write the check and stamp the envelope only to forget to actually mail it, etc. Now I've got reminders on Google Calendar that come to my gmail inbox with a BILLS flag already attached, and e-bills for as many of my payees as possible.

    Yep! The whole snail mail way of paying bills was cumbersome and painful for me for some reason. (Too many steps, I think)

    I do this too! I guess I did it often when I was younger because my mother still talks about how she'd hear me randomly running up the stairs super fast.
