As a schoolboy in England, the sports rotation for PE classes included nature walks on Wimbledon Common, cricket, football, rugby, and rifle shooting. I learned how to shoot a rifle at age 11. I have not touched a firearm since. #saturdayff
My project manager bought assorted chili peppers at a market at lunch today. As the afternoon wore on he gave in to temptation and sampled a few. The first was a Padron; reasonably hot according to him. The second was a Christmas Bell; quite sweet apparently.
There seems to be quite a difference between insomnia - which I sometimes suffer through - and deliberately staying up through the night. Insomnia makes me tired but that's all.

From midnight through to maybe 04:00 or possibly even later I'm going to have to babysit a code deployment for a client. We have deployment personnel but the client has insisted on having a developer present in case of any problems. I've done most of the work so work insists that that means me. I was given 24 hours notice of this.
