A friend who works nights posted about how desolate the 1-5am hours are on her nights off. This made me think about how much better those hours are now than they were when I was young. I remember when not only wasn't there an internet with people at all hours, the TV stations would all sign off by 1am or 2am. I remember how depressing it was when the last station would sign off when I was stuck awake. That's a large part of my attachment to cable (satellite) TV--24 hour availability. I didn't have cable until well into my 20s.
