living in the city of course means that no matter when you are up someone else is too. not necessarily in your apartment, but downstairs maybe or across the alley someone will still be making noise as though it were noon. that's one reason I like it even though it's not like I would want to talk to any of these people who are still up--just knowing they are up makes life a little less desolate.
I was going to say more but if I don't rein it in I won't get to bed before dark. good night!
