    I'm flexible. I've worked every shift possible; most often four to midnight. Now I generally rise sixish, earlier in the summer.

    You're probably right, but I generally wear long, loose-fitting tops anyway, so it's all moot. If I were built like a model, I'd like pleats even more.

    As an airline-phobic introvert, I'd lean toward on-line chat. Out of town business was always a non-starter with me. Fortunately, I wasn't called on to do much of it.

    I have enough food and water. I don't really need heat--in a previous week-long outage, I just hunkered down in bed. I should check my batteries and such, I suppose.
