I'm up right now. 4am. I'll probably pass out when the sun comes up or after. sleep through the day of course, and wake up when it's dark. I'm full nocturnal at the moment. . .

Thankfully I'm in the UK so the start time is a decent 10am. Having said that, I have to run the store for the weekend as everyone else capable is away at festivals.... Monday and Tuesday all day ftw ;-)

Alarm is currently set for 5AM, but I'm thinking I'll push it back to 4:45 so I have time to get coffee. That's assuming I am able to sleep in the first place. I have a feeling that when I'll be up (again) multiple times tonight checking the clock and give up sleeping as a lost cause by 4AM.

Tonight will be devoted to getting the kitchen clean so that the wreckage come Sunday evening will not be too horrific. And setting up the coffee pot for tomorrow morning.

My dog is ready for her job, which is to force me from the computer chair to take her for a walk.

Definitely waking up at 4AM (when EA starts for me) to play when the servers go live. I'm really excited. I've been so bored this week.

I normally wake up everyday at 4AM because of work and early access starts 5AM where I'm at. I'll go to sleep Friday like I normally do and be up fully awake for when it starts.

As I always do on Fridays, I came into work this morning at 2am in order to update the servers. As a result, I will be leaving early, probably around 10am, and will be going to bed earlier than I normally do. Since I live in the EST time zone (I live in New Albany, IN, across the river from Louisville, KY), that means Early Access starts at 5am for me. I can easily get in 8 1/2 hours of sleep before then, which I plan on doing. This time zone makes it easier for me to get up for the Early Access since I can get all my sleep in beforehand instead of afterwards. Anyone else in the EST time zone?

P.S. - For those who don't know about it, Indiana is one of only two states that I'm aware of (the other being Arizona, I believe) that is...'funny' about time zones. It's part EST and part CST, I believe. Very confusing at times, to be honest.

I've been getting up crazy hours last two days. 2:30am today. What Jack Reacher video, then went to SE and placed 4 tickets. Chat wasn't opened yet. Sigh. Going to do laundry to keep me busy, then going to the lake to swim.

I've been working late shifts this week to get things done without people around to ask me for things. I just got home and it's 4AM. I may just sleep until like 4PM tomorrow, go to work from 6PM-3AM and just stay up until Saturday night to reset my schedule to mornings. Wife wants to cruise over to Napa Valley and get trashed on Sunday anyway. Should work out wonderfully.

Going to get a Lasagna Bake prepped in the Crockpot to turn on at 7am. As long as I don't get called in tonight it'll be an early bedtime and up at 4:30am to chill with my FC mates. We actually had fun trying to get in the game on P4. Each screen was an accomplishment and everyone else would congratulate and curse you in the same breath for "progressing" At one point only the girls seemed to be making it in. We made the best out of a bad situation, and had fun.

I might try to go to bed early tonight so that I can get up early around the time servers open. This won't be too hard, because A: I'm 48 and going to bed early is becoming more common, and B: I'll be pretty tired after work because I get up so **** early anyway. Smiley: frown

I would pull an all nighter but 5:00 a.m. is when my brain starts shutting down.

Saturday is my only day to sleep in so I try to take advantage of it. My wife works every Saturday, so it's me and my two kids all day. I'll probably be logged in but how much I actually get to play is undetermined.

I will say this. I just hope for everyone, including SE, that there are very few issues when early access opens up.

I guess since I'm East Coast so it won't really be a crazy time. But alarm is at 4:45 am.

Gonna get up early, log in, and fire up my BBQ. My plan is to smoke a few pounds of pork shoulder throughout the day while getting my Eorzea on.


This... is a brilliant idea. I think I will do the same. Smoked food is THE BEST.

Gig tonight also but I'll be sober (17 years now) when I get home at 4:00 a.m. - but I still thought "smoking some pounds" meant a big BIG bag...

Going to bed at 10 tonight and getting up at 4:45am. Putting the coffee on and spamming the play button at 5, with fingers crossed that I can download the update and there's not congestion. I do have to work Saturday but not until 9:30 so thats a few hours of play at least.

I dunno. If you're like me, that's over in like 10 minutes. Then I'd be laying there wishing I was on FFXIV.

If your date's down with it, you could do both!

Thanks.
I go to see him every year at alpine valley and yea it is a great time. Something everyone should do once even if you are not a Buffett fan.
It almost more about the parking lot than the concert.

I have a freezer full of frozen pizzas, one of every bag of those flavored potato chips from Lays, and a huge can of powdered lemonade, so I'm good to go!

I'm gonna spend all weekend having fun and getting fat. Can't friggin wait!

Same goes for myself, Plan to take a long nap later this afternoon to be able to get right on the Game at 11pm. A freezer full of pizzas and drink is exactly the sort of thing I'm going to do. Aren't you glad that being in the same time zone gives us that advantage?

I can't remember the last time I was excited to wake up at 3am. The wife and I are hoping to go to bed early, but we'll see. There will be coffee... likely multiple pots.

Are there no adults in this thread? Getting up at 4:30 isn't crazy, it's what people do that want to work out before they go in to work Monday - Friday. I'll be getting up at the same time I have every day for the last year. It just happens that I'll be ignoring the gym, turning off the phone and becoming a hermit for the week-end is all.

Actually, not really that different after all.
