Larks and Owls

Cheryl passes on to me an article explaining why some of us are just naturally not morning people. There's a test at the end of it. I scored a 10 or 11 depending on how I waffled on one of the answers, which makes me a definite "owl," while those people who complain that SF conventions don't have 8 AM panels are in the "lark" category. I am so grateful that my employer gives us sufficient flexibility in our work hours that I have been of late been able to work hours closer to when my body wants to work them rather than a traditional 8-to-5 period.

If I could do things my own way without concern for the grief I'd get from SMOFdom, I'd schedule the WSFS Business Meeting for Noon instead of 10 AM. I tried this once, in 1993, when I was relatively young and foolish. It didn't get as much trouble as the year a Worldcon scheduled it for 8:30 AM -- the Business Meeting actually passed a rule that time regulating when the meeting could be held -- but it was close.
