I've been trying to go to bed early. Trying to break the pattern of sleep deprivation that always ensues when I'm in a play and every spare hour is spent sitting at my computer, flipping between crime message boards.
It may not be a virtual reality game, but it has its addictive side!
So I bid my laptop to sleep, and set it on a little table by my bed, and discovered something. A sleeping laptop has a blue blinking light. A very tiny blue blinking light, awfully bright at 3:30 AM.
It calls me. That tiny blinking light is like a neon bar sign outside my window.
It lights up my whole room.
Must. Turn. It. Off.
