Icon7 Morning Noon or Night?


which do you prefer and why?


I can't make my mind up but I have a feeling a bit of everything but nightime is pretty special because of parties and so is a bit more sparklier then the two others.
Still.
I like all haha.

I have a mix between Morning and night. I especially love dark mornings in winter, and dark nights in winter. I just love the chill in the air, that wintry feeling. My school's in town, so walking home in the dark, with all the Christmas lights shining around you is just AWESOME.

I'm a night-owl, I'm often up late, and I'll rarely be awake before one or two in the afternoon. Unemployment HO!

Golden summer mornings, after light rain, are great, but always over far too quickly... and the following day is usually unpleasantly hot.

Not a fan of afternoons really. Though, that's typically my cue to head outside and do some work or go for a walk or something, so I guess they're not all that bad.

But the winner is night.
Being at home, networking games at midnight is all fun-&-games (pun intended) but there's nothing like late night shopping at Surfers Paradise. It's like another world.
Tops the nostalgia charts for sure.

Morning. I'm alone (pretty much) and I can write.

I would choose the morning, because thats when I wake up and atleast know I am alive.


P.S. Cinnamon Life Cereal makes the morning twice as good.

Here: Smile!

All right, not exactly smile cereal, specifically, but . . .

Edit: Wait! What about this?? Grins & Smiles & Giggles & Laughs

I knew I saw some kind of smiley-face cereal, once upon a time!

Or how about a plate of Smiley Fries?

I love a full moon to sit on the door step with something alcoholic and watch it is a moment of sheer joy and peace. (Except at 3am when the bakery in front of the house comes to life but the smells are wonderful even if their choice of radio isn't). It prepares my mind to sleep well. I sit on the doorstep every night after a really hot bath before bed. I have a certain fondness for the goddesses attached to the moon so it can be a profound religious experience as well.

Also dawn or very early morning when the sky is red and again sat on door step but with a hot water and lemon - it prepares for me for the day and stays with me. (I miss it this time of year when it is well still black until gone 8). If I sit on the doorstep in my dressing gown at dawn right now I get sprung by the lady next door, the gent next door/upstairs and the lovely old lady upstairs.

Wow you are really into nature and outdoors at 3 am I am fast asleep. How do you stay up so late and up so early?
Tell more about the goddesses of the moon. I never knew there was any.
Oh Anya what do you mean by ''You got sprung by the lady next door''?
Sorry I do not understandt the expression,

Sorry I do not understandt the expression,
| don't often stay up that late but sometimes in the summer in the North of Scotland dark doesn't happen until very late - I do stay up on the solstices (Summer and Winter, and sometimes for the equinoxes in Autumn and Winter). For full moon then midnight is the most 'magical' time. Early morning is beautiful it is when the wildlife is still in the most urban of gardens and is worth being up for. Plus I have two early bird children who think lie-ins are for wimps and that 7 am is a long lie-in. If they sleep longer than that they are ill. Rest is as important to recharging as sleep and a few hours good quality sleep are better for recharging than many hours of poor sleep.

Lots of cultures have moon goddesses or gods - the most famous is the Roman Goddess Luna who in Greek culture is Hecate/Artemis/Selene. Selene is the goddess of the tides, months, mental illness, chilbirth, nursing, the night etc

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...n_in_mythology - here is a list for some others.

"Sprung" just means caught - they used to walk past my front door at just the wrong moment lol - I just get dressed now and it gives me an adult conversation before my day begins.

Gee was/is there a prize?
If so I can think of worst prize to give you but I think I'll leave it there.
I hope you realise that by making a comment such as this you have actually commented on everyone else's who has posted in this thread including you.

If I get a lie-in,I love the morning (rare)

If I get to lay in my bed with the afternoon sun streaming through the window onto me, I love noon (rare)

If I get to stay up really late, undisturbed or free of worrying about me disturbing others, I love night (rare)

Night. the hours between 11pm and about 5am have always been party hours. 5am to lunchtime sleep, wake, curse hangover, swear never to do it again, afternoon/evening recover, get ready for the next night time.

Night owl here; I used to get yelled at when I was a kid for reading books under the covers until the wee hours of the morning, when I was supposed to be sleeping. Going to bed at midnight is early for me and in the summer, I get to bed about the time the sun comes up. I've gotten some gorgeous pictures of sunrises that way.

Of course one is dependent on the other so it would only be fair to have a bit of everything.

Any time that I can get Oreo cookies. Morning + Oreo = my time. Afternoon + Oreo = my time. Evening + Oreo = my time.

Truthfully though, I'm a morning person. My brain doesn't work correctly so shortly after waking up is when I'm must lucid. Honestly, the doctors say the shaking, memory loss and vision problems are due to my Major Depressive Disorder. I sure hope so and the Major Depressive Disorder isn't just another symptom of something worse.
