Nocturna

I get so frustrated with the diurnal schedule, with humans and their tendency to sleep during the most interesting part of the earth's rotation. It sucks that nothing is open during the night except a few places here and there. And who the hell has time to go to the bank on days they work, with banker's hours. If it was up to me, I'd wake up at 5 PM and go to bed at 7AM. Roughly. I do appreciate what the sun does for the earth, but the sun and I do not get along with each other. Sunlight gives me burns and makes me squint. Squinting gives me headaches. I am allergic to sunlight.

Here's my idea: we nightkind should make our own city, called Nocturna. We'd all be up at night and asleep during the day. We'd have one or two 24 hour places for the tourists. I can see it now, some poor sap driving somewhere else wanders into our city and has a WTF moment, like: "Huh? What happened here? It's noon and the place is EMPTY. I hope it's not contagious." Give those damned diurnals a taste of our feelings.

I would move to Nocturna and I'm sure my husband would as well.

Yes, I'm the same, very nocturnal
But we do need some sunlight, when you said you are allergic to sunlight, was that literal? Because I wonder how someone who has any level of sun allergy gets their vitamin d?
How's the place where you live?

Nah, it's mostly in my head. Though I do burn easily.

As to vitamin D... 1. I do get sunlight. 2. Even if I didn't, just have to buy vitamin d fortified milk and/or vitamin d capsules.

but isnt it right that even if you have milk or juice or capsule, only solar light activates the vitamin d?
i just got curious about really allergic people :)

Last night and the night before I went to bed at 6AM, around when the sun was rising. On Monday though I had to wake up at 10AM, but four hours of sleep isn't too bad. Today I got to wake up at 1PM. I should really try to go to bed earlier tomorrow so I can get eight or more hours.

I would totally move to Nocturna. That's a nice name for a city.

Holy crap! Four hours? I have to have at least six.

Thanks, I love the name too. I hope to make it real some day.

These are the times I'm grateful in a really superior way to live in a city with a nightlife and everything else you could ever want.

The Hazuki icon is freaking me out.

Cool.

Hazuki is freaking you out? (I had to think for a moment to realize what you meant by Hazuki, it's been a while since I've seen Moonphase, and I don't think I'd ever seen her name spelled out before.)
What's freaking you out about the icon?

OMG, I just realized how apropos it was to have that icon for this post. A vampire girl icon on a post about Nocturna. Totally on accident.

I know where Beaverton is, but not Tansabourne. Probably a bit too far for me. I had to go to Beaverton once. Wow, was that a long trip. All the way from 82nd street station to Beaverton, it was one long trip.
