So beginning Jan. 14, I will be working the graveyard shift! I knew I’d likely (certainly?) have to do a stint on overnights when I took this gig at the LUNO (Large Unnamed News Organization). I will be working my first shift 9 p.m. – 7 a.m. Monday to Thursday. It’ll be four, 10 hour shifts with three days off a week.

And yes I did hear about the cancer risk, so you don’t have to tell me about it! This won’t be a permanent thing — nine months to a year, hopefully, something most people in my job have to do.

Professionally, I think it may be a good thing for me. Better stories. Socially and biologically, I am dreading it a bit. But my co-workers tell me it isn’t so bad and I may really like it.

It does open up my days for more exercise. In fact, Jan. 14 is 16 weeks from the start of the NJ Marathon. So we’ll see.
