    I dunno. I’ve heard a few stories that Baba Yaga is QUITE the people person. It’s more that “humanitarian” describes less her sense of philanthropy and more her diet.

  2. Robin Bobcat Says:

    Nonsense! Baba Yaga is totally a people person! She’s very clearly a humanitarian, and she frequently has people over for dinner.

  3. I mean, Baba Yaga is a people person in the sense that she thinks people are delicious…

    Ahh Joel, so like me about mornings. Granted I am not a real big coffee drinker, for me it is more “Give me space.”

    I feel like I relate a little too closely to Joel some days. Are you sure you haven’t spoken a few of my old D&D buddies?

    Get up on your chicken legs and head for the diner, then. Pay someone else to deal with your bad mood, Baba.

    Wouldn’t Mark already know Joel isn’t a morning person?

    I thought Baba Yaga was a people person. As in munch, munch.

    The solution for not being a morning person is to get up in the afternoon.

    Ozzi, Poul Anderson had one of his characters (Dominic Flandry) say something like dawn is a wonderful way to end a day and a terrible way to start one.

    @Spoony Viking, while they may have been roommates for a bit, it is possible that they may not have directly interacted with each other often in the morning. Depending on their work schedules, it is possible they may not have interacted with each other much in the mornings. I know when I worked graveyard shift, I’d be going to bed when my roommates were sleeping or maybe a bit after they woke.

    @Gene W., spoken like a true night owl…

  14. The Other Mike Says:

    I believe in “Early to bed, early to rise.” At least, I’ve believed in it ever since the loophole was pointed out to me.

    @Drraagh
    Hm, that makes sense!

    NightOwler: The obligatory response is, of course, “Who? Me?”

    The Other Mike: Ben Franklin was the originator of that quote. Given that he wrote an essay on selecting a mistress, one can understand him wanting to get to bed early.

    @Gene Wirenchko: Now that you mentioned the essay of Ben Franklin on how to select a mistress – his quote “early to bed, early to rise” begins to get a different view… (nudge, nudge… 😉 )

  18. Old Brit Says:

    Gene W: That information suggests a whole new meaning to “Early to rise”.
