“It’s a lot of work, I’ll tell you that right now. First of all, I have to use the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration website every night to enter my exact latitude and longitude. I mean, that doesn’t sound so bad when I say it out loud, and the internet has totally helped. No more flipping through the Naval observatory sunrise book with my magnifying glass. But still, when you add that to the five minutes on each row of teeth, checking the locks on the windows and the door, unplugging all the appliances, pushups, situps, cleaning the floor from my exercise sweat, and shower, we’re talking a lengthy production. It’s dinner and it’s the Big Bang Theory (I love The Big Bang Theory) and then it’s a whole lot of hustle. I put my head on the pillow and I am done. Out. No dreams, just oblivion.”
