Question 20: All-Nighters

Blogathon 2006

Sprite asks: What was the best all-nighter you ever pulled?

Quite possibly this one. But in the past... hmm. There actually haven't been that many. I've done a few at the bookstore, which are mostly fun, except for the part when you realize that you've been banging CDs into wood and metal dekeepering devices for several hours and therefore your hands probably won't stop throbbing for several days.

The most fun, though, was probably the one at the end of my sophomore year of college, when I stayed up all night proofreading the campus literary magazine. It was a mostly fun group of people, and I felt really useful, and like my incredibly nerdy copyediting skills were actually making me popular for once.

Oh, and incidentally, the editor of the magazine at that time was Eli Pariser, of MoveOn.org fame. I also proofread Eli's BA thesis that spring.

I'm afraid that I can't discuss the best all-nighter I ever pulled. ^__^
