Anyone else....

....drink coffee after 4 PM that doesn't fully kick in until midnight?

...catch themselves mumbling gibberish while driving, pretending to be speaking a nonexistent foreign language?

...feel like the Supernatural season finale, clearly written originally as a series finale, has the potential to make next season as disappointing as the extra season of Scrubs?

...think Happy Town never got a fair chance, starting in May at 10 PM on Wednesdays?

...think “they're just making it up as they go along!” is a silly criticism of writers, since that's their job description, at least as far as fiction is concerned?

...feel relief when most shows near their season or series finales, freeing up many hours over the Summer?

...make train whistle noises when driving over train tracks?

...wish Spring would pick one temperature(preferably moderate) and one weather condition(preferably clear and dry) and stick with it?

...think that commercial with the “800 pound gorilla in the room” riding in a convertible doesn't work at all, since the gorilla has to identify himself as such, and isn't actually in a room?

...wish all your problems could be solved with parkour?

...wish all your problems could be solved with Parkay?

...find news reports about terrorist activity more unsettling in terms of your geographic proximity to such activity?

....drink coffee after 4 PM that doesn't fully kick in until midnight, when it might also affect one's memory?

...think most of these are just me?

LOL. I'm gonna say most are just you.

Except for the parkour one :-) and the spring one.

I find news reports of terrorist activity disturbing more in what we don't know, and what they're trying to hide from us or distract us from...

Last night, they mentioned a few places on Long Island that were raided in connection to the attempted Times Square bombing. LI was too close for comfort. I think they said it was mostly financial connections, but still...it's like you say, what we don't know is what's scary.

It's like, you can't go through life with your head in the sand, but thinking about this stuff too much can make you paranoid. Every once in a while a report or incident like that causes a pendulum shift from the other extreme of feeling safe. Not that I could do anything about it either way. :/

You don't agree about the 800-pound gorilla? :) I just don't think the one with the convertible works. I probably look too closely at advertising given my own field, though.
