Creature of the night no more. - Words in the Heroes' Tongue

Creature of the night no more.
On Tuesday night several momentous things happened. Manchester United were beaten 4-0 by Kate Bush in the Capital One Cup, MK Dons gave a triumphant and critically-acclaimed concert at the Hammersmith Apollo (I may be slightly wrong on the details, I was a little distracted), and I retired.

It was my last night at work ever. From now on I can concentrate on writing. And I can sleep at night and be awake in that mysterious, strangely bright, period known as ‘daytime’. What was that strange glowing object I saw in the sky?

Wow, congratulations on the retirement, hopefully you will adjust to this strange daylight world fairly soon!

And yeah, Kate Bush beating Man U 4-0. That's a result I can get behind :)

Congrats! Welcome to the leisured side of the Force! Now you can be really smug about all things work related - "not my problem any more" is one of my favorite phrases.

Many congratulations!

Strangely enough my husband is about to do the same thing. If you feel as happy as he does you must be ecstatic :)

Wow. Just be careful with sunlight. You know what it does to some evil, black-clad creatures of the night!

Congratulations on your retirement. Welcome to what passes for normality.

Hey, Spike and I are in mourning together with regard to the ongoing decline on MU!! We both blame Alex Ferguson - he has obviously mojo'ed the players so they can't play now he isn't there.

But yay! you have retired and can hang out in the daytime with the wombat when she retires too. * is happy for you*

Congratulations - enjoy your retirement, the daylight and your writing.

I don't know where I'd rather have been on Tuesday - the Hammersmith Apollo or the MK Dons stadium (though I'm surprised we didn't hear the cheering from here!).
