Eep. 8am? Eep. In the UK, while there are variations depending on area and
so on, your standard office job is 9am to 5pm, and the standard office work
week is 35 hours plus 1 unpaid hour for lunch. But YMMV: my first job was a
37.5 hour work-week, 9am to 5:30pm, and so is my current job. But I've never
worked for a company that *expected* you to start at 8am. Eep.

Oh, I 'got' it. Sigh. I'll have chocolate+walnut, please. I just hate
getting up early.
