I used to lay in front of the nighttime television set and then I would have to go for a joyride in the darkened country. Sometimes I did this in the winter with snow on the ground. Sometimes I would do this in the summer with the nice warm air breathing into my open window.
I think that I enjoyed being alone more than anything. Not because I didn't like being around others - more because I liked being able to get lost in my thoughts. Driving through the blackened night was always relaxing. My mind would wander and then maybe I would find myself at the twenty four hour grocery or at the donut shop.
Then I would go home and watch some recorded entertainment. I've never really enjoyed checking out what is on. I have always enjoyed exerting control over what I watch.
