So the window in my dorm room gives me a scenic view of the parking lot. Yes, it kind of sucks, but I got used to it last semester. It is possible to get used to waking up at 3:00 AM with headlights in the face.

But now there's a new annoyance. One of the lights in the parking lot has gone dodgy, so it's blinking on and off at irregular intervals.

It's a very bright light. And it is directly outside my window.

Imagine, if you will, attempting to sleep under a page full of slow-motion blinky text and you will understand why this is annoying to me.

I've been there.

Our neighbor has a "security" light that does just that, except it's motion activated, which means, that any time it's windy, the light turns on randomly. We got a light-blocking shade (I think there's actually aluminum foil inside) and finally can sleep without "the beacon" disturbing us.

Yeah, that's what blinds are for.

I have blinds and I have them closed, they just happen to really suck...

You don't understand - the original blinds were just fine for "ambient" nighttime light. Until their security light, which was pointed DIRECTLY AT MY WINDOW, turned on.

Sleep with a blindfold. I'm not kidding.

I have one of those motion-activated porchlights right outside my window; I'm not sure what sorts of motions keep setting it off every now and then, but it's bright as day.

If you have a cloth handkercheif, just fold it up and tie it around your head.
