"I was always amazed at how different the day seemed before six o'clock in the morning, before anyone had had a chance to take it out of the wrapping and fuck it up. It was a different world. An empty one, I sometimes thought. All those offices and shops, all vacant and unclaimed, as though you could actually ride out into the crisp predawn air and plant your flag in them and go 'Three cheers for me' and everyone else would wake up just that little bit late and eat their weet-bix and stumble bleary-eyed into the world to find you'd beaten them there and it was all yours now."
