Well, in a perfect world, it would be by a lovely and svelte lady, 
missing her husband and seeking to drag me off to connubial bliss (we'll 
assume for propriety's sake that the husband would be me), but in my sad 
and lonely condition, it's normally I who finds myself late at night, 
feverishly optimising ;) :) .

All a man really needs to be happy is work, and a woman to drag him away 
from it, or so I'm told,
