    Most definitely. I would guess my average bedtime is somewhere between 1-3am, though a little earlier of late as I've been working everyday in the morning. Can't wait for uni to start back....mmm 11am starts. :D

    I used to be pretty much completely nocturnal. I found it easier to work at night, undisturbed, and the folks you meet online during the small hours can be pretty interesting :D

    It's not a great way to live though... darkness is overrated ;) These days I keep a 'normal' clock, but it's hard to keep within 24 hours and even harder to get up in the morning.

    I could be. If I stay up I can feel myself starting to gain more energy. Since I have to get up at 5 am I go to bed at 10 pm or so. I hate mornings, and they never get easier.

    It's 2 am where I'm at. Maybe we can make a rule where only people posting after 1 am are allowed to do so in this thread to keep the "Early risers, quick to bed" folks out.

    I don't normally go to bed late, no. 11PM and I'm gettin' pretty sleepy... I've always been an early riser, any time from 6:30AM-7AM, but the last week or two I've been waking up around 4AM. Not for school or work or anything like that. :eek: Just wake up and can't fall back asleep.

    I just like to sleep. period. I go to bed at 11/12 and could sleep in until 12 the next day.

    As for staying up late: I can, but I don't make it a habit. On the weekends, I'm usually playing poker until around 2a, but past that I'm falling asleep at the table, lol.

    I used to be a night owl up until a couple of years after college. Now I have a hard time staying up past midnight. I have the occasional late night still, but I usually end up paying for it days after it happens.

    I'm trying to get out of it.
    I can stay of for hours and not do anything productive.
    I'll frost a cake. I'll just go around FaceBook for an hour or so, then move on to watch infomercials. I will be || <-this close to buying said item from infomercial, but remember I have no credit card, and no money.
    Then, I'll boil some eggs. I love Hard Boiled eggs so much. They make great additions to anythying... egg salad, spaghetti, vegetables salad, sometimes I like to just eat the egg by itself. I'll take the egg, put bleu cheese dressing on it, take a bite, then put more dressing on it, take a bite, so forth and so on. When I reach the yolk, I usually get rid of it, then fill the empty cavity with grated cheese and pop the whole thing in my mouth. It's wonderful.

    So yeah, I'm a night owl.

    Oh no! KT, that sounds dreadful, all that hard boiled egg stuff. Except for the last bite with the cheese on the inside. That sounds delightful.

    I'm very much a night owl. I usually stay up tinkering around on the inkernet. I watch pornographic films every so often. I dance in front of full length mirrors. I drink tea. All at the same time.

    I'm usually in bed by 11:30 and get up at 6:30 to get to "work". On weekends, I'm usually pretty tired out drinking at midnight. It's a sign I'm getting old. :eek:

    At home I'm normally in bed at around 11, uni is a little later, normally around midnight. At home I wake up as soon as the sun rises, as it rises through my Velux window, which I choose to put no curtains on. I love it, I feel so refreshed when I wake up. One night I woke my girlfriend at half past 4 in the morning asking if we could go for a walk. She moaned and fell asleep.

    Given the freedom to do whatever, I would be a night owl. Most nights I could easily stay up until 2 a.m. or better, of course that also means I shouldn't be getting out of bed before 9 a.m. Unfortunately due to the addition of children to our life my wife and I split the week and toggle between early/late shifts on going to work/picking up our daughter from daycare. So 2-3 days a week I'm at work between 6-7 a.m.

    This was fine and dandy when our daughter was sleeping until 7 a.m. most mornings since I usually had about an hour of time in the morning on my late days when I could do stuff before the daughter got up. Now she's getting up around 6 a.m. so we lose our morning hiatus on the late days and are delayed on our early days as we wait for the other to get ready enough to handle our daughter. I'm hoping that this phase passes.

    Of course my sleep has not been helped by the addition of a Wii to the household, but it beats the grad school work that took my time up until November of last year... Now if only the degree would show up so that I know I'm done rather than the lingering feeling I have that I missed some important critical step in graduating...

    LMAO! Fantastic :p Not doing anything productive is so wonderful, especially when you haven't just done 'nothing' for a while. Ahhh, me-time. Not so sure about the egg stuff... but then we all have our thing ;)

    You should do what my parents did with me when I was toddler and woke up too early. They'd just put us in a play-pen/jail infront of the TV then go back to sleep :p
