    I couldn't help but notice the time variations from weeknights to weekends. That's not good for your health, according to some research. I've heard that in news reports in the past, but I don't recall the ill effects it supposedly has.

    Here's just the first thing I found on the net:
    http://my.clevelandclinic.org/neurological_institute/library/know_sleep.aspx

    An excerpt:

    Tips for a Good Night’s Sleep
    Create an optimal sleep environment by making sure that your bedroom is comfortable, cool, quiet and dark. If noise keeps you awake, try using background sounds like “white noise” or earplugs. If light interferes with your sleep, try a sleep masks or blackout curtains.

    Think positive. Avoid going to bed with a negative mind set, such as “If I don’t get enough sleep tonight, how will I ever get through the day tomorrow?”

    Avoid using your bed for anything other than sleep and intimate relations. Do not watch television, eat, work or use computers in your bedroom.

    Try to clear your mind before bed time by writing things down or making a to-do list earlier in the evening. This is helpful if you tend to worry and think too much in bed at night.

    Establish a regular bedtime and a relaxing routine each night by taking a warm bath, listening to soothing music or reading. Try relaxation exercises, meditation, biofeedback or hypnosis. Wake up at the same time each morning, including days off and vacations.

    Stop clock watching. Turn the clock around and use only the alarm for waking up. Leave your bedroom if you can not fall asleep in 20 minutes. Read or engage in a relaxing activity in another room.

    Avoid naps. If you are extremely sleepy, take a nap. But limit naps to less than one-hour—no later than 3 pm.

    Avoid stimulants (coffee, teas, cola, cocoa and chocolate) and heavy meals for at least 4 hours before bedtime. Limit caffeinated beverages to two per day and avoid them entirely if you have trouble sleeping at night. You may find that light carbohydrate snacks such as milk, yogurt or crackers help you fall asleep easier.

    Avoid alcohol and tobacco for at least 4 hours before bedtime and during the night. You may find that you will fall asleep faster and awaken less often.

    Exercise regularly, but not within 4 hours of bedtime if you have trouble sleeping.

    My times are horrific to say the least. I usually get into bed about 1am to 2am. I don't decide to sleep until around 4am. Then I don't wake up till after 12 noon and I then get out of bed about 1pm - 2pm.

    ... It sucks not having a job.

    I suffer from Arthriis and various other post DVT conditions, so find it hard to find a "Pain free window" in which to sleep.

    I tend to get about 5 hours on a good night before the meds where off...But I don't seem to suffer from lack of sleep. I used to beat myself up about it which just made things worse.

    Now I go with the flow.

    I have very similar sleep patterns - for the only reason that I am a self-employed web designer. I am based in the UK but my major current client is based in Ohio - so I have to be available (crucial early development) during their working hours. Some nights I get so involved with work after a conference call late that I find myself slipping in to bed after 5.00am. Plays havoc with home life and as I like to fill my weekends and rise early it has felt like I am in two times over the past few weeks!
