If sleeping at around 2 AM qualify as Odd hours then count me in

Can't sleep early, for no perticular reason.

BTW, how many hours do you guys sleep everyday? For me, it's 6-7 hours a day.

this is a very very strange feeling i get only during the exams.
normally i sleep only around 2-3 am. But during exams the moment i touch the book my eyes become drowzy from 10pm onwards

@sir alec that qualifies to be an insomaniac (which is people deprived of sleep )

I sleep anytime between 3 - 4 AM since I reach home from work at around 12 AM.

Waking up is mostly between 10 - 11 AM. However, sometimes on weekends I just can not sleep, and wake up by 9 AM even if I've slept at 4 :(

Its bit modification of that. I have to wake up at odd hours, does that qualify.
something I posted on my facebook page.

The agonising moments will be over soon. no no, not a grizzly bear. It's my younger son who gets up at night and looks for something to play with before going back to sleep.

BTW, what the hell is an Insomaniac? Is that a person gone crazy because of acute insomnia?
