CW Member with the worst sleeping habits...

I nominate Sean, aka FaaipDeOiad. I've seen him posting at some horrendous times (I'm talking, 4:30am). Crazy guy.

Also, Matteh and Pedro Delgado often seem to be posting when no other English CW members are. So I think they must be pretty screwed up.

Sometimes I struggle with insomnia aye, Matteh is a pup and burns the candle at both ends.

This week though it's been due to the ear infection I've had, just too painful to sleep, thankfully yesterday I got some anti-biotic spay and a good nights kip ensued.

What makes him a gun poster is that, in terms of quality, his 3:00am posts are indistinguishable from those made at a more friendly hour.

Sleeping's one of my very few talents. I can doze off absolutely anywhere. I think it comes from having worked nights in my younger years & getting used to catching forty winks whenever possible.

Eddie seems to be up rater early and posting away.
I get up at 6.00, shower, shave, ablute and get ready to go to work - there's usually half an hour or so before the bus comes along to check the important stuff such as CricketWeb, Cricinfo, ****, Derby County and Homestarrunner - then if there's any time left I'll look to see if I have any urgent work-related mail.

I'm in the office now - oops, look out, here's the boss.

Other Australian posters with a knack for the 4am post are howardj and Jono, as well as myself and benchmark.

Think i've made a few 5am posts in me time :)

I'm a nightmare sleeper, its a rarity that i'll get any more than 5 hours. I get up at 7.30-8am to take my girlfriend to work, but i dont usually go to sleep before 2.30-3 (sometimes later.... i'll knock the TV off then, usually stick my ipod on untill i've fallen asleep)

When i'm on my own i'll go to bed much later, probably try and sneak into bed when my dads getting up for work (around 4am), so i'm not b*****ked for being up all night.

I may be a nightmare getting to sleep, but if i've got no reason to be up next day, i'm just as hard to wake up. Have to literally drag my sorry *** out of bed

I've done a few all-nighters on uni assignments, and just procrastinated on here for ages, posting tripe.

As opposed to when I don't. :cool:

I'm actually a very good sleeper these days. Had a period in about December/January time when I wasn't doing too well, but nowadays I'm usually in bed between 11pm and midnight. Sometimes it's with the TV on, or my iPod - particularly if I know I'm likely to be woken up by drunken flatmates later. I find Sigur Ros renders me immune to drunken shouting at 3am. :)
