Well actually let me explain a bit for those unfamiliar with the slang. An early bird is someone who loves to go to sleep at a reasonable time and get up very early in the morning. An early bird also likes to get things done during those times.

A night owl on the other hand is someone who loves to stay up late at night, burning the midnight oil like and I am definitely a night owl. I also like my sleep in the morning. I always set my alarm to get up a certain time but always find myself having to press the snooze button lol.

However when I do have to get up early I do appreciate it and wish if only I was more like this. Anyway what about you? Are you an early bird or a night owl and how much do you love your sleep?

Neither. I have been working an on call 24/7/365 job for many years. I haven't had a regular schedule for as long as I can remember. I can do either equally well. Not to mention work in excess of 36 hours straight. I don't do that any more if I can get away with it. But when I was younger it happened at least once or twice a year.

Oh they call that doing a coaster where I'm from. I remember my father telling me how he did a few of days too some time ago.

I'm a night owl, years ago when I did hobby programming in DOS, it was true that the bugs didn't come out 'til after midnight.
