WHY ARE YOU PEOPLE STILL AWAKE ???
I know Dr. Gonzo is awake attacking his warts, but what are the other excuses?

Mine? I got paged for an SQL Table space issue for a Pennsylvania timed release job that tried to run at midnight. x(

6. It's easy
One 1-hour nap, one 3-hour nap, and 20 hours of goofing off like the lilies of the field, and you can stay up all night chirping and sucking down coffee.

17. I just got back from "Lost In Translation"
Went to the late show, and besides its only midnight my time, still early!!
Pretty good show. That Scarlett Johansson could have a bright future ahead of her (and she is cute as hell!!). Bill Murray was great as usual. Sofia Coppla should be proud.

We beat Buffalo 17-7. :) The game ended at 11:30, but it took us a while to get out of the stadium.

23. I worked six to midnight today
And I do not work again until 8 PM Monday. Last two nights I worked 10 PM until 2 AM, so even though I am 41 I am quite capable of staying up all night. Besides on a Sunday night I am always anxious to read the latest installment of top ten.

24. Severe nightowlism -- I stay up too late habitually...
Not quite an insomniac, but I can always find tons of great stuff to do when it's time for bed (like post on DU). It's very easy for me to stay up late.

Although the mornings (and afternoons) are getting tougher to get through. Can't quite make it on 4 hours of sleep a night like I could in high school!

25. If you liked Skittles' first routine, you'll love the SQL........
I'm awake because it is 2:35pm.

Although I would rather be asleep, I am at work.

P.

P.S.
That joke only works if you pronounce SQL "Sequel", like we do in the UK.....as in Sequel Server.
