    How many hours do you sleep on average? Depends, 6-10

    Do you sleep at night or during the day? Day, mostly. I love the night.

    Do you wake up at all or "sleep like a baby", without interruptions? Wake up at night, I own ferrets, they do not understand sleep schedules.

    Do you dream? How often do you dream? Can you remember your dreams? I dream only of darkness and emotions.

    Do you take naps? No, I will end up sleeping 6 hours.

    What do you usually like to wear when you go to sleep? Not much.

    Do you have any "rituals" before going to sleep (such as taking a shower or drinking a glass of milk)? Kissing my wife and telling her to stop hogging the covers.

    How long can you last without sleep? What is your personal record? What about the longest time you slept? 46 hours awake, 20 sleeping.

    How many hours do you sleep on average?

    Varies widely

    Do you sleep at night or during the day?

    Would much rather during the day, circumstances (school, work) generally dictate the night

    Do you wake up at all or "sleep like a baby", without interruptions?

    Sometimes wake up periodically, sometimes not at all

    Do you dream? How often do you dream? Can you remember your dreams?

    When I have dreams, usually don't remember

    Do you take naps?

    Sometimes. When not having had sleep for a while, even going in and putting my head down on the toilet paper dispenser in the bathroom for 20 minutes is enough to keep me going at school/work.

    What do you usually like to wear when you go to sleep?

    Not much, except when other people are in the same room with me, in which case I usually where what I wore during the day, even with a new girl I wear clothes for the first couple few days

    Do you have any "rituals" before going to sleep (such as taking a shower or drinking a glass of milk)?

    Used to be kinda OCD about drinking water/using bathroom, not really anymore.

    How long can you last without sleep? What is your personal record? What about the longest time you slept?

    Depends. I once went almost 50 hours without sleep on a boy scout campout in my late teens (by chance finally going to bed at the exact same time as the fatass adult in the bunk above me wet his bed), once slept almost a full 24 hours in my early after getting extremely drunk (including spitting the neighbors car for once again stealing our parking spot and having him come over and punch our window out)

    How many hours do you sleep on average?

    I wake up about an hour before I get up so I'd say six.

    Do you sleep at night or during the day?

    Night.

    Do you wake up at all or "sleep like a baby", without interruptions?

    I wake up every time I move ( or my wife moves )..which is a lot. I'm always blowing my nose or spitting. Sometimes I go to sleep with snuff in my mouth and I'll wake up and spit and figure on leaving it there and go back to sleep and wake up and spit and finally get rid of it and then my nose gets stopped up because I always lay on one side, so I put nose spray in it and I put to much because it's all stopped up and it starts burning and that keeps me up. By then I got about an hour, so I lay on the side I can't sleep on ( trying to get the nose to drain some ) and hug and smell my wife ( out of my one good nostril ), which by then I'm wide awake, running Nietzsche and The Nine Noble Virtues through my head as I get ready to make and eat my sandwich of the day.

    Do you dream? How often do you dream? Can you remember your dreams?

    I dream. I remember more than enough of them it seems sometimes. They are not always very pleasant. They seem to all be variations of a few different themes ( heck..let's call them motifs ) in a made up world which I know my way around in.

    Do you take naps?

    Sometimes I lay down after dinner at work on the ground or some logs but I don't really go to sleep, I just lay there and listen to the quiet,relax, and let whatever I ate soak into me.

    I've also been seen getting drunk and passing out for several hours.

    What do you usually like to wear when you go to sleep?


    Panties.

    Do you have any "rituals" before going to sleep (such as taking a shower or drinking a glass of milk)?

    Many.

    How long can you last without sleep? What is your personal record? What about the longest time you slept?

    When I was younger I'd make two days into one ( I guess that's 36 hours.. or so )

    The second time I had to ever sleep alone out in the woods I stayed up till the third night.

    That's about it..

    Later,
    -Lyfing

    I usually get about 4-7 hours of sleep per night, which never seems like enough.

    I'm a light sleeper and I envy those who can sleep like the dead.

    Yes, I dream every night and I (usually) look forward to dreaming! I always remember my dreams, even those from many years ago, which can be a blessing or a curse, depending on the night.

    Yes, sometimes I take quick naps on the bus ride home. I find catnaps very refreshing!

    Yes, I make an examination of conscience, bless myself with holy water and say three Hail Marys.

    I don't do well without sleep, and the longest I've gone without sleep is about 36 hours. The longest I've ever slept is perhaps nine or ten hours when I was very ill.

    My sleeping pattern is utterly messed up nowadays. I can feel so tired and sleepy during the afternoon, that I some times have trouble staying awake. And when night falls, I often can't sleep until early in the morning. I find I have an easier time sleeping if I work with physical labor every day.

    I reluctantly comply with my biorhythms. When my body demands those little slices of death called sleep, I pop a 50mg prescription tablet called Trazodone before venturing off to the land of vivid and mostly horrible nightmares that haunt me for 5-7 hours; until I gratefully awaken in the morning, usually feeling as if I've been kicked all over by angry mules.

    Thankfully, I have someone who often sacrifices her normally restful sleep to hold me through the worst of these terrible nights.

    @Gareth: Do you believe these nightmares to be connected with your sleeping pills?

    Though possible, I couldn't find this adverse effect to be among the other listed side-effects. But I just contacted my PHCP about quitting this medication altogether, since I don't think it's that effective anyway.

    I suppose I generally sleep longer than average. But not always so good. And if I dream, I don't remember them.

    I just wish my hubby could sleep better, and not have such bad dreams.
    Not all in life is at it appears to be.
