I've been sick with a cold for over a week now, nothing to special about that. Anyway my roomies have both left for Thanksgiving, which means the place is extremely quiet and boring. Anyway, I live staying up, but on Saturday night I looked at the clock and said, "It's midnight and I'm sick, I'm going to bed." Again nothing special.

Except for the fact that I woke up a little less than half an hour ago, making it 1 PM on Monday. I slept through SUNDAY! And half of Monday. Mind you I have to write an Economics paper, do laundry, and clean up my stuff in a little more than 24 hours. I mean... you aren't supposed to be able to sleep like unless, your like... I don't even know, I didn't sleep like that when I was hospitalized for various things that have happened.

Okay, done now. Have to go and work and do stuff I was supposed to have two days to do and now have one. Happy happy joy joy.

"You cheated!"

Have a nice Doomsday.

There's an old woman in Japan who sleeps for two days then stays awake for two days at a time. You might be able to challenge her one day laugh.gif

Best wishes getting all your stuff done.

As much as I'm sure that that probably isn't very healthy, it also sounds absolutely lovely to me! I'm terrible at getting deep sleep and usually end up waking up feeling tired, especially during the winter, so 36 hours of sleep sounds wonderful!

'Hope you're feeling better now from whatever it was.

I bet that was very disorientating. I've thought that I was on the wrong day of the week before, but I've never actually lost one!

When I had mono I did that once...then I went back to school and didn't stay home again. ^^;; I mean really, 36 solid hours is enough to shake off mono, right? heh

The weird thing about getting lots of sleep is that you feel bizarrely alert. When you're used to running off very little sleep and then you get that much it's like you've walked out of a dark building into blinding sunlight. Disorienting, definately.

Go you!

ah.. sleep. this is my expertise ^___^
well, what you did cavocy is like a dream come true tongue.gif Anyways, after about 3-4 months of trial and error and semi-fainting, ive deviced a small set of plans on how NOT to sleep, but think that you did ^___^. Now, the maximum affect you can get is sleeping for 2 hours a night, nearly consecutively for 2 months. What works best, is to get something reallly exciting to do, that you love to do, except its also work, (ex. drawing a comic) Next, go to bed @ 12, and wake up 3 am. for the first week or so, itl feel like your drunk or something.. but if you put sum nice music (may i suggest 'Child Prey' by Dir En Grey XD) on, you can make it. After the first week or so, switch to sleeping @ 11pm and getting up at 2 am. Try that for another few days.. and then you are free to sleep from the following timings without too much pain
10-12,.. 3-5, ... 2-4 (1-3 is a bit risky, but some peoples metabolisim can do it)
the only problem that ive realized from these sleeping patterns, is that you loose control of blood sugar.. making you really excited. But dont worry. there are No sudden drops. Those medical experts are crazy. theyve not been on rika's sleeping diet yet, so they cant say poo. rolleyes.gif

36 hours of sleep is a scary thought.

Longest I've slept is somewhere between 20 and 24 hours, and that was only once, after a week of running around the Brecon Beacons with an assault rifle, sleeping in cramped, wet and uncomfortable places and not getting a lot of it. What joy.

Think I managed to stay awake for about 40 hours straight once, although in less strenuous circumstances.

Oooh! So much sleep that sounds beautiful I have a nasty tendancy to do it the other way round. Much awakeness and no sleep.

Worst example being the run up to my final show at uni I was doing 72 hour shifts of awake with about 4-6 hours sleep between each one. Hmm not clever, got everything done but I seriously dont advise trying it EVER!

I've been told that is supposed to be impossible *shrugs* so Im not sure how I managed it. It does throw your sleep pattern out for weeks though.
On the plus side you get to see and hear some pretty neat things that Im pretty sure shouldnt be allowed outside of surrealist images and drug trips. Good for inspiration and excellent if you dont mind blinding headaches and issues with tilting floors. tongue.gif

Please my dear when you work out the secret of your amazing ability, let me know so I can put it to good use should I try doing something quite that stupid again. tongue.gif
