Intriguing little game. Thanks.

Sleep wise - it is probably your age and trying to fit your body clock around your life rather than your life around your body clock.

BBC Radio 4 did a great programme about it this week http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00j72bg/Type_A_Meet_Type_B!/

If you are a type B (or "Owl")and your natural operating hours are (for e.g.)  11am to 2am rather than 7am to 10pm ("lark") you will often be sleep deprived trying to fit into a 9 - 5 working day - and more likely to drink to much coffee/ pop in order to deal with it and more lilkely to get insomnia - because you are trying to impose a different rhythem to your bodies natural one...
