I listen to music and read stories :)
sometimes I look through the news and find cool stories and such. I am somewhat of an insomniac, so I stay up late or dont sleep sometimes. so I pick that quiet time to relax,listen to music, and paint/draw

Me too! I'm a total insomniac! I always try to fix my sleeping schedule to what is considered "normal", but it never works out!

Thanks for the feedback! I'm always listening to music while online... I'd die without it! I always check out news, and other current issues spreading throughout the webisphere. i'm a bit of a news junkie...

I'm not much of an artist...it's been so long since I've drawn anything with effort....that aspiration died in middle school.

But ya, I guess I already do everything that there is to do at this time of night.

after tiring of porn (and this takes more than one attempt, sometimes more than two) i play games online, like scrabble or literati. i also like to surf the net for trivial information. plan my next day or week as well.

sometimes i'll use a social networking site to reach out to friends and loved ones and also keep myself current on their activities.

when all else fails i watch things on nbc.com, abc.com, southparkstudios, etc...

if that doesnt work then ill eat myself to sleep. you can always go for a walk if isn't freezing out!

best,

unfortunately there isn't MUCH to do late at night. so when I have nothing to draw, and music is boring me . . . I die of boredom and pray I fall asleep soon lol
I haven't tried fixing my sleeping schedule, and the thought of sleeping pills freaks me out o_o
but I like being awake late at night :)
try finding people from other time zones to chat with, I have some friens over seas that I chat with from time to time

Fixing my schedule usually doesn't work, which includes staying up until the next night, so I can pass out quick until the "normal" sleeping time occurs, and wake up until the following morning.... but I always fall victim to the "I'm just gonna lay down for a couple seconds to rest my weary bones.", and, usually, that turns into 8-9 hours, where I wake up at 12-1 am... once again.... back to square one. smh

I actually have some skype buddies from far away places, which I'll try to hit up, since they're in a conscious time zone.

lol I hate when that happens to me, those 1-2 hour nap to rest up and re-energize . . . turns into a full "night" of sleep. I end up in square one again lol
so I guess I'm not the only weird night-owl :D

lol, i guess not ;D

I'm sure they're are plenty of night owls "hoot-hootin" all night just like us, out there somewhere..

But, they're probably too indulged in their porn addiction to care.

 :D Ya obnoxiously loud overly acted orgasmic "moans" in porn is pretty funny!

 But, it also turns me off ::),  leaving me with a headache and a serious case of blue balls :'(

I find that amateur porn, for the most part, far surpasses those big company air-headed non-sense productions!


An owl that howls, eh? Maybe your really a wolf!~

lol yes something like that, more of a wolf I guess.
amateur stuff is getting pretty good now a days, but then again that made the rise in wannabe pornstars lol
I guess its just my perverse sense of humor, but I love the over-dramatic orgasms. they're funny as hell

Funny that your Subject Title asks about online, while your text doesn't mention it specifically.

If you are online, well the world is just immensely interesting and you can find out a lot just by surfing. On iTunes you can find and follow free classes at many terrific universities.  Or use google and just start exploring things that might interest you.

Or, you can distract yourself with entertaining sites - youtube, podcasts, etc.  

You can organise your life, do your calendar, etc. etc etc.

_________

As soon as you are actively looking for things online, not passively consuming - beware that this is stimulating and will not help you fall asleep.   Passive entertainment, or masturbating then rolling over, leads to dreamland.

_______

But why stay online.  Just do whatever floats your boat around your house.

If you just want to burn off energy - do stupid household tasks you might otherwise never do - ironing while watching old movies.  I really hate ironing but if its night and there's a tacky movie to watch, or stupid series, and I can have a cocktail and do it in my underwear, well its OK then.  

Nighttime is good for making music mixes.
For cleaning cellars because its always dark anyway.

Shoe polishing (again, I find this comforting only if I do it in front of mindless television or movies).
Silverware polishing. Mending.
Baking. Putting chili on to cook all night.  Make sandwiches for the next days. etc etc.

There are less "masculine" tasks for the night but my dad used to work in the garage.  The garage or workroom at night is a special atmosphere. 

Now I think men have their mancaves, what do they do in there?

In the states I find it interesting sometimes to do shopping at night.  Just park very close to the store if you are in suburbia!

Also, for years I was a long distance runner and about 50% of my training was at night and its just great to be outside in the mysterious night.  I think in the USA there are late night fitness centers and I am sure the clientele is quite unusual.

You can go out for a walk and see the night world.

Also - a dog - will take you out.
Or a cat - to play with inside but then they have their sleeping patterns.

Also, just wanted to say, walking around outside is particularly nice in full spring, and all summer.  Nighttime in the fall is a bit sinister, if the season is changing to cold.  Nighttime in winter - well, its just too damn cold!  Though its fun if you make an "artic expedition" out of it.

Sometimes when I'm bored I go to Google Earth and look at places I've lived to see how much they've changed. Or I'll have a look around places where my internet friends live.

I also use GE sometimes when reading books to have a look at where the story is happening. I really love it when it's in a place where you can drag and drop the little man onto a street and "virtually" walk around and look at the shops and/or homes. Good stuff.

If you enjoy playing slots, there is a great FREE site that you may want to check out.  The best part is that you never loose any real money but it sucks if you actually do hit a jackpot and cant cashout.

I like Google Earth but get frustrated sometimes
1) when they only have some streets available
2) when some places look disappointingly normal compared to the image I've had in my brain

    I like to read the local crime news then cross reference the perps name on facebook when I'm really bored.  A woman I always see at the local supermarket just got busted for insurance fraud. :D

I use GE to look at my old homes too. Sometimes it makes me sad like when I saw they ripped out the pool 6 months after I had to abandon Jim's house; but other times it makes me the happy like how I see that the cement pool and fountain that I put into the front yard of the house that Randy and I lived in is still there. I also see that the crack dealer is stilling living next to my last house in Ohio, because his car is still in our shared driveway. However, the picture is a year old at my current house, so you can't the above-ground pool that I put up here last summer.

Hah, well once you have exhausted porn... maybe try reading a book? :)

Or if online is your thing, try http://www.ted.com/. Lots of interesting lectures and ideas from all kinds of experts and philosophers...

Alternatively I've discovered the joys of downloading old comics from torrent websites. I'm reading through loads of old Uncanny X-Men and so on that I'd never find normally!

I'm trying to wean myself of being online in the wee small hours. It's a mild addiction, and it's not really healthy methinks!
