insomniac? What's keepin'you up at night?

This isn't a thread about curing insomnia, I'm just curious as to what's keeping people up at night. I go through bouts of insomnia. It's usually caused by thoughts of work. Thinking about lists of things I need to work on the next day.

What's your reason(s)?

A 2 week old baby. Though he is keeping my wife up more than me so I should not complain.

The psycho circus clown in my closet keeps me awake on weekends.

He likes to party.

I always take a nap in the late afternoon. I think the nap offsets my usual "wake up" that comes around 1 or 2 in the morning. Sometimes I go right back to sleep. Other times I stay up for a while. I really love that quiet time. If I don't have work the next day, and sometimes when I do, I might stay up for an hour or so and read or watch TV.

Thoughts of randomness.

South Park is starting at 12:00 so I can't go to bed now

Actually, I tried going to sleep an hour ago but I can't sleep. I've had a awful time sleeping since the beginning of the year. If it continues, I'm going to go see a specialist about it. Sometimes I sleep six hours at night but I had a wonderful string of four hour nights last week. Last night I may have slept three hours. Tonight isn't looking good for me as well and I have a meeting early in the morning. Yay me!

Last week I had really bad toothache and tried to hold out until I could get an appointment with my regular dentist.

Mind numbing TV. Kids go to bed, and the wife and I hang out for an hour or two. Wife goes to bed, and usually reads, so I do not go back to bed then, as I do not want to ruin her reading time. I tell myself that I need to watch just a bit to unwind and soon it is midnight or later.

I think this is self induced insomnia.

Bizarre, freaking dreams!
Sometimes I'm back in the Army barracks.
Sometimes the whole world is flooded and I'm swimming around in my speedo past all the drowned/bloated/smelly corpses and debris. In a mall, (and I haven't been inside a mall in this millenium.) I'm also swimming up and down staircases, which is pretty cool.
Sometimes flying, but not like superman, more like I'm swimming freestyle to pull myself through the air.
And sometimes I'm copulating on the moon with a girl in a space suit joined to mine 'down there', looking through the bubble face-shield trying to see who she is.

Just glad I amn't sleep walking anymore. For four months, I was unable to sleep for more than 3 hours at a time due to a popped disk in my spine. Even on worrisome med levels, I'd have to walk around until the pain subsided, then go back to sleep. But after the second surgery was finally successful and I was able to sleep through the night, I continued to get up, walk around, and I'd wake up walking in the street at 2am! I finally stopped this by stacking coins on my doorknob. Coins'd clatter, I'd wake up, have a good laugh and go back to bed.
