    I seem to suffer with annual Winter Insomnia, but being a bit of an anti-medication kind of person... I struggle to actually force myself to sleep! How do you waste time? Normally during November, December and some of January I tend to sleep maybe 1-2 hours a night, so have a ton of time to waste!

    Any books worth reading?

    The Mystery Man - Colin Bateman

    Awesome book, loved it!

    Try Dan Brown, The Da Vinchi Code, Angels and Demons ECT. Probably a good read. I tend to watch a load of stuff on IPlayer or Channel4.

    So far I have watched EVERY scrubs, family guy and american dad... so anything else along those lines would be a great help to recommend! I can only watch them in stints as it gets boring other wise

    Also played a crap load of Forza on 360 as its about as active as my mind can handle when tired

    If you're into Simon Pegg type humour (think 'spaced') - you'll like it! Couldn't put it down, and I'm not much of a reader!

    I didn't know either until someone told me, it's seemed to have slipped under the radar. It's pretty good, I think I prefer Blue Harvest though. Might watch them both back to back. Now there's an idea.

    Sounds perfect - Im watching Spaced Season 1 now
