I'm a night owl. I function best when I can sleep till noon and stay up till almost dawn. I have been one acquainted with the night.
I could launch into a rant here about how we owls aren't lazy or sinister or vampiric just because our circadian rhythms are different from most people's, but plenty of my kind have already done this. On this site you'll find links to such arguments and books that defend the nocturnal way of life.
Instead, I'll just offer you the night owl stuff I've found over the years.
