    when was your last all-nighter?

    I arrived at my office at 915am sunday for a series of meetings to try and get to the finish line on a contract for the purchase of a franchise company. We have been working on this deal for months. I didnt leave my office until almost 9am monday. The goods news is that i got the deal signed up and we are moving to a closing at the end of august.

    When is the last time you stayed up round the clock? Answers can be either work related or party related (which is a lot more fun of course).

    I had been awake from 5am sunday until 930 monday and i was so wired i couldnt sleep so i had to get on the bike for 30 minutes when i finally got home. Got a few hours of sleep last night and am now ready to work my tail off to get to closing.

    ramming speed to all

    Re: when was your last all-nighter?

    March of 1985.

    Arrived at work Friday morning at 11am and didn't head home until Saturday 1pm. At that time I lived 1 hour from work.

    I was supervising a dock crew of a Major Trucking company and because of snowstorms we had gotten all backed up.

    I don't miss those days.

    Re: when was your last all-nighter?

    Last fall, around the end of November beginning of December. For my Education 461 ("Promoting Literacy Connections") course, we had to create a complete literature unit around one book and also had to create a corresponding self-made supplementary children's book to use in conjunction. The project was due on a Thursday morning, so the day before, I spent three hours teaching fourth graders, had my own different class to attend that afternoon, then spent the rest of the night into the morning finalizing the 27-page project. Got an A.

    Usually once a month I get to the point where I'm so backed up I have to work 30 hours straight to get caught up and make my deadlines...no fun at all.

    Last time I stayed up all night having fun? Guess it was the last time I went to Vegas about 3 years ago.

    Re: when was your last all-nighter?

    About a year ago, we were on a fugitive detail. We got a tip that our guy was shacked up in a hotel room in a nearby resort town. The problem being, this town has nearly 1,000,000 hotel rooms to check. No sleep for a couple of days.

    FWIW, that individual is currently spending his time (and the next 9 years of his life) in a federal penal facility.
