Sleepless in seattle, tom hanks, meg ryan... o there is no way you'll ever have a champ, unless you at least let us know if it's a person, thing, or place....

So here's a sincere appeal from puzzle addicts like me for one more clue... otherwise, i'll never get any work done, and will spend more than half a day on driving myself up the wall...

I don't have the answer, but let me muddy up the waters further...

212 is New York code?

Insomnia as sleepless is too literal. So, that's perhaps the red-herring Anantha wants us to swallow...

Citibank

212 - Area code of NYC
Insomnia - Citi Never Sleeps
Umbrella - the Travellers umbrella that has recently been sold by Citigrouop

Ans. CITIGROUP

212: Area code for New York City - also know as the 'city that never sleeps'
Citigroup tagline: Citi Never Sleeps
Also, Citigroup is HQd in NYC.

Insomniac: One who Never Sleeps which again ties in with the Citigroup tagline.

Umbrella: Thats the Citigroup logo.

SOLUTION

212 = Area code of New York City = Citibank was founded in 1812 as the City Bank of New York.

Insomnia = Never Sleeps = An allusion to the slogan 'Citi never sleeps'.

Umbrella = The red umbrella, the current logo of Citi which will soon return to Travellers.

Trylateral = Citibank
