The ME-CIR covers the same areas as a CIR except you are in a multi-engined aircraft and as such must also cover engine out operations e.g. after take-off, engine failure on go-around, assymetric approaches (e.g shooting an NDB approach with one engine out - that was a favourite).
A twin rating and a ME-CIR will of course be required to land your first twin job. IFR multi PIC command time is like gold in your logbook.
Oh, of course the other major difference between the ME-CIR and the CIR is the price

Yeah pilot1day, I would try not to do that haha. Imagine yourself after a hard days work, sitting in a cosy, warm cockpit (like a bed), not much light (like a bed) and very smooth (like a bed) flying.. You can see what I'm getting at.
On top of which you have to concentrate on dimly lit instruments and try keep an eye out on which towns you're passing over/by so as not to become disorientated. AND THEN, do some VOR/NDB intercepts.. or GPS or whatever.
Anyway all of this I'm sure you're instructor will mention before you start. So you're correct, annual leave would be a great idea, or hey even work in the morning, sleep, fly at night, sleep and keep doing that.
