Early support again. I love the faint headache you get as your body protests against the unnatural time of day. I couldn't get to sleep last night, and this morning the alarm woke me in the middle of an uneasy dream about an exam - I had filled in answers to all the questions and was feeling pretty confident, until the invigilator persuaded me to check my paper. At that point I realised there was an entire section that I hadn't completed, involving having to draw a sketch of a still life involving marbles.

Luckily I was able to snooze for ten minutes, which was enough to allow my brain to complete a sketch and reassure me a little. I'm slightly depressed that my nightmares are so cliched.

Poll: What is your most common nightmare?
