So I got about 40 minutes sleep last night, I look and feel like a zombie right now. Am I the only arachnophobic who has repeated nightmares about spiders crawling on my face, or pillow, or on the wall next to my bed? Dreams that feel so real that it jolts me fully awake (when I first starting having them I used to actually jump out of bed and switch my light on, or even leave the room before I realised it was a dream).

My arachnophobia pretty much only applies to spiders that are bigger than 10p coins, but not tarantulas. For some reason I've always loved tarantulas and have a Chilean Rose tarantula as a pet in my bedroom, who is named Rose (yeah, originality is not my strong point!). Of course the spiders in my dreams always fit my phobia parameters, they're always big, black, creepy fuckers, the type that I would run screaming from if I saw it in the house!

Now dreams like this aren't so bad anymore when I'm deep in sleep because I've had them often enough now to know that it was just a dream, and so if I was deeply asleep before then after the initial jolting awake and sitting up in bed I can usually get right back to sleep. However, if I get these dreams when I've only been asleep for an hour or less, as was the case last night, it makes it pretty difficult to relax enough to get back to sleep again, despite knowing it was just a dream.

Fuck you, subconscious! Let me get some damn sleep already! This lack of sleep also isn't helping this persistent dizziness that I keep getting bouts of, which seems to be sticking around for a fourth day.

Also more Lib Dem doom predictions the in the news today:
Which is never a great thing to wake up to, even when I've had more than 40 mins of sleep -.-

On a positive note, Doctor Who was awesome this week. The second best episode of the current series so far, IMO. Now I just gotta hold out until the Autumn! Why, Beeb, why split the series in two this year? I'm just hoping for some Sherlock to fill in the Summer gap.

Right, that's it, I'm off to watch cute animals doing funny things on YouTube. That's about all my mush mind can cope with right about now... D'awwww!
