    Well, in 2005 I found the best way to go about it was to have a shower during the lunch or tea breaks to keep you awake. Mind you, the games started at 8 pm over here so it may have been a bit easier.

    For those of you in England, the shower is the wide-headed nozzle mounted high on the wall in the bathroom, often above the bath, sometimes surrounded by a glass cubicle or behind a plastic curtain.

    You know what it is but still choose not to use it?

    Mate, it's that hot in Sydney at the moment I'm having about 3 per day. The old sweaty patches on the business shirt is not a real flash look.

    Seriously, cannot recall a more exciting build up to a series in this country, ever. Maybe 1992-93 was close, but still not as big. At that time we were on the way up and thought we would beat the Windies, but this series is way bigger than that. Got the new stereo on the work desk which has a 15 centimetre LCD tv in it so it looks like i'm working but am just watching thgame all day. Sensational.

    Foolproof.
    I'm on a similar plan without the evening nap

    Woke up this morning feeling knackered, straight away I was gutted, knowing it would wreck my Ashes plans, and the day I've had at work has exhausted me. I'm on my 5th coffee now, but I dobut I'll even last the whole first session.

    Still, day three is generally a good one to watch in Tests, so I'll go through the night on Friday, straight home from PP, quite a good night's sport actually

    Got in from work before, and said to my missus, "Sorry for ignoring you love."

    She looked confused, said, "when?"

    I said, "the next six weeks."

    Quality.

    My plans for last night were hampered by the fact that I was really ill - some sort of stomach bug which resulted in me puking five times between 7am and 7pm. I got about 3.5hrs between 4.30am and 7 the night before, then the odd hour here and there during the day when my stomach wasn't feeling too dodgy.

    Watched the first hour or so, then started feeling overwhelmingly tired and took the opportunity to get a good 3 hours or so, before coming back downstairs at 4.15am and falling asleep on the sofa in fits and starts throughout the rest of the night. Still have a very dodgy stomach and have no idea how things are going to go tonight. Fingers crossed my situation improves soon, although having an excuse to sit on the sofa all day and do nothing is pretty cool.

    Stayed up till the lunch session last night, but had to be at work this morning.. Working tomorrow to, but should manage some all nighters over the weekend..

    The main question is, what do you do at lunch? You can't doze off really, and its 40 boring minutes

    I quite happily went to sleep during lunch. And tea. And to be honest the Giles-Pietersen bowling thing in the last session didn't do too good a job of keeping me awake either.

    Got up a five, only real sleep-stopper was a mug of black coffee at seven. Tried hard not to fall asleep in double French, but I think that had little to do with me being tired. I thinm I might invest 69p in a packet of glucose sweets tomorrow, should do the trick along with the coffee.

    I stayed up all night no problem. Then had to go to the doctors at 9:20 who signed a form saying i was of sound mind (for my year abroad forms) then got back and slept at around 10 and only got up at 7:45.

    So knackered at school today, only got up at 5:30 as well. Plenty of scope for kip over the next few days though, training day tomorrow and some pointless revision techniques crap on Monday.

    Managed to stay awake until tea dosed off at around 5am. Watched the last session on Sky Plus (for my sins) when I got up.

    I'm sure there is a few things to do
