When do you get your best ideas?

I've been participating in some fun discussions over on QueryTracker.net, and it got me thinking...

I seem to get most of my creative ideas in the middle of the night...  Sometimes, I bolt awake and awkwardly grope to send myself a text message, but most of the time I simply percolate through the night, tossing and turning and not really "sleeping" in any sort of substantial way.  I wake in the morning feeling jolted and inspired (and groggy!), and I do my best to send my self-text message then.  (I have about a 50% success rate for the validity of those early morning ideas, and I'm usually surprised when I read them later...  confused)

Do you have a specific time when YOU get your best ideas?  I've created a poll in my left margin...  Let's see if most of us "creative types" have a pattern, or are our ideas as random as we are?

Sadly for my employer, my best ideas come when I'm at work. I typically send myself an email with a rough outline of my idea so that when I get home I can fill it out and post it on my blog.

Work, most definitely. Why? Because work is boring.

haha, as I'm in that half-dream state between awake and asleep. When I'm too tired to reach for my cell phone or a p[iece of paper to write them down, thinking, 'Eh. I'll remember it in the morning.' No, I won't.

In the shower, driving, or while in bed. Never fails. No easy way to write down my ideas. Some times, if I'm lucky, staring at a piece of blank paper or white document will make my fingers itch to fill it up.

Aww man, I missed the poll :( I usually get my best ideas in the middle of the night, in the shower, and pretty much any other time when I'm not trying to write.
