Anonymous:Which is correct to write: I laid in bed waiting for the clock to sound, or I layed in bed...?
The verb you're looking for is lie (lay, lain).
present: I usually lie in bed waiting for...
past simple: [Yesterday] I lay in bed waiting for ...
past progressive: I was lying in bed waiting for ... when ...
The verb lay (laid, laid) is transitive, so you need an object; for instance, you could say (in the past), "I laid the baby on the bed."
As far as I know, "layed" is not a word.
lay or lie
(If your clock is an ordinary alarm clock, you are "waiting for the alarm to go off"; if it's a public clock, outside your bedroom, you are "waiting for the clock to strike".
