following up on a couple of post froms yesterday in the "weird habits" thread

this is not weird at all but ........ my alarm clock ( altho digital ) has to be set as if at a number position on a dial

i..e. 6:35 6:40 6:45 never 6.37 , 6:42 .. that is just WRONG:

..not even Jesus and the Mexicans are awake that early!!

I am wondering what time the cock crows ( or perhaps the digital alarm clock buzz's ) in your house ?

It depends...whenever I go train in the morning at 6am...on a normal day, at around 7:45ish.

When I used to live in Boston ( yes, the USA one ) my alarm went at 5.00 so I could be to the office for 6:00 ....

I really grew to hate that alarm clock.

My alarm is set for 6:45. My inbuilt alarm clock awakens me around 6:00 but I just lie in bed until 6:45 or until I hear my son wake up.

Re: alarm clock ?

**OFF TOPIC**
has a mod ever moved a thread OUT of off topic ?

I just noticed the thread I quoted "Weird Habits" was started and still lived in Daily Life ... I'm just so used to having my threads moved to off topic ( boo -hoo-hooo ) that I started it here.

Re: alarm clock ?

I have a very sophisticated alarm clock. Self-setting, programmed to go off exactly 15 minutes before sunrise. No matter what the season, the clock self-adjusts to the sun.

And then he whines and wibbles and bumbles and barks until I drag my sleepy carcass out of bed to give him a biscuit.

The snooze function shows no mercy either.

I used to have a Malamute who did the same thing... one night I was out rather late and so ignored him when he came in in the morning ( ya ever tried ignoring a 45kilo. dog ? ) he waited a min. then put a big paw on my shoulder but I just rolled over... he waited another min then put put another paw on my shoulder and gave a little tug... I ignored him.

he then waited another minute.. sat back on his haunches and howled

"Ok ok.. don't make a scene, I'm awake!!!!!!!" he had won another round.

Re: alarm clock ?

If wife is working, 6.00, otherwise 6.30 or 6.45 depending on which train I want to get. However this is often superceded by the in-house feline alarm clock, which can go off any time between 5.30 and 6.30 and cannot be switched off.

Re: alarm clock ?

I like to get up around 7:45 but I'm still so zleeepy by that time that I stay in bed till 8:15-8:30. In the last 2 weeks I've often managed 7:45 though. Guess that means I'm getting old...
