never been a morning person

Thomas Edison once said, "you can often gauge a man's ambition by whether he hates his alarm clock or considers it his best friend." Well, I definately fall in the "Hate his alarm clock" category, but I have seen/heard of some pretty ingenioius alarm clocks. Found these today--maybe I should invest in one, or all :-/

"This alarm clock doesn’t just make noise, it breaks the snooze-button habit: after the first snooze period, Clocky rolls off the nightstand and runs away."

"As soon as you can assemble the four puzzle pieces that are popped up into the air at your predesignated time, the thing will finally shut up. That should be just enough commotion to assure that you won't go drifting back into la-la land."

"The Flying Alarm Clock wakes you up with a loud shrieking alarm coupled with a little propeller-driven key that leaps off your nightstand. To turn off the horrible racket, you have to get out of bed and retrieve the key."

My roommates used to have to suffer through my "inablitity to hear my alarm clock and actually get up" mornings and would joke about buying one of these. We never knew if they were actually real. Well folks, they are.

lol! That is funny Katie! I may get one for Derek, I have to kick him out of bed after his alarm has gone off 5+ times. :)

AHH! you need these. Trent has to deal with my pushing the snooze button all the time. That never happened until I met you. I mean that with a big hug attached to it! Someday we will both be amazing at getting up I'm sure!

Those are hilarious alarm clocks-- I especially like the one that rolls away! How funny that you know Courtney and Jared, too. It's a small world! Do you know them from Arkansas or from Santa Barbara? Anyway, I hope you and Colby are doing well and I'm glad we are now blog friends too! :)
