Snoozer Loser

Every morning, I snooze my alarms. Yes, that's alarmS, as in two on my clock radio and five or six on my cell phone. Occasionally, I'll set one on my PDA and if E is out of town, I use his as well. I'm not a morning person and tend to stay up much later than I should, so it's difficult for me to get up. There is the rare occasion that I pop right up and get started with the day, but more times than not, I hit that magical button that grants me a little more sleep. Again. And again. Sometimes for an hour or more.

So yeah, snoozing has gotten me into trouble, or at least made me run late, so it's not a good habit. I set my alarm earlier to allow a snooze cushion. I finally stumbled across a device that might be a solution.

The SnūzNLūz from one of my favorite online shops, ThinkGeek, donates your hard earned money to an organization you despise every time you hit the snooze. An interesting footnote states that ThinkGeek can take up to 50% of each donation. Oh well, even though I like them and don't want to be wasting money on little bursts of nine minute dreams that I can't finish.

I have my alarm go off early so I always get one snooze too. I don't do multiple snoozes except sometimes on the weekend.

I don't do mornings well either ... but I do tend to awaken after my alarm and not go back to sleep.
But I look at it daily as if I'd like to belt it with a hammer ... the only thing that prevents me is that I'd have to buy another, and another, and another ...
does that firm invent one you can belt to pieces each morning and it bounces back fine for the next day?

My alarm clock comes in at 6:30am and sits next to my bed and says "MOMMY."

Justjenn: I guess you can't take a hammer to that one ... 'tis illegal here too!
