Ha! Such a spoiler again, I have choices:a.) press or set to snooze, but the next time it goes off you're getting up for good! b.) Obey! and get up to start ur day c.) turn it off and curl up again in your sheets d.) nothing. I don't have an alarm clock. (or i only have the barn or farm rooster?)

I have an alarm phone, does that count? lol! Well lately i need to set my phone on "outdoor" because the standard alarm volume is not enough to wake me up. I'm expecting a call so i need to be ready just in case eventhough i sleep around 3 to 4am.

Yeah, snooze all the way! Haha. When i'm not too sleepy, one snooze is enough for me. I fix my bed and head towards the kitchen to look if there's anything to eat. If there's no food yet prepared, I take a bath right away and prepare for school. If it's a no-school-day, then I basically just snooze off my alarm and go back to sleep :D

Alarm clock? What's that? Just joking. I have an alarm clock but I never use it. I sleep til I wake up and I work til I'm tired. The only thing I use the alarm clock for is to tell me what time it is. I know lucky me. But that's life when you work from home and you are the boss.

Okay, according to my own dictionary, an alarm clock is something that wakes you up from a very wonderful dream where you were about to kiss a Hollywood celebrity. Second meaning, it causes severe heart attack every monday morning. LOl Anyway, so you are self-employed? cool?

Lol, that's very resourceful. And what makes it better than the usual alarm clocks is that you can't set it to snooze. Haha ciao!

Yes, the other good use of cellphone. Be sure, though, not to throw it out the window like rascal227 did because she was in a half-dream,half-awake state. Lol ciao!

If I hear an alarm clock going off I have to figure out where I am. I have an alarm clock but havent used it in a few years. There have been times when I was at someones house and an alarm clock woke me. Only once (that I remember) did I react by throwing the thing across the room. I mean really... I did not have to get up and I was actually sleeping (very rare) so why the hell was it set? Oh thats right I wasnt at my home.

You threw somebody else's alarm clock!? Lol. I think you should have a custom-made alarm clock that would shout your present location so you won't have to be thrwoing things. haha

A. is usually my choice. I hate mornings, and I hate getting out of bed. However, laying in the bed doesn't get anything done, so I usually drag myself out of bed about 9-10 A.M. I work evenings though, so I usually don't go to bed until about 1-2 A.M. It was 2:30 this morning before I went to bed...

yea I know what you mean. I am more the zombie type. I walk around worn out and in a daze a lot of the time. I also have a bad back and a bad leg, so that doesn't help either. I actually wish I could get approved for disability and become a stay-@-home husband, but I can't get disability, even though I can barely walk a lot of the time, and bending over to pick something up off the floor is all but impossible for me at times...

Let me add another option E. Curse the alarm clock because its still too darn early. hehehe. Its hard to do B and when i try A ill just end up doing C. One time i bought a really annoying alarm clock so that for sometime I was doing B. :)

hi there, I get up at the same time every day because of this built in alarm i have in my body, It doesn't matter where I am, but this alarm always tells me its time to get up. I have have used an alarm in the past and didn't like it. I always found if i needed to get up a bit earlier than usual i was always awake before the alarm. My body just seems to know when to get up. Strange eh???? ~proudnana~

I would definitely choose letter A....lol...that's what I actually do. and I don't have a rooster. The volume of jeepney and car horns would denote that it was time to wake up..lol...and I do wake up the next time it goes off. But during weekends I'm a sluggabed. happy mylotting.

It's different for me though. I wake up earlier on weekends than I do on weekdays. I wonder what phenomenon that is. Lol
