Damn the alarm clocks, Full sleep ahead!

Oddybobo, an ex-favorite blogger of mine, decided that I had been left unmolested by memes long enough. That means she hit me with a meme. What really gets my ire is that this isn’t even one with a loot of room to play with the questions. It’s not like you can give really good disturbing answers like I’ve been known to do.

Let’s get this over, shall we?

1. Do you use an alarm clock to wake up in the morning?

Only on days I want to be rudely woken up by a screeching electronic device instead of waking up naturally. Which is any day I have to go to work. On the weekend I have Clone to wake me up before the crack of 7:00 AM.

2. What time do you set it for?

I don’t, my wife does. She sets it for 5:30 AM. However, like someone else I know, we keep the alarm in our bedroom set about 10 minutes faster then the other clocks in the house. Why? It’s an illusion that you are actually sleeping longer then you really are. Stop looking at me like that.

3. Do you hit the snooze button? If so how many times?

Nope. The clock is on the other side of the room from me, closer to my wife. When it goes off, she gets up and turns it off and makes sure my butt is out of bed. Then she goes back to sleep and I am her snooze alarm.

4. Have you ever abused an alarm clock?

One time when I was in high school I was given an alarm clock that was shaped like a baseball. In order to hit the snooze button you had to throw it. The theory was that after you threw it and the snooze alarm goes off again, you would have to get up and hunt for it, effectively waking you up. The theory was wrong!
Anyway, back to the story, one weekend I accidentally turned it on. It went off at way to early Saturday morning. After being rudely awoken by it, I very angrily grabbed it and threw it as hard as I could. I should have opened my eyes when I did because the next thing I heard was the breaking of glass and a splash. My blind throwing had put my bedroom window in the path of the ball. Then after demolishing the window it landed squarely in the middle of our swimming pool. That clock didn’t work anymore, and for some reason my mother decided not to buy me a new one.

5. It’s time to spread some “It’s Blogcess” linky love.
This isn't a question. Does it actually count?

Rules of the game, so I have been told:

First: Copy and paste #1 - #5 (Make sure to link to: “It’s Blogcess”, which is the link in #5. Because it’s always polite to link to the one who started the linky love.)

Second: Link to my site (because it’s polite to link to the site that tagged you).

Third: Go and tag up to five other blogs, or more if ya like.

Fourth: Email the owner of, or post on the blogs that you have tagged, to inform them that you’ve tagged them.

Oh, whom to tag… Normally I don’t tag people with these, but I’m feeling a little saucy, er I guess that should be sauced, this morning.

1. Ragingmom of The Splatter Zone… because I had a chance to meet her last night.

2. Talulazephyr of Koolaid and Love Stains… again because I had a chance to meet her last night and her blog mom changed the name of her blog from “Love and Koolaid Stains” to “Koolaid and Love Stains”. Don’t ask, you don’t want to know. Ah hell who am I kidding?

3. T1G of Drunken Wisdom. He just has way too much free time.

4. Spurs of Pull My Finger. They guy travels so much; he has to have some good alarm clock stories.

5. Virtue of The Rantings of an Indentured Servant. She was gullible enough to babysit for me last night and this is how I’m repaying her.

There we go. Now I’m going to go back to trying to pickle my head.

Where the hell is my email, you bastard?! If you can't play by the rules, I shouldn't be expected to play along. I am a very busy man, after all.
