    ...you wake up, look at your alarm clock and see that it's 11:30, run off to the bathroom in a panic, taking a way too short short, get dressed in a hurry, and run out of the house -- just to realize that it's actually 9:30 and for some reason your alarm is 2 hours ahead?

    No? Well I do.

    Damn you alarm clock, damn you.

    short short(s) are what makes summer either wonderful or painful, depending on who's wearing them. [​IMG]

    have you ever woken up, realized it's 8:10am when you have a power meeting/conference at 8:30am, jump out of bed - bang your head while opening your bedroom door, jump in the shower without waiting for the neighbor upstairs to finish with the hot water, get dressed in a hurry, turn on the radio (as part of the daily morning routine).... and be greeted with.."it's a lovely saturday morning here in toronto..."

    yah...that's me. and sad to say, it's happened a few times.

    haha wakemeup.exe .. there's something really funny about that. I remember i used to have something similar, except it could also dial up to the toronto astronomy centre thingie or something, and set the exact time automatically.. it was so ghetto, it was one of those dos programs with a really bad ansi interface.. haha [​IMG]

    Everytime that I come home at like 3am and I need to wake up for work at 7am... and I try to set my alarm in a drunken stupor.

    I ALWAYS FORGET to put turn the alarm on... The time I set is usually right, but I'm to stupid to activate the damn think.

    Then I wake up at like 3pm, and my alarm still displays 7am... and I think I'm ok... till I get a call from my boss. "So are you not feeling well?"

    Damn alarm clocks.

    ^^ this version is actually well improved.
    it'll play a beep sound, or else your choice of mp3/wav/cd from your computer's hard drive.
    just somehow i forgot to turn the "ON" switch before going to bed last night.
    woe is me

    i don't get out of bed until i have mentally confirmed what day it is and when, exactly, i need to be at work.

    i find that this little mental excerise, making myself think about something, really helps get me going. plus there is nothing better than figuring out that it saturday and going back to sleep. [​IMG]

    ^^^ HAHA i have had that mental discussion many times with myself.

    "okay, it's 6am, I usually get up at 7am.. why did I set the alarm for an hour earlier this morning? Come to think of it, do i know where i am? "

    My worst habit when I'm really tired is I hear my alarm going off and in my sleepy state I think I press snooze, when really I've hit alarm off. So then I go back to sleep expecting to get woken up in ten minutes. Instead I awaken an hour, or whatever later, and realize its like nine oclock and I'm supposed to be at work by now.
