What do you use for your alarm clock – an actual alarm clock or your phone (or maybe the sun, your kids, your pet, other)?
On the days I have to go to work or get up for a run, I use my phone. On other days, Data wakes me up.* Too early.
I have been using my cell phone as an alarm clock since college (2002). But I still kept my old alarm clock around:
The last time my sister, Christina, visited, she noticed that I was still using this alarm clock from middle school… and thought that was pretty sad. So she got me a schweet new alarm clock for the holiday!
(the red light is not always on)
Now, I think I WILL use an alarm clock!
Notice the other Star Wars stuff on my book stand?
We have Darth Tater (Spud Trooper is on the dresser), an R2D2 Pez**,
and even my memory board is Star Wars themed (Christina made it for me – I love it).
Yes, I am a big dork.
*Yesterday was a work at home day for me, and Data woke me up at 5:00 am. Thanks Data. The bonus of working at home is that I get to sleep in until 6:30!
**My Uncle Tom gave this to me the last Christmas I saw him, in 2005, before he unexpectedly passed away. I like to keep it where I can see it each day.
