I can't remember if I've blogged about this before, but I don't like getting up in the mornings. I love sleeping, and I love my bed. But it isn't always a conscious choice, sometimes I honestly don't remember hitting snooze. Other days it's a very deliberate decision. And I guess I'm not the only one out there, because some people have been getting very creative.
I may have mentioned before the clocky alarm clock that I want. When you hit snooze, it rolls away, and the next time the alarm goes off, you have to find it. Then I heard about the alarm clock that goes off when it senses when your body is at the optimal time to wake up. Today I read about a few more that I thought I'd share with you:
(1) But what if we aren't mentally awake until after the coffee? This alarm clock requires you to assemble a jigsaw puzzle to get it to stop. Pass.
(2) This one requires a small element of coordination, and all who know me can say, that's more than I have. It hangs from the ceiling, and everytime you hit snooze, it gets closer to the ceiling, making it harder and harder to turn off.
(3) How is this going to get me out of bed? Timex makes an alarm clock that will emit Glade scents. Why spend money on this? It might make waking up more pleasant, but it won't make it any more likely. Better would be, as this gizmodo suggests, to "just put your coffee maker on a $5 timer." Now if they could come up with one that rolls away and emits a really foul odor, I think we might have a winner.
