Because it feels so good when I stop...

Four o'clock in the AM is no time for an alarm clock to go off; that's all I'm saying.

It could be worse...You could be sitting up like I am, numbing your mind with the internet, because your doggone head cold is preventing sleep. Ever since Nyquil was taken off the store shelves around here(Thanks, Governor!), I am plagued by the common cold, which had never before been a problem...
By the way, stop by Markos, check out his new meme...

I agree. That's why mine is set for 0430...

What? No Nyquil? That's barbaric.

No Nyquil? None? Even by prescription?

What state are you in?


Tam..... I have and need three seperate alarms. Although lately, sleep has been a much missed friend.

Fun fact: 4:00 am is the lowest point in most folks' circadian rhythym. It's the hour when the vast majority of night-shift calamities happen as people succumb to falling asleep at the switch or snapping a little bit.

So, the good news is this is normal and your sense that this is an offense against God and Man is completely correct, the bad news is you probably never really will get used to it.

Yeah, you can get nyquil with a prescription. But it irritates me no end that such simple and effective medicine was taken away by a bunch of misguided people trying to make me "safer". Now instead of mom and pop making meth for themselves and their buddies, we have mexican gangs shipping t in at a higher expense, which in turn has caused burglaries to skyrocket...
I suppose I'll have to go see the doctor, but t seems stupd to pay him $50 so I can buy a $3 bottle of Nyquil...

I knew other members of my species had crash-landed on this ball of mud! Umm, oorglue fahzle pahp? S'been so long since I spoke to anyone from Home! ;)

There's the beeping clock-radio, the TeeVee an' my phone, which tries with three different tones and some mornings it's still a struggle.

Like the old Army recruitment slogan used to read, you do more before 9 am than most people do all day.

I'm sure it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy to note that.

I used to need backup alarms, but now I have large dogs. When they know it's time to get up, the younger one whines at a pitch that my brain now associates in a Pavlovian fashion with "GET THE PUPPY OUT BEFORE SHE EXPLODES", and the older one simply stands and breathes on my face.

Admittedly, I could do without my first view of the day being straight up his nose.

0400... Been doing that for the past ten years.. It's gotten to the point that I wake up at that ungodly hour even on my day off. JimB
