Today I learned... [Nov. 22nd, 2005|12:00 pm]

...that maybe having my radio-alarm-clock set to NPR to wake me up isn't a good idea.

I woke up, and then fell back to sleep under the sway of the soothing, level voices of their news correspondents.

Well, I'm amused.

yeah. That's why I always set my radio alarm to rap stations. In the morning this one local station interviews rappers.

...I can see how that would work.

Actually, the most effective waking-up I've had recently was a period where the tuner got bumped a bit and I woke up to loud static.

Yeah... That happens to me a lot, too. :X Partially why I use my cell phone alarm; it's not exactly what I would call "soothing" enough to fall back asleep to. XD

Hah. "Soothing", not quite. But it's small and portable and likely to make me throw it out a window.

But that's part of its charm! XD

At least, it is if you pay for the insurance... *LOL* Then you CAN throw it out the window, and they'll replace it. (For a premium, of course, but it's cheaper than a new phone.)

Yeah, that's what I usually do, but today I didn't even get up long enough to hit the alarm.
