    2 to 3 rings of the alarm clock, at which point, it can not be ignored. icon_lol.gif

    My dog...
    Every weekday morning, shaking his body and head so that I can hear his ears and jowles flappin'.

    Which is his way of saying, "yo, time for you to get up and shower for work and time for me to hop up on your bed and sleep another 30 minutes"...

    Sometimes, I wanna be the dog. icon_cry.gif

    The sound of a small bird singing and the knowledge that Cat wants his breakfast.

    My cat. He insists on singing the cat equivalent of really bad karaoke ('cat-aoke'?) outside my bedroom door starting at around 4 a.m.

    I know this could only happen in California, but my vet actually prescribed him Valium. I don't get it for him, though. icon_rolleyes.gif

    On the other hand, you have to get outside around 5 a.m. this time of year here in Palm Springs because it gets too hot during the rest of the day. So maybe he's just doing me a favor.

    Not to come off like Mary Sunshine or anything, but I love getting up in the morning - can't wait to talk with people I like - and run my two chows. A new day to me is a gift - how much work and fun can I pack into this new day? Really though - the people in my life are what keep me "up" and happy.

    I'm a morning person, so I enjoy getting up early when everything is quiet with a cup of coffee and classical music on the radio.

    I just awake early, even if even if I've had a late drunken night. I awake early, and never with a clock.

    I go to gym early, to get it out of the way. Plus I have 3 dogs, and a cat too walk; yes, the cat come for the walks with the dogs.

    Me too, and my puppy crawling between my legs. He's the only boy that seems to want to get down there these days. I have to oblige. There are also days I am just so happy to be alive and healthy and that's what gets me to jump out of bed with a smile.

    The only thing the alarm clock accomplishes is pissing me off. Gonna shoot it one of these days, oh yes I am. Sumptuous revenge shall be mine, and I will delight.

    Two border collies and a big tomcat, launch a dawn (or 0600, whichever comes first) attack on my bed.
    I can ignore them for a while, but then the cat lays on my chest and drools on my face. BLEURGH!

    The alarm clock on workdays; otherwise, the sun.

    Actually, your pic looks disturbingly like the first thing I seen when I open my eyes. But imagine a huge string of drool dribbling out of it...
