Wake Up Call

What time do you Pingers out there wake up? And do you use the snooze button?

I am, for the most part, a morning person. The time I get up varies on the day, as I only have a morning class one day per week… but all in all, I find that I awake anywhere from 7 to 9 am. For me, sleeping till 10, even on a weekend, is almost too much sleep.

And, I’m proud (?) in some small way to note that I’ve never, ever used the snooze button. It does nothing for me. Does it press your button? -pm

I'm much more of a night person -- I find that I can get more things done at 2am than I can at 10am. Unfortunately, my schedule doesn't often allow for that.

I'm usually up and out of bed at 8:15 (though today I was up at 7 so I could go vote and get to work early). One thing I will say (and say frequently, apparently) is that I love to snooze. I snooze probably 10-15 times each morning (with multiple alarm clocks, no less)... I'm not the type that can get right out of bed -- I need to know that I have a few more minutes before I have have to be out of bed.

I get up at 5:45 AM and go to the gym. Then back home, shower, and out the door to work by about 7:30 AM. I never, ever use the snooze. I occasionally hit the alarm without ever actually waking up - but most of the time I wake up 1 minute before the alarm goes off anyway.

I get up 5:45 - 6:15 depending on the amount of snooze I use.

I am SO not a morning person. Back in the day, I'd stay up until 3 or 4am because that's when I could accomplish stuff. These days I can't really do that, since I have to actually go to work and all. I usually get up at 8. No snooze. I used to set the alarm for 7 and then lie in bed until 8, but I started going back to sleep. So I stopped that silly practice.

I've got one of those alarms that isn't very loud but it makes the scariest damn noise you ever will hear. I was tempted to mention it on yesterday's ping. It goes off at 6:30 and I am up... not snoozing for me. Heck, I eat the snooze button for breakfast!

I set my alarm for 7:05, but when it goes off, I will reset it to 7:10 or :15. It ain't the snooze bar, but I suppose it's close.

Fresh--I wake up to Stern first, then the screeching alarm. That's like dessert before supper, innit?

My roommate decided a while ago that, in order to make it "easier" for her to wake up, she would set her alarm to start going off 4 hours before she had to get up. So she sets it for 4 AM and then resets it for 5 AM, ect. Not only that but the damn thing sounds like a jet taking off.
