Damn that's expensive. I wonder how well it wakes you from a drunken stupor.

That's a pretty neat idea.
I use my cell phone for an alarm clock ... I'm thinking of putting a Rooster sound byte on there to wake me up

I don't have one of those clocks but I did fork out some dough for full spectrum lightbulbs. I put them in our bathroom vanity so when you get up and turn them on, it's like noon day bright and you wake up faster. It really does seem to help.

Alarm clock = me pissed off every morning. The sound drives me MAD. If this works out I'm getting one, too, lol.

exactly why, even thought its ridiculously overpriced, kinda ugly, to me.... i've spent more money on purses (i hate my useless purse fettish) and this , if it works, could improve my life tremendously. if

I get to hear my wife's alarm clock..2-10 times, then her cell phone goes off as her back up.
So yeah, I understand the waking up angry thing. lol
08-22-2007 02:45 PM
kwyck is the most angry morning waker ever. seriously, he wakes up hitting the wall and fuming. lol im bad about mornings but a groggy, snooze 10 million times bad
08-22-2007 02:46 PM
I don't hit the walls But I am fuming...I hate it when people talk to me before I've eaten or spent at least 30 mins in the car listening to the radio, then I'm the most mellow guy ever

If we could all wake up like my baby girl..life would be grand.
I say her name a few times and she unsnuggles from the covers, looks up at me, smiles and starts kicking and laughing.
Oh to be 8 months old again, lol.

Is it just a regular incandescent light bulb or is it a full-spectrum one? I'll admit that I bought a "full-spectrum" (or some blue only version that was advertised to be better than full-spectrum) a few years ago to help me wake up.
I like that idea of putting it in the bathroom because I fell out of the habit of using it in the morning due to me always being late, lol. I always took that extra 15min for sleep instead of looking at light.
If yours is just a regular type of light (although it sounds like it dims/brightens automatically over time instead of an instant on/off), there might be a cheaper, less cool way of doing it:
There are timers that you can plug lights into. My ex had one in the living room to light up at night so it looked like ppl were home even if we weren't. I imagine you could use one of those in your bedroom too - just that the light would be instant and most annoying, lol.
I don't hit walls and stuff when I wake up...I just sometimes bump into them. But it's not out of anger, but more out of a lack of awareness of where my body is, lol.
