Wake Up, Little Susie

2006-12-29 - 11:22 a.m.

Well. Had an interesting morning this morning.

Since Brin is visiting, she gets the bed. I sleep in the Armchair Of Doom (with the optional Life-Sucking Tentacles). I swear, you sit in this thing, you just FEEL yourself relaxing and drifting off...even in the middle of The Monkees on DVD.

So anyway, I am awakened by Brin at 7am, hitting me about the chest with her neck cushion (a blue 14-inch roll that she tucks under her neck). Once I got the CPAP mask off and could talk, she informed me that my alarm clock/radio/CD player was going off, and she couldn't figure out how to shut it off. Stupid me - the official employee breakfast was yesterday, and that's why I had set it. I had forgotten to disable the alarm. I promptly got up and did so. We went back to sleep and got another four hours before we finally got up to the day.

The ironic thing is, she owns the SAME MAKE AND MODEL of this unit. But she doesn't use the alarm on hers, so she didn't know how to shut it off.

Somehow I think I'll be doing penance today.


We're heading out to Ikea. She is determined to help me organize the pack-rat room that is my Life,and I'm determined to let her.

So, we're on our way.

Be seeing you.
