People (I think in the context of the article I read it was American people, clearly the only kind worth studying) apparently hit their snooze buttons an average of three times
before waking up. This makes me a below-average snoozer, of which I believe I am justifiably proud.
Last night I tried a trick that I read on a blog recently but -- to my link-happy horror -- I can't remember which one (but it was probably Tom). Anyway, the trick involves using your body clock to wake up, and feeling more refreshed as a result. This was important last night, as I'd accidentally stayed up until 3am working on something; whoopsie. So I looked at my alarm clock, set it for 8.15, and said to myself "Right, waking up at 8.10, in 5 hours and 5 minutes times".
Which, to my surprise, is exactly what happened. And I don't feel nearly as exhausted as if the alarm had gone off and I'd hit the snooze half a dozen times. Cool.
If I think I got a lot of flak for being boring and blogging my lunch, I can't imagine how you all will yell that I've also blogged waking up in the morning. Hey, at least I'm not blogging about my cat, right? Dear god, will someone kill the cat blogging meme before it spreads? Maybe I can engineer a conflict and wipe out both groups.
