Lagging

Never Late Alarm ClockI’m having some trouble getting around this morning. I’m by no means Sleep Deprived, I got my full 8 hours last night, which is a pretty rare thing for me these days. I set my alarm for 10:30 and I was actually awake 10 minutes before it went off. This worked out nicely considering I didn’t have to wake up Sean with the loud horn that the alarm seems to blare. I really do have to fiddle around with it and see how I can play with that setting. I am interested in doing some shopping on Think Geek though. It’s probably one of my favorite sites for gadgets/gizmos and I have to say they have a really cool 7 Day Alarm Clock that has always held my interest. It’s called the Neverlate 7 Day Alarm Clock and will cost you around $35. Luckily I’ll only have to pay the shipping since I live in a sales-tax free state.  I can say that something like this would work out very well for me so I can get back on track with my sleep schedules.  I really do need to get myself in order these days.  One day I can sleep until 4pm but the next day I’m wide awake by 9am.  There truly needs to be some balance and I think retraining myself with an alarm could be the best thing for me.

It’s statistics are fairly easy to sum up:

Features:

  • 7 Independent Daily Alarms
  • Nap Timer (1-120 minutes)
  • Easy-to-use Rotary Set Mechanism
  • Customizable Snooze Duration (1-30 minutes)
  • Backlit LCD Display
  • FM/AM Tuner
  • Radio Sleep Timer
  • Battery Back Up (2 AAA batteries, not included)
  • Dimensions: 5” cube (to top of knob)
  • Power Cord Length: approx. 5.5’
  • Uses 120V standard US current
  • Manufacturer Warranty: 90 days

The only thing that would make it better is if it could house my iPod, but since that seems to have a permanent fixture on my desk these days, I guess I can deal with the standard alarm sound.

I have read (on other sites) that my dream clock is in the works. Not only will it have a 7 day alarm but it will also have an iPod dock and many different alarm sounds to choose from. As long as it’s got a sleek design, I think I’ll be perfectly happy with owning one.
