How do you set your alarm to wake you up in the morning? Radio? Buzzer? Other? Or are you one of those lucky bastards who doesn't need an alarm?

I set a buzzer alarm. When it goes off at 7, I immediately turn on the Today Show, and roll out of bed before Barbara Harrison messes up the news at their 7:26 local news break

I have a Mexican-speaking maid wake me up with a bloody mary.

When I was in the "Model House," my alarm used to be Janice who would yell and kick one of the male models out of my bed...

Andrew and I have the same routine. We sleep together.

Radio only. My beloved uses these godawful buzzing alarms, which have the power to ruin my entire day before I even hit the snooze. I loath the buzzer!

Cell phone alarm set for 6:15, with two seven minute snoozes. Then Meg gets up and I sleep for a little longer :)

i use my cell phone. its great because when i travel i already have it with me and i'm used to the sound it uses to wake me up. even better my phone has an alarm only setting so no longer am i woken up at 3am by drunken friends calling either.

i need two alarms. radio blares classic rock and five mins later the cell phone across the room starts chirping. i like to sleep.

i no longer need an alarm because my dogs have taken to waking up at 5:30am every day. ninja's winning tactic is to pounce on my sleeping head with her front paws until i finally give in and take them out. there's no going back to sleep after that so i'll usually start working, which, ironically, i do from home.

I wake up when the monkeys at the zoo start screaming at each other. Seriously, fucking monkeys wake me up every day. I hate zoos.

That's because the help shouldn't be sleeping with my models.

i wake up to barbra streisand's don't rain on my parade every morning. it's on a continuous loop. i hit the snooze several times until i get to the part where i feel compelled to sing a long for the rest of the song. surprisingly effective and life affirming.

Cell phone ring tone set to the theme of Footloose

I set my radio alarm clock to conservative christian AM talk shows. I lay there until I become so infuriated that I have to get up just to escape the insanity.

I use the radio and hit the snooze several times. When I hear my roomate in the shower, I usually realize it's time to wake up.

i got a new phone this week and it has this pleasant chiming noise reminiscent of my childhood days at the buddhist monastery.

what? it is pleasant though.

People who say they do not need alarms are dirty liars.

I prefer a buzzer to wake me up.

I have one of those sweet moonbeam clocks that wakes you up by flashing light. It's supposed to be a more "natural" way to wake up. But if you sleep through the flashing light for more than five minutes, a really horrible buzzer goes off--which is what I usually wake up to.

cell phone alarm, usually about 1-5, 5 minute snoozes.

Ryan said...

My clock wakes me up to "Hail to the Redskins." Then I get up and stare at my Clinton Portis poster for about 5 min. before I get ready for work.

The garbage truck...running into everything possible in the alley behind my apartment.

Buzzer. With a catch. My alarm clock is on wheels, that are big and soft and meant to take a dive off a night stand. So after one snooze, the alarm will buzz again then take off roaming around my bedroom for me to get up, find and turn off. I hate/love it.
