Mmmm...iphone. My electronic Mecca, my link to the world, my instant music gratification, my flashlight, my alarm clock...ugh, my alarm clock.

I recently changed the alarm clock tone to "piano riff". It's a classic blues paino riff, just like 6 notes that set up that "I'm down on my luck, love has left me, a man done stole my heart and my money, I told my job they can stick it, and grabbed my guitar and walked out kinda blues!!!"

This is how my morning started just the other day:
Duh-nah-nah-nah-naaah! "I don't wanna wake up this morning"
Duh-nah-nah-nah-naaah! "I don't wanna get outta this bed"
Duh-nah-nah-nah-naaah! "Baby turn the alarm off, I'm laying back down my sleepy head!"

I don't think I can ever change it back to a regular alarm clock sound after the other morning. Ever.

I woke up giggling and channeling my inner BB King...horizontal accapela karaoke first thing in the morning.

Seriously, when is the last time you woke up giggling when you weren't a) drunk or b) being acosted by someone who woke up drunk next to you? Yeah, that's what I thought.

Waking up singing the blues has never been a good thing until now and that's a sound I can stick with!


  1. I need that alarm clock!!! right now mine sounds more like,

    waaa waaahhhh -feed me feed me

    waa waaaah -i pooped in my pants

  2. My alarm clock is the rain. Bring on the rain. Bad thing is that it makes me fall back asleep most days :)
