Mr. Alarm Clock's Resurrection And Demise...

The last time my husband was deployed, I had a slight problem with our alarm clock. (Warning: Alarm Clock Obituary Notice) When my husband came home, he actually managed to resurrect it but this is the first morning I have had to use it during this current TDY (temporary duty for my non-military readers).

What are the odds of lightning striking twice? Of history repeating itself? The likely hood that I would kill it twice?

Apparently very good. :o(

Sigh. I wonder what kind of funeral I should hold this time...

Note: Or when looking to replace your old alarm clock, you might try for something like this or this... ::laughing as I'm trying to figure out who to get these for...::

QOTD: [I can't help myself... there are too many good quotes that seem not only appropriate but downright accurate!]

"An alarm clock is a device that makes you rise and whine." Unknown

"OBLIVION, n. The state or condition in which the wicked cease from struggling and the dreary are at rest. Fame's eternal dumping ground. Cold storage for high hopes. A place where ambitious authors meet their works without pride and their betters without envy. A dormitory without an alarm clock." Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914) American Writer, Journalist and Editor

"You will find the key to success under the alarm clock." Unknown

"A snooze button is a poor substitute for no alarm clock at all." Unknown

"A mouse trap placed on top of your alarm clock will prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep." Unknown.

  1. Perhaps you could leave the alarm clock in clear view at the door of your home as a warning to other clocks that choose to enter. You know, sort of like a decapitated head on a pike at the city walls...

  2. Wait! I found the perfect clock for you: The Aroma Waker, which claims the following:

    Clocks are to tell time, but it also symbolizes order, a regulation of routine living. To enhance a tedious routine living, the alarm clock couples with a diffuser that runs itself according to the time setting of the clock, user can customize what time of the day it gives out what smell, there are 2 heat sinks to vaporize oils at dedicated times of the day, it could be refreshing lemon breeze in the morning for the start of the day and a relaxing comforting blend for a warm welcome from a hard day's work.

    So There. Oh, and Merry Christmas!
