I don't even use my alarm clock any more, I set the alarm on my cellphone that plays a ringtone. I did this mostly because my alarm clock is always running fast, and well, I'm just not motivated enough to buy a new one.

Buzzer. I'm a deep sleeper, so the radio just doesn't wake me up. I need to be surprised awake. I used to have the volume turned up as loud as it would go, but then I got a new alarm where the volume is crazy loud, so I'm at maybe 1/2 volume on this one.

The alarm on the TV - set to ESPN - and the buzzer on the clock for 5 minutes later - still doesn't always work.

True story: I *had* it set for Sports Radio 950 KJR up until last night. Yesterday I slept right through my alarm so last night I was checking out the settings to make sure IJ hadn't turned down the radio or something like that. I ended up fumbling around with the knobs until I found the power button (it was dark and I was already in bed so I didn't want to get up), and I confirmed that the station was good and the volume was turned up. All is good.

This morning I was having the most real dream of being in Mexico, so much that I was startled when Mrs. JJD smacked me on the back to get me to wake up. It turned out I had changed the station the the Hispanic station by mistake and my dream was using it as the soundtrack.

Holy fuck shit motherfucker shit. Read comics. Fuck shit shit fuck shit I sold out when I did my job. Fuck fuck fuck shit fuck. Sorry had to do it....

I find I have to move my alarm clock around every now and then so I don't turn the alarm off and fall back fast asleep.

I previously used two alarm clocks - both set to buzzer - one next to the bed and one on the other side of the room. I now use the cellphone alarm.

I have a talking alarm clock, that speaks the time when you press the button on the top. For an alarm sound, it has an electronic rooster noise. It doesn't really sound all that much like a rooster.

I use the buzzer if I'm the only one getting up. The wife prefers the radio. We use the radio....

I started using the radio a few years ago. The buzzer going off is just too much of a shock to my system. Such a horrible way to wake up. The radio wakes me up a little gradually and I can lay in bed and listen to it while I get back to the land of the conscious. The buzzer damn near gives me a heart attack.

'But if one is struck by me only a little, that is far different, the stroke is a sharp thing and suddenly lays him lifeless, and that man's wife goes with cheeks torn in lamentation, and his children are fatherless, while he, staining the soil with his red blood, rots away, and there are more birds than women swarming about him.'

After she prepares my breakfast, coffee and sports page, my wife wakes me up with a soothing back rub.....Then the buzzer on the alarm goes off telling me that I was dreaming.

Our alarm clock only has a buzzer, but after waking we immediately walk to the bathroom and turn on the radio.

I don't know why we don't cut out the middleman.

Buzzer. I don't think I'd wake up if it was anything else. I need for the noise to be jarring in order to actually awaken.

I honestly don't know how you folks wake up to the buzzer. One time a few months ago I accidentally hit the switch from radio to buzzer, and when it went off the next morning, I thought I was having a heart attack.

It's either the local sports or country music stations for me.

I regularly sleep through the buzzer for a good 5 minutes, if I had it set to radio, I'd never wake up.

In fact, the clock radio has to be on her side of the bed, as I have been known to walk and/or talk in my sleep. I would sometimes shut the alarm off in my sleep. Oops.

I use my phone, currently "Jungle Sounds" which has a Tarzan like yell. Then I hit snooze 3 or 4 times and get up 30 minutes or more later.

Curling is on TV regularly here (and there are places where one can go if one wants to see it live - or participate) and my wife will ensure that we watch any figure skating that she finds in the next 4 years so I guess bobsled?
