I thought waking up Grumpy is what the dwarfs did when Snow White turned them down.

Well, maybe 6 out of 10 in the general population actually sleep in the same bed as someone else, but I doubt the ratio is anywhere near that high for Farkers

I'd go as far as putting this in HOTC level.

I got a Pee Wee Herman like house. Although once a malfunction caused the eggs to get dropped into the toaster and getting into the kitchen was like storming a beachhead with howitzers firing shells of red hot liquid death.

My gf is currently asleep, so I'm looking forward to waking her up and telling her this joke in the morning.

The link to the man with the 100 lb scrotum who rejected a $1,000,000 gift operation to fix it ruined my morning, and it's only been morning for 32 minutes.

Wake my wife up and you better be ready for some serious ear rape...with words.

Loud, angry words.

I solve this problem by simply not getting up in the morning.
 
2012-06-22 03:55:25 AM
I'm not sure I wake up grumpy so much as dazed, confused and wishing I could just go back to sleep instead of having to get up. Although some mornings I do end up yelling "Where the HOLY FRAK ARE MY SHOES" at nobody in particular.

I used to think it was all the weed I smoked but I stopped that years ago now. I am not, never have been and probably never will be a morning person. The last time I tried to turn over a new leaf and get up early so I could have a relaxing breakfast and cycle to work, well it lasted a week. It was quite a good week, I slept the right amount, I got to work early and got to leave early as a result, didn't have to hurry anywhere... it was easy to see why a lifestyle in which these things are possible would be quite a good lifestyle.

These things are not possible for me, not for more than a few days. I'm a natural night-owl, I'm pretty sure I have severe DOSD, and the rest of y'all are just weird as far as I can tell.

Brilliant headline! Morning mood is often contingent on what one wakes up next to - hopefully some ultra-Farking hot puss!

Bah..that alarm clock in the pic FTA says 7 am...I would NOT be grumpy if I awoke at 7 am every morning. I'm done by 3:30.

Then it's Fark coffee and weedio till I leave at 6:30

Even better, I work for a restaurant. I have to be at work at the ungodly hour of 5pm, therefore being forced to rise by 4pm.

Exactly.

Farker Porous Horace once wrote in a thread something like "It's nice to have that 1/4 - 1/2 second between when you wake up and you realize who you are." (I just had to mark him as a favourite for that comment alone.) The bit before reality hits is really nice.

She's not grumpy; she's trying to escape the dastardly beast known as The Half Limp Morning Boner.

"Wake up"? Don't you have to sleep before that can happen?

Ever tried anti-hystamines to make you sleepy? I have to avoid them like crazy since those little tablets can put me to sleep for days. I have them bookmarked in my head as the go to pill if I ever get insomnia.

Most of my coworkers come to work grumpy. Few things more irritating than someone who won't even say hello in the morning because they hate their lives.

I have always been a morning person. But right after my husband died, I would wake up in my normal happy state and then realize he was gone. It was like getting a good morning punch to the gut.

It has been long enough now that I wake up happy again.
 
2012-06-22 07:21:09 AM
Mine acts like a 5 yr old with grumpy moans and sour faces, and then gets mad that I let her sleep in.

Or says she wants to go do something really early in the morning, but gets to sleep in the car all the way there.

When I quit smoking I became a morning person -- waking up early, getting out of bed immediately, and not foggy. I have no proof that it is the secession of smoking that made me bright eyed an bushy tailed; but it certainly seems like it.

I tried those, should have bought extra batteries. Bought two off the get go and one failed after a week. They did help a bit but once I had to order more batteries, I just got lazy.

I bought Smoke Tip and it was still working after about 4 months. I still puff on it sometimes, but with the lowest level of nicotine I can find. Smoke Tips was about $50 for a starter kit with 2 batteries.The local smoke shop sells one battery and a usb charger for $12.

It also saves money to refill the cartridges. I would inject .5-1 ML with a hypodermic. That way I can refill 30-60 cartridges for $25.

I was thinking about trying the gum but I hate chewing for hours on end. Heh, a buddy of mine said he used it like a wad of dip and would just let it sit in his bottom lip. Said it worked pretty well actually.

You could also try nasal snuff -- probably the safest way to dose yourself with nicotine.

What it's supposed to be, what it is and his misplaced pride in it are very different things, my friend.
