tartcake: I wake up every damn morning at 2 am. Because I have to pee. EVERY DAMN MORNING! I don't care if I go to to bed at 8pm or 11pm I wake up at 2. And then finally dose off at about 3. Which would be fine if I wasn't in a dead sleep when the alarm goes off at 430. Damn you bladder!!
jtown: AverageAmericanGuy: The biggest hurdle is just getting out of bed.What I like to do is get out of bed, splash some cold water on my face to freshen up, then wake everyone up with a big smile and rousing tickle attack. Then I turn on the TV and do some stretches before sitting down to a hearty breakfast.It helps to fake being happy and energetic. Eventually it becomes habit and not fake anymore.It's awesome. And you're awesome, if you're awake!Nothing defeats the tickle monster like a hearty morning fart. Learned that early in life and it became a habit.
GenePoolinWV: I can stay up till 2 drinking heavily and still wake up at 5.
Destructor: GenePoolinWV: I can stay up till 2 drinking heavily and still wake up at 5.Alcohol messes with your sleep cycle. About the worst thing you can do if you have insomnia is to drink. Oh, it'll put you to sleep, but then you'll get up again in 5 hours.
Bungles: And do that for 5 years, and your skin will look like it's aged 15.
doglover: August11: I go to bed at 8pm and wake up at 3:58am most mornings, though my alarm is set for 4am.What horrible things did you do to get that schedule?
August11: Most people, though, who are against getting up before sunrise have never tried it.
Destructor: Bungles: And do that for 5 years, and your skin will look like it's aged 15.Drinking heavily for 5 years, that'll be the least of your problems... :-(
In the perfect world we would all be morning people.
Rhino_man: Any tips for making morning people less goddamn smug?
postnobills: All you morning people go kill yourselves. Right now. I'll wait...
Bungles: Depends if you rank "getting laid" over "dying of liver cancer".I DO!
Destructor: postnobills: All you morning people go kill yourselves. Right now. I'll wait...On it. I figure another 10-50 years should do it.Bungles: Depends if you rank "getting laid" over "dying of liver cancer".I DO!Hmm. I see. Well, you have made a compelling argument.Sir, I salute you. Carry on.
Bungles: It's not totally outrageous, if you think about it
Bungles: We are creatures of vanity.
CowardlyLion: Rhino_man: Any tips for making morning people less goddamn smug?Keep them up 'til 3 AM.
8tReAsUrEz: Naw. 2100 is enough. They really get all pouty and moody and really act like toddlers who haven't had their bath and evening bottle. I actually find it cute, especially when it's one of those "I must be cold and distant" type persons... I LMFAO and either excuse myself (if at a social function) or send 'em home (if at work) so they can put on their jammies and go to bed. The smug act is really a 3-year-old dressing up in grown-up clothes and wanting to act all serious ^_^
Gunther: lindseyp: Currently my alarm is set for 6:30 but I'm always awake before it. 5am is easily doableI hate you. I just wanted you to know that.lindseyp: I think part of the reason is I never have light-blocking curtans, so when the sun wakes up it's bright as anything.My bedroom window looks out onto what might be the last remaining video rental store in the world, which has dealt with the internet making its business model obsolete by covering itself in extremely bright neon signs that stay lit 24/7. Blackout curtains are a sad necessity and they mean I'm always in a deep sleep when my alarm sounds, making me miserable for the first couple hours of every day.
47 is the new 42: You might want to get that checked out. Of course the article ignores people working overnight. I recently went to a new schedule for a technically new position with the same official title, so I still haven't figured out when to go to sleep or wake up, and I don't care, on the weekends I'm going to be more a less a day person because that's natural./ Really hates working nights, but it's full time.// Also screwed up an opportunity for a $20/hr job.
Nogale: Most people I know who describe themselves as "morning types" are annoying as heck.
8tReAsUrEz: I woke up at 0540 for most of my young life. Had insomnia for most of my life (childhood included). Never achieved anything productive before 1500 and actually got almost fired twice for errors made at exactly 0900.fark MORNINGS. fark THEM IN THE ARSE. WITH A SPLINTERED BROOM. THEY ARE THE SPAWN OF SATAN.I no longer have insomnia. I no longer have apnea (which it turned out I had, and that got beaten with a nice Darth Vader machine which makes me laugh my arse off every night), I work out semi-regularly, and I still don't get any ideas, write anything resembling the King's English, or have my troubleshooting wits around until after midday. I'll happily be the one relieving your poor tired morning butts at 2000 when you go all foggy and sleepy and cute like babies rubbing their eyes (awww) and go on until you come in all refreshed to find the fort held and the cats herded.I love night shifts, night driving and night flying, I was proudly born into tribe Nosferatu and a son of darkness shall I remain.
