Alarmingly funny

Cary and I each have our own clock radios. I suspect this arrangement is fairly common among married folks who don't get up at exactly the same time.

Recently the snooze button on my Sony dream machine (purchased at Brand Names circa 1992) has started to go. This is a problem since the snooze button is about the only part of the dream machine that still gets any use.

But more amusingly, Cary's alarm, which is much newer, just changed ON ITS OWN from a regular beeping sound to a sound that I can only describe as a fakey French police siren. Plus it is really loud. Now every time his alarm goes off I just start laughing. I'm not sure if this is an improvement or not, but I do know that even if I sleep through my own alarm there is no chance I will sleep through his ever again.

We only have one alarm clock. It has 2 separate alarms so you can do 2 times, BUT we *never* set it.

Pete's my alarm clock.

We have two alarm clocks and mine has two alarms (like aunt bob's). We get more of the NPR stories that way. I miss my canine alarm clock, though. That was a much better way to start the day.

Is "Brand Names" an actual store, or is that blog code so you don't actually say the name of a real store?

Just curious ... we don't have anything called "Brand Names" here...
