A Random Wednesday Conversation Starter

I've set this post to publish at about the same time I'm getting up today: 3:00 am. This is because of a bunch of jobs at The Store that need doing, which have to be done very early before the associated departments start doing their thing (i.e., before they start handling food). The extra money associated with the overtime will be nice, but 3:00 am is just an awful time to get up.

So: what's the earliest you can get up where you're not thinking along the lines of, "Oh crap, I'm up now. Ugh ugh ugh."?

4:20, an hour before I normally get up anyway. (Yet this morning, i'm awake at 2:40!)

You are going to hate me for saying this but I can't remember a time when I actually had to get up at a specific time. Not in the last two years anyways. I sleep when I am tired and eat when I am hungry and basically am like Hemmingway with only one cat and none of the issues with booze. Okay I did have to go see a doctor a few times and get some blood tests done and that stressed me out but I can pretty much go months without having to get up if I don't want to. If it helps I hate myself for saying that.

Around 7:00 am. 6:30 am seems to be the magic moment for m, I can't get up pretty well after that. Any earlier and I tend to run on autopilot.
If I know that I can go to bed later on if I want to, I have no problems with getting up much earlier, though.

Anything before 8:30 blows. If I've been working late at my second job (poker) the night before, 10:00.

I normally wake up between 6:00 and 6:30, which is a lot nicer when I don't have to wake up that early. I used to have to wake up at 6:30 to go to work and it felt horrible. Now, I simply wake up that early - no alarm clock - more or less "bright-eyed and bushy-tailed."

I like to be out of bed by 5:30am Gives me some time on here with my cup of coffee.

Like Kal (above) I can follow my own inner clock (this is after nearly 30 years of punching the time clock though, so don't hit me!). I hardly ever get to bed before 4:00 a.m. and I don't need more than 4 or 5 hours of sleep, so I guess getting up at 7:00 would be a drag. I do it when I have to take Lynette to work so that I can have the car--and I don't like that one bit.

Anytime in the middle of the night is fine with me, if: 1) the baby goes back to sleep after his feeding and 2) I go back to sleep after his feeding.

If not, anything before 6am blows.
