at 9am, i woke to discover the alarm clock in my guest bedroom going off. this was confusing for a variety of reasons. it has the same annoying electronic beeeepbeeeepbeeeepbeeeepbeeeep noise as my own regular alarm, so when i initially rolled over, i was groggily wondering why on earth i would have stuffed my clock under a pillow, zipped it up in a duffel bag, cushioned it with towels, and then thrown it into the closet. after confirming that my clock was indeed in the same location it has been for, oh, the past five or six years, i then marvelled at how very LOUD my neighbor's alarm was and my goodness, was she ever going to turn it off? finally i realized the alarm was COMING FROM INSIDE THE HOUSE. in the next room, to be exact. my parents and aunt were here a couple of weeks ago, and apparently my dad never turned off the alarm in that bedroom. and, well, i was gone that following weekend, and i'm out the door by 8am during the week. which means that alarm has been going off at 9am FOR TEN DAYS. i'm just glad that room is so very far away from the wall i share with my neighbor.

in other news, i was on the phone with kt tonight, and remarking on my then-current attire.
me: i look like i'm going to rob a bank.
kt: ...
me: well... i've got on black cords, and a black t-shirt. i had my white shirt on over it before, but now, i don't, and... i look like... a ninja.
kt: the niña, the pinta, and the ninja maria!

black attire is good.

crap... each morning this annoying beeping has been waking me up. Seeing I only work 1 day a week, I sleep in usually until 11.

or not.

Dont worry Maria those things only beep for like 2...mabye 3...no more than four hours before they shut themselves off. You probably did minimal psycological damage to the nieborhood pets. And if any of them where cats it was a favor to humanity

So you are a beep alarm person huh? I think the beep alarms are too shrill and piercing and they make me cranky for the rest of the day. I like to wake to gentle music.

OOH, I get sooo mad when my roommate leaves his on like that. Or when he sets it to go off at 8PM instead of AM or something. But that may just be because he makes me mad in general.
