Found out a few days ago that there is a Comic Book Heroine named Squirrel Girl. Who knew?!
She’s very popular among comic book fans, but almost unknown in the real world… maybe because she hasn’t gotten her own summer blockbuster yet. There’s a photo of two cosplayers dressed as Squirrel Girl and Deadpool preparing to square off that I occasionally use as a gag on my blog…
I haven’t read any squirrel girl but i know of it, and already like it, because it’s by Ryan North – the guy that makes Dinosaur Comics and wrote a funny blog about the weird book about the first draft of Back to the Future.
Minor correction: the character wasn’t created by North, but he is behind her first series as the title character.
I always wonder why snooze buttons were invented, when they do nothing more than prolong the agony. I mean, how on earth can anybody get any useful sleep in the four minute intervals between snooze cycles? I don’t get it…
Neither do I, even after a couple people tried to justify the snooze when I did a rant about the snooze button a few years ago. Speaking of not getting any useful sleep, it’s our favorite weekend coming up! I just might reblog that great rip on DST you inspired me to write last year…. assuming I don’t schedule it to post at the non-existent time of 2:30 AM on Sunday morning!
Oh, I know! I’ve been losing sleep over DST already. At least this year, my alarm will be set for 3:30am instead of the nonexistent 2:30. The joys of not working “normal people” hours. 😛
My wife used to regularly set her alarm about an hour before she would actually get out of bed, and I’d have to listen to her alarm go off every 5 mins for an hour. I couldn’t manage to make her see reason over the issue.
Luckily we now have a small child who wakes us up every morning at about 5am and we have no choice but to get up straight away. Problem solved!
LOL, I guess that’s one way to “fix things.” I hate having to listen to the alarm go off even once, let alone (doing the math)….. 13 times in an hour! If I wake up within 5 minutes of my alarm going off (which I often do for some reason), I just get up…
I don’t need any alarm clocks any more. Well, actually, I do, sometimes. I use my computer, or my Kindle. It makes this soft little dingaling sound that as my hearing decreases, gets increasingly hard to hear. Eventually, I will only wake up when the STUPID PHONE RINGS.
Oh, those cute little soft beeping alarms are just priceless. I’m not sure who’s expected to be wakened by them. I’ve slept through nasty storms with loud thunder before… the only reason the alarm clock manages to wake me up is because the sound was taken straight out of the depths of hell…
bet it was Buster in the drawer who made that scary noises :o)))
That could be! You know possums are always looking for snacks…
We have a radio alarm clock that gets the worse FM radio reception in the world. Z-D won’t part with the thing so every morning we are awakened by Mexican fiesta music, the only station that comes in clearly-ish. That being said, both of us do not want to hear any more of this music than necessary, so we never hit the snooze alarm.
I’d like to think a loud mariachi band would wake me up, but I never had much success actually using the radio option on my alarm clock… the music would always just mix in with whatever I was dreaming about at the time. I need the unnatural sound of the actual alarm to jolt me out of a deep sleep…
I never use “snooze” – I find it easier to just get going when the alarm goes off. of course, having to shout “Alexa, stop!” across the room also makes it harder to drop off again…
I’d have a much more choice word for Alexa if she were trying to wake me up. I wonder if she was programmed to understand profanity….?
I just told her to “f-off” just to see and she said “well, thanks for the feedback”. She even sounded quite sarcastic 🙂
I expect next time I tell her to switch on a light she’ll tell me where to stick it.
As if alarm clocks aren’t bad enough, they had to invent the snooze button. Gah!!
