Tring Tring !!!








This was something I created just now , for fun ... was trying out how good my alarm ... errr !! ..... my adobe photoshop could get ...

The pic looks kinda bad , but was just a trial run .




It actually kinda looks like my alarm which blasts its head off every morning.
I have a bad history with alarm clocks .... in 12th , my tution class was at 6:00 am ,

and the sir would leave his dog - a huge German shepherd - out at 5:55 am ... leaving us with the only option of entering before 5:55 ... yeah , bunking was an option .. but we'd have to face him some day or the other .. so , why increase our bad marks ??
Anyway, to get there by 5:55 , i would have to get up atleast by 4:30 , so that i could finish off my ' 5 mins ' of sleep and my abulations.For this , i was wholly dependent on my alarm clock.
Entrance exams saw me wake up at all odd hours to study ... This is when i started respecting my alarm clock.

Then came college . ... study hols invariably consisted of getting up at 7:00 , waking up every sleeping soul in class in a need to get hold of the syllabus as well as the portions needed for the exam.
Now , at work ... suffice it is to say that i cant get to office without the aid of my clock ..People wonder about my punctuality ( hic !~! ) , but i never tell them my secret !!!
I have now come to the realisation that I am lost without my alarm clock


P.S : i have lost count of how many alarm clocks i have adopted till now.

Sujit said...

Nice clock.. well thats good that you atleast get up when the aram rings and study and be puntual. During college days it was fine.. I used get up earlier than alarm.. But now.. either i never wake up to the alarm or if i wake up.. will give a puch to it for stopping and agin go to sleep. After getting i think why did i keep the alarm?.... and in the night beofre sleep.. i have to wake up early.. quite funny..

Jithu said...

i had a loyal alarm clock for quite long a period. but in the last series exam of my engg days, i took it to the exam hall to set it off 30 mts after the exam. the prof. confiscated it and i lost it. i guess it serves the prof. now :-(

Keshi said...

A sweet tribute to that b###h of an alarm clock..lol...


I have a history with it too Deepz...a very violent one tho...hehe. That extra 5mins I wanna sleep is like heaven so I have shut the alarm clock face-down and cursed at it countless times too...but yeah I still need it to get me a pay for living...lol!

i simply hate to wake up in the morning, n m more off a night bug.
so even if the exam is at 10 i will put the alarm of 8 30 n then have a bath n go..
lol i still cant remember me ever wakin up at 7, let alone 4.. :)

Shikha said...

I had a clock which could wake up the entire hostel..And during exams i used to have 5 minute naps while studying for which i relied only on my alarm clock..i'm lucky no one killed me for pulling out that stunt of a 'fire alarm' every 5 minutes just hours before the exam

>|' ; '| said...

heh...ur alarm looks scary!

i've many alarm clocks till date. i have managed to wreck all of them. my friend kickassso had the loudest alarm of them all. he had rigged his sound system to blast 'we will rock you' at full volume instead of just the alarm ring! i use my cell fone alarm these days cos i totally and completely adore its snooze function!!! :)

rebel_on_loose said...

Hey it's amazing how sumthing like an alarm clock can bring out lost memories! I've been scheduling an alarm on my winamp at my bedside for 5 years now,every morning with the same song! It's called "Dream On" by Aerosmith, and i still love 2 hear it 1st thing in the morning.
Nice blog by the way,

Jithu said...

oh v purposefully set it coz it's our last engg exam! to drive all those geeks writing the exam away from the exam hall and to annoy the prof. he he.. bt yeah i lost it :-(

Invincible said...

Cell phone's alarm with 'snooze' is the best friend a bachelor can ever ask for when it comes to waking up at odd hrs.
I remember how i used to rely on it on Sat mornings to catch 7.00 am train.

I used to adore my alarm clock in school in college, cos it never ditched me even when i used to summon it to wake me up at 1.30 am or 5.13 am .. any odd bizarre time of the night :)

tc girl..

sonu said...

i have updated mam.. n wot about u??

Jigal.. said...

hi

well my alarm is me.....

i never ever want an alarm to get up..

i always decide the time in my mind at which i wanna get up and magically my eyes r open bfore 5 mins of that time...

amazing na???

bye

take care..

tulipspeaks said...

u know, i have very funny experiences with alarm clocks...for eg., i tend to wake up at least 10min before the time i set, take a look at the clock & change it alarm to ring 10mins later..and go back to sleep..lolz..

My alarm is in my neighbour's house. He wakes up the whole city at 5:00 am with the 'sweet' voice he sings..... Can any1 tel me the solution? I hate singers with irritating voice..

silverine said...

I never owned an alarm clock till today. I just get up on time. Its an enduring mystery in my house lol. But when I need to get up very early , say when we are driving out of town I def need an alarm clock to get up at weird hours like 5:30 am.

And by gosh!!! I can never imagine getting up at 4:30 for tuitions !!! Thank god I didn't do engineering!
