Yay, technology- and other randomosity.

This morning got off to an interesting start. My husband has his cell phone set to function as an alarm clock. That plays loud music. And demands answers to math problems as evidence of awakeness before one can dismiss the alarm. I felt like I was back in first grade doing speed drills or something. What the world.

Today I learned of the death of former Oregon Governor and US Senator Mark O. Hatfield. He was respected by just about everyone as a politician who actually worked for what was best for the people he served. He was also known for being able to work with members of both parties to get great things done, while standing up for his beliefs. I sure miss those kinds of politicians, because the ones we have now… Another post for another day.

  1. I also use my phone as an alarm. Well, I use a cd player alarm clock AND my phone because I am not a morning person. I have mine set to the sound of the ocean and it increases in volume the longer it takes me to wake up. I find it better than the jarring beeping of digital alarm. That isn’t the healthiest way to awake in my opinion. The math question is an interesting twist though. I don’t know if I could manage that.

    • The music is better than the default setting to me, too. My husband will open one eye and even tell everybody he is awake and then go to sleep. He needs those math problems. I’m just not sure how I feel about the music.
