My lovely (and favorite) little sister has 'tagged me. This means that I have to attempt to be humorous while answering some inane questions...

1) Do you use an alarm clock to wake up in the morning?
Yes- and interestingly enough, up until about a week ago things were different. Until Monday I typically had no need to wake up at a certain time unless I wanted to look at my stocks (which was, indeed, usually the case). But, I would frequently wake up around 5 a.m. and stay up for a couple of hours to think about trades, check email, and generally just not get back to sleep due to frequent early morning insomnia. So, if and when I went back to sleep, I got up whenever. Many of the times I didn’t get back to sleep were those unfortunate days that news came out about one of my stocks or options and I got all excited or depressed, needed to take some sort of action, and then anxiously awaited what would happen at open.
I now have a new job which requires me to be there at 8am (and I can watch my stocks from there as it's part of my job).

2) What time do you set it for?

3) Do you hit the snooze button? If so how many times?
I would never hit the snooze button. It is one of the great all time pet peeves of mine. I have lived with over 10 people in my life (including family and roommates from college), and regularly slept in the same room with well over 15. And, almost every one of them has used the damn snooze button, or in some other way has awakened me before I believed it was time to wake up. Now, for most people this may not be of undue alarm (pardon the pun), however, as mentioned above, I have an extremely difficult time getting back to sleep. So, once someone else’s time to get that extra 10 to 50 minutes of sleep has come, I usually only have one chance to get back to sleep regardless of whether or not the other person can fall back to sleep 5 times.

4) Have you ever abused an alarm clock?
I have never abused an alarm clock. However, I may have abused someone that has continued to use the snooze when informed of the function’s proclivity to piss me off.

5) It’s “time” to spread some “It’s Blogcess” linky love.
Now comes the time that I'm supposed to "tag" some other people, but since I don’t know anyone else besides the folks from my sister’s website, I’m going to have to hunt around or send you back to my sister. Let me perform some inquiry and I’ll try to find a blog.

Why do I even bother checking every day? It must be the masochist in me...
