Alarm Clock

My alarm clock is set for 5:30 am on January 2, 2008. It did not go off this morning.

Nevertheless, I woke up promptly at 5:25. And I'm still up. And I see no hope for going back to sleep until bedtime tonight.

It is too early to make coffee, since the sound of the espresso machine will wake everybody up.

It is too early to go last-minute Christmas shopping, since none of the stores I need to go to will open until 7:00.

It is still dark out.

Not fair, I say, not fair at all.
