Monday Moments

The other day we got a Sharper Image catalog in the mail (couldn't tell you how we got on THAT mailing list) Anyway, I was looking at all of the gadgets and gizmos and this clock caught my eye. You'll see from the picturet that ahem...."Clocky" (you really shouldn't name your alarm clock, by the way)comes fully equipped with wheels. Here is the description of Clocky from the magazine and website...

Clocky® is the alarm clock that runs away and hides to make sure there is no chance you won't wake up!
After you hit the snooze button, Clocky rolls off your nightstand and wheels randomly around the bedroom, looking for a hiding place.
After one to 9 minutes (your choice), Clocky's alarm goes off again — and it won't turn off until you get out of bed and find him!

My dear internets, I laid my head down on the table and laughed so hard I cried. I suddenly had thoughts of my husband running around in the morning chasing dear-ol-clocky with a baseball bat. Let's just say that a gift such as this would not be considered a gift of love in the Smith family - we are NOT exactly morning people (except for Lorelin...a trait she obviously got from my Mom, the orginal perky morning person)

I hope you get a kick of this alarm clock as much as I did (speaking of kicking, I wonder how far Clocky would fly when my foot finally found the alarm hiding under the bed..hypothetically speaking, of course...)

Marvelous Monday to you all!!!!

P.S. Who thinks of this stuff like this??

what a horrible thing... to have to chase after a clock... :>[)
... he he he... sorry makes me laugh.
The next thing we need is a bed mattress with springs that will fling us out of bed... literally throw us out of bed... that would actually be funny to see... well... more preposterous really...

Your sis in law that loves you lots!

That is so hysterical!! While Steve and I were on the plane to Dallas a couple of weeks ago we saw this item in SkyMall. I commented to Steve that this is something I desperately need!! As ridiculous as it is, it is perfect for someone like me who hits the snooze button 3-4 times!!!

THAT alarm clock is really funny.
Although, you telling the story is even funnier!!!
I'm one of those morning people, but Jeff - FAR from it. Makes me laugh to picture what he would do with a clock like that!
Bright and Early Morning to YOU ya,

Oh, goodness, Drew needs that thing. I, too, can only picture the carnage that would result. Yikes. I want the job of thinking up stuff like that to take people's money!! Thanks for sharing--you tell the best stories!! Happy Thanksgiving--I'm so thankful for YOU!

If anyone EVER purchases me such gift, it will be re-gifted. :)

LOL at YOU and all the comments! :) What a concept for an alarm clock! Can't say I am in need of one as Victoria is my alarm clock. :) But that would have been perfect in high school when I slept in the basement and my room was oh so cozy and dark! Waking up to be on time for school was not a big motivator to get out of bed most mornings! This alarm clock would have driven me nuts but been perfect.
Love to you!!!!!

I admit it....I put your name on the Sharper Image mailing list so that you could wonder at these things....
