In Other News – 27 May, 2015

2 min read


Waking up is really hard. Unless it’s accompanied with oral sex, fresh coffee or bacon and eggs in bed, getting out bed is tough. It’s made a little easier if your olfactory nerves are tickled by pleasant aromas, preferably of baked goods and warm, enticing vanilla. Beyond programming a timed coffee machine, or a bread maker though, that’s unlikely to happen, enter the SensorWake. Yes, it’s an alarm clock that wakes you up to your favourite scents.

“We believe that everyone should wake up happy, relaxed and peaceful, empowered for adventures to come. Happiness lies in the little things, like a great morning, a smell we like, a memory it recalls, a smile it evokes… Together let’s make sure this happens every day!” If you’re the hippy-dippy sort, this very probably could start our day off right. Me? I’d prefer the oral sex.

    Thanks for reminding me that I have to get up fucking early tomorrow morning with no actual fucking involved. Or fresh coffee. Or bacon & eggs. O_o

      I get up at 5 myself. Doesn’t help to have a job that I hate.

        Tomorrow I’m going to be at work before you wake up. ;P

          Wow. That’s crazy. Okay, you have my sympathies..

            Maybe I’ll be lucky & get to go home early. Oh optimism, I miss you so.

            That sucks a lot. I assume early flight. If that is the case, then yeah, no real chance of going home early. I am tempted, will see how it goes, to fly to the coast tomorrow after noon late, have a meeting and then fly back. Will see if that is whats needed. That should put the wife in a good mood for the weekend

      Well, the bacon, eggs and fresh coffee you can arrange yourself. Just get creative, organise a little and I am sure it can happen.

      I suppose you do not want to get out of bed?
      move your oven into the bedroom, within reach from where you sleep, set the timer (um, yeah) to start for 30 minutes before you need to be up, prepare bacon in the oven, under the grill.

      Get cheap kettle (no on / off switch), full with water, leave lid open. Put near open window. Add two to three eggs. Put on wall plug timer for about 15 minutes into your bacon cooking. Timer off after six minutes, assume 1 minute to start the water boiling.

      Coffee is much easier, filter coffee machine with timer.

        I really hope this idea doesn’t result in any fires.

          I’m not sure how my wife would feel about a kitchen in the bedroom. She might take offense.

          What, like I think of practical things like that?. Besides, I do not drink coffee, so there goes a huge danger right there.

      Seeing as how you got the reference, I can see you are still in the honeymoon phase…

    I came to hate the sound of my alarm in the mornings more than I have hated anything before or since.
    Now imagine that happening to the smell of bacon.
