Also, I have a new CD-playing alarm clock, since I kept sleeping through my old one. I actually bought it a few weeks ago with tax money, but I've been so unfocused I didn't read the instructions until last night. I put in the first disc of 50,000 Fall Fans Can't Be Wrong
and set the alarm for early (for me, especially as I was up late working), and then forgot about it.
Until I was awoken by Mark E. Smith yelling "RIGHT, NOISE!" directly in my ear at far too loud a volume. Genuinely one of the more terrifying moments I've ever experienced (lucky me, I know), especially when waking. I turned the volume down a bit, but I also think I'm going to switch CDs.
