Alas and alack!
The ebullience of her voice
ringing in the morn
like a flock of birds singing
brought pillow over his ears.

(I occasionally post to a word of the day thread on a forum I hang out on...the word was ebullience - reminded me of how a friend of mine just didn't deal well with how bubbly and chatty I can be first thing in the morning.....Once again, I fall back on my beloved tanka verse form.)

Yep, I'm one of those wicked evil people. First thing I do in the morning is come into the computer room, curse the machine for being slow because it was in go to sleep mode, then start reading and replying...an hour or two later, I make coffee...

My grandma couldn't even see straight without two cups of coffee first thing....LOL...

I have to try and be a morning person since I'm supposed to be at work at 8:00 every morning. However, if it were up to me, I'd be up most of the night, and sleep until about noon... or later.

I liked the part about the pillow over his ears...

Well, for a long time I was a wake up at 5:30 person...but now I seem to wake up at 9 or 10...but I am still alert fast whatever my morning time is. For 6 years or so, I got to college at 6:50 in the morning, had coffee and breakfast and gossip, and for a lot of those years, I opened up a tutoring facility at 8 am.

Some people have to be awake two hours and have drunk a pot of coffee before you can even get them to say hello....

I do feel better after I've had my diet Coke, but I have to wake up pretty fast since I drive 30 minutes to work, and my phone usually is ringing shortly after I get there.

Yeah, I've known people that had to sit around and drink coffee and read th paper and whatever to wake up. I just have to roll out of bed and get going.

ack! morning person! i have to be up at 5:30-sh now (i say ish cause snooze gets hit, i can't help it) and i have to be cheerful enought ot check in patients at seven. i'm usually as out of it as they are! and i think i'm coming down with a cold from the shift in routine!

sadly, i'm like your gram. no matter how much of the coffee laden goodness i consume, my brain will only catch up when it wants to. and some days, it doesn't want to!
