This is a frivolous sort of post, but dangit, I’ve found something I really really want. And it’s bloody expensive. *ahem*
I’m a big fan of Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, be it their comedy sketches or their acting in the Jeeves and Wooster tv series. Big fan.
And I don’t like the alarm clock going off, particularly now that it means I have to get up and go to work. Especially since it’s the winter and the world is dark. Solution? Some genius came up with the Jeeves Alarm Clock. It has 50—50!!! phrases by Stephen Fry gently waking you up. Examples include
Excuse me sir, I’m so sorry to disturb you but it is morning, very inconvenient I agree. I believe it is the rotation of the earth which is to blame sir.
The world has been very anxious to hear from you for the last eight hours. Shall I inform the news agencies that you’re about to rise, sir?
(they also have a “madam version”). You can hear some of the delicious clips on their website by going into “Demo.” Unfortunately, it costs £50 or so and I just can’t afford to spend that in American. 50 USD, maybe after a few months of saving.
So we’ll see how this unfolds. Because I want it, with all the wanting I have right now. I may officially fail as a potential tertiary.
