Good Morning, Madam

     I am so not a morning person.  If I could I would sleep until 10:00 every day.  And I have been known (on occasion) to be a little bit grumpy in the morning.

     One thing that makes mornings just a little bit easier is my Butler Alarm Clock.  This is no ordinary, run-of-the-mill alarm clock.  No.  This alarm clock wakes me with the gentle sound of birdsong.  Then, a discreet cough, and a soft "Good Morning, Madam" (the voice of the much-loved English actor Stephen Fry.)  This is followed by charming, funny wake-up messages such as, "The world has been very anxious to hear from you for the last eight hours. Shall I inform the news agencies you are about to rise?"

Today's Photo-a-Day Challenge: Bedside

     It's pretty silly.  Which makes it hard to wake up too terribly grumpy.  And there are 125 different messages so each morning after you hear the little cough, you wait to see what that morning's phrase will be.
     Here is another example: "It appears to be morning.  Very inconvenient, I agree.  I believe it is the rotation of the earth that is to blame, madam."  To hear some of these for yourself, you can follow this link then click any of the 6 red buttons to hear some samples.  (And in case you were wondering, I also have a digital clock on my nightstand so that I can see the time when it's dark.)
     So, until the kids are all off to college and I can sleep late every morning, I'll just have to make due with my very own Jeeves.    
     Now, if you'll pardon me, I have other matters that require my attention.  It has been delightful chatting with you.  Good day.


  1. Elegant ... a classic start to the day :)

  2. That sounds like such a fun alarm clock! I love it!!

  3. What a cool alarm clock. As a fellow non-morning-person, I've already hinted at the other half that a clock like that would be an ideal gift for me should they be stuck for ideas at any time! Subtlety is also one of my characteristics....LOL.

  4. Do you still have this clock?
