Why am I up so early? All week I've fantasized about sleeping in just a little bit. I was awake before my alarm clicked. It normally goes off at 5:15 am. Even when it's turned off it makes a tiny click when it's the alarm time. Normally I wouldn't hear the click if the alarm is off. I love my alarm clock. If that is possible to love anything that wakes me up that early.

It's a Zen alarm clock from Now And Zen. Here's how they describe it:

The Zen Alarm Clock's long-resonating Tibetan bell-like chime makes waking up a beautiful experience — its progressive chimes begin your day with grace. When the Clock's alarm is triggered, the acoustic chime bar is struck just once … 3-1/2 minutes later it strikes again … chime strikes become more frequent over 10 minutes … eventually striking every 5 seconds until shut off. As they become more frequent, the gentle chimes will always wake you up — your body really doesn't need to be awakened harshly, with a Zen Clock you're awakened more gradually and thus more naturally.

I wake up at the first ding, so it sort of defeats the purpose of the gradual awakening.
