Yeah, That's An OK Hour To Be Waking Up.

You are late-sleepy relaxation, the half-awake moment when you realize it's morning, but you don't have to get up, because there's no place you have to be. You are that cozy spot under the covers where everything feels temporarily perfect, even if you know you'll eventually have to wiggle out and start the day. Maybe you're the artistic type, who doesn't function well on a normal schedule. Sleep's important to you, and you like the freedom of sleeping as late as you want (especially since that is closely related to the freedom to stay up as late as you want). You like to roll out of bed, put on some comfy clothes, and get a laid back start to the day. If not everything on your list gets accomplished, no worries. Your only priority is having no priorities – you just want to take things at a slow, mellow pace.

OK, I don't know how accurate all of that is, but "you like to roll out of bed, put on some comfy clothes, and get a laid back start to the day" is very possibly the single truest thing any one of these stupid internet quizzes has ever said to me. If I don't get to sit around in my comfy jammies for at least an hour and a half, sipping coffee and surfing the net and waking up slowly, my whole day suffers. (Yes, it's Reason Why I Hate Morning Shifts #3!)


  1. I am 10:02AM: "You are breakfasty, like a pile of pancakes on a Sunday morning that have just the right amount of syrup, so every bite is sweet perfection and not a soppy mess. You are a glass of orange juice that's cool, refreshing, and not overly pulpy. You are the time of day that's just right for turning the pages of a newspaper, flipping through channels, or clicking around online to get a sense of how the world changed during the night. You don't want to stumble sleepily through life, so you make a real effort to wake your brain up and
    get it thinking. You feel inspired to accomplish things (whether it's
    checking something off your to-do list or changing the world), but there's plenty of time for making things happen later in the day. First, pancakes."

    Not a big fan of pancakes, actually...

    (...although my distaste for pulp *has* led me to run my orange juice thru a strainer once or twice [grin]...)

  2. Now you've made me hungry for pancakes, though. :)
