And the Alarm Clock Conspiracy Continues…

Last Friday I finally had to succumb and purchase a new phone, after checking in with several phone repair places in the city with no success, and even HTC itself (which has many attractive repair options for Americans but basically only the most expensive and awkward one for Canadians – costing me over half the price of the phone plus postage even though...

The Search for the Perfect Morning Alarm (does it have to be that difficult?)

I am an extreme morning person who sleeps with an insomniac night owl.  I’m usually getting up just after my best beloved fallen asleep, and I go to bed  just as he’s recovering and catching his second wind after a long day at work.

Changing Your Unconscious Body-Weight Set-Point

So, still hacking…. I’m getting better at the Polyphasic sleep thing, and working to set up the right naps this week. Work will make that awkward as I don’t have the luxury of a break at any time in the workday, let alone at a specific time. Thankfully my shifts are fairly short so I can come home and have a longer afternoon nap on the two days I...
