I’m going to have to find a new way to wake up

My iPhone is my alarm clock. My ringtone is a snip from The Pixies “No. 13 Baby”. When I use the clock app as alarm, it also vibrates. But the vibration starts about half a second before the Joey Santiago guitar bit. So, Buzz. Shred. Wake. And then it occurred to me that the sound of my electric toothbrush is in the same key as “No. 13 Baby” – go to 2:28 in the video and let it play for a few seconds.

I’m sure that all sounds completely insane, but there you have it. I think I need to find a new way to wake up.
