    I'm getting up at the insane time of 5am now now because my shift times have changed to a 6am start. It's a nightmare, it's still pitch dark walking to work, plus it's freezing most mornings now. The hard part is trying to get to bed at a proper time in order to feel refreshed for the next day but I'm so used to going to bed late, as my shift times used to start in the evening. It's proving very difficult.

    Anyone else get up at silly hours for work?

    I get up at 6am, it's cold and dark outside, and I end up going to bed much earlier than I'm used to (and miss out on multiplayer gaming goodness), or else I'm wrecked in the morning. All for a job I really don't want, hurrah!

    5.45am.

    It doesn't help that my commute to work is about an hour.

    6am. My commute is also about an hour, sometimes more dependant on traffic.

    5.50am with a 35 minute commute for an 8.15am start. I have flexi tho, so it's malleable.

    8.10 - I start at 8.30-9 and it takes me no more than 8 minutes to walk to work :)

    Oh the joys of non-London commuting work :)

    Sometimes I wake up in the morning and play xbox in bed, then have a wank, then wash my hands and play more xbox, all before getting up.

    Alarm goes off of 7:10, usually give up on snoozes about 20 mins after that

    takes me between 10-25 minutes to get to work, depending if I take my bike or not

    Get to eat breakfast at work though (they provide bowls and milk and stuff so cereal at desk while checking emails much of the time :)

    Today I woke up mentally around 5pm however.

    Up at 5am this week to start at 7.30am. Set out at 5.55am to get 1st bus at 6.15am. It's cold, dark and tiring. All for a job I took after being made redundant. Now working more hours and travelling an extra 1.5 hours a day for a lot less money with zero job satisfaction. Oh joy....

    6.30am twice a week, when I feel like the rest of the time! Tho I have had to get up at 4.30am recently, didn't like that at all.

    Oh, of course, I forgot where you work. Where do you fly to/from out of interest? And what exactly do you do again? I've been getting interested in the EC from uni lectures recently, maybe thinking of doing something there in the back of my mind.

    Varies on the season. Sometimes I'll get up around 8ish others around noon.

    I set my alarm for 6:51am - but lately I haven't been getting up until about 7:40 - which leaves me only a few minutes to get my cycling gear on and my arse out of the door.

    My alarms start going off around 07:15, and then I get up at 07:45 to leave the house at 08:15.
