When getting enough sleep isn't an option, what are some ways to get your butt out of bed in the morning?

I have had SUCH trouble lately, even when I get 6 hours of sleep. I'll hit snooze for at least 30 min before I can manage to get out of bed for class, and then I have to get ready in 10 minutes. . .

And tonight I'm working on a paper that's due earrrrrly tomorrow, and my stupid comp just lost it before I had a chance to save. So it doesn't look like I'm getting to bed soon. But I DO have to get up early.

Any suggestions?

Heres a brave question - how does the rest of the world view Britain?
All business men in bowler hats, old ladies in tea rooms...what?

I'd really hate to think what stereotypes of England and the English there are, although often I find great amusement explaining Geordies to people who think English are all like the late Queen mother.
We have stereotypes of other countries of course, take America for example - of American culture we have for examples - Jerry Springer, Cops and Baywatch (an old one but it stuck) - so you can imagine how a lot of English see Americans, and of course that is just stereotyping.
So English, what are we?

A few weeks ago I there was a free trial for a voiceblog somewhere. Where people could record themselves talking and you could listen. Does anyone know the link?

An Englishman in New York... (Or: survival in America). [Sep. 12th, 2003|02:38 pm]

[music |Radiohead - Electioneering]

So, I'm not actually English, and I'm not going to New York. In fact, I'm Scottish and going to Fort Worth, Texas.

I've never travelled by plane before, and never been abroad before, so I'm understandably terrified by the entire thing. :o)

Does anyone have any particular advice they could give me? I've gone into all sorts of gory details in a post in my journal, but to save people I'll summarise: I'm flying from Edinburgh to Frankfurt, then Frankfurt to Chicago O'Hare, then O'Hare to DFW. On the way back it's direct from DFW to Frankfurt, then an eight hour wait, then a flight to Edinburgh. O'Hare is scaring me already - any survival tips? Anyone with any ideas on how to kill eight hours in the transit section of Frankfurt? Could I leave that if I went through German immigration?

When I'm in the US, what will I need to prove that I'm over 21? I'd rather not carry my passport around with me - will a copy be fine? I've got an ISIC card... will anyone accept that?

Will I be allowed to take glass bottles onto the plane? I want to take the people I'm staying with a bottle of Scotch, and a bottle of Irn Bru...

Am I likely to have any trouble getting into the country on a visa wavier?

Umm. I think that's it. Thanks to anyone who helps me out with this stuff. :o)

[music |Various Artists - Virgin Voices II - 14 - Bigod 20 - Like a Prayer]

I've listened to this song for a few times in a row, because I find it very amusing. Imagine angry German guys singing Madonna's "Like a Prayer" to industrial music. It's so campy! I think Ben Folds does a pretty good cover of Elton John's "Tiny Dancer." Johnny Cash *snif* did an interesting cover of NIN's "Hurt." Rod Stewart, on the other hand, needs to be drawn and quartered for murdering "Downtown Train."

Anyways, what are some other covers that are either good or really bad?
