My trusty Blackberry doubled as my alarm clock, and most days this worked out just fine—most days. Occasionally, I subconsciously pressed the “dismiss” button rather than the “snooze” button, which resulted in panic, chaos, mismatched shoes (happened once) and something my friends and I call “hammy face.” (I know you wish I would link “hammy face” to a picture of myself, but we don’t know each other well enough yet—just think puffy and swollen eyes.)
My point is, running late is the opposite of a good time, and a back-up alarm is a great idea—especially if it runs on WATER. That’s right, I said water! I can’t claim to understand how this gadget works, but it does. My Bedol water-powered alarm clock gets my booty out of bed without batteries or a plug. Just fill it up and you’re good to go. Fantastic.
This eco-friendly potenial job saver comes in blue, charcoal, green, pink and purple, and retails for $29. Wake up—this would make a great gift for college grads, people. You snooze, you lose.
