I am supposed to be on a plane right now. I'm not, I'm in my living room. Last night I packed and had everything set to go. I went to bed planning to get up around 05:30. My flight is at 09:30 - I wanted to be to Logan around 07:30 since I park out in the Economy Lot, so I figured I'd leave home around 06:30 to give myself time on the morning traffic. I knew it wouldn't be a lot of sleep, but I can sleep on the plane.

I woke up just past 10:00. I really have no recollection of my alarms going off, but they both seem to be turned *off*. So I *must* have gotten out of bed to turn the other one off. Damn it, I rarely do that kind of thing, and only when very tired or fatigued. And why the hell does it happen to screw up my plans for a fun trip and not to, say, miss half a day at work? I'm still on an adrenalin rush from waking up - I realized right away that something was seriously wrong. I might've disturbed my upstairs neighbor with the bellow of "FUCK ME!" I let loose.

There is zero availability on any of the remaining direct flights from BOS to SFO today on American, but fortunately there is availability on a connector through O'Hare. Coach on the first let, but First on the second. So I just need to let the adrenalin wear off and find my Travel Zen that I'm good at and just accept the way of things.

I am: frustrated frustrated

I've seen you do that too many times back at WPI.

I'd recommend a stout, but open/audible box to literally lock one of the alarms away such that you physically cannot get at it while still asleep.

It'd be pretty annoying for normal circumstances, but potentially useful for the times when you absolutely positively have to be up.

Not a bad idea, especially if it is something like a wire cage that is just wide enough to slip the power cord out the back, but with wires close enough together to make it hard to jab a finger in there.

Oooo! And if he doesn't shut off the alarm- the gom jabbar!

How does little Tim know about the Gom Jabar?

Have you received any medical treatment for this problem? It seems to disrupt every aspect of your life, which is quite worrisome.
