Gee, where do you get the time? My alarm goes at 6:50 and at 7:10 I'm out the door. I don't wake up until 8:00.

Get up at 5 am. Shower, shave. Work on physics stuff, either for work, or on my own stuff. Get breakfast for my eight-year-old daughter and make/pack lunch for myself. (Wife doesn't trust me to make a nutritious lunch for daughter, so she makes that.). Daughter and I leave our place at 7:15 , walk to coffee shop (even when it is -25C), and arrive at 7:40. Have tea and a cheese croissant. Leave coffee shop at 8:15, and walk daughter to school. Walk to to bus stop, catch bus, and arrive at work at 8:50.

Up at 4:45 on workdays. Make two cups of very nice coffee, read the news for a while while I drink them. Iron clothes, shower, pack my workout bag if I'm going to the gym that day. Out the door by 6:15 or so for a long commute to work. Eat breakfast at work, usually cereal.

Weekends: usually up by 6:00. Same two cups of coffee and news-reading, but a bit more lazy after that ;).

I never have breakfast at home on work days, I need time to wake up properly before eating ;)

there's only about 6km between home and work and if traffic isn't too bad about a 7 +- 1minute trip

just do a standard 8 hr day, don't get any thanks if I worked any longer

Man you guys are up early...

I usually wake around between 9:00-10:00. First thing I do when I get out of bed is pushups (about 120 over three sets), then I cook/eat breakfast and usually get to my office around 11:00.

I don't think I'll ever be able to deal with a 9:00-5:00 job where I can't set my own schedule.

I don't do mornings.
To be technical, I don't have mornings, let alone do them. I keep a cat-like schedule, based upon an approximately 34-hour cycle. Although I have to sleep anywhere from 10—16 hours per 24, it's never for more than 4 or 5 maximum at a go. Usually more like 2 or 3. My extended periods of wakefulness are just for eating or bathroom activities, and I watch TV and do my computer stuff during and on both sides of that time. If you've ever wondered why I'm constantly switching between logged in and logged out, or logged in but non-responsive, that's why. Sometimes I fall asleep or have a bathroom emergency without shutting down PF.

It's the same for me. I am up right now because i had to lie down earlier and fell asleep for several hours.

Damn! That means that we can never actually be lovers. Neither one of us could stay awake long enough. :(

My official morning routine, if I had to put in on a medical questionnaire, is:
Open one eye.
If there's nothing within reach to eat or have sex with, close eye.
Repeat 2 hours later.

Lately my routine has been
Wake up between 5.30 - 6.30am. Make my bed, turn laptop on. Take domperidone and lorazepam, do dishes. Then go to my laptop and check Facebook, PhysOrg, Gmail + ISP address emails, log into PF chat. Once finish coffee, dry dishes and put away. Then have a shower. Put washing on. Go back to my laptop and wait for Evo to come on.

10.25 - have breakfast and watch Jeremy Kyle on ITV 1 plus 1
Jeremy Kyle USA edition is on between 12.30 - 2.30pm on TV2 in New Zealand. Jordan (my half brother) and I have a habit of watching it, although at 2pm I switch over to Parliament TV to watch Parliament live (if its sitting).

Up at five

Walk dogs

Work at 6 am

Snack a little each hour (lettuce, cherry tomatoes, peppers, Greek yogurt)

Take a short walk at 12noon

Go home at 2:30pm or thereabouts...

Why? To avoid heavy traffic on local roads at 7-9am and 3-7pm.

Bodily functions as needed...

PF posts as needed...

Browse Internet randomly or work related, watch YouTube documentaries if interesting...

Wake up at 08:00 from the alarm clock, then give up and go back to sleep. By the time I get up it's no longer morning.

You do realize that 2 of those steps can be skipped, right?

A big glass of milk coffee, going to a swimming pool for 1 and a half hour, then breakfast (I can't eat dry stuff i.e bread, sandwich alone; there must be soup) :D. Go to work.
I guess in my pre-existence, I was probably a fish or a dragon, ok worse, a water worm
