old vs. new

Finally had to break down and buy a new alarm clock. Well, I didn’t really have to, but my cell phone doesn’t really do that great of a job waking me up after a full nights half nights little bit of sleep. My old alarm clock used to do a pretty good job:
my clock - old

Considering that I bought it in 1987. Hey, check it. It’s digital! It’s has a cassette deck! It’s stereo! Not only that, but it did have two alarms, AM/FM tuner and a wicked sounding alarm that would not only wake me up, but the neighbors too!

But old ‘larmy finally died. No alarm. No Radio. No Cassette. No phone. No pool. No pets. Condsidering I only paid $40, I think that 18 years worth of service is pretty good.

Bring in …

teh new hotness!

my new clock
Check it out! CD! Snazzy LCD that I can change colors of! Auto setting! Motorized door!

It cost me $60. I hope it lasts 22 years.
