No one wants to get out of a warm bed when it’s freezing. Maybe there are a few people, but no one has ever admitted it to me. So here was my solution:
1) Acquire electric blanket.
2) Acquire electric socket timer.
3) Hack electric blanket to be always on when plugged in.
4) Plug blanket into timer.
5) Set timer to turn on 30 minutes before it’s time to wake up.
Result: I wake up nice and toasty.
