Urgh.... this "getting up in the morning" thing's a bit of a shock to the system...
My work have just asked me to start starting at 09:30 instead of 10:00. This requires me to get up an hour earlier, because I run into a really bad law of diminishing returns on getting up earlier in the mornings to get into work earlier - the fuzzy-head confusion mounts swiftly the earlier I get up, causing everyday tasks like brushing my teeth to become apparently incredibly complex :)
Still better off than the vast majority of people with full-time jobs though, so I shouldn't complain as much as I do!
I've the opposite problem. I *hate* getting up early, but it was worth it for one reason - PARKING. Good parking is impossible to come by on this campus. So you have to get in early, which is where the Five-Ten Rule comes in: For every five minutes later you leave the house, it takes ten more minutes to fight through the traffic and get oncampus.
'course, now that firstborn is public-schooled in the mornings, I'm stuck getting to work later 'cause I'm driving her to school. Sigh.

Oh, that sounds familiar.
The ONE nice thing about Microsoft...they are civilized.
My day starts at 10:00am. When things are quiet (as they are now), I can get away with 10:30 or 10:45...
Of course, then the end of my day runs between 7pm and 8pm. I still think this is a decent compromise if I go to bed between 12am and 2am. I don't mind this, myself, though it's considered a "late" shift.
(and when the crunch is on? 9-10am to 9-10pm for me personally. no life left to speak of.) ;)
