Taken from Modern Shadows' LJ, and she, of course, got it from someone else (who I've linked to) but! the question put to the audience is: what is your perfect morning ritual?
I'm not a morning person, really, but the wakeup ritual that I enjoy goes thusly:
8-10am, realize I'm gaining consciousness. Enjoy sleeping if the heat is on-the low roar the heater makes in our house has a soothing effect on me. Either way, some kind of lucid dreaming happens.
Lay in bed, stretching. Get up.
Shower. Shave as needed.
Turn on whatever loud music I feel is good; begin to destroy the universe.
