- Things to Say and Do Guaranteed to Annoy Your College Roommate (also guaranteed to work on your mate, partner, or spouse)

- Set up meetings with your roommate's faculty advisor. Inquire about his/her academic potential. Take lots of notes, and then give your roommate a full report.
- Drink a raw egg for breakfast every morning. Explain that you are in training. Eat a dozen donuts every night.
- Draw a tiny, black spot on your arm. Make it bigger every day. Look at it regularly and frown.
- Bring in potential new roommates from around campus. Give them tours of the room.
- Collect potatoes. Paint faces on them and give them names. Name one after your roommate.
- Separate your roommate's potato from the others. Wait a few days, and then bake your roommate's potato and eat it. Explain that "it just didn't belong."
- Call your roommate "Clyde" by accident. Start doing so every so often. Increase the frequency over the next few weeks, until you are calling him "Clyde" all the time. If your roommate protests, say, "I'm sorry. I won't do that anymore, Murray."
- Hire a night watchman to guard your bed while you sleep.
- Move everything to one side of the room. Ask your roommate if he/she knows how much an elephant weighs, and look at the floor on the empty side of the room with concern.
- Sit in front of a chess board for hours, saying nothing, doing nothing. Then, look up and say, "I think this game goes a lot faster with two players."

The optimist claims that we are living in the best of all possible worlds.
The pessimist fears this is true.

Always make time to play in the snow.

So, what was the sound?

That reminds me the alarm I used to use in res. I looped the jingle from Meowmix commercial for 45 minutes onto mindisc, and set it to turn on whenever I had to get up. The whole 45 minutes was a bit overkill because it was so ****ing annoying that I'd most often turn it off before it had played (quite literally) 4 seconds. Highly recommended.
