The Saffies around might have heard rather an amusing advert for a certain coffee and muffin outlet. It ends with the statement that they can serve all needs, both the rise and shiner and morning whiner.

What are you?

Lets have a bit of fun.

In Kruger, most of us are possibly rise and shiners, but maybe not all. :hmz:

I tend to get up before the birds, so by 4 pm I am a grumpy git. At six, I am half human again.

Always a rise and shiner, tend to have a mid-afternoon low and TV is the best sleep medicine yet discovered :roll:

But - when I wake up in front of the goggle box, I,m ready to go again :wink:

I tend to agree Billy :wink:

Anything to do with statistics sends me to sleep in an instant.

I ALWAYS RISE early but am not always a shiner :evil: unlike my SO and LO they could sleep until midday and then some more, if we have to be somewhere by 6am, I have to start the waking up process at 4.30am because waking them up is like trying to wake up the dead :shock: :shock:

For me it depends on what is happening! Sometimes it is "I'll rise but I refuse to shine" and other times I am chomping at the bit ready to go.....

You are in a special category :tongue:
a 'twiner' it is an inbetweener :thumbs_up:
I would classify myself here as well as I don't wake early myslef (need a alarm for that but I don't whine about it I get out of bed, put the kettle on and then go shower) :hmz:

I'm a morning whiner normally, but coffee helps. :) On vacation where animals wait for no man, I'm up early!
