Seeing that it's morning here and I'm WELL bored out of my mind, the idea came to me while making breakfast
I realise there has probably been a thread like this, but it's most likely ages ago, so here's the update
What's your morning ritual?. In other words, what do you do in the morning from the time you get out of bed, till you're at work?
6:00 AM: Alarm goes off. I get out of bed. 6:00-6:30: Shower. 6:30-7:00: Making breakfast, eating breakfast, watching TV. 7:00-7:45: Give animals breakfast, walk dogs, empty kitty- and ferret-litterbox. 7:45-7:59: walk to busstop. Bus leaves at 7:59. 7:59-8:20: Busride to trainstation. 8:20-8:30: Shopping in the station cafeteria for lunch. Train leaves at 8:30. 8:30-9:05: Train ride to the station near school. Walk to busstop. Bus leaves at 9:05. 9:05-9:15: Bus leaves and arrives at 9:05, at a busstop, 10 minutes of walking from school. 9:15-9:30: Walk to school. 9:30: Class starts.
The weekends are the same, apart from the alarm clock (which won't be on) and the leaving for school

7:00 am - radio goes off. I listen to the morning show, still half asleep.
7:30-8:00 - shower
8:00-9:00 - breakfast, wash the dishes, clean the kitchen
9:00 and afterwards - clean the house and other various chores
As of Monday:
5:00 am - alarm goes off
5:10 am - I get up
5:10-5:30 - get dressed
5:30-5:40 - breakfast
5:40-5:50 - brush teeth, get ready to leave
5:50-6:00 - walk to bus stop
6:00-8:00 - get stuck in traffic till I arrive at work
The traffic part sucks, but since I finally got the job I wanted, I'll be willing to endure it.
Don't expect to see me around that much (if at all) -- the contact link should still work, though.

Since my class schedule varies by day, I'll format mine slightly differently:
Time to first class:
T - 2 hrs. - First alarm goes off, I wake up, still groggy
T - 1:55 hrs. - Last alarm goes off, my signal to get out of bed...then I go surf the web, check email, etc.
T- 1:15 hrs. - Breakfast
T - 1 hr. -Shower, brush teeth, get dressed
T- 30 mins -Leave and walk across street to bus stop
T- 20 mins -Bus theoretically should arrive
T- 10 mins - Arrive on campus and walk to class
T- 0 mins - Some boring class lecture starts...

0400: Go to bed after getting home late, set alarm for 1100, plan to get approx 5 things done in the morning
1100: Alarm goes off, decide that 2 of those things aren't really that important to do, reset alarm for 1200.
1200: Alarm goes off again, determine another thing on the list that wasn't really important, reset alarm for 1230.
1230: Alarm goes off again, decide, oh what the hell, I'm not gonna accomplish anything before work, I'll do it when I get home for work, reset alarm for 1330.
1330: Wake up sheepishly, go over to recliner or computer, mess around with tv, computer, or both:
1530: Cook something grossly unhealthy in the microwave, eat up in 20 minutes while watching tv.
1550: Jump in the shower, try to be done with clean up process by 1605 so that I don't have to race to get to work on time.
1610: Just got done shaving, bitter at myself for not getting this done sooner, rush to put on clothes.
1612: Out the door for my anticipated 18 minute drive to work.
1625: Run from parking garage to clock in point after 2 of the 3 traffic lights I have to go through screw me.
0130: Return home from work, decide I'm too tired to get any of those things done, watch tv (mostly shows I recorded while I was at work), fix a snack, go to bed around 0400. Repeat routine.

Wake up between 10 and 11, skipping lunch as again. Spend more time at Airliners, refuse to do any work.

Sometime between 3AM to 10AM - Wake up and remove pussy from appendage.
Then - Turn on TV. Prior to 6AM tune to Imus on MSNBC, after 6AM tune to some nonsense on morning television.
A few minutes later - Lift lid on laptop, see who's on iChat.
Then - Make tea and take pills. Think about treating myself to a valium.
Then - Brush pussy if he's not decided to go off doing cat things.
Then - Make breakfast. Current favorites: Oatmeal or French Toast.
Then - Drink tea while surfing Non-Av, making smarmy remarks as necessary. (This may take a while.) Check pulse of a.net on 'whiners. Decide if it's worthwhile to wade through Civ-Av in-between all the new threads about DL, B6 and PTVs. (Funny how this hasn't changed one bit since the last Morning Ritual thread.)
9AM - CNN International
10AM - Tune to Channel 6 for The Price Is Right.
11AM - Tune to Channel 8 for Live with Regis and Kelly.
12 Noon - CNN news
Meanwhile - Listen to people whine about work on iChat. Make growling noises at pussy while he tries to sit on the bed between me and the laptop. Check funny links people have sent me. Check gay Russian website for new things to download. Scroll through blogs of friends, see if there's anything I should IM them about. Cruise through IHT online. Make phone calls. Check e-mail. Do paperwork as necessary.
Then - Take shower. Take another round of painkillers. If I'm staying in, have lunch and move to sofa to continue surfing, IMing, and watching TV.
Afternoon - Variable. Perhaps go out to lunch, do shopping, go visit the doctor, harass the rental office about some nonsense, or check to see if anyone's on MSN.
6PM - Think about dinner. Have cocktails instead. Current favorites: Campari with orange juice or Peach Schnapps with cranberry juice.
8-9PM - Actually have dinner while watching something on TV. Listen to people ask how I can eat so late.
11PM - Take evening painkillers, think about treating myself to a valium. Move to bed, greet friends from the UK and Europe on iChat before they go off to work. Throw things from the bed to see if pussy will chase them if he's not doing a round of Kitty Rips or Happy Cat Dancing.

It all varies so much. Usually:
15 minutes before tutorial: Wake up drunk
10 minutes before tutorial: Look at clock and groan
9 minutes before tutorial: Put on whatever clothes are in reach
7 minutes before tutorial: Eat. Anything. And drink water lots. And take paracetamol.
5 minutes before tutorial: Clean teeth. Realise you look like a tramp. Think it doesn't matter, at least you're not as ugly as the tutor.
2 minutes before tutorial: Find the essay. HAVE to find the essay amongst all the crap in the room!
1 minute after tutorial starts: Run to tutor's room. Stagger in late, drunk, clutching a pile of crumpled papers, looking like you slept in a doorway, stinking of booze and about to fall asleep.
