Wake up to Jeeves with the Voco Clock

The last few days I've been reminiscing about Jeeves and Wooster, (both the books by P.G. Wodehouse and the series starring Hugh Laurie (Dr. House) and Stephen Fry).

It all started last week when I saw the Woodhouse sofa on the Jonathan Adler site, progressed to an unsuccessful attempt to locate my copy of a book of Wodehouse short stories yesterday, and culminated in a link to the Voco clock popping into my in-box a few minutes ago.

The Voco lets you rise and shine to the sound of Stephen Fry as the put-upon, too-smart butler, Jeeves, issuing very encouraging and ever-so-slightly sarcastic summons to take on your day.

If you enjoy the sound clips (hear them here) but want to skip the clock (it's nothing special at about $50), you can download all 50 wake-up greetings for about $14.

If you haven't seen Jeeves and Wooster or read anything by Wodehouse, they would make wonderful additions to your summer reading/watching list.

Thanks to my friend, Pablo, for the tip.
