Finally realized that it was the bedroom smoke detector. I had fallen asleep several hours ago (subsequently missing dinner!) with some candles burning. The smoke was just enough to set off the detector- good to know it works! By the time I climbed onto a desk to reset/disable the alarm, it stopped.
Oh, well, I need to be up early anyway. Have to be in College Stagnation and securely entrenched in Aggieland before 10 am.

Whisky Tango Foxtrot. It's only 1 am!
Hello, Front Desk? I'd like a 6am wakeup call, please!
