Whoa! When I logged into Blogger, I caught a quick glimpse of something that I thought said Blogger Sex Party. Looking closer, I see that it actually says "Blogger SXSW Party, Sunday in Austin, TX." Dang.
As you know, we go back on Daylight Saving Time this weekend. I have one word to say about that: Crap! I hate changing the time twice a year, and I really don't want to be doing it three weeks early. So what if it gets dark in the evening? It's supposed to be dark at night. I have no burning desire to be seeing the sun at 9:00 or 10:00 at night. I hate, hate, hate getting up in the morning when it's still pitch dark. As long as I can see a little sunlight, I wake right up. Next week, when the alarm wakes me at the usual time it's actually going to be an hour earlier and ... dark. It takes me a long time to acclimate to it and, by the time I do, guess what? It's time to switch again. Twice a year, the government screws around with the time. What are they going to manipulate next?
The premature time change may wreak a little havoc with our computers and other electronics. Apparently, making the change to Windows manually won’t be any problem. I do wonder what Windows is going to do on the date it “thinks” it’s supposed to make the change. Microsoft says it has a “patch” to take care of this problem, to which I say “thanks, but no thanks.” I never accept Microsoft’s automatic updates. Every time (and I mean every single time) I ever did, I suffered a crash. How about you Mac users? Is this going to affect your machines?
All in all, I think I'd rather think about clothes again. Today I'm wearing khakis, yellow sweater with ruffles, and brown clogs. Oh, and gold earrings, watch, charm bracelet, two bangle bracelets, and four rings. Definitely not glam, but who at work or at the grocery store later on is going to care? It's comfortable, and that's what I care about.
