A Stellar Idea

I don't really believe in time change. Well, I guess I do, but not at 2 am the morning "they" say it. I wake up and look at the clock on my cable box. That will say 11.30. No, it will say 8.00. I think, "That's odd. That's not what time I wake up." So I look at my night table clock. That says 7.00. The real time. That will continue to be what I think until about Thursday when I accept time change.

I'm gonna be like Sue and propose a new idea. Now, I know her ideas are all high falootin, figuring out ways to save our country money and get those pesky prisons a little less crowded, you know, "fixing the system." My idea isn't quite so lofty, but I think it will appeal to WAY more people. People who might not want to live next door to her pardoned mass murderers. I'm kidding Sue. You know I think you are brilliant. So here we go. Instead of changing the clock a whole hour at a time. Cause that just throws us off. Let's start sixty days ahead of time and change it a minute each day! You know, like say on January first at 2 am it could actually be 2.01am. Then January 2nd at 2.01 am it will be 2.02am. See where I'm going with that? It wouldn't be like taking our medicine all at once. We could spread it out. No one would even notice the time change.

I know there are some slight glitches in my plan. Like, for instance, people can be stupid. They can forget to turn off their blinker if they haven't taken a hard left. How on earth are they all going to remember to change their clocks one minute at at time? My answer? Who cares about them? They're dumb, like Mickey. Tell them to go watch the Housewives. The rest of us totally got this one. They can pay the piper at the end, they'll never know the difference.

I totally do this time change thing on my own time. I haven't been to work on time yet this week. I do it in ten minute blocks. I'm such a self righteous jerk.

Also, I'm giving you a Blog Pop. The Love one because I love this blog.

Amy, that's just stupid. Nobody wants to change the clock a minute every day.

I'm just kidding, that's a great idea because for some reason this year I just can't seem to get it right. I'm oversleeping everyday (by oversleeping I mean getting up at 7:15)

Okay, if minute-by-minute time change thing works, can we also apply it to the New Year? Changing from '08 to '09 at the stroke of midnight is too sudden for those of us resistant to change. Seriously, I still sometimes write '07 on my checks (Yes, I still hand write checks). So, my idea would be to change the year hour-by-hour. On January 1st from 12:01 to 1:00 am it would be 2009. Then for the remainder of the day, it would return to 2008. On January 2nd from 12:01 to 2:00 am it would be 2009 and then return to 2008. January 3rd from 12:01 TO 3:00 am. Etc. See, this would be so much less confusing?

I know that Mickey gets this one!

Lora, thank you! That is so nice, I am going to go figure that out. I totally appreciate it!!

Asude, It's not stupid! You said it was the smartest thing you have heard all year! Smarter in '09.

I'm shocked that Obama hasn't tapped you for a prime spot in his cabinet.

Actually, scratch that. You're like Gore: transcending politics for world good. Do you know only 35 women have been Nobel Laureates? I shall be tickled to be a friend of the 36th.

Huh? Are we really complaining about the fact that the extra hour of daylight gets thrust upon us all at once? I think it's a great gift. Just when you have had enough of winter, one day you wake up and there is one less hour of darkness. I love that. If you spread it out one minute a day, the cold winter would just seem to drag on until spring arrives in six weeks or so.
