It’s Monday – May 2, 2016. For the second time. At midnight the clocks were put back a day resulting in us getting a second chance to get 2 May right.
Everyone remember the old Bill Murray movie? It was a favorite at Blue Factory, summer of 1998 where I think it played every night to an unpacked room for months on end. I was considered a wet blanket because I made them show it as the second feature of the double bill, rather than the first which really took down its popularity especially after my Signal’s LT installed a multi-player bootleg copy of a shooter game on the server. Now, instead of whining the evening and nightshift spent their time stalking through the castle, fortress and surrounds killing each other off.
Back to Ground Hog’s Day. It is not February. It is not Pennsylvania. And it most certainly is not snowing. But is is Monday, all over again. My family, instead of being 19, 17, 16 hours behind me so that I could happily communicate with them from the future has transitioned to be ahead of me on the time zone world clock.
I am now coping with the [not] fun of electronics that don’t want to be set back a day. It is extremely hard to upload photos to a website when the computer has labeled them as “taken tomorrow….. And it is almost the same thing with my watch. If I update it today – I will lose all of yesterday’s exercise data. Instead I am waiting till tomorrow since today was my “down day.”
Not that I am superstitious or anything. But it just seemed that this would not be a good day on which to push my luck. Good excuse, that, for blowing off formal night…..
