    I keep seeing EVIL too! Glad I'm not the only one!

    I'm so excited, I'm going to leave the Eastern Time zone for the first time in my life on Friday! Granted, it's only to Central so therefor only 1 hour difference, but hey! at least it's something! ;)

    Speaking of Central Time, as one who only lived in Eastern until the last couple years:

    Last night on FB at "1 a.m. redux"-

    Me: I love seeing the clock go from 1:59 to 1:00.
    Friend: The change was an hour ago, you aren't just now changing it, are you?
    Me: I'm in Central time.
    Friend: Okay, just making sure!

    1) I'm not sure she really understood my answer (I didn't really understand hers, anyway).
    2) Or possibly she doesn't understand that everyone changes at their 2 a.m., regardless of time zone?
    3) What on earth difference does she think it'll make if I turned my clock back at the wrong hour in the middle of the freakin' night?
    :confused:

    And on that note, as it starts to get dark at 5:30... I hate the time change. *pout*

    I loved the extra hour of sleep, but now its 4 here and by the sky, it looks like it's the middle of the night. And so the 18 hour nights begin!

    My brother and I had a nice discussion about the buyout last night, and we've admitted that it's a good thing that Lucas sold Lucasfilm. Otherwise, he could have just let the whole thing die. He felt it better to pass it along to someone who would care for it (not sure how well, yet), so that more and more people can enjoy it for years to come. And that is an admirable thing to do. If I had built an empire... I would do the same.

    As much as I joke around about GL inventing selling out, it is a good thing. My sister's boy friend and I talked about it last night. GL has been in the business long enough to know who is going to treat his life's work the best, and Disney was the right choice (look at the sucess they made out of Marvel). I don't think Disney was the only name on the table and I don't think the decision was made lightly.

    In general, I think I'd rather have crappy movies then to let Star Wars slowly die out.

    Your sister's boyfriend and you had the same conversation last night that my brother and I had.

    Hmmm... [face_thinking]

    I agree...just go easy with the Jar Jar characters. o_O

    ACK! I had a crappy morning. I set my alarm for 6:15. At 7AM I wake up. I'm like, "Arrggg, I over slept!" I jump out of bed all disorientated. My husband said, "I thought you weren't going to get up because I could bring the kids to school today."

    "Are they awake? Are they dressed? Did they have breakfast? Are their lunches made?" I ask him. He looks at the clock. "No, we have 15 minutes before we have to leave."

    [face_phbbbbt] So I have to run around and do everything I usually do in an hour in 15 minutes. I need to get a new alarm clock or a back up clock.

    Ugh, I hate that feeling of being late! I've started using my phone as an alarm clock and it hasn't failed me yet (so long as I remember to set it!). If the power goes out, it still wakes me up, and it automatically adjusts for time changes.

    I use my phone as my alarm clock. I even have an alarm set to tell me to go to bed! So far, so good.

    My alarm clock was cheep, runs on both batteries and plugs in and has yet to fail me (except when I forget to set it). But it's really fast. Every 3 months it gets 10 minutes fast, so I have to set it back.

    Off until Wednesday. I'm going to vote early, come home, play piano and then watch political movies like 1776 and Revenge of the Sith and maybe West Wing episodes. And I'm writing Palpatine. And unfriending anyone who calls me to whine about how we've elected the Antichrist like last term.

    Gah. I'm a Canadian without TV and I'M sick of the US election. That's one of the many nice things about Canada, it's 3-4 weeks from when a new election is requested to a new government is voted in. Then you don't even have to think about the federal government for 3-5 years.

    On the one hand, we have Obama, who I voted for four years ago. On the other, we have Mitt Romney, who my family knows from being Bostonian Mormons (much smaller world than you might think). I know who I'm going to vote for. I've known for sure for almost two months. I won't discuss it here. I just want the whole thing to be over with so my friends can be boring about things other than politics.

    LOL! Yeah, it's become waayyy too much. I wish our elections were more like that!

    I've pretty much stayed away from facebook because I'm so sick of the election being the only topic of conversation. At this point I don't care who wins (okay, that is a lie) I just want it to be over, but I know we'll have to discuss it for weeks afterward. [face_sigh]

    Force, I hope we don't have any 'hanging chad' fiascos! That Bush/Gore election was painful!! I hope for a landslide so we can get this over with and we don't have a recount. And I voted...and there was actually a line. I live in a town with a post office, a gas station and a township office as big as my living room (seriously that is the entire town--three buildings). It is SMALL...and we had a line at 10AM. I am impressed with the turnout.

    I got up at 8, left around 8:45 to go to the polls. On the way there, I entered a drawing for 2 symphony tickets for this Friday. By the time I got to the polls, I'd gotten an e-mail back telling me how to pick up my tickets. I quickly got time off frm work for it (Paid), stood in line for about 40 minutes before voting and then walked back, feeling very American.

    I voted.

    Many places were using paper ballots, including my local election house. I don't take that as a good sign, as it brought back memories of the Bush/Gore election.

    I'm preparing for a recount... but not from Florida. I'm waiting for it to come from Pennsylvania, where we used paper ballots!

    Actually Penn was declared for Obama a while back. So no recount there :p

    (and Florida is now 50/49 pro-Blue)

    Actually, the shocker is that North Carolina and Virginia are so close...Southern States that are leaning quite blue. Interesting...

    EDIT: Still going Romney in all likelihood, but closer than expected.

    I hope the turnout changes. I'd rather Obama. I don't have the money to flee to Canada.
