Did you fall back?

OK, fess up: how many of you forgot to “fall back” today? I honestly wouldn’t have remembered if it wasn’t for a guy at the barber shop on Friday that reminded his employees to set their clocks back an hour (although he had them doing it a day early). I guess I would have noticed this morning when I booted up my computer (remember when Windows 95 would remind you that it set the clock back for you?)

My comp set the clock back but it has to announce such!

Arizona doesn't do daylights savings time. So while I don't have to remember to change my clocks twice a year, I do have to get used to switching between 2- and 3-hour time differences with the East Coast. This includes important things like NFL games starting at 11am now instead of 10am on Sunday mornings.

My wife remembered - I wouldn't have had a clue.

Totally unrelated, but I had a dream with you in it last night, Monica. You got really annoyed with me. :)

I had to remind all my employees at work on Saturday to change their clocks...I scared them by pointing out that they would be an hour early for work today if they were to forget to fall back!

I then planned to sleep verrrrry late this morning but I woke up before my clock went off. :o(

I am already sad about the early sunset!

Ryan, do you and Monica know each other personally? It would be funny if you have never seen each other yet dreamt about each other. At least we know what you look like.



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
