    daylight savings time completely passed me by this time.

    i thought it was odd that i was catching a "bonus" episode of the simpsons at 8:00pm on sunday night.

    anyway, i wake up at my usual time on monday morning, go to the tutoring center. sign in, look at the times of... the people who signed in before me? i'm usually the first employee there!

    so...that's how i found out that an hour passed me by without me knowing it. :meh:

    fortunately for me, my tutee didn't show up, either, so i lucked out. *whew*

    close call.

    anyway, am i the only person who did this?

    please say "no." :(

    :D

    (btw, i don't tutor "setting your clock in accordance to daylight savings time.")

    I almost forgot to, but then my cell phone changed, and when I noticed it after looking at my clock I remembered.

    Yea I miss the old feature of Win95/98 that warned you that it had automatically updated your clock for daylight savings time and you should check it bla bla bla... That little warning was often the first I knew about the time change. My wife does a decent job of letting me know about it now. Plus the cable box clock updates itself also and that tends to be the one i look at as I walk through the living room.

    I did just adjust the time on my beeper today tho...

    Weird thing was, my phone didn't change until about 7:30AM.

    it's because i'm witty. :rolleyes:


    i'm glad that my misfortune is a fecund source of amusement. :hyper:


    anyone besides me remember that thread i made a few years ago about the time i went into the double bassist section and thought the world went mad?

    i felt kinda like that yesterday. except it was less funny, i guess.

    Not this time, but in the Fall I didn't catch the change and arrived at work a whole hour early. Not too bad except I was there at 6 a.m.!

    ha. i was gone all weekend and didn't get back til monday night (no classes 'til tuesday) and didn't remember that i wasn't there to set my alarm clock the hour forward. so, i woke up an hour late and missed that first class
     
  14. I had a gig that went until 12:30 am and a bass player friend came up to me between sets and said, "Oh, you do know it's day-light savings, so they're going to advance the clocks at 2:00."

    I got back home at 1:45, and then suddenly it was 3:00. Awww..

    that is weird.
     
  19. I set all my clocks ahead except for my alarm clock and slept through a day's worth of class. Oh well.
     
  20. Oh yeah, I definitely forgot all about daylight savings time. Good thing it wasn't on a weekday or I would have missed some of AP Biology. Oh no.
