the times, they are a'changin'... - Echoes of Flavio's Ghost Dreaming
the times, they are a'changin'...
Earlier this morning got a bit confused between the time the watch was telling me (incorrect) and the iPhone's (updates automatically) when I got up, at 9:15. Oh, ok, at 10:15 then. Have to dig the manual for the watch to change to summer time. In the computer: the paper manual that comes with it is in front of me but I would need a microscope to read the blodi ting, so first thing I did when I bought it was to download manual as a PDF so I could actually read it. What did people with poor/failing/etc eyesight do in the olden times? Buy enormous magnifying glasses and carry them with them, I s'pose?

I still find the changing of the clocks twice a year a puzzling, peculiar custom. Yes, I know why they do it but I still find it strange and a little bit annoying.

I had similar confuson this morning. The mornings being actually lighter now. I, due to no curtains, was awoken by laser-like sumbeams in my room at 6pm. I've been wondering around in an alzheimer's like regard for my schedule all day^^ :)

...sleep is goood!

My curtains are light coloured and have gaps at the top.. the mask-like things with a rubberband they give you on airplanes I find bothersome, so what I came up with was a simple black t-shirt (as I have rather a surfeit of those) or a dark towel, to cover my eyes. That does the trick for me. while I find a better solution (and the lease contract prohibits me from putting up black curtains..in the same way the leaseholder covenants not to keep CAT DOG BIRD FOWL (sic) in the premises).

The twice-a-year palaver with the clocks does get a bit bothersome, too.
