last summer i broke my wrist. roller blading. yep.

anyway, i had this big green cast, and you wouldn't believe the signatures i got on it, at various places.

MxPx, the punk band currently starring in a Pepsi ad
Jason Dill, the pro skateboarder better known for freeloading at the home of TV's the Osbournes
Jay Bakker, son of TV Evangelist Jim Bakker

Plus others, including my sister Becky, my friends Sheree and Jessie, and a whole bunch more.

Kinda random, I realize, but interesting, none the less.

four days ago, the thermometers almost hit 90. now, we're expecting snow.

the suckiest part though, is while it's gotten colder here, a couple of my friends have gone to cancun, and will probably miss the snow, unless there's a freak storm in mexico.
The advent of daylight savings time had me thinking about something that's always puzzled me.

Why is it when you set your clock back in the fall, you go from 3 to 2. But when you move a meeting back you go from 2 to 3?

And when you move your clock up, you go from 2 to 3, but when you push an appointment up, you move it from 3 to 2?

When you say "back" you generally think later, but sometimes you mean "earlier".

The same kind of thing can apply when you cross a time zone. I've had arguments with people who ask "which way do I set my watch" and I say, "we just went back an hour" but they say "no, I need to move it up an hour", but we're really thinking the same thing. We both moved our watch from 2pm to 1pm because we travelled west over a time line.

Or am I completely insane? (ok, don't answer that)

favorite u2 songs of all time (at least as of april 4th, 2003 11:50 pm)

Beautiful Day
Mysterious Ways
North and South of the River
Walk On
Where the Streets Have No Name
I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
Until the End of the World
