    I was going to put up Part Four, full of introspection and deep thoughts and brooding sentiments, but then I had such a lovely weekend that I wasn't in the mood. I finished an interesting book (Everlost, in case anyone cares) and completed the edits on my own book (Runefly, in case anyone cares again) watched a darling movie (Tangled) and played a round of primal miniature golf (two holes in one!) and when Lady Friend got her own hole-in-one, she said demurely, "It is a statistical probability to make the hole at least once." and Gay Panda turned into a fourteen-year-old and cried, "THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID!!!"

    And then we drove to a steakhouse for dinner since miniature golf really works up an appetite, and we were leery about a car in the next lane which was weaving here, there, and yonder. Lady Friend guessed that the driver was on the phone. I guessed that the driver was drunk. We were both wrong. Pulling up, we looked over to see the woman was picking her nose. With gusto.

    Ah, yes, there's an old Australian joke about how daylight savings makes your curtains fade ... at least I think most people realise it's a joke.

    I'm not sure Queenslanders do.

    And so easy to fix! 60 years of 23 hour days, and we'll be back to normal.

    That DST/Global Warming thing makes me laugh... I guess Indiana and Arizona are exempt from the blame for global warming then as they don't participate in DST.

    Speaking of which... when do we turn our hours back to the 25 hour day setting???

    no no... we are at the 25 hour day now. We return to standard (24) time soon... in November.

    I kinda wish we could dump the whole DST thing anyway. High noon should just be high noon, and not 1pm during the summer. I hate that sundials are wrong half the year.

    If we turn the clocks back and hour, we're gaining an hour. Spring = forward, Fall = back. I consider that moving to a 25 hour day.

    OK, so we turned the clocks forward on 3/11/12, and we'll turn them back 11/4/12. That's 239 days with the clock forward, where we lose an hour, and 126 days with the clock back where we gain an hour. That's 113 hours per year we end up losing. Almost five... whole... DAYS. Over the course of my life, I've already lost 226 days.

    And you know who decided to implement DST? Huh? HUH? Not you and me. The GOVERNMENT. I demand to know what's happened to the 226 days the government has stolen from me. Where are they? What have they done to them? Can I get them back?

    GIVE ME MY LIFE BACK, GUBMINT!!!!!

    I coulda sworn there was still a half pound of bacon left in the fridge, too. I'm betting the GUBMINT got that somehow, along with my missing days. Crafty bastards.
