curse you daylight savings and random other things.

Right now, adding the one hour that hasn't actually been added yet since its not 2 a.m. which is when you technically lose the hour, its 12:05 a.m. which means ... blah. That's what that means. I knew there were some good things about Arizona, maybe. At least there, you didn't have to deal with losing valuable hours of sleep, but you did have to deal with having to remember when and where daylight savings takes place. It really is confusing in Arizona because in Australia you're sprung forward when you've fallen back here, and Arizona just plain doesn't move. So you get really confused because you've got to calculate things and if you're no good at math, which I wasn't back then when I livedin Arizona, you just consider that daylight savings in fact sucks. Wait a minute, I've just gone in a complete circle; damn don't you just love circular logic. There is, like there is in the U.S. one state in Australia (Queensland) who refuses to go onto daylight savings. Us who lived in New South Wales, said that they didn't want to switch because they're naturally backwards in Queensland and figured that less sunlight (if it were saved) would fade the curtains. IN Arizona, we just bake, regardless if we're not on daylight savings and the rest of the country isn't. No need to save daylight if the forecast mantra is "hot and sunny, sunny and hot, hot and sunny, sunny and hot". Its true though, its just confusing, annoying, and maddening either way you go.

That was a fun rant. Why is it that rants don't ever seem to make sense to the writer (me) or you (the reader)?

Moving on. I finished scanning Against All Enemies by Richard Clark. From the little that I read, its interesting that Clark was able to not only politicize, but spin a narrative that is entirely readable and totally unlike how you might think an ex-governmental leader might write. He's got interesting insight and I can't wait to continue reading. I'll be sure to update later with a review when I finish. I wanted to submit it to bookshare as I've gotten a couple of emails since I mentioned that I would be scanning it. The stats n it looked good so whoever actually downloads it and approves it can fix any other blaring errors I have missed. We'll see how long my listing stays active. Methinks not long as I'm $1 lower than the rest, $2 less than what I paid for it.

Suppose I should go to sleep now. Stupid stupid daylight savings. In the next update, wedding, wedding, and more $%^&^&^%$ wedding :)))). Its not that I don't want my sister to get married, she couldn't have found a nicer guy and family, its just that there's such an amazing amount of logistics involved that we might be best to contact General Colin Powell for tactical and geopolitical details. Either that or draft a resolution to the united family association as entitled the successful completion of a wedding in six months without dying First edition. I think while the girls do the anual tea party at our church tomorrow, themed, you guessed it, wedding, my dad and I will probably do something manly like demolish something. :D That will be fun!

    The plan is to go to the beach this afternoon, but I'm not sure when. We don't have too much special planned besides that, but it's the last full day…
