Saving Daylight and wasting time

Monday, October 6, 2008

Just so y'all know we've wound our clocks forward 1 hour down here so we're a bit out of sync now. Actually, I think it's Queensland that's out of sync really, (I LOVE daylight savings!!) but I'm sure they'll catch up some time!

The sun didn't set til 7:30pm yesterday! Though, when I got up at 7am today, it was "really" 6am which is not cool. Apparently the first couple of weeks are a bit tough, but we'll get used to it I'm sure.

But not only did I lose an hour yesterday due to daylight savings, I also lost another hour and 40 minutes watching the WORST MOVIE EVER!!!!!!!! Hubs and I had a free night so we decided to watch "Forgetting Sarah Marshall". Now I'm going through the process of forgetting Forgetting Sarah Marshall. It should have had a warning on it saying "This is a crap video. Half way through I wanted to make a cup of tea." (Ref: Jimeoin) It was the biggest pile of poo I've ever watched. In fact, watching a pile of poo for an hour and 40 minutes would have been more bearable.

I thought it was going to be one of those gross comedies like Van Wilder or Knocked Up which I quite liked. But no. It was just hideously boring and cringe-worthy. I would have stopped watching after 15 minutes but Hubs thought we should give it a bit longer. After 45 minutes, it had gotten even worse, but now Hubs needed "closure". Closure shmlosure. I was uncomfortable and irritated and bewildered by the whole process. Luckily, my good friend Adele rang me with 10 minutes to go so I got out of watching the final blows.

I know what you're saying: why didn't I just get up and do something else? Well we were watching this drivel in bed on my laptop and I was enjoying snuggling up to Hubs so at least I got SOME enjoyment out of the process.

I rate this movie negative 87 stars; worst.... movie.... ever....

    You had to get me started on daylight savings, didn't you?

    DS is helpful for places that (a) are further away from the equator, (b) not hot in summer (c) have a populus that need to be 'tricked' into waking up at otherwise unbearable times. Hence the disparity.

    Scientifically there is more justification for Vic having 2 hours daylight saving than there is for Qld having one.

    Of course, if you're going stay indoors watching a pile of poo, then the whole concept is useless. The government would be better to concentrate on doing something about renewable energy.


    Here's another "NO WAY" from me for DS! So did I get this right? You didn't like Sarah Marshall?!


    Everyone's entitled to their opinion! I do agree that DS is fairly useless in Brisbane, but i like to have a bit of a stir every now and then.
    And the movie was okay I guess..... NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    1) Its all about expectations. Me and jodes went to see forgetting sarah marshall because there was NOTHING else even remotely watchable out. Ended up being so much better than we expected I really enjoyed it. Russell Brand made me laugh.

    As for daylight savings, boo! Offices should just allow for flexible working hours. As a programmer there is nothing worse than daylight savings, which is a messy hack for society that operates in daylight hours.

    Look forward to seeing you guys in brisbane, I miss having arguments like this in person!


    Yes, Hubs misses you too Nate. I sometimes hear him muttering your name in his sleep. Can't wait to see yous!
