Other days, everything goes well

Just taking a break from reading The Graveyard Book to do a bit of quick blogging. Any day that ends with reading a new Neil Gaiman book is a good day, if you ask me. I’m excited to read it all through, but sad that once I’ve read it, I can’t un-read it and read it again. You know how it goes.

Today the universe also saw fit to bestow upon me a perfect little gift: a question to which I had the answer ready. A woman at the post office – suddenly, and apropos of nothing – asked me, “Do you know when daylight savings time ends?”

I stood up a little straighter, and the sun broke through the clouds, and an angelic choir sang a chord, and I said, “Yes I do. November 2nd.”

Seriously, did someone pay her to ask me that? Because whoever it was, thank you! I felt so very smart and helpful. (I looked up the answer last week.)

  • Is it really? Hallelujah. I’ve been wanting that hour back all month.

    Saving without an s because we cannot actually control the amount of sunlight the earth receives, no matter what those boneheads in office think.

    Well thanks! We have wondering when the damn thing was going to end all week :)

  • Yes, I will also be glad when DST goes away. I do not mind driving home from work in the dark NEARLY as much as I mind going out to to work in the dark.

    Seriously, 6:45 am feels like the armpit of night right now. It’s miserable.

  • I’m reading “The Graveyard Book” too. Had to request it through inter-library loan, since my library doesn’t keep up with that there fiction-type stuff…
    And, yeah, I thought I was the only one who wanted to read again for the “first time” – you made me feel better.

    I have a request out for “Anathem,” but no luck so far. Anticipation is probably good for the soul, or something, right?

    Oh, The Graveyard Book! I was fortunate enough to see him on his stop of the tour and listen to his dulcet tones read us the first chapter. ^_^
    Mr. Gaiman has all the videos of his tour, reading the ENTIRE book (!!), up at his younger audience website, Mouse Circus: http://www.mousecircus.com/videotour.aspx.
    Definitely worth a look!

    Isn’t it wonderful when you get an opportunity to look all competent and wise? (I’d say “knowledgable”, but I’m not sure I can spell it right)
