clock

Am I the only person in this country who can gain an extra hour in the day..

Yet still be late for absolutely everything??

It’s like I suffer from some kind of backward jet lag.

 

Like this morning, I tried and tried to get out of bed at my normal time of 6:30.. which last week would have been 7:30 today (right?) so I should have been bounding out of bed all fresh faced and ready for the world, when the reality was, I crawled out of bed at 7:30.. which last week would have been 8:30 today (right?) feeling like I needed an extra hours sleep.

And I like this clock change.

Most of my conversations before the event went like this:

(I did have other conversations, about other things, this did not dominate my life, I just meant the conversations about the clock change)

“Don’t forget the clocks change on Sunday..”

“Of course! Do they go back or forward?”

“Back”

“Is that the good one?  That’s the good one right?”

I mean, how could you forget the clocks were changing?  It’s not like every other post on Facebook would remind you.. or every tweet.. or every newspaper.. or every news channel.. or every blimp that was hired and subtly flown outside the office window..

(Ok the last one didn’t happen but it would have been cool).

Anyway.  It is done now.  Until March.

Where I get to suffer again at the hands of time.

Caught on Camera.. October 15, 2013

I don’t know if I am the only one that does this.. 

And if I am, I may regret sharing this with you all..

But.  Here Goes. 

I was in the shower this morning (bear with me) and whilst I was in there I realised I was washing my hair like I would if I were in a shampoo advert.  

Then it got me to thinking what else I do in the same manner. 

And this is what I came up with.

– I often walk as if I am part of a music video when listening to music, miming to the music, looking down the camera.

– I hoover the house as if I am part of a Queen video … (All together now.. I want to break free..)

– I drive my car as if I am in a motor show, showing you all the pros and cons of my car.

– I sit in the passenger seat as if I am part of a death race.

– I watch tv as if I am going to be part of Surprise Surprise any moment.  Even when I am in my onesie I expect Cilla Black to walk in the door.

– I cook as if I am part of some “how to cook from jars in not a lot of time” show.  

– I do my shopping as if I were part of a Supermarket Sweep.  

Maybe it is because I watched The Truman Show a few years ago, and I imagine that my life is like his, Big Brother style.  Although it isn’t.  Or at least I hope it isn’t.  

Although I would put on a blooming good show.
