    I've always noted times. In fact, my pocketwatch version of a grandfather clock on my dresser has been at 9:11 for the last 15 years or so (as an homage to the "9-1-1 is a Joke" song from Public Enemy, not that "other" one). I also note time left in sporting events at 9:11, as well as when the score's 51-50 (crazy, eh? ).

    A sampling of the times I look forward to during the day, and why:
    6:07, 6:41 (Cub and Boy Scout pack and troop numbers)
    12:34 or 1:23 (and it the watch has 56 or 45 seconds, even better)
    8:08 (a common time, Bob)
    11:38 (we know why)
    10:23 (personal info, available in my profile )
    7:47 (lea-vin' on a jet plane, don't know when I'll be back again)
    11:11 (four aces? c'mon! )

    There's probably more, but I can't remember them now. Maybe at another TIME. Ha!

    Nobody's going to go for that though, military time isn't as universal. I think we need to petition the government to go to 24-hour time just for that reason.


    Last night at 11:38, I jumped on SW:Battlefront II.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    the 24-hour clock is already used extensively in Europe. As usual, our little county is behind the times.

    I like the 1234 type ones as well as palindrome numbers. I also like all 3's - 3:33:33.

    There was a time where it seemed I would often wake up at 7:37 and immediately that CCR song "Traveling Band" would come into my mind - "737 comin' out of the sky"

    Sometimes I'll message my boss at work and she will reply with a thank you, but she will abbreviate it "thx". I'm often tempted to reply "1138".

    Another good time to remember:

    "What time is it?
    4:30.
    It's not late, naw, naw, it's just early, early."

    That band was so underrated.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Yeaaaah buddy!



    So last night, I'm driving at 11:38 so I flip open my cellphone/mp3 player and crank up the opening theme. Not a safe tune to drive to.

    Took this photo of my hand... and my stove, the other morning. Can't seem to recall what time I did so, but hey, who remembers such mudane, uber-specific details, anyway?
