I just had this long post. About all the drama that's about to throw down in a matter of hours. It was clever...beautiful...funny...everything you'd expect to read...you'd laugh, cry...and think it was better than Cats.
...and now...it's just...gone.
Just like that.
Disappeared into blogland for the cyber gnomes to read.
To summarize all that you've missed...here you go. The abridged version of what I previously titled... "Spring Forward, Fall Back...crock-o-sh...."
In a matter of hours, we shall rise.
To catch the train...
That leaves Westport, CT at 4:19. (We're staying with my Aunt and Uncle about 45 minutes from downtown.)
In the morning. Yes....that's like 6 hours from now or something. I'm not amused.
To catch said 4:19 train...we have to leave the house at 4am.
Meaning we have to wake up at 3:15ish.
Meaning we should've been in bed about 2-3 hours ago.
And let's not forget the fact that WE'RE IN THE EASTERN TIME ZONE PEOPLE. THAT'S STUPID TIME (sorry, Mouse). WE'RE USED TO AN HOUR BEHIND...SO THAT REALLY MEANS WE'RE WAKING UP AT 2:15 TO CATCH THE 3:19 TRAIN.
And don't gimmie any of that "oh it's daylight savings time you get an extra hour of sleep" bull crap. Cause really...daylight savings only counts in these two scenarios:
1) You're at a bar...you've got an extra hour of partying, schmoozing, boozing and flirting. You've got that extra hour to find the future love of your life....or at least love for the night.
2) When you're sleeping in.
Neither of which we are doing. So really...WE DON'T BENEFIT FROM THIS DAYLIGHT SAVINGS CHANGE.
Good luck to everyone running tomorrow!! I'll be the girl napping on the sidewalk at miles 6, 16 and somewhere in the finish line hullaballoo...assuming we don't oversleep the start!
I'll try and photoblog during the race, so stay tuned, campers...
