How does az not change? So now your only 2 hours behind me? Instead of 3?


Because we're the Wild West out here!!  And yes, we're now only 2 hours apart. :)

weird, I didnt know that


She'd kill me for mentioning this, but she'll never read it so fuck it.

My wife is an Arizona native, and has lived here her whole life.  She one day asked me what the whole spring forward and fall behind thing was and asked me what daylight savings time was.  She had absolutely no clue that the rest of the country changed their clocks twice a year.  She always thought it was just some old saying and didn't ever understand what it meant.  And no, she's not even blonde.  :o

hahahahaha, god that must really confuse her, but what about the states all around you dont they change their time too?  so some times your west coast time and some times your mountain time? or what ever that section is called? thats sooooo weird.

I never change my times either.  Sometimes I'm late, sometimes I'm early. ???

Looks like I'm all set.  Didn't have to adjust anything.  



Funny thing though, last night the kids got to stay up an hour later cuz I was looking at my laptop clock which had adjusted for some lame reason.  I didn't realize it until a couple hours after they went to sleep.  The little turds knew they were up past bedtime tho.  They kept asking if it was bedtime and would then go into the kitchen for a 'drink'.  I'm sure they were looking at the clock in there and giggling. Ah well.  They will be up way past midnight tonight as they are going to the MW3 launch with me and the wifelet at the Microsoft store. :party:

We don't.  But my laptop did.  It was set for some other zone besides AZ.  So it had moved back an hour.  I sent the kids to bed at 9 per my laptop time, but later I looked and realized they were up until 10.
