I came home last night to discover there had been a power outage. My alarm clock was blinking, so I reset it.
For reasons unknown, it is currently an hour and 47 minutes behind.
I'm pretty sure I set it correctly last night; a two-hour difference might be do to not thinking clearly while setting a 12-hour display while using two 24-hour clocks as a reference, but I know I set the minutes correctly. I remember grumbling about having to go most of the way around to get to minute :57.
Oh, my stars and garters. I set the alarm to 9:57 instead of the clock.
In any event, I kept wondering why I was waking up so early this morning. "It's not even 7 yet! Roll over and go back to sleep! You need to be awake and alert tonight!"
I got up at "a reasonable hour", had coffee, and chatted with thoughtsdriftby, then went back to check email and LJ.
A few minutes ago, I looked at my computer clock, and said, "Wait, WHAT? It's 11:30? I got up at 7:30! I haven't been up for FOUR hours!"
This is going to mess with my brain for the rest of the day.
Especially since I still haven't quite figured out what happened to my clock. If there was another power outage in the night, why wasn't it blinking??
