Time Keeps On Slippin', Slippin', Slippin...

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??

(It's still going to mess with my head.)
