Thought Number One: TIME is on my mind
It's that time a year again. Daylight Savings Time. Only this time of year we lose an hour...yes...what feels like "it's 6 AM, right???" is now "Oh, hell,. can it be 7:00 AM already??". It could be said that DST and I have a love hate relationship and this time of year it's the hate part. While I bask in the change when I get to set my clock back an hour in Fall and have that hour all over again...to sleep as it's 2:00 AM, after all. I curse the missing out on it. I did a post way back when about George Vernon Hudson and the history of DST. (feel free to click on those links for more information)
This year was particularly bad as I have a virus that I can't seem to kick. Having spent the last several days in bed, watching endless TV,, I couldn't escape all the references to time...more specifically the passage of time. After seeing all the assorted programs that are making me feel old, it appears that I can't afford to lose hours.Seriously, I want my HOUR back.
Every time I turn around the last few days, I am smacked in the face with reminders of how time moves so quickly.

older, wild and crazy
Another passage of time...Joy Behar announced that after 16 years, she is leaving The View. I actually couldn't care less as I haven't watch The View in years, but it did strike me with "Has that show actually been on the air for SIXTEEN YEARS???
AND STILL ANOTHER...Valerie Harper, who is so beautiful at 73, did an interview yesterday on NBC talking about her cancer diagnosis. This just makes me sad...incredibly sad. The Mary Tyler Moore Show started my senior year in high school and went on through the early days of my marriage. How can it be that the people that were so young (me included) who never gave any real thought to being mortal, are having to deal with their mortality...or if not their own, their loved ones? She has a wonderfully optimistic and realistic attitude. One of the things she said "None of us gets out alive. Don't go to the funeral before the day of the funeral."
Thought Number Two: Too Much Time and Too Much TV
While on my 3 day sabbatical spent lying in bed, I managed to watch a movie that used Gregory Alan Isakov's song Big Black Car, that is about the movement of time. This song was evidently used for a McDonald's commercial once upon a time. I don't have actual knowledge of that, as up until the last several days I had pretty much given up watching commercials. (hugs and kisses to my DVR)
Now that I have refreshed my awareness of watching "live" TV, I can say "I'm not a fan." (Side Note: the only thing worse than having the flu.... is having the flu and having to watch the AT&T commercial where the guy is talking to children at the kiddy table.)
