He said Taxes Not Texas

current state of mind:  tentative

Build us a new perpetuity
Tell us we've nothing to fear from ourselves
Now that we're painted so colourfully
We'll be replaced by someone somewhere soon
~ “Shiny Things” by Fanfarlo

Daylight Savings Time has officially kicked my a$$.  I cannot get up in the morning; nor can I fall asleep at night.  I look around me during the day and I see the other walking zombies who are also battling the change in biorhythms due to a mere one hour difference.  Hopefully next week, everyone will be back to normal – because I have noticed that many people are wearing their “crabby pants” this week. 

In other news, Jupiter and Venus appeared close enough to almost kiss in the night sky on Tuesday.  Now, they will slowly move apart again, which means that if you have not gone outside and looked into the western sky at the stunning display, you need to before it’s too late.  The next amazing astronomical event to watch for will be June 5th, when Venus will be in between us and the Sun, resulting in a black dot on the sun, during the day.  Now, we are not supposed to stare directly into the sun – so, You may want to just look at a photograph of the event, as I am sure there will be plenty online, since this event only happens about once a century.  Or, you could just sneak a glance – but again, I recommend for your eyesight that you refrain from doing so.    

Based on a referral from k-Shrub, I read Hunger Games.  I couldn’t put it down and read the entire novel in one evening.  If you haven’t read it, you should.  It is an easy read, as it is young adult fiction.  The story is well-written and the characters have a depth not usually found in young adult fiction.  I will begin the second book in the series as soon as I finish my Torts reading for the week.  I find that putting school reading ahead of pleasure reading actually means I get all my reading done.  Plus, I am really digging my Torts class and actually enjoy reading the content. 

I have been drinking a lot more water lately thanks to MetroMint Chocolate Mint flavored water.  It is a refreshing beverage that contains nothing artificial, no sweeteners, and no calories.  It is just purified water with enough mint and cocoa essence to make your taste buds happy that you’re alive when you drink it.  woot woot!

I have to remember to go to the dry cleaner today after work.  I have some clothes that need to be cleaned and I have just been letting them sit in a dry cleaning bag, waiting to be taken somewhere so they can be worn again. 

That is all!

PERSONAL NOTE:  Looking forward to your next secret rendezvous.    

CONFIDENTIAL NOTE:  So very happy that you are not suffering today!
