I'm Wonky

That’s a word, right? “Wonky”? If not then I’m sorry if I’ve offended anyone that is more grammatically enlightened than myself.

The image is clearer but the light is blown out, why is this ACEO mocking me?

If I may be so bold, I’d like to officially declare once and for all that I hate Daylight Savings Time and, in this case, the lack thereof. On Saturday night before heading off to bed we had to set the clocks back an hour because the calender told us to... and the newspapers... and every other form of media the Other Half and I were exposed to this past week-end.

Setting the clocks back isn’t as bad as setting them forward but the result is that sleeping schedules are thrown slightly out of whack and, worst of all, I’m really not sure when to eat. Well, I should say that I know when to eat but at the times that I’d normally eat my body is telling me that I’m waaaaay off. It’s very frustrating and I know that for the next 2 weeks until I get used to the time change I’ll probably be spending a good deal of time talking to myself essentially wondering out loud why I don’t just move to Saskatchewan and save myself the trouble.

On a completely unrelated note does anyone else find it ironic and somewhat cruel that there's a candy store located just steps away from the Weight Watchers office/ store in the city closest to me? Maybe it's supposed to be a test of will power... yeah, that must be it.

That's good to know! I'm going to have to go with selection 1-a as the most accurate description of how 'wonky' applies to me.

I wonder who came up with that word anyway...
