  1. lol…it seems like a misnomer not just because summer doesn't officially start till june, it also seems like a misnomer because even when it is officially summer here, it's not very summery :)(oh, and you do realise that I don't fall under "you brits"…)

  2. nope. have not sworn allegiance to the Queen. nice lady, got nothing against her, but… I've got one country to be loyal to. don't see how one can do both. legally I could, but it just doesn't make sense to me.

  3. The whole idea of Daylight Saving or Summer time seems daft to me. You can't make the earth spin round quicker or slower, however much you alter the clocks. If you want to get up earlier and go to bed earlier, why don't you just get up earlier and go to bed earlier. It's like writing the word 'green' and saying the paper is green.

  4. i'm one of those people that really appreciates daylight savings time. sure, some people can get to bed earlier or later, but my son wakes up with sunrise, period. and when sunrise is at 4 in the morning, then that boy is going to be up at 4 in the morning no matter what time he went to bed the night before. and since he's not going to want to go to bed at 7 at night, especially when it's bright daylight outside, then i'm all for switching the clocks around a bit so that he'll go to bed when he's supposed to without hurting his fragile male ego, but he'll still sleep in long enough that i don't hear him playing computer games at the crack of dawn.

  5. lol… my mum actually spells some things the british way and some the american way, which is very weird for me. I don't know if it's because it's the way south africans spell or if it's a peculiar thing she does, but she insists that "mom" is the correct way and "mum" incorrect for the short form of "mother". she pointed it out to me when I wrote her a letter starting with "dear mum", after which I started writing to her as "dear imma" instead.
