All day I've been thinking it's March already. My watch (the $13 one that has outlasted all other watches combined) tells me it is "3-1" today. I believed it until a few minutes ago.
I was catching up weblog reading and came across Brad Fitzpatrick's leap year entry. Then I realized that, while reliable, my cheap-ass watch doesn't have a clue what year it is. Doh! <homer>stupid watch!</homer>
On the other hand, this completely rocks. I just got back an entire day! It's like daylight savings time, only 24 times better. (And don't get me started on how ridiculous daylight savings time is.)
Maybe this is some sort of cosmic debt system. All those times in the last few years when I've left a meeting and said, "well there's an hour of my life I'll never get back" may have just been erased.
All hail the cheap watch!
Of course, if this had happened during the week I probably wouldn't have been duped as easily. Such is life.
