Tonight Mexico will finally join the rest of North America (and the world, at this point) and move our clocks forward. You wouldn't think being an extra hour behind everyone would make that much of a difference, but it does.
Several times in the past couple weeks I've been online in the late afternoon, around 4:00 or so, and can't figure out why all my friends have disappeared. Then I remember that it's dinnertime on the East Coast, and quitting time (figuratively, anyway) in Chicago and the rest of the Midwest. It does make me an hour closer to my one friend in Hawaii (waves at Nadine) but it leaves me all out of sorts with everyone else.
I finished Water for Elephants last night and loved it. There were some twists and turns that, in hindsight, seem predictable, but didn't while I was reading it. I truly recommend this to anyone who hasn't already. I kept thinking it would make a wonderful movie, and I totally see Paul Bettany playing Jacob, even if he is ten years too old. One funny thing - in college I read the book Like Water for Chocolate for four different classes (both in English and Spanish) and watched the movie as many times. As a result, I keep calling Elephants Like Water for Elephants. Close enough. ;)
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
