flightless hag

A chronicle of the adventures of birdwoman: a lonely, talentless freak who wanders the internet in search of entertainment.

Keepin Up With The Times

So, we got the coolest gift from John’s parents. It’s an Atomic Clock (which puts the Blondie song “Atomic” in my head…).

You pick your time zone. You put in the battery. You hang the clock.

Within 24 hours, it’s set. It even handles that daylight savings crap.

Only strangeness? It’s analog. It checks itself every few hours or something. When it sees that it’s off by some amount of time, the arms start swinging like a compass near a CAT scanner. It’s mighty strange to watch.

I’m sure this will completely freak my mother out when she comes to stay. And then she won’t trust the clock. Oh well, nothing’s perfect.
