Last week I got to...
And this week, I'm at...
Also, I finished the earrings, and now if you are so inclined, you can purchase a pair...

The link in the caption takes you to the listing. Okay, and now for the Rant:
I have one of those atomic clocks. You know the ones?
Rather than having to set the thing, it links with some accurate clock someplace, making sure the time stays pretty close to "official time".
Only, as with all technology, it doesn't always work as advertised. Occasionally, it likes to slip into Daylight Saving Time. Like it did on Thursday. Note, it's February. We've got a couple weeks until DST returns.
Yep, so occasionally, I'll have to set the the thing or ignore the fact that it's a whole hour off.
I thought that was the only clock I had that failed.
The other day, I was on my cell phone. Email. Facebook. Candy Crush. You know the drill. It said it was 1:05.
There was one big problem. It couldn't have been 1:05. I was in the wrong place for it to be 1:05. I glanced at my other, human set, clock, and it said 12:05.
Whew. I was worried for a minute there. But that meant that something was wrong with my phone.
After some fiddling with the thing, I found the problem. My phone had my time zone listed as Denver. Um, no. Nowhere near Denver. So, I manually set the phone to Los Angeles (close enough), and went on with my day.
At the end of the day, I checked the phone's settings again. When I put it back on automatic, it showed the proper time zone. I went to bed thinking the problem was fixed.
I use my phone for my alarm clock. Best alarm clock ever. I'm weird when it comes to how I wake up in the morning, and I have managed to configure the phone to handle this perfectly. (It only took 30 years for the technology to catch up to what I need.)
I bet you see what's coming...
My alarm went off. Only, my bedside clock showed it was an hour too early...
Yup. Phone thought I was in Denver again.
*grumble, grumble, grumble*
Okay, fine. So the phone is now permanently manually on Los Angeles. Because the alarm going off an hour early just sucks.
