Is it Spring yet?
Dear rest of the world that practices DST, please spring forward soon so you will stop being an hour further away than you usually are. Love, a yank who misses you.

In other news, still alive, if personally rather blah at the moment for a number of brain and health reasons.

In other news, ganked from apocalypsos, a gallery of girl/girl prom pictures. Heart: *grows three sizes* Bonus gallery of the less snapshotty sort: hot girls with glasses.

In other other news, this video is not reducing my The Founding Fathers Are Hot issues. (I link to a blogpost because I am...somewhere.... that blocks youtube so I can't snag the real URL.) If Schoolhouse Rock had actually been like this, I wouldn't mostly hate it. /traitor to my generation.

In other other other news, yeah yeah, LJ header different, world ending, but more importantly, you can now turn off new comments to your post without hiding all the old ones. We've only been wanting this for what, ten years, people? I could give a crap about having to manually go hide the vgifts on my profile in the face of that. (When you edit a post, there's now a "locked" option in the "Allow Comments?" dropdown.)

I know - but everybody else who isn't the US or Canada won't until the end of the month, so they're all an hour further away than usual!

Now I want, like, a rock opera remix of 1776 or something.

I love those prom pictures. There's something about prom in general - all these kids straddling the line between childhood and adulthood before they go off.

Actually they're an hour closer.

Eastern time is currently +4 from GMT. Usually Eastern is +5. Once they jump to daylight savings time, they'll be +5 again. :)

Eastern time is currently minus four from GMT. But yes, we sprang forward and caught up an hour to the ones that are already living in tomorrow. Unfortunately that means Certain GMT+1 People don't wake up until an hour closer to my bedtime than usual.

Oh, yep! You're right, +4 from here.

Right, because they're five hours away. Instead of six. (Or six instead of seven because I don't know which part of the state you're in, sry)

But I'm still unsure how that's farther away?

This is why you do it like me and figure you get longer before they go to bed.

...wow, that sounds creepy.

SHH.
