Ramblings 11MAR12

Happy end of Daylight Savings Time; while I lament the loss of an hour, I do prefer Springing forward because it's so much easier with my clocks. I think there may be some where you can go forward or back but my digital clocks all can only go forward and since they're all 24-hour clocks, that means I have to go ahead 23 hours to fall back.

Since I began with a little complaint and would like to continue that with a plea to bloggers to turn off the blogspot word verification-it is *SO* annoying! It was okay when there was just one word and now it's two words with letters near impossible to distinguish. I've been plugging away trying to puzzle out the letters but it's super hard and soon I'm probably not going to bother. Just a plea to reconsider!

I also had a fab time at Disney; my big disappointment being a lack of Aurora clothing. She's my favorite princess but I have really only been able to find stuff with Ariel, Snow White, Minnie, and Tinker Bell (the last two aren't princesses obviously but are on tons of stuff). I guess I will just have to continue to look online to find items I like.

That ended up having a bit more complaining than I meant to. Due to my Disney trip, I'm a little behind on my reading but I'm perfectly fine with that and excited about this upcoming week. I have my orchestra concert this Wednesday and am looking forward to catching "21 Jump Street" on the weekend. It's been getting great reviews and I'm sure my sister and I will enjoy it.

How was your weekend? How does your week to come look?


  1. I actually like this time change once I adjust. It is nice to have more daylight especially when I have to work evenings.

    I am one of those unfortunate bloggers who has that word verification thing. I had no idea it called for two words. I hate word verification too but I got tired of having to approve blog comments. Maybe I will have to switch back to that.

    Glad you had a good time at Disney. I've never been there. Good luck with your concert and I hope you have a great week!

    1. Yeah, I didn't mind the one word but now it's two and they're nearly impossible to read. If it was two that were a little easier to read, it might not be so bad.

      I'm really lucky in that I don't get much spam (maybe 1 a month) so it's not a problem for me but I know that other bloggers have more problems and need a solution to it.

  2. LOL that's so true, B! As much as my family is mourning the loss of one hour of sleep, turning our digital clocks forward is so much easier than turning our clocks backward! I've always wondered why they never have a back button for time setting... haha! x) And oh gosh, the word verification is getting really hard to read! I've been getting them wrong half the time and it's not exactly fun LOL

    But I'm really glad you had an awesome time at Disney! :) I think Aurora is one of my favourite princesses too, although I have to admit that I have a weakness for Minnie Mouse too since our names are so similar, princess or not! ;)

    I hope you have an amazing rest-of-the-week, B! :) <3 Since it's March break for me, I'll be sure to get lots of reading in and I hope you can read lots too!

  3. I could not agree with you more about CAPCHA. I despise it. Glad you had a good time at Disney!
    Truly Bookish

  4. I am very much disliking the word verification, too! As far as I know, mine is turned off. It never bothered me with one word, but this two word is craziness! :P

  5. Yay for your Disney trip! Sleeping Beauty is my favorite, too. Sad that you couldn't find more merchandise with her on it, but thankfully there is always the internet :)

    I miss the hour of sleep we lose with daylight savings, but I LOVE the hour of daylight we gain in the evening! It makes me so much happier. I get so depressed when I leave work and it's already dark out. Oh and *groan* about the digital clocks! Mine are the same way, and invariably I somehow manage to "jump" two hours when trying to reset the time instead of one so I usually ended up having the cycle the darn things twice.

    I encountered my first new word verification on a blog today. It was very annoying. The old ones were bad enough, but these new ones...I don't think I'll try much with them.
