I bet I was supposed to learn this in school…

The United States uses seven time zones. From east to west they are Atlantic Standard Time (AST), Eastern Standard Time (EST), Central Standard Time (CST), Mountain Standard Time (MST), Pacific Standard Time (PST), Alaskan Standard Time (AST), and Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HST).

Daylight Saving Time begins at 2:00 a.m. local time on the first Sunday in April. On the last Sunday in October areas on Daylight Saving Time return to Standard Time at 2:00 a.m. The names in each time zone change along with Daylight Saving Time. Eastern Standard Time (EST) becomes Eastern Daylight Time (EDT), and so forth. Arizona, parts of Indiana, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, U.S. Virgin Islands and American Samoa do not observe Daylight Saving Time.

Which all tells me that I must not be the only one sitting on this conference call listening to this rather nifty hold music. The call was supposed to begin at 11:00 am HST, and it is clearly passed that now. Oh.. there they are.

Also, I have to say, I’m not very fond of the phrase “what’s coming down the pike”. Lets all agree to not say that anymore, k? I’ll notify the goobz at work who keep doing it.

/end work ramble

Tomorrow evening, we’re having a meager send-off for Mr. Janow, who is accepting a year-long contract to work in Iraq. Saturday, no real plans (except perhaps to see the new Ep III trailer, er.. um..Robots), but Sunday we’re hoping to hit some open houses. Wheeeee!

Oh well… new Point Pleasant tonight. And, as of last night, I’ve now caught up on all the first thirteen eps of House — addictive. Oh yeah, and tomorrow night is the last Tru Calling, evah.
