Will you Aussies please get on the same page

I thought I had done gone screwy when I saw where Goldie had pinged me today with a post entitled did someone say 'hump day'? 'cause all day I had been under the impression that today was Fat Tuesday. Well, it was Fat Tuesday for us, but seems it is already Ash Wednesday for those in the land of Oz, and likely my Kiwi friends in New Zealand as well. Now what concerns me is that I have forgotten in which direction Superman has to fly at a speed faster than light in order to go back in time. I know I knew that when I was 10 ... so how could I have forgotten such an important piece of information, now, when I probably need it more than I ever did at age 10. Of course, I now probably have more need for my name to be written in my underwear than I did when I was 10. This is not because I am any more liable to be losin' my underwear now than I was then. In neither case was that likely, as I have always managed to stay aware of the location of my underwear. No, any need for havin' identification written therein is because I am much more likely to forget who I am now that I was when I was 10. If you need any proof as to the decay of my mental processes, just notice how this post started out as a discussion of dates* and denigrated into a discussion of my underwear. Case closed, I think ... found guilty of bein' brainless.

*And, if you reread the overlooked first post of the day, you can see I was already a bit confused about whether I awoke today or tomorrow.

I have attempted for months to get someone in Australia to send me the winning numbers for each night's lottery. Yeah, ya'll might be livin' in the future, but you are keepin' all the good stuff a secret from the rest of us. ;)

that's exactly why it's so cool to be here. I promise to send you the winning lottery numbers on saturday night ;)

Cool, on that representation, I will go ahead and start maxin' out my credit cards today, knowin' I will have so much money by Monday night, I won't know what to do with it. You are a real sweetheart, Goldie! ;)

Easy to remember the superman thing. When I fly to WWDC I go east from Sydney and I arrive in the US about an hour before the plane takes off in Sydney (i.e. the time I leave home to get to the airport). When I fly back (westward) it is a night flight and I arrive early the next morning BUT I LOSE A DAY! I figure it might be better if I fly east - the flight might take longer but at least I won't lose a day....

Hmmm. According to your blog, that last comment was posted at 09:34 PM on the 1st of March. Actually it was posted at 02:34 PM on the 2nd of March :-)

See the problem is that you blog is running behind :-)

What can I say? It seems that my friends have been right all along. I truly am living in the past.
