Yo. Yo.

Looking for some silly on your Monday? You found it.

Say what you want about Bloodhound Gang, but they are genius when it comes to lyrics. "No I'm not black like Barry White, I am white like Frank Black is"? Classic.

And this vid is work and kid safe. All the MFs have been edited out for your listening pleasure. Enjoy.

No, It's Not Coming...

spring, that is. Anytime soon. We have now officially reached the time of year when Kirdy begins bitching about all things winter.

Snow. Tomorrow. Again. Currently I'd say we have about 36" on the level. Yep, as in three feet. I embraced my inner dude yesterday and used the snow blower for the first time. I had no choice. Mr. Chaos was out of town and I got the minivan stuck in the driveway.

Yee haw.

The system coming in tomorrow has forecast to dump another 6-10", but they may have to increase those totals if the system has more moisture.

In other words, Kirdy is screwed.

It makes me grumpy, particularly if I stop to think what these systems might be doing if it were spring. You know how much energy a winter system requires to produce thunder? I had heard thunder during snow twice in my life before this winter. Now I have heard it four times.

And to keep this mundane post a bit exciting, a preview of tomorrow's funfest:

It's coming! It's coming!

Starting in 2007, daylight time begins in the United States on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November. On the second Sunday in March, clocks are set ahead one hour at 2:00 a.m. local standard time, which becomes 3:00 a.m. local daylight time. On the first Sunday in November, clocks are set back one hour at 2:00 a.m. local daylight time, which becomes 1:00 a.m. local standard time. These dates were established by the Energy Policy Act of 2005, Pub. L. no. 109-58, 119 Stat 594 (2005).

Not all places in the U.S. observe daylight time. In particular, Hawaii and most of Arizona do not use it. Indiana adopted its use beginning in 2006.

* In 2006, daylight time begins on April 2 and ends on October 29.
* In 2007, daylight time begins on March 11 and ends on November 4. [New law goes into effect.]
* In 2008, daylight time begins on March 9 and ends on November 2.
* In 2009, daylight time begins on March 8 and ends on November 1.

Many other countries observe some form of "summer time", but they do not necessarily change their clocks on the same dates as the U.S.

This friendly social studies lesson was brought to you by the numbers 3/9, the letters DST, and the Kirdy Loves Spring Association.

(hey....if it was -37 where you were for a windchill the last two days, you'd be grasping at any sign of impending warmth, too)

Something to get you up and moving today. This song always makes me want to move.
