We have two clocks in our house and a couple wristwatches from decades ago. It makes telling time more interesting I think.

I changed my clocks at two am (had the coffee maker and microwave synced perfectly) only to have the power go out a few hours later. The dance of the insane happened twice within 9 hours for me.

I agree. I prefer "quarter to twelve" much more than "11:45".

I walk, climb and manipulate my clocks with my cell phone in hand. One round of the clocks (5) and they are perfectly in sync. (Ooops!! forgot my car... gotta get the owner's manual out for that one tho')

Well, I guess I need to be heading for my jammies...it's nearly half-past nine! (Sounds so much better than 9:24)

Cause dearie, when you were bad, your mommy and daddy threatened you by saying, "Do that one more time, and you're going to bed!!!!"

Mine never threatened me like that... They always said, "Do that one more time, and I will beat the liver out of you!!!" So I went and hid in bed instead.
