If you ever see me looking down at my watch for an inordinate amount of time it’s probably not because I have somewhere important to be or because I have forgotten how to read time. If you see me having a staring contest with my watch it’s probably because I am waiting to see a particular time and, being that each time only lasts for one second, I don’t want to risk missing it. I guess technically each time happens twice a day, but I’m usually only awake for one of them.
I’m not entirely sure why, but I really like times that are all the same number (3:33:33, 4:44:44, etc.) and to a lesser extent, times that are made up of consecutive numbers (1:23:45, 4:32:10, etc.) and times that are made up of three two-digit numbers (10:10:10, 12:12:12, etc.).
What I am really looking forward to though is November 11, 2011 at 11:11:11. That will be 11-11-11 11:11:11 – the most of any single number that you can possibly have in a row! I realize it’s weird and a little pathetic, but I have been looking forward to it for several months already and am thinking about having a party to celebrate that once-in-a-lifetime day. It’s on a Friday, so just let me know if you can’t make it to the AM version (totally understandable with work and all). Whether the AM, PM, or both times – everyone is invited to join in the celebration!
Am I the only one who feels this way? Any ideas for celebrating the big day?
