Time Off or Time Well Spent
Finally, we have a solution to this problem. If there isn’t enough time to finish your project list then we will just add the time to the clock. 2008 is the year that you will have the time to finish them all and you can no longer use the excuse that you did not have the time.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Those eager to put 2008 behind them will have to hold their good-byes for just a moment this New Year's Eve.
The world's official timekeepers have added a "leap second" to the last day of the year on Wednesday, to help match clocks to the Earth's slowing spin on its axis, which takes place at ever-changing rates affected by tides and other factors.
The U.S. Naval Observatory, keeper of the Pentagon's master clock, said it would add the extra second on Wednesday in coordination with the world's atomic clocks at 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds Coordinated Universal Time, or UTC. - Reuters
Great, now I have to go around the house and adjust all the damn clocks. I could swear that I just did that for Daylight Savings a couple of weeks ago. Then again, on Wednesday I could just go to bed early and promise that in 2009 the Honey Do and or Dreaded Lists will get tackled and accomplished. Ya, that’s it, that’s the story I’m going with.
