Eleven Eleven...make a wish!

Did you ever do that? Look at the clock and see that it was 11:11? At some point in my life, I found that it was cool to make a wish when that happened. Someone would notice the time and say "Eleven Eleven, make a wish!"

Now, there are some people who have taken that concept a bit too far.

Today is 11/11/2005. I wonder how many people will look at the clock today and see that it is 11:11 on 11/11? What are they going to do, make a super special wish? I wonder what the folks back in the year 1111 did?

"Morning, chap."

"I do say, it is a most agreeable prospect."

"Good heaven's man, look at the time."

"Oh poppycock!"

"What do you mean poppycock? It's eleven eleven on eleven eleven, eleven eleven AD!"

"But I'm eleven minutes late for my morning crumpets and tea!"

Eleven Eleven on Eleven Eleven, Eleven Eleven AD. Wouldn't that have been crazy? Ever since 1259 AD, there hasn't been a year where the time could match the year...that is unless of course you're using military time and then you've got until 2400.

I'm saying that when the earth is aligned with the tri-oscillation plate voltage refracting mechanism of the grodnead quadrant, there appears to be an instability that propagates forth from the directly polarized photoelectric molecular reconstitutor.

That wasn't abundantly clear?

Man I am teh suck at blogging. -_-

"Oh Poppycock!"

Just some of the lingo we use around our house on a daily basis.

I was trying to emulate the vernacular of the eleventh century earth citizen.

Hey Nate, remember that time when Mom and Dad bought a new microwave, and the time said 1111, but they thought it was broken? (You know how when the power goes out there will be some lines to show that the microwave was messed up, or the clock anyway) They stood there just staring at it in wonder when all of a sudden the time switched to 1112 LOL

FYI - On 11/11 at 1100 the peace agreement to end WWI was signed. Armistice day. That is why Veterans Day is always celebrated on 11/11 and the tribute services to Veterans living and dead are always at 1100am.
