1-2-3-4-5-6

On Wednesday, at two minutes and three seconds after 1:00
in the morning, the time and date will be 01:02:03 04/05/06.

This will happen a total of 37 times and not again for another hundred years.

It gets me thinking. Am I taking every opportunity to be a part of moments that may never happen again in my lifetime?

Usually, I'm sleeping at 1:02:03 on Wednesday mornings. This time though, maybe I'll wake up and take a minute to remind myself not to "sleep" through anything that I'll only see once.

Or maybe I'll just take that moment now. I'm not Miss Sunshine when I have to wake up in the middle of the night.

FUN!! I'm in!! At least long enough to hit the off button on the alarm and then note the time has just passed because it took me that long to figure out why the alarm went off. :)

But then there was an extra second at this New Years and I made a whole group of people jump into the air at midnight for a LEAP-second.

:) My mother emailed me with this fun fact just the other day.

If I hear this fact one more time I'm going to scream. LOL. Frankly speaking at that hour of the morning I'm in deep REM and i could really care less about missing this fantastic fact of life. Especially since I risk spending the night as an insomiac and being a zombie all day at work. Then again...good way to remember the moment forever. That one time...at band camp...I didn't sleep and 01-02-03-04-05....

Like I said, take the moment now.

Such deep thoughts. They say live in the moment, and I tend to agree.

I'll join you in celebrating now - Wednesday morning is too much effort!
