Hello! This is [livejournal.com profile] penchaft, and I live in Australia. My time
zone is +8 GMT

Time zones are kinda a necessity, but they can be really annoying.
First of all, there's the whole working out time differences between
you and people on other continents, and god help you if there's
daylight savings anywhere. Maths is really hard, you guys!

And then there's the annoying stuff that specifically comes from being
in one of the + time zones. It's already noon, here, by the time
midnight rolls around in America, and it's in the evening when
American morning rush hour begins. So I tend to miss out things. I
don't just mean general chatting or LJ conversations or the drama that
usually occurs when I'm asleep, but special days.

Did you see LJ's April Fool's Day thing this year? Quite a few people
were complaining that it went up before the first of April (oh man,
don't get me started on how people have started using the "April
first" format here, it bugs me so much), but I was happy because this
was the first AFD in years that I had seen before the second of
April
. Then there's the special blogging days, like Blog Like It's
The End of the World or the Rabbithole day or any of the others -- if
I don't hear about them in advance, I don't find out about them until
the day after, when it's too late. :(

On the other hand, it's quite fun to stay in on New Year's Eve and
then, when it hits midnight, say hello to my European and American
friends from the fuuuutuuuuure.

I am just as boring as this blog post, hooray! :p

I got an e-mail from the future! And even though I know, logically, it's not really the future and all that, it still makes me giggle.

Also, you? Not boring at all, Miss Zombie Emus!

Lame! Your markup worked! :P

When I was in Oz, a friend would always IM and and write me from the past. He got a kick out of it.
