Timeless Saturday Random Ten

My wrist watch has been losing time.  Like, a significan amount of time per day.  So a few days ago I took it into a jeweler to be repaired, and he had to keep it.  Not having a working watch is an adjustment, and a couple of times I've grabbed for it while getting dressed in the morning.  Plus I keep asking "What time is it?" and "Is it day or night?" and "What that strange disc in sky?"

1. Bobby Mitchell & the Toppers - I'm Gonna Be a Wheel Someday
2. Elvis Costello & the Attractions - This Year's Girl
3. Kat Edmonson - Hopelessly Blue
4. XTC - The Beating of Hearts
5. The Decemberists - The Hazards of Love 3 (Revenge!)
6. Diana Krall - How Can You Mend a Broken Heart
7. The New Pornographers - Go Places
8. Brian Eno & David Byrne - Everything That Happens
9. Ben Folds Five - Do It Anyway
10. Love - Maybe the People Would Be the Times or Between Clark and Hilldale

Mine started gaining time last summer - as in about 10 minutes per hour. It turned out not to be repairable so I had to find a replacement watch that's okay but not nearly as nice. It's funny how we get attached to these things, isn't it?

Nice FR10 you have here - at least I know I like the Elvis Costello and Eno/Byrne numbers. The rest I'll take on trust.

ps: That last big disc is what they call the Snow Moon. Cool, eh?

Definitely you get used to being able to look at your wrist and go "yep." It makes me wonder about pre-Industrial times when the time of day wasn't really a big deal, except to monks.

I like the snow moon. Which is apparently called a "full bony moon" in some quarters.
