    Yah, which is stupid because it should be done on sunday night so we all get the extra hour when we REALLY need it (an extra hour before work/school)

    You all do. I'm in the middle of an experiment, so the actual time on the clock is irrelevant. We will have Eastern Time and Experiment Time here. :rolleyes: :grumpy: It was rather challenging figuring out how to put together this schedule, and fortunately, it turned out that I could arrange it so the 2 AM samples aren't collected until Monday night, so now they are 1 AM samples and I'm the only one who has to keep track that 7 AM really is 12 hours after 8 PM.

    I have to take blood samples from sheep for the next 4 days, all timed relative to the injection they got today. So, while all the rest of you are sleeping in an extra hour tomorrow, I have to be at the farm taking a sample at 7 AM instead of 8 AM (12 hours from the injection given at 8 PM tonight). I don't get to appreciate the time change with an extra hour of sleep. Did I make more sense this time? It might be the last I make sense until Thursday...it'll be another week of sleep-deprivation for me.

    Sounds like what you need is a bit of sheep-deprivation. :wink: :biggrin:

    :rofl: Tell me about it! My back is already killing me from lifting a 112 kg (that's almost 250 lbs for the metric-challenged) sheep yesterday (with help, but not enough help). I came home yesterday and fell asleep on the couch before even making dinner, then had to struggle to stay awake just to heat up some soup. I really could use that extra hour of sleep, and I'm not going to get it. :cry:

    Well it is good that we are going back. The last few nights I have been sleeping a little later than I should, and now today I will be back on track for a while.

    250lbs, WHAT?!?!? I must have missed your huge biceps in your picture :smile:

    :biggrin: Yep, I'm in sheep shape now. (Aw, these jokes would make Ivan proud. :tongue2:)

    I had someone to help with the lifting, but she was a monster, and I think I got the heavy end (they are usually around 70 kg...more like 150 lb that two people can easily lift). Between the stair-climbing from the parking lot (I can almost get to the top without getting winded now) and the sheep lifting, they're making sure I get a good workout around here.
