Unfortunately you are going to have to blame a Canadian this time, Sir Stanford Flemming.

Bastard! Tongue

Anyone up for a rousing chorus of "Blame Canada"? :p

You Canadians are all the same, with your beady eyes and flapping faces!

Yeah, but the Americans have Celine Dion and William Shatner, so it's all a wash.

From experience, bisexual men can be late to stuff too.

He's not a scientist or engineer of some sort, is he?

If he is, especially if his specific scientific field is computer science, he probably considers dinner time to be about 5am. 9:30pm is probably what he considered 'breakfast time'. 'lunch time' if you're lucky.

My point exactly. Most scientists and engineers seem to be disorganised sorts, though.

That's not really an excuse to stand somebody up. "Oh, I'm too smart to know how to buy an alarm clock."

Alarm clocks? I don't need those - my internal clock always gets me where I need to be half an hour early

Not too smart to buy one, too buried in interesting puzzles to realise that it's going off.

Happened to me a few times. Organic alarm clocks are much more reliable. Tongue

Apparentally NOT if you're needing to justifiying being late all the time. If you were never late to anything, there would be no need for justification.

That sounds a little like paranoia of being late. I don't ever see the real reason to be early to stuff by that large a margin. I mean, if they wanted me there at 8, don't tell me to be there by 8:30.

That's nothing. I once didn't realise the school bell was going off because I was too engrossed in a book in the library Smiley

As for alarm clocks - don't use them to do anything but get up because I would never remember to set the thing. I usually forget to deset the thing when I've finished with it as an alarm clock.

I had an alarm clock. And then it became part of a Rube Goldberg Machine, and thereafter didn't keep time very well. The replacement I got isn't much better; despite being digital, it gains nearly 5 minutes a week. So until I shell out the cash for an atomic clock, I'm used to being perpetually early by a large margin. I'm part of a very rare breed of engineers indeed.

It sounds like you got a shitty clock; not all digital clocks get that bad that fast (even though, you should probably reset it every year or so, but you end up needing to twice for Daylight Saving Time anyways). I don't personally set alarms for most things, but, if it was important enough, like, say a date, and I KNEW I was going to to be distracted, like, reading, I would set an alarm on my cellphone. Actually, I do this while cooking.

Nah, he's a cook and a general manager at my favorite pizzaria.  Ultimately it all went well.  I have learned that my new beau simply doesn't sleep at night, and instead sleeps during the day.  I was there till four last night watching movies and had to haul my ass to work at 9 am this morning.  He's agreed that next time we will do this during the day, and he can be sleep deprived.  smiley

I think that he could at least call, or warn you of that >.>
