I'll settle for three socks and a burrito if they'll just leave my clock alone

Things we may eventually find on Mars:

* Starbucks
* Free high speed Internet
* Jimmy Hoffa
* All the socks I keep losing
* A Taco Bell which has NOT removed the Cheesy Gordita Crunch from its menu
* Bigfoot
* My dignity
* Mars Bars
* Someone who may actually be able to explain why we still bother with Daylight Savings Time

DST was originally set up to extend the day so that you would use less electricity lighting your home, and candles.
Jimmy Hoffa On Mars...Sounds like a 60's Sci-Fi flick
Loved your 55 My Dear...
You are like a Walmart at Christmas, with No Salvation Army Bell Ringers!!
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

Brian: Sadly, I've never been to one! (!!)

G-Man: Funny you should mention the part about the bell ringers; I noticed one at the store this evening. Ugh. Can't believe it's that time of year already. Where did 2010 go??

Boy I do wish they would leave our clocks alone! I do not want my lost socks in a time capsule, but I'd like
to find them- I know what you mean about menu changes,subway took off their cranberry chicken.... Thanks!

Mars Bars on Mars? You've got to be kidding. Is there a planet in this galaxy called Oh Henry?

hedgewitch said...

Still smiling. I find myself rather food oriented this time of day also. I'm searching for a Mars Bar in the middle of the Milky Way??

You need to get one of those automatic clocks that sets itself to daylight savings time and even re-sets itself when the power goes out.

You're right about Starbucks - they will definitely be the first coffee place on Mars.

Cheesy Gordita Crunches were pretty epic. I keep hoping Taco Bell will start serving breakfast. (there's one on my way to work - breakfast burrito!)

Another fun 55, Janna! :)

I think they should take all the Starbucks to Mars.

Jingle said...

lovely list,
informative 55.

hehe...awesome!! Love your list!!
And as for clocks, guess what! I have so many watches, that with every time the DST thingie happens, I have to sit and change the time on each of my 20+ watches!! Yea... I know.. crazy!!! :)

They'll never find Bigfoot on Mars. Bigfoots (Bigfeets?) like trees, and I don't think there are any trees on Mars.

Janna said...

izzy: Subway had cranberry chicken? Really? Wow, I don't remember that. It sounds good, actually...

nonamedufus: Oh Henry is the next planet after the Reese's Cup nebula. Just to the left of the York Peppermint Patty Supernova. Watch out for the licorice black hole.

Hedgewitch: My favorite is Butterfinger, I think. Possibly Twix. :)

Eric: Oooh, a few years ago there was a Taco Bell over here that DID serve breakfast. I always meant to go check it out, but never got a chance to-- and then they discontinued it. :(

MonkeyMan: But then all the Martians would be hyped up on caffeine and they'd use all that extra energy to invade us and steal all our donuts to dunk in their coffee.

Jingle: Thanks for visiting!

kavisionz: Twenty? Wow!

MikeWJ: Maybe the Martian bigfeet live underground in the massive Martian forests we haven't discovered yet. I hear they're lovely. (The forests, not the bigfeet.)

I hope you are right on that last one.

Janna said...

Marla: I'm wrong a lot, so keep those expectations low. :)
