    i'm almost always early (except work of course). all of my clocks and watches are set 15min fast. i can't deal with it when someone says they are going to be somewhere at sometime and they aren't.

    I'm so early for everything.
    I guess I'd rather take my time than be rushed.

    that's a nice collection of things you have there.
    if they can't wait for you, they must not want you to begin with.

    Haha.. story of my life.

    I never get to work on time. It's true, I'm always like an hour & a half late....

    If I say I'll arrive at 5, I won't show up until 5:20. I can't help it if the time in my world is delayed...

    I need to learn how to proof before I post

    I've got all my clocks set 15 minutes ahead as well. Funny thing is I'm usually thinking fuck I'm running late...and I end up showing up on time or early.

    but if they're important to you, you will make the effort to be on-time

    i know if something/someone is important enough, i will be there early. if not, then punctuality is not as much of an issue.

    From The Streets
    Its a beautiful song, and a little bit on topic.


    Lyrics for The Streets - It's Too Late

    She said meet me at the gates at 8
    Leave now don't be late
    She said one day she'd walk away cos I'm always late
    Thought things were ok
    Didnt care though anyway
    Say sorry babe, I had to meet a mate, tempting fate
    We first met through a shared view, she loved me and I did too
    It's now 7:50 getting ready better be nifty
    Do my hair quickly, step out it's cloudy
    Mate bells me to borrow money, I got two Henry's and a dealer to pay
    Call up on geezers to rid these green trees of my reeking jeans
    Got a you think I care outglaring geezers stares
    I'm here and I'm there
    Couldn't see past the end of my beer
    What was getting near, all the silence after the cheers

    [Chorus]

    She said meet me at the gates
    Don't be late, but pretty soon the day came for change
    And I was glad she never walked away
    So Im choosing what to wear, doing my hair with an hour to spare
    When my life went pear, she'd been there with a thick stare
    Big wheel climed to the top, geezer scares bounced off
    Standing at the top of this huge mountain, smiling and shouting
    Spring flowers sprouting, not one inch of doubt in my mind as I reached the gates
    Came round the corner at a rate
    Risked her love but Im gonna set things straight
    Never again am I gonna be late
    Never again am I gonna be late
    Never again am I gonna be late

    [Chorus]

    I said meet me at the gates
    Leave now don't be late
    I waited for a while listening to her voicemail, mind set sail
    Then the facts turned me pale, wind rain and hail
    My fears unveiled, for my fair female
    She'd walked away, too little too late
    I step up the pace, walk past the gates, rain runs over my face
    Spirit falls from grace
    I purchase a hazy escape at the alcohol place in the chase
    Sat down I got a fat frown
    Weaping and drowning my senses
    For this love game's expensive
    I walk in a trance
    Gort a wounded soldier stance
    The everyday geezers stares throw me off balance
    Now nothing holds significance
    And nothing holds relavance
    'Cause the only thing I can see is her elagance

    it took me about 20 years to understand the 'bucket on a string' metaphor from that song.
    I've been hearing that song easily since I was a baby and only now do I get it.

    You pull the bucket towards you, take all of the usefull stuff, then toss it away again. damn!
