This year my family rung in the New Year in two time zones! We celebrated in Pacific Standard Time, and in Nenni Not-So-Standard Time. No planes, trains or automobiles involved. Just a remote.
We gathered around the TV close to midnight to watch the ball drop. We couldn't help but notice that NBC was 2 minutes behind the actual time shown on our atomic clocks. Midnight came first on our clocks, and we yelled, "Woo Hoo....Happy New Year", etc. Two minutes later, the ball dropped and we celebrated again. The problem? Well at 2 minutes (4 minutes actually) after midnight, we thought about it and pressed the fast forward button on our DVR remote. We must have hit the pause button eariler and never caught up, LOL!
