“You can’t turn back the clock. But you can wind it up again.” — Bonnie Prudden

So, this quote from Bonnie Prudden – who, according to Wikipedia, was a rock climber – relates to this entry on a few different levels that I’m proud of.  First off: yeah, I didn’t stick with the every weekend blogging idea.  New idea, how about I blog when I feel like it/have time to/have something to write about?  Yes, I like that idea much better.  So that’s what I’ll be doing.  You may not hear from me for weeks on end and then get a few entries all at once, much like oh, I don’t know, most blogs in the entire world.  Not that I’m bitter about the time that it took me to realize that I could just blog when I felt like it (hint: it took a while…).  But I’m okay with that.  Actually, I’m more excited about blogging now that I don’t have to feel guilty about forgetting for months.  Oops.

Anyway, this quote also works on another level, because this entry is really about the coolest clock I’ve ever seen.  Disclaimer: I don’t actually own this, so I can’t verify for how well it works.  Still, if it does work, it’s amazingly cool.  And I kind of want one, even though I already have a clock.  So, I guess it wouldn’t be that green to order 10,000 of them right now for myself and everyone I know. Drat.

So, this clock.  Apparently, it runs on water and lemon juice. . . here’s their explanation: “Just fill the tank with natural tap water … add a splash of natural lemon juice … and you’re set for 6 to 8 weeks of accurate timekeeping before refreshing.”  Interesting.  Unfortunately, there aren’t any product reviews yet, so I can’t tell if it actually works.  Anyone intrigued enough to shell out $16 for a potentially awesome clock that you will never, ever need electricity or batteries for?  Let me know if you try it!
