If I were still married to my ex-husband he would probably want to use that second to have sex. I wonder what I would use the leftover 1/2 second for? [evil]

I'll spend it trying to get used to the time change, no doubt. Adjusting the clocks always has that effect on me [Wink]

Hmmm, the leap second is at midnight GMT, which is 11am 1/1/2006 here, so I'll probably spend it swearing "never again".

I'll just have to wait for an extra second to be rich, or I'll most likely be spending it by tearing the lottery ticket apart. [weep]

I'll probably be high as hell too, so I'll really notice it, it'll be the longest second ever. [Razz]
