Time after time

Remember that “Saved by the Bell” episode where Jessie Spanno got addicted to caffeine pills and shouted at Zack that “there’s NEVER ANY TIME!” Well, it turns out that she was right. From February 25 through March 1, there isn’t any time at all.


We’re in the middle of what Bahai’s call Ayyam-i-Ha, or the Intercalary Days. The Baha'i calendar is made up of 19 months of 19 days each. The period of Ayyam-i-Ha adjusts the Bahá'í year to the solar cycle. While these days are set aside for hospitality, gift giving, special acts of charity, and preparing for the Baha'i Fast, I plan on also spending them watching as many time travel movies as I can. So far, I’ll be watching Back to the Future 1-3, 12 Monkeys, Flight of the Navigator, Terminator 1-3, Planet of the Apes and Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure. :-) Allah'u'Abha!

  • don't forget the butterfly effect.

    there's a bright eyes lyric that i think applies very nicely here: "you're be free, child, once you have died, from the shackles of language of measurable time."

    it sounds like the intercalary days wouldn't be much different from drinking yourself into a stupor, which is what i recommend for you

  • Saved by the Bell? Seriously? You can't do any better than that?

    Enjoy your time away from time...we'll see you when you get back.

  • What's wrong with Saved by the Bell? I love Marky Mark. Oh, wait...or was Zack played by Charleton Heston?

  • Zach was played by Mark Paul Goselar (sp?) who is niether Marky Mark nor Charleton Heston. How scary is it that I know that without looking it up?
