Would that be a decaf, or full-on espresso, because I need know whether or not you take caffine with your hot brewed beverage, because some people do not like caffine in their beverage.

Watch you mean, "pun time?"

you fail to mention the times you've lost your cellphone, as well, babycakes.
actually, i mentioned the loss of some cell phones in my opening post. but yes, i'll agree with Ralphie. Stop being such a SQUARE. [Razz]

My best cell phone loss ever was at the top of a ski slope, while skiing. Which then proceeded to be found in perfect working condition by another skier, who phoned the number for "Mom", and got my address to send it back to me. and he only ran me up $30 in long distance fees for his effort...

now losing cell phone chargers...that's a different story alltogether.

I always used to wear a watch, and have it set to the exact right time. I had a watch tan line and all. Now, I never do, I don't think I've even owned a watch for the past five years. Not because I don't need to know the time (and yes I do use my cellphone for that) but because I find a watch gets in the way too much. Especially when I'm riding (horses) or, well, doing anything really. I don't know how people (particularly guys) wear those huge watches with all the gadgets - it would just annoy me. Not knowing the time annoys me, but not enough to make me wear a watch. [Dont Know]

EDIT for elimination of potential embarrassment. [Razz]

Greg, are you sure your best cell phone-loss story isn't the one where you lost your cell phone on a roller coaster.

Twice.

On the same rollercoaster.

I wear a watch constantly, except for when I'm swimming. I sleep and shower with my watch on. I have a blindingly white space where my watch is, which is always commented on when I am swimming (being the only time people can see it).
Being a disorganized sort of person, my watch does not rule my life because I'm not really worried about being late. I just being the one with the time when no one else knows it. It must be something to do with power.

What is it with watch-wearers and their insistance that they're disorganized?

Us Time Piece Liberateds don't have to advertise that we're disorganized. We're comfortable in our disorganization. It's self-evident. [Razz]

Amanda, you crack me up! [Big Grin]

I actually saw this thread just after it was posted, but I didn't have time to write up my quirk because I had to go to the dentist.( [Mad] )

Anyway, my watch thing is different than anyone I've met except my dad (we decided it's genetic [Wink] ). Oh where to begin...

First of all, I wear my watch everyday. When I forget to put it on in the morning I feel lost all day. It's not that I always need to know what time it is, I just always have to be able to find out what time it is at any point.

I not only can't sleep in my watch, but at some point every night I take off my watch because it becomes offensive to me. (That's the only word I can think of to describe it.) It's a different time every night, but it just happens. Suddenly I can't stand to have my watch on my wrist anymore. If I were to talk to my watch (which I don't [Wink] ) I would say something like "How dare you still be on my wrist!" It's actually quite aggravating. If it's particularly bad I'll literally throw my watch across the room. (Damander can testify to that one.)

Also, I never take off my watch when I'm taking a nap. It's probably because that way I won't sleep for more than a couple hours. But nap sleeping is definitely different that real sleeping. [Smile]

The other weird thing is that I take off my watch when I'm studying or doing homework, but I've found quite a few people who do that. I just take it off and set it next to the books or the computer or whatever.

[Embarrassed] Yeah, I'm weird...

I used to always wear my watch. After a couple years, the strap broke, so I got a new one. Three weeks later, the new one broke. I got another new one. This one lasted, oh, a few months. From that point on, I've kept my watch in either my pants pocket or in my outside purse pocket.

I do own a cell phone, but it's one of those ghetto analog ones that don't tell time, don't take messages, and don't give you phone numbers for people who've called. It's basically worthless, except for emergencies (which, in retrospect, is exactly why I got it [Smile] ).

OH OH OH OH!!!!!

I just recently got a really nifty watch! The display is inverted, so the numbers are white instead of black, because the background is being displayed with the liquid crystal instead of the numbers. Looks really cool and impresses people. [Cool]

I lost every watch and cell phone I owned until my kids were born. Previous to this, I would wear a watch as an accessory and my cell phone, if not lost, always had a dead battery.

These days, the only time I am without my watch or cell phone is when both kids are with me.

I fear I am becoming an official watch-wearer. As proof, I apologized at least three times today for being disorganized. [Angst]

I am time piece liberated.

I operate on a direct link with the earth's rotational rhythms.

I haven't worn a watch since 7th grade, yet I am anally organized and always 10 minutes early. To everything.

I recently acquired a watch from a moving-out roommate. I wear it, but only because I have it set on military time, and I'm trying to become adjusted to it so I can know what time 21:35 is without having to do any math. After I have fully converted to the 24-hour clock, I shall stop wearing it, which I look forward to since it is ugly and has a bulbous head.

My roommates and I talk about my watch's bulbous head quite often. It's very funny.

I also enjoy saying "Lumos," and then pushing the indiglo button.

However, I encourage all of you to LIBERATE YOURSELVES FROM WRIST SLAVERY! There are enough clocks in the world that you can glance from time to time and develop a sense for your cicadian rhythm (I know cicadian isn't the right word, but it sounds snazzy) and learn to tell your own time.

Free yourself from the bulbous head!

Alas! My poor watches! I knew them half past as well as I would have liked and only a quarter of which I didn't. I've lost them. I've dropped them. I've crushed them under foot looking for them after thinking I lost them and actually had only dropped them. I've made them stop, and no matter how much winding I do they just won't tick again. I've tried a digital one, hoping I would fair better with electronics (the lcd face cracked). I've even tried a pocket watch because I thought the curse was only with wrist watches. Nope... the curse continued. [Wall Bash]

I just have to admit it. Watches and me just can't get along. [Dont Know]

However, I do have luck with clocks in cellphones and timers on vcr's. They have not failed me, yet.

It's good to know I'm not the only one who loses watches. I usually remember all my other assorted accessories but the watch always manages to disappear. I gave up even trying my senior year of High School. Now time only exists in other people's minds... [Razz]

With a watch I am often late, and constantly lose track of time. I shudder to think what I would be like without one!

Uh, nope, nope, I wish!, and a definite nope.

But my watch does have a calculator in it, so I can figure out which size of cereal to buy at the supermarket. [Big Grin]

They're usually five minutes early for everything (I mean, not by accident) and they get anxious when it's been three thousand miles and they haven't had the oil changed.

They're fascinating, exotic creatures and one of them makes my insouciant lifestyle possible. I appreciate watch-wearers, even if I don't quite understand them.

I've never felt more accurately described by a general statement. I wear a watch. While awake I synchronize my watch with the official U.S. time on the hour, every hour. However, I've noticed that the java applet at that site is only accurate to a few hundredths of a second and the possibility of error vexes and worries me. I wear my watch centered on my arm exactly 1.80 inches from the end of my tibia (I use a micrometer for bi-hourly checks [still, I'm a little worried about the precision offered by that instrument so I'm saving up for a laser rangefinder]).

I carry my cell phone with me everywhere, and it is always on. I still use the first phone I ever got, because the thought of the downtime involved in switching the SIM card to a new phone is too horrifying to contemplate. This is mildly inconvenient, as my phone only barely fits in my backpack and weighs 76.3 pounds, but it's a small price to pay for connectivity. The off button is so underused that it has now completed the process of petrification. The battery has become so worn out that it no longer holds a charge and I have to carry a portable gasoline-powered generator with me at all times. I keep my phone on in movies, restaurants and funeral homes, with the ringer at the maximum volume and the vibrating alert and flashing lights enabled. I take my phone with me to bed, to the pool, to the beach and in the shower. I don't sleep through the night because I wake up every half hour to check to see if I missed any calls.

I honestly have no idea how anyone could live with unalphabetized cereal boxes. In fact, my cereal boxes are also color- and size-coordinated. I get a complete oil and filter change every 65 miles when I get home from work; it's better safe than sorry. I vacuum between the keys on my keyboard at the beginning and end of every work day. At any given time my pockets contain my cell phone, my keys, my wallet, Listerine Flash Strips, hand sanitizer, a full setting of silverware, a Red Cross-certified first aid kit complete with automatic external defibrillator, three pens (black, blue and red), two sharpened #1.5 pencils, a pencil sharpener, a collection of spices, contact lens solution (I don't wear contacts), eye drops, nasal spray, laxatives, antacid and a condom (I have a lot of pockets).

Now, if you'll excuse me, I've just noticed that someone has used one of my #2 pencils and put it back in the jar that has the #1.5 pencils. I'll have to completely reorganize my entire drafting set.

I wear a watch and am copmletely ruled by time, thank-you very much. [Wink] I always arrive early, I get really anxious when I think I'm not going to make it (if I'm ever late to go somewhere, make sure your no where near). I update my computer clock to the atomic every day or so using a program called NistTime and set my watch to the computer around once a week. When someone asks me the time I read it off to the nearest second.

I am strangely haunted by the "cicadian rhythm" outside my window in the summer time. [Smile]

Yes, I wear a watch and, yes, I own a cell phone.

My cell phone I use almost exclusively for work. I turn it on when I head to work in the morning and turn it off when I get home. It carry it in my pocket or put in my cupholder (when I am driving between sites). On the weekends it usually stays off (unless I need to go somewhere and am expecting a family member to call me).

I put on my watch when I go to work in the morning and I take it off when I get home. I sometimes wear it on the weekends while running errands (if I have a schedule I need to keep).

I like having a watch in addition to a cell phone, because I often need to time tests that are running at work and it is a pain to contantly pull the phone out of my pocket and open it to see what time it is. I also need my watch to tell me at a quick glance the date so I can write it on my paperwork (again without the hassle of removing the phone from my pocket and opening it).

Who wouldn't wear a watch? *Staggers backwards* You mean walk around w/o having any sense of time besides that of the sun? I'm just kidding. Although I do always wear a watch. However, I tend to swim with my watches on and you know what happens to the curious watch. You would think that after enough times, I'd remember to take it off. [Wall Bash]

I wear a watch constantly, not because I am organized, but because I am utterly disorganized. I know, I know, we all say that, but in my case it is true. My home has dirty clothes all over the floor; the entire couch is filled with things I didn't put away, as are several chairs and my computer table.

Nor do I have any appreciable circadian rhythm. I literally cannot tell the difference between five minutes passing and an hour passing--I must look at a clock to tell this. This was true even before I began to work nights; now I do not even know what day it is half the time. It drives me crazy that Cracker Barrel will not let me wear a watch while I wash dishes; I cannot tell how much longer I have to work, which drives me loopy. (There are clocks on the walls, but I can't see them from where I'm usually standing. It's when things are at their worst and I can't move a step from my position without plates crashing to the floor that I most want to know when I can go home.)

Therefore I wear a watch whenever remotely possible (and allowed)--swimming, showering, in bed--always. (Though otherwise clearheaded immediately on waking, I have been known to get up in the middle of the night because I thought it was time to get ready for work or school.)

My watches have typically rewarded me by living long, healthy lives, albeit not without occasional repairs. I wore one particularly long-lasting watch for over ten years through two watchbands, perhaps three. Unfortunately, I eventually forgot to remove it before going into the water at a lake. I took it off first, then replaced it when I got out, and later returned to board a canoe. The canoe toppled over, my watch (as well as myself) was soaked, and soon thereafter a black digital stain began spreading across its face. Still, I wore it for another year or so before the stain reached far enough that I could no longer tell the time and I had to buy another.

One is always a slave to time, but wearing a watch will help one avoid beatings.

I've owned plenty of them, but I never feel motivated to wear one very often. I'll start, and then one morning I'll forget to put it back on and suddenly realize I haven't seen it in three months.

I do have a black leather watch I keep for sentimental reasons and wear when I dress up, but that's mostly for the pun.

I wear a watch and have a cell phone. Always good to have both! And my watch is also half jewlery...it's one of those really super cool solid metal band watches. So cool!

I wear wristwatch all the time, except for when I am asleep and home (have clock in every room to check time). I would go crazy if I didn't wear my watch. I also carry cell phone, actually 2 cells phones (one of them is business). Used to hate cell phones, but became to like them [Smile]

He's probably a little busy getting beat up by Bruce Leroy.

So, it's been like 8 months since I wrote that post and I just realized that there's an error in it that no one ever pointed out. Five points to whoever finds it first.

Well, the pocket that holds your cell phone must be fairly large . . .

And why the heck is your watch on your LEG?
