Apparently the biggest factor in the amount of sleep we get is whether or not we have a job. Earlier this week, the Washington Post featured an article on a new report, 'Not So Deprived: Sleep in America, 1965-2005,' that found that employment status had a greater effect on sleep than age, race, or sex.
Are we living on borrowed time today? Should we celebrate having an extra day in 2008? One tradition apparently marked Leap Day as a time for women to propose to men (and no, February 29th is not Sadie Hawkins Day). I for one would love to start a tradition of writing yourself a letter every February 29th, not to be opened until the following Leap Year. And I thoroughly support the idea of wishing one another a 'Happy Bissextile Day.' Not to mention listening to Time and Beyond Time. And if you still have some extra time on your hands, check out this website on calendars.
