Okay so as you all know Earth Hour is on Saturday and we're supposed to turn out all the lights at 8:30 PM for an hour. So I figure we'll light some candles, put on some good mood music (an ipod and some portable speakers of course.. no electricity) and take advantage of the darkness :lol:. I need a playlist though. So far I have a few of my favourites:

Wicked Game - Chris Isaak
Something - from the Across the Universe Soundtrack
If I Fell - from the Across the Universe Soundtrack

See.. a lot of our friends have announced pregnancies the past few months, so we're both kind of having a bit of baby envy the past little while. I figure this is a good way to snap us out of it and make us appreciate the fact that we don't have kids yet :lol:

I have dinner reservations, I hope they aren't observing this ridiculous idea during our dinner. I know, shame on me, but we turn our lights off every night when we go to bed and when we leave the house. What the hell do I need to do it for an extra hour in the middle of the day for? Flame away...

So do we.. I think it's just supposed to make a statement of some sort. Whatever.. I don't imagine restaurants will shut everything down in the middle of their dinner hour so I don't think you have to worry :lol:

We are doing Earth Hour at work. The Sustainability Coordinator is going into work and turning the lights off. She is also going around and checking who has turned their computers off and if they have she will leave a chocolate frog on their desk.

However she wasn't at work today. So we switched her monitor back on (not her computer only her monitor). Naughty I know but it will be interesting to see if she notices.

I was at a restaurant the first year this happened - they dimmed the lights to the minimum you need to still be able to see and get around safely, but everything was business as usual otherwise.

The organization I work for participated in Earth Hour last year by shutting down their website (the buildings were also closed and lights were off).

It was supposed to read "EARTH HOUR" and include a clock.

Something obviously happened because the website failed to shut down until the last 5 minutes of the Hour:eek: So the running joke is we had our Earth Minute :lol:

I'm hoping they have fixed it for this year...

This happened to us, too. It was kind of nice, actually, to have the lights dimmed. :) Maybe if they do the same, BigB088, it won't be so bad.

Sounds like a great atmosphere to make babies. :lol:

I'm working Sat night for Earth Hour. I wonder how vented patients would feel about the vent just being turned off for one hour, in the spirit of going green? (of course, they would be going blue instead, but hey, it's a color, right?)

I think the whole idea behind Earth Hour was for people AT HOME to use no electricity. It's nice if businesses do it, but I wouldn't expect anyone to do so.

We participated last year at work. We just told all the guests that we would be turning as many lights out in the buildings as was safe and invited them down to sit by the fireplace outside and roast marshmallows for an hour. It actually worked out well. If it was the middle of summer it wouldn't have but we're not overly busy at this time of year.
