Daylight Savings Time

We hates it, precious. We hates the Daylight Savings Time forever.

I ought to go to bed but I am not tired because I think it's an hour earlier than the clock says it is. It's really hard for me to transition, given my natural night owl tendencies. If I could change one thing about myself, it would be my circadian rhythms. I'd love to be an early bird like so much of the rest of the world.

The time change always screws me up for weeks. Husband hates it, too, and he is actually a morning person.

And it's earlier this year than ever. I don't really see how this saves energy overall, especially when we're in a drought here in Georgia: people will be using an hour's worth more water each day.

Heh, I'm a night owl, yet I love it. The adjustment is a tad annoying, but that extra hour of sun in the afternoon means so much for me in terms of exercise and enjoyment... I am simply not present for mornings, ever, and so having sun until 7 instead of 6 or whatever is a huge improvement in my life. Of course, if I had my way we'd shift an hour earlier all year long - maybe we could compromise on that?

Well, I have an additional bias against the sun due to my rosacea -- the big yellow in the sky isn't my personal friend, although I do tolerate it based on its ability to, you know, keep the planet running what with photosynthesis and all. My feeling toward the sun is like my feeling toward a manager with an abrasive personality who is really, really, really good at his job: I may not like him, but I know full well that he keeps the trains running on time, so I just avoid him and let him do what he does best. :)
