I like the way it re-establishes the arbitrariness of the clock. Twice a year we get reminded it could anything, like 168.6 bleens in a bkkchh, 72 bkkchhs in a mcvlky.

DS

PS - I recall vaguely an experiment in London in 68, NOT going off DST. I took the 207 bus down Uxbridge Road to school in Acton at night. The sun came up sometime after 8. Its a visual impression I'll never forget, walking to the bus in the dark by those incredible amber lights.

I was an hour late for everything yesterday!  I did not know it was changing, and didn't even realize i was running late until i sent a text and my iPhone clock was outta sync with my whole world....

Maybe next time the REP forum should announce it a day ahead for those of us who live in caves... yes that's it... it was REP's fault!  I feel better knowing that.

 DS means i get time for a surf after my working day. Not as great when the kids were younger as they tend to stay up too late. I remember them getting tired and ratty by the end of DS each year.

I love daylight savings. Not looking forward to going back to darkness this year.

Arizona doesn't do daylight savings and I like it.

We don't do Daylight Saving Time either, and I like it too.

That's right, "Saving" is not plural, in spite of what the announcer on KUAT said.

Same thing happened to me. I was an hour late for work.

You only get that excuse once a year, so why not? hahaha.


Oh, and I still feel "jet lagged". I've been having a really hard time sleeping the last 2 nights. Worse than usual. Anyone else have that problem when DST happens? I feel like it happens to me every year.

Yup. Haven't slept more than an hour or two since Sunday.

For the folks who don't care for it, look on the bright side. It should be a nice little shot in the arm for the economy. More daylight hours, more activity, more retail hours, etc. I know I've been suffering from a bit of cabin fever. Sunlight is an amazing rejuvenator. Cool

What do farmers and cows have to do with it?  The cows get up when they get up, regardless of what number a clock displays, no?

Music can make me get right up out of my chair and start dancing or it can get me so pumped up I have to walk around the block.
It can also knock me back and make me sit there and cry like a little baby. This shit is as powerful as any drug!!!
