...and deservedly so.

It must be said, again.

Daylight Savings Time is here and verily it doth give most grievous suck.

I HATE Daylight Savings Time. I hate losing a perfectly good hour of sleep, especially since I normally only get four. Also, given that NTS inherited my insomnia gene, it means he's going to be up at 5am, instead of 6am. I hate daylight until 8pm (or worse, the further north you go). In fact, I'm not much of a fan of daylight. I'm all for it to the extent the crops can grow and all that, but, frankly, there is precious little I enjoy doing that cannot be in the absence of daylight.

Bah! Humbug!

    You know, this is one of those things I do not have a strong opinion on. I just do it, because, otherwise I'd be too early or late for work. It will screw up my meds schedule, though...

    Well, I have officially lost an hour of precious and all-too-rare sleep. I cannot say my views on the matter are, um, exactly sanguine right now.

    My wife, however, is thrilled to bits.

    of course..at this point in the morning. .I have lost TWO hours of sleep because my rocket scientist husband set the alarm too early. I could kill him.

    Erica,

    As Poppy will attest, TFBIM is not a very cyberish person. She logs in, checks her email, replies, rummages for something she needs/wants and logs off. She thinks its sheer madness to have online friends preferring "friends from real life" to which I reply that, going by her friends, real life has very little to recommend it.

    I mean, c'mon...it's noon already.

    Meh. Curmudgeon. I love DST. Sunlight until 9:30. Walks AFTER dinner. Hours outside, puttering.

    Goodness, Joke, take a nap already!

    The time change hasn't made me crabby in the least.

    wmwzbhmt - the sound I should be making getting my well-deserved hour of sleep.

    I assure that, since April 2006, I have indeed, napped.
