Are you going to keep whining like this until DST is over? I just want to be prepared.

Nah. Maybe another week or so, until:
1- I get used to it, and
2- I go back to the office full time.
In the meantime, verily it doth give much suck.

ADD SNOW and maybe I'll feel sorry for you.

I am an unabashed DST lover.

With DST you can still see sun in the early evening. There's daylight here at 6:45 so it's win/win time.

When I lived in Ecuador, the best thing was that EVERY DAY the sun rose at 6:45am and set at 6:45pm.
Ah, equatorial life. The oppressive humidity and never ending heat (even by SoFla standards) I could have lived without, though.

It's snowing here. It's been snowing here all day. That's something to whine about. The dark? Not so much.

I'm not whining, I'm railing.

But, I am femaile. Adjusting easily comes with assorted girly parts. It's adjust or live in a constantly pissed-off state, vs. just 10 days of the month.
Not that I didn't rail, a little ...

oh that wasn't whining? it did sound a bit like whining.

A good rule o'thumb is that whining usually features the word "why," as in "why me?" or "why is this turning green?"
The blog/combox is a lousy way to convey wrath, alas. Just pity the unfortunates when I become Maximum Leader and abolish DST (even before I abolish the income tax and the beekeper subsidy and the National Helium Reserve, which shows a lot.)
Basically I'm more "Grr!" than I am "Boohoo" over DST.
Just wait for the gloatwave that will overcome me in OCtober, though.

Um, vickee, adjusting to DST is not inherently female, since the last time I checked, I was still fighting off sleep at work and last time I checked, yep, I still have two x chromosones.
SL, battling the desire to crawl back onto the couch...
the only reason I'm up, now, is my bladder. It's the only reliable alarm clock I've found. And now it's T minus 15 minutes until I do my taxes...
The vw: rrpoos.
