Oooo, we had the "loss of priviledges" discussion last night, too. Of course, it didn't help the kids' body clocks that Mom couldn't get dinner together until 8:00 because the sun was still up so it wasn't time to fix dinner yet.
And it sure didn't help that not only was the sun not up when the alarm clock buzzed this morning but that it's very cloudy and gloomy.
AND I'm still grouchy from missing an hour of sleep and because my allegedly-set-to-central-time 30-pound hanging on the wall behind my desk Atomic Clock still has the wrong ti - WAIT! It's got the right time now! The Clock God woke up!
There's hope after all.

Boy, Mister-Black-Faced-Watch, you sure are grumpy about this daylight savings thing. No way am I going to stick my head up and say how much I love it. No way.

You're protesting by ... wearing a different watch?
Way to stick it to the man, dude.

I haven't commented much of late, but wanted to let you know that I'm reading, and enjying it very much.

It's more of a mourning than a protest thing. After I overthrow the tax code, root and branch, we'll discuss it.
Alas, moving to Arizona is not an option at the moment.

1. Daylight Savings is Ben Franklin's fault. He invented it along with bifocal glasses, energy-efficient closed stoves, free public libraries, volunteer fire departments, and witty aphorisms. He wanted to save people money on candles and such. He didn't anticipate electric light or insomniac computer geeks.
2. BUY #1 SON A WATCH. Hell, lend him two or three of yours. Let him get all interested in watches and hey presto! He will know what time it is.

2- He knows what time it is. The problem is his failure (or, if you will, his lack of desire) to do anything about it.

OK, then allow me to edit my second recommendation:
2. BUY HIM A WATCH that says "It's time for a spanking!"

That sounds like something found at the KidGap in the Castro district.
