Daylight Saving Crap

I just have to say this to get it out of my system and then I'll shut up about it:

I fucking hate the whole daylight savings thing!!

I just wish they'd leave it one way or the other, because the "Big Switcheroo" always messes with me. It's like having fucking jet lag without having gotten to go anywhere.

Bah! Humbug!

OK. I feel better now.

Hello. I'm C-dell I agree whole heartedly. The whole changing time thing is very annoying. It was started to give farmers an extra hour of daylight. The way I see it America is no longer a rural nation. abolish it.

Awwwww... c'mon now, it gives a certain definition to the seasonal change - forces those of us with limited seasonal cues to recognize that - hey! it may be 80 degrees and sunny (again), but it's fall now!
Really, I agree - it's antiquated, unnecessary, and downright confusing (at least than night and the next morning). But whatever...

I don't necessarily have a problem with the extra hour of daylight - in fact, I rather enjoy that - it's just the change-over that bugs me. It messes up my routine (and when you have kids that used to wake up at 7AM and now wake up at 6AM, that's a routine you don't want to mess with).

l - Oh, stop complaining about the perfect weather! Good grief! Seriously, I can remember from my single, solitary year in SoCal that SOMETHING was desperately needed to mark the change in "seasons". I remember seeing those lighted icicle thingys on people's rooflines - right behind the palm tree in their front yard - and going, huh??

Actually what I like best is being able to say,"Boys, I need a lemon for this recipe. Go out back and pick a couple, will ya'?"
