    Embarrasing Episode...

    A few years ago I made a big mistake when I changed the time on my alarm clock in the spring. I was off on the weekend and decided to change the time on Sunday instead of Saturday night. I am sometimes a distracted girl, and I did it backwards. So, on Monday morning, I got up...

    Daylight Savings Time really throws me off.  It seems silly that adjusting the clock one hour forward should cause such a tremor in my daily living, yet each time it happens, I get insomnia and feel a touch disoriented.     I don't see the value in it...

    When I lived in California,

    winters were stupid. The weather didn't really change, but our days would get shorter. And then Daylight Savings would come around, and our already shorter day would lose an hour for no reason other than we've been told it has to happen. Traffic is bad enough when the sun isn't...

    It's The Worst!!!

    I think daylight savings time is just dumb. In the spring, we lose an hour so we're always late cause we're not used to everything seeming an hour earlier. In the fall, we get an extra hour so by the time we realize we're ready to go we look to see we still have an hour left to...

    Dumb Deer

    I can't see the use for D.S.T. anymore, because things were much different when the concept was implemented. Leave things alone, we have a lot of other **** to worry about.

    I Can'T Get Used To It At All!

    I've been up since 4:15, not a coincidence that it is exactly one hour earlier than what I usually get up at... I love the joke that said "Only a politician would take a piece of rope, cut a foot off one end, tie it to the other end and think he's got a longer rope!" In reference...
