Stupid Time

Dudes, I do not like Daylight Savings Time. At all. I didn't grow up with you, you see. So I have only been dealing with it for 10 years, and it's been 10 years of suck. I don't understand the purpose of being really tired on a random day in spring and then having to adjust schedules etc. I know my friends that have babies pretty much want to stab all living things on said day as they have to readjust the sleep schedule of a teeny little person who does not really respond well to adjustments or you know, words spoken out loud.

So what's the point? I get that it had a purpose back in the 40's when it was put in place. But, nowadays? Not so much. It just seems like a weird hold over. I mean we all gave up other holdovers from the era, like Victory Gardens and bigotry (certain states excluded, so why can't we give up this? Come on, get behind me on this America! I know some of you like the extra hour of sunlight but really, is it worth it when it makes me, anonymous blogger so cranky? I don't think so.

Ha! I wrote a blog today about the exact same stupid time.

Stupid Daylight Savings time.

But think of the unrivaled joy when you get the extra hour of sleep in the fall... If we could only set our clocks back and never forward, life would be grand. Of course, it would eventually be sunny at midnight, but we'll deal with that later. When I'm not so tired.
