So you probably already know it, but here in America, we switched over to daylight savings time last night. As much as I hate to think anyone relies on this site for any sort of news, I figured I should throw that out there.
There have been times that I totally forgot about the time change, and the only thing that saved my butt was seeing it pointed out on some random website, so I try to pay it forward. Do the kids still call it that? Paying it forward?
Anyway, stupid daylight savings time. I've finally figured it out, though.
It's because when you're old and useless, you like to go to bed early and wake up early. And the people who make our laws are old and worthless, so they think it's a fantastic idea to make the rest of us miserable by making laws about time.
I'm a little grouchy about it, and I'm also out of coffee this morning, which doesn't help at all.
I guess what I'm really trying to say is that I can't wait until the politicians die. If that sounds harsh, don't worry--I'm sure they'll die peacefully in their sleep. Because by then, daylight savings time will probably be year round, and we'll all have to go to bed just as soon as we get off work.
