Grrr Dayights Savings Time!!!


Okay, it’s that time of year again.  And like always, I can’t help but to complain.  Of all the stupid and totally useless things our government has come up with, Daylights Savings Time has to be the worst.  I mean how screwy was the logic that brought us this notion that changing everyone’s natural Circadian rhythm would help people and businesses by having more daylight in the evening?  Personally I think it has about as much purpose in my life as an ant in my kitchen.  If I used the government’s logical approach, we should all have ants in our kitchen, they would take care of the crumbs that get dropped on the floor and save us valuable sweeping time...
If not for the fact that the local truancy officer would be knocking on my door to retrieve my little cupcakes for being one hour late every morning for the rest of the school year, I seriously think I would go the way of Arizona and totally ignore the existence of DST.  I think the whole concept should be abolished, especially in the northern latitudes where evening light can be a bit long in the summer—as if normal sundown at 12:30am in Nome, Alaska in June wasn’t bad enough, we just had to make sundown 1:30am...I’m sure the locals appreciate that.
So, this morning I raise my coffee cup (at 3:33 am because my sleep cycle is already screwed up from DST) to George Vernon Hudson for inventing DST *raises pitchfork* and all of you who will struggle with DST for the next 6 months.
