Aw, Crap.

What? I'm losing a whole hour tonight? Well, shit. It's that got-damned Daylight Savings Time again, that time of the year in which we make obeisance to an obsolete, antiquated, artificial, irritating, and quality-of-life-denting system designed to boost domestic production during a war that ended almost ninety years ago. Dammit.

I don't enjoy Spring Forward. I've also noticed that children, especially young ones, are no great respecters of the time change. My youngest one is going to get up at 6:30, whether the clock says it's 6:30 or 5:30 or 10:59. Likewise, he won't go to sleep unless it's dark outside, regardless of what "time" it is. It'll be a month before he adjusts - and my daughter is almost as bad. Mommy's day? Effectively lengthened, since they get up earlier and stay up later. Don't get me wrong - I love my spawn to pieces - I just don't appreciate the reduction in sleep and quiet, adult "evening time".

Bitch, bitch, bitch.

May I go back to bed now?

*groggily squinting at screen* can I get an "Amen"?

They went and changed time in the middle of a freaking faire on me. I'd be outraged, but that would require more consciousness.

Or, as a local band put it during the early morning performance on Sunday, "Nothing cures a hangover like losing an hour of sleep."

I rebelled. Showed up for work at 10am. Felt damn early. ;)
