Fall Back!

I hope you won't think worse of me when I tell you that today is my favorite day of the year, the day in which we Americanos all get together and fall the hell back. Yes, I am a lazy soul, and I dig the extra hour of sleep. Not just regular old sleep, either, but free sleep, sleep without guilt, without waking in fits and starts, like you do when you're working the SNOOZE button, thinking, "oh, my god, I need to get up, I've got so much shit to do..."

Often, I'll use Fall Back to trick myself, so that I can suck just as much enjoyment out of the time change as I possibly can. I avoid resetting my clocks until late in the evening; as I walk through the house on my daily routine and glance up to check the time, I get to think, "ah! But it's not really that late!" over and over again.

Lame, perhaps. But with so many other avenues now (voluntarily) denied to me, I take my pleasure where I can find it...

I play the same trick. Hell, sometimes I don't set the clocks to the right time for a few days.

We forgot to set the clocks this time around. I was up and showered before I realized it. It made my day seem so much longer...good stuff.
