Why I hate Daylight Savings Time

I put a fancy-schmancy coffee cake in the oven this morning and settled down to surf the 'net and see what the news was. In passing I see a note about Daylight Savings Time. "What?" says Darwin. "It's not Daylight Savings Time yet, is it?"

"No, of course not," I laugh.

"Well, hon, the clock in the kitchen says 9:10, and the clock on the computer says 10:10."

I swear this happens every year. Good thing Mass isn't until 11:30...

Just think... you won't have to switch your clocks again for about 8 months.

If there were a citizens' revolt to abolish Daylight Savings Time I would join it.

As it is, I simply resign myself to going to a later Mass when the time changes in the spring.

Daylight Savings Time kills me. I also forgot all about it, mainly because I try to spend most of the year pretending it doesn't exist. A few weeks ago I'd hear people start to say things like, "It's almost time for Daylight Sav-" and I'd put my fingers in my ears and say "LALALALA I CAN'T HEAR YOU." So I was shocked and horrified that it started today.

...and coffee cakes, I'm so impressed!

When I was younger and prone to sleeping late, I loved Daylight Savings Time. Nothing like extended daylight hours. Now that I am older, working a regular job, and sometimes getting up earlier than normal to go jogging before said job, DST has become a royal pain. Man, I am getting old.

We arrived at mass this morning -- I thought -- 30 minutes early.

To find the parking lot totally full.

Aaargh.

It's rare, but sometimes, technology helps our lives.
