I really hate changing the clocks. What do we really gain out of it? Sure it is light out later in the evening, but now I go to work in the dark again. why is that better? I have to worry about changing the clocks before I go to bed, make sure I don't somehow screw up the alarm, and basically I just don't sleep well due to fear of over sleeping. Why can't we leave the clocks alone? Please!
Speaking of clocks, I realized our old clock radio is pretty useless now. The clock was a gift off of our wedding registry about 14 years ago, so it has lived a long life. See, it works fine, it still keeps time, but I found out last night I can't change the time. The little button I have to push to allow you to change then time doesn't work. So, instead, I set the alarm an hour earlier. That made the early morning hurt even more. We do have a new clock radio standing by, but I didn't want to mess with it last night. It is one of those new-fangled ones with an iPod dock, and more small buttons. I need to practice slapping it into snooze mode a few times before I'm ready to put into service full-time. I don't want to turn it off in my sleep on accident since I have to bring donuts to work if I am late. I know, it's a stupid unwritten rule. I mean, come on, you want me to be even later by stopping and getting donuts? Dumb!
So, yeah, I might be a little cranky today due to losing the hour sleep. Does it show? It was sad last night. We ate dinner kind of late, and I kept saying, "I need to go to bed soon, it's almost 8 o'clock," or whatever time it was plus an hour. I kind of felt like I lived on one of the coasts where prime time TV is an hour later than it is here. How do you people handle that? I couldn't imaging having prime time end at 11pm. That is way too late. Of course, in these TiVo times it doesn't matter too much. I could just record everything and watch it a day later at a more reasonable time. Or, watch it at work, if I had a Slingbox.
Okay, back to work. Did you miss the hour you lost last night?
