Have I Written This Post Before?

I write this post every single year. At least I think I do--I really can't remember.

This is the time of year when the Evil Rule Makers mess around with the rules governing our clocks.

"Mwahahaha!" I imagine them cackling as they sign the legislation. "Let's make a rule that for six months everyone is going to feel terrible! Their alarms are going to go off ridiculously early, and they will have to leave for work in the dark, even though days have gotten nice and long."

Then Daylight Evil Time goes into effect, and I spend at least a month feeling groggy and walking into walls. (I mean that literally--this morning I was trying to put on my shoes and tipped over into a wall. No bueno.)

That's probably why those of you subscribe to this blog through e-mail just got a notification that a new post was up, but the new post consisted of...nothing. After 781 blog posts, I forgot that you have to WRITE something before you hit PUBLISH.

I'm feeling a little dizzy, slightly headachy, and as if I could sleep for three days straight without feeling rested. I want to put my head down on my computer keyboard and drool, just like the pretty girl in today's illustrative photo but without the nice manicure. Ordinarily I would suspect I'd contracted a virus, but I know that in this case it's just the to-be-expected side effects of DET.

I need a sick-of-saving-daylight day.

  1. I have been USELESS since Daylight Savings Time began. Useless, I tell you! I have pushed back my work day by half an hour because I am truly incapable of waking at what my body knows full well is 3:45. I am glad I am not the only one who is so drastically affected. I wish I could remember when I usually start to recover, but alas my memory is impaired from lack of sleep.
