Do I even need to say how I speed-read the headline?

by Anonymousreply 311/03/2012

Thanks for the reminder. I never keep track anymore and wake up surprised on Sunday.

I know the earth needs to rest in the winter, but really wish it didn't get dark until at least 6:30 during late fall and winter.

Everything I have changes itself automatically -- except my car, which I just leave the same until the spring.

We did ours last week. A friend in Sydney did his the week before. It saddens me that we can't even agree on when summer time ends or starts.

How will this effect the elections?

We need the extra daylight to clean up after Sandra Dee

I've clearly been on DL too long today. I thought R7 wrote "How will this effect the erections?"

R4? You don't get out much, do you?

by Anonymousreply 1011/03/2012

Blech. I hate short days.

Thank you OP. I had no fucking clue that this was happening. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!

It'll get dark earlier and Republicans can't come out in direct sunlight.

I love this time of year.

We do agree. Summer starts in the northern hemisphere in 2013 on Friday, June 21st and ends with the autumnal equinox on Saturday, September 21st.

We move our clocks ahead in the SPRING, and back in the FALL. Summer has nothing to do with it.

Yay! Unlike other Sundays, I have no reason to set the alarm to wake up. Plus, I get an extra hour of sleep because of the time change.


I just hope I can fall asleep at a decent hour. Been averaging about 5 hours of sleep lately. I'm tired.

by Anonymousreply 1611/03/2012

If I could turn back time...hahahaha I know I am stupid!

by Anonymousreply 1711/03/2012

Wow I had no idea. So, we get an extra hour to sleep?

by Anonymousreply 1811/03/2012

Who still has clocks that don't set themselves?

by Anonymousreply 1911/03/2012

My alarm clock and my digital ones are all automatic. I still have to change the clock hanging on the wall and my oven/microwave.

by Anonymousreply 2011/03/2012

Oh, fuck, now we need to listen to the tired queens go on and on how falling "back", and gaining an hour makes their whole sleep system go out of whack.

No change here in Hawaii.

R21, this is the Autumnal counterpart to those same people whining about the birdies waking them up in the Springtime. There's a certain comfort in the pattern.

I had a local weather anchor friend who once advised a waiting city not to forget to 'turn your cocks back tonight!'

by Anonymousreply 2411/03/2012

Why are you telling us this? We are not friends. This is a gossip board.

by Anonymousreply 2511/03/2012

There, there, R25 -- you're just cranky -- you'll feel better after your extra hour of sleep tonight.

by Anonymousreply 2611/03/2012

I think it's tremendous !

by Anonymousreply 2711/03/2012

They should keep moving the clocks ahead one hour. Im 23 years then they'll be back where they started.

A combination of a pain killer last night plus Daylight Savings Time has had me wide wake since 1:30 a.m.

by Anonymousreply 2911/04/2012

And at last, r29, you provide an opening for my semi-annual rant.

It's Daylight SAVING Time, not "SAVINGS!"

And now it's over for awhile. See you in the spring.

by Anonymousreply 3011/04/2012

Easy way to remember correct term. SAVINGS go into banks. Time change is not related to financial institutions.

by Anonymousreply 3111/04/2012

I love you, Daylight Saving Time Troll. If you hadn't taken up the torch, I would've been tempted to do it myself.

Like nails on a chalkboard, I tell you! Like nails on a chalkboard!

Tonight? So soon.

by Anonymousreply 3301/06/2013

I already did.

by Anonymousreply 3401/06/2013

r33, you bumped this cause?

by Anonymousreply 3501/06/2013

Fun and folly!

he bumped it cause he's in New Zealand.

Bastard is hoping some idiot will actually do this and be an hour early for everything.

Six more weeks of winter for THAT bastard.

I turn my clock back tonight? Didn't realize that.
