DST… I’m not a fan

I’m not a big fan of Daylight Savings Time as my lurkers already know.  It’s not getting any better.  Becky’s not a big fan of the deserts of Arizona, but its position as the lone state refusing to participate in this madness makes living there seem more attractive.

I was dragging when I got up this morning and I was dragging all the way through lunch.  It’s about 11:00 pm as I’m writing this and I’m not sleepy.  It will take me a couple of weeks to get on the new cycle.  For those of you that have to deal with me, bear with me please.  I will try not to be any more surly than absolutely necessary.

As I was trying to wake up this morning I ran across this article in the LA Times  which didn’t make me feel any better with its discussion of the dark side of DST including anxiety, heart attacks and  car accidents.  Sleep deprivation is a wonderful thing… NOT!  Can you imagine having Daylight Savings Time listed as the cause of death in your obituary?

Once again, in an attempt to make lemons into lemonade, I’ll remind you that this is a good time to check/replace the batteries in your smoke detectors.  Those of you that are sleep impaired like I am need all the help you can get as you acclimate to this unnecessary assault on your internal clocks…  Sweet Dreams!

As I sit in stuck traffic, the alternate route it suggested mocks me.
