*8* clocks/watches/electronic bits to reset this morning. aarrrgghhhh! I didn't realize I had quite so many time-keeping thingies stuffed into my apartment....

I really don't understand people's (eg Jess's) problem with getting up early. I am currently awake at 3.05am, which would suck if uni didn't start at 2.15pm tomorrow! Plus it's just a screening of Run Lola Run! :)

you get up early = you are old man = you are satan.*

(*this may be a slight exaggeration.)

jess (dubplatestyle), Sunday, 27 October 2002 16:18 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

The only thing I don't like is that it gets dark so early! It seems to cast a pall over everything, making things kind of gloomy. I really can't complain about an extra hour of sleep, though.

(for my time, I just put in -1 and it's fine now!)

I quite like the early darkness.

One of my colleagues says he gets up at 4am every day. He is a sikh, and apparently he praised for a a few hours every morning. I try to resist pointing and giggling, in a largely unsuccessful attempt to pretend respect for a person's religion.

you do not get up early = you are the great satan.

so, earth is populated only by satans, some ordinary, some great. actually, you may be right

The inevitable downside -- and since I really can't stand short days and long winter nights, megaSIGH over it. It's one big reason I'm where I am, honestly.

I'm just glad to be one of the great satans. That's much better.

Martin Skidmore (Martin Skidmore), Sunday, 27 October 2002 17:19 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

sleep until 10:30 AM today! because it was really 9:30! i'd rather be a well-rested satan than anything at all sleep-deprived.

Maria (Maria), Sunday, 27 October 2002 17:27 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

we went ON daylight savings at the start of october which was interesting for me 'cause it actually meant i got to get up later, sort of. my son wakes at 5-6am, so im used to that but with daylight savings it was 7am woohoo i even felt like we had slept in! haha.

donna (donna), Sunday, 27 October 2002 19:31 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

I'd always thought that being the great satan would be less rubbish than this.

Rebecca (reb), Sunday, 27 October 2002 19:34 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

It usually takes me a couple of weeks not to think about the lost hour turning the clock back. It's 2:40 pm according to the clock on the computer, but its 3:40 pm in my mind.

luckily i had left the microwave clock set at the old time for the past six months. now it is correct again yipee skip

We lost an hour here. Its okay except it happens the day after my birthday- hence i feel rushed, nay pushed (and hungover) into the new 'age' .short changed.

Farmers get enough from government subsidizing and they need to mess with our time too.

A Nairn (moretap), Monday, 28 October 2002 03:16 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

Daylight savings really sucked last night, because I stayed up till midnight so I could call my friend in Indiana, but instead of being 7am like it usually is there when I call, it was only 6am. My friend said that she though it was Satan calling.

And for us, it used to not be so much of a problem back when we fell back in mid-October. But for the last week, I've been waking up the kids while the streetlights outside are still turned on.

Between that, 80º weather and World Series that don't finish until November, I've been feeling pretty discombobulated already. Lord knows how I'll feel tomorrow.

pplains, Sunday, 5 November 2017 03:17 (four months ago) Permalink

But also keep in mind that tonight will be magical for one reason.

The Central Time Zone will fall back at 2 a.m. In other words, the clock will go from 0159 to 0100.

Since the Mountain Time Zone won't fall back until 2 a.m., it will also be 0100 in those areas. So the contiguous states will really only have three time zones for 59 minutes.

Which also means that the time in portions of Oregon (a state on the West Coast) and portions of Florida (a state on the East Coast) will be the same.

pplains, Sunday, 5 November 2017 03:26 (four months ago) Permalink

Seeing how DST is now seven months of the year, I think it should be called Standard Time. We could rename current Standard Time to something like Darkness Redistribution Time.

I stayed up just to celebrate

Magically seeing 1:59 turn to 3:00 was kind of amazing

Like i felt i was really in the 21st c or on drugs, can’t really tell, but with much subtler side effects that my mind grew paranoid of the longer i dwelled on the fast forwarding of time

Here's what I don't like:

• Switching in March while it's still winter.

pplains, Tuesday, 13 March 2018 14:41 (five days ago) Permalink

seriously having to get up while it's still dark is the most depressing thing and totally ruins my mood for the entire day and an extra hour of light in the evening is not nearly enough to compensate for the torture I have to endure each morning trying to wake up early enough to get my kids ready for school/daycare on time.

I mean, it'll be ok in a month or so but still

silverfish, Tuesday, 13 March 2018 15:37 (five days ago) Permalink

Yesterday morning I was standing on the platform waiting for my morning train and noticing several unfamiliar faces and thought, these poor bastards forgot to change their clocks. And then I looked at my phone (AKA my alarm clock) which had failed to automatically change the time like it was supposed to have done. Who's the poor bastard now, I was forced to ask myself. Who's the poor bastard now.
