I get up at 6 AM, now my body is going to think I am getting up at 5 AM for about the next week. It was really unpleasant last year, first time I was on this new schedule. Since there is no reason for this time change that I can fathom, I tend to resent it.

Also, it may be light later, but it WAS light on my way to work and now it will be dark for another month.

yeah that would be fine with me!

yeah there should be dst all the time imo, something abt energy usage or kids walking to school in the dark or some shit is why we have the split iirc

Urgh. I thought I'd split the difference by going to bed half an hour earlier than usual (or half an hour later by summer time), got my 8 hours, don't remember any trouble sleeping... so why do I feel like a zombie with a fuck-off headache today? Would not have booked a driving lesson for 10:30am if I'd remembered at time of booking that clocks would change last night.

(PS I love having nice long, light evenings so summer time is fine by me really but the change is a jolt)

(sorry for stealing a USian daylight savings time thread for my Britisher Summer Time chatter)

Forgot about this and woke up this morning thinking "it's 9:30" then realising "bugger, it's 10:30". Rest of the day seems to have fallen apart into the standard timewasting YouTube watching and videogames playing.

did you notice "you spin me round" was playing in the background? (snoball), Sunday, 27 March 2011 16:29 (six years ago) Permalink

JUST WHEN I HAD REACHED A POINT ON MY MORNING COMMUTE WHERE THE SUN WASN'T IN MY FACE ANYMORE, SOMEONE HIT THE RESET BUTTON AND I HAVE TO START THE LEVEL ALL OVER AGAIN.

(The fact that those two cities are in the same time zone doesn't really have anything to do with DST. BUT FUCK AN EIGHT A.M. SUNRISE!)

i swear we've been through (i think) 3 changovers now i and i swear to fucking god it's always been at a time where we've had a couple of weeks that are just going AWESOME in terms of lil' anabelle taking great 2 hour naps and being on this totally set schedule and sleeping great etc etc

then OH HAY LET'S ARBITRARILY MOVE THE CLOCK AROUND 1 HOUR TO FUCK EVERYTHING UP FOR NO REASON

I don't know why the hour change forward fucks me up so much but god, every year it's like I am death on two legs for a week.
And I don't even get fucked up by jetlag that much flying between Aus and US, so I don't know why DST is such a thing for me.

I tell you all a little secret that I unfortunately learned this year.

Get really sick on Saturday night, run a high fever all day Sunday, be forced to call into work on Monday, and voila DST doldrums are cured.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need more saltines and Sprite.

half of our clocks set themselves somehow and the others don't. I looked hard at one clock that was set to 11 am Eastern Time and pretty much passed out again.

It's one hour, stop complaining people! I honestly never heard anyone really bitch about this more than in a passing comment until reading ILX yesterday. I completely fail to see how extra post work daylight doesn't totally negate losing one hour of sleep. It was light until almost seven - so awesome!

man it was 75 degrees and sunny out when i left work at 6. i ain't hating on that.

the gets dark earlier shit though can still get fucked.

New research shows that springing ahead for daylight saving time may do more to our bodies than a triple shot of espresso can fix.

When we set our clocks forward for daylight savings, some researchers say the disruption in circadian rhythms and minor sleep deprivation is enough to trigger some people to have a heart attack.

my sleep schedule is always fucked up anyway, so it doesn't really matter to me. i am v. much against the principle of losing hours of sleep, tho

Guys spring equinox is in 9 friggin' days, you'll get your morning daylight back soon enough. What's important is that a) it's nice enough for me to start biking to work again, in March, in Cleveland; and b) I won't be biking home in pitch darkness.

Colbert suggested last night that it's all a plot by Obama to steal time from him and redistribute it among poor people.

did this change last night in the uk? i can't tell if all my devices do it automatically or not.

my heart is warmed by the prospect of longer evenings though.

Daylight savings really confused the heck out of me this time. I was on a road trip with my family from Texas to LA with stops along the way in Arizona and Las Vegas. We were trying to hit these locations at particular times, but with DST, time zone changes, and the fact that Arizona does not observe DST, we kept getting extremely confused about what time it was at any given point and what time it would be at our destinations. I'm looking forward to staying in one time zone now that I'm on my way home.

Just flew back & Europe & I gotta admit it's nice to have one fewer hour to adjust to.

still think switching for dst is dumb though

1st half of March seems a bit too early to be starting this thing.

No kidding.

Just now got it to where we all get up with daylight outside. Won't happen for another month or so after the time change.

Also, this is going just going to put the sun lower in the sky on my commute, meaning I'll more time to be blinded by it as I travel east.

ONE OR THE OTHER, I DON'T CARE. JUST NOT BOTH, AND CERTAINLY NOT NINE MONTHS OF ONE AND THREE MONTHS OF THE OTHER.

I'm just so glad I don't live in Indiana. They're on Daylight with the rest of us now and yet, from what I've read, everything's still fucked up over there.

you people who would take an hour of sleep over an hour of sun are anathema to me
