I like things dark. I wish they'd just do away with it, but keep it at the time when you have less light. That'd suit me.

This first day of Standard Time is always a bitch for me. I felt like it was almost bed time, but when I looked up it was 6:45.

next year it will be extended by 4 weeks (2 weeks earlier in the Spring, 2 weeks later in the Fall) to conserve more energy

If it weren't for my wonderful wife and kids, that'd be where I live, I swear it. Maybe someday I'll be a grumpy old man there or something.

Which is nonsense anyway, because people will still use energy regardless of what the clock says

I went in to work an hour early today because I had no clue daylight saving's time had ended...
