I WANT MY HOUR BACK!!!
The fabric of space-time is not something to be meddled with!
People keep telling me that I'll get it back in a few months. Well it's more than a few months! My hour is gone longer than it is here! Also, if I were to break into your house and steal your TV would you be any less pissed if I left a note saying that you'll get it back in November?
I refuse to change my clocks (except my cellphone because it thinks it's better than me and changes automatically), my room will be its own little pocket of space-time unaffected by the ludicrous notion that you can "save" daylight. I still don't know why you would want to save daylight in the first place but my relationship with the sun has never been that good. I want my daylight in the morning so I can sleep through it! I don't want it in the evening! I like the dark! Daylight until 10pm is not something I have ever wanted.
It also makes Halloween less awesome now that daylight stupid time has been extended to include my favorite holiday. It *should* be dark on Halloween! It's pretty lame when you go through a haunted house and it's still light outside.
I have always had trouble with the switchover, my internal clock takes about a month to get used to the shift. Mostly because I have to fight my internal clock as it constantly wants to shift and hour in the other direction. I really think my body wants to operate on a 26 or 28 hour day.
Gah! This year the switchover is even more annoying. It is affecting my work. We have an experiment that runs for 23 hours a day. That gives us an hour to analyze the data, reset it, and start it again. It needs to be started at the same time every day. Well because of the lost hour I don't have the time I need to do all of that. Meaning the data for today is going be shifted awkwardly. The data *needs* to be analyzed everyday because the buffer can't hold more than a day's worth of data. And the program needs to run for the full 23 hours or I can't collect the data for the previous day! *jumps up and down in frustration* Fixing the screw up after the fact is possible, it's just a hassle.
Last year's entry which links to the year before that and so on thus creating my own little time muckery in vague retaliation.
FYI: I live in Indiana and we only started this DST crap in 2006.
To save myself the trouble I will be referring to my feelings (a very strong fiery hatred) on daylight stupid time as Rant #1.
