My 25 Cent Rant About DST

It's official. I hate Daylight Savings Time.

Well, I guess I need to be specific. I hate the "Spring Forward" part of Daylight Savings Time - as it steals my sleep and messes with my biorhythms and all that jazz. The "Fall Back" thing is OK, though. I'm always up for an extra hour of shut-eye.

BTW, does anyone really follow the whole biorhythms thing anymore? I still remember "charting" my biorhythms back in high school (which would make this the late 70's/early 80's). So, with that kind of timing, biorhythms are from roughly the same era as mood rings & pet rocks.

I'm not sure Daylight Savings Time makes a huge difference for a lot of people - unless, for example, you've got a job in which Sunday is a work day. Which may explain my irritation. I can think of at least three times in which I've shown up early (or late) for church due to D.S.T. Thankfully, no worship services - just Sunday School [at the traditional churches I've served] or load-in [at the church plant I pastored].

So, I guess that's enough whining for one moring. Go read Dilbert (which is actually funny today).
