Okay, so it IS daylight savings time and my computer isn't just mental. I didn't remember, and i woke up this morning and my computer wanted to change my time...I was like, "huh?" but now it's gonna be lighter outside at night! Yay!

The first song I listened to this morning was "Hallelujah Here She Comes," but that was more for self-medication purposes than anything else.

I think the day after should be made a holiday where no work and just play needs done. Losing an hour messes with the equilibrium...

Summer coing is the greatest as always. Nothing beats the summer sun.

It doesn't make sense because it gets darker in the morning when you switch the time now. And the opposite in the fall. Maybe he came up with it in the fall though...

I love the light but it doesn't feel necessary here because it's light almost all day long here during the summermonths. Doesn't really mater if it gets dark at 10.30pm or 11.30 pm, most days you are asleep at those hours, or about to go to sleep, anyway and it will be light when you wake up.
During the winter though, I would prefer light in the afternoon when you don't have to be at work. so to change it in the fall sucks....

Homer: 8:58, first time I've ever been early for work. Except for all those daylight savings days. Lousy farmers.

Do you still go to the beach wearing all-black long clothes in the summer time?

I had heard that daylight savings was created by Benjamin Framklin in the 1800s in order to save money on candlewax!
