How to Fix Daylight Savings Time

I hate having to try to adjust my sleeping habits.
I hate getting up when it’s dark.
I hate being sleepy all day because of it.
I hate having to reset the clocks.
I hate feeling every day like I’ve lost an hour somewhere and don’t know where to find it.

That said . . .

I’m a big fan of Daylight Savings Time in the fall, when I get extra sleep and always feel like I’ve got an extra hour in my pocket, ready to do whatever I want.

Which means . . .

We need to stop springing ahead. We need to fall back AND spring back. How do we do this? Simple. In the fall, we fall back an hour. In the spring, we spring back twenty three hours, essentially gifting us all with an extra day of weekend, which would more than compensate for the ensuing crazy sleep schedule. Of course, this means that one of the days of the year is going to have to go. I nominate May 31st, because May’s got way too many days, anyway. It’s a greedy month, when you get right down to it.

So faithful blog readers, now’s the chance–write to your congresspeople and tell them to stop the insanity! I’m sure if we bug them all enough, they can do something to fix this.

    Here, here! I’d _really_ be a fan of Obama if he’d do something like this! Forget bailing out the country. Give us 23 extra hour!
    BTW, I’ve been meaning to call you. It’s been a while! I’ll try to call tomorrow night.

    I’ve been meaning to call, too–just been too hectic here. But tonight should be fine. DKC’s going to a Relief Society thing.

    I completely agree! Let’s get this thing started:)

    Great! It’s good to have a Texan aboard–that should broaden the appeal immensely. 🙂
