Daylight Savings Time starts tonight

Set your clocks ahead

Spring ahead tonight before you go to bed, so you will be on time for church tomorrow morning.

  1. Ugh, I hate DST. I especially hate the fact that it’s set up so we lose an hour of Sunday. If we’re gonna lose an hour, it should be an hour of Monday. Make it so we set our clocks forward at 9:00 am on Monday.

    • ITA. This has always mystified me. If you’re going to inconvenience everyone on the planet, shouldn’t there be a serious payoff? Like a free ticket to Obama’s trial or something? No one has EVER been able to explain the payoff.

        • Well, right now I feel robbed, because I’m getting ready to travel back east and lose 2 MORE hours. I’m already used to sleeping until noon. So let’s see, if I really push hard, I may be able to get into the office by 5pm. This really DOES suck.

            I had a Senior Moment when I did our clocks. I did two of them correctly, probably cuz they have dials with hands I can just spin around one time with my finger … DST for Dummies clocks. But then I went to do the hard one … the digital in my bedroom. And I forgot it was Spring. So I’m holding my fingers on the two buttons that have to be pushed Just So and I’m thinking, “fall back an hour.” My bedroom is now in Pacific Daylight Time zone.

            I need another cuppa before I attempt to fix it. ::sigh::

            • Ok, now I’m sitting here on an AFB in southern VA at roughly 7:30am trying to get something prepared for a meeting later, and according to my body clock it’s really 4:30am. Thanks, DST! Not enough Starbucks in the world…

                Good luck! We’re having nice weather today so that’ll mess you even more! I’m stuck inside a room with no windows, but just knowing that it’s nice outside makes me not want to do any work plus my internal clock is still messed up due to DST. I’ll be fighting the urge to take a nap all day long! And you’re right about the Starbucks. The dark roast did nothing for me this morning.

                  There are advantages to being homebound/disabled. My internal clock is the only one that matters to me. πŸ™‚

                • Sorry, Freedom, I didn’t get away from work enough yesterday to see your comment. You’re right about the weather making it tough Monday night and Tues! It was really nice. But after work, we got to enjoy it a little. Sorry you’re stuck inside, too!

                  We made it to Harpoon Larry’s on Monday night in NN. Seafood was insanely good, and the 25 local brews on tap didn’t hurt! Hey, we’re still talking about trying to meet up with Ting later in the week up by Richmond. Unfortunately we can’t make it all the way up to DC to see Zoph. That’s an all-day trip and we don’t have the time this trip, but I’m going to try to talk Zoph into driving down to meet us. Are you interested? Maybe Saturday lunch? We have some room in the car if you want, even for all 3 or you. Think about it!

                  I still haven’t been to Harpoon Larry’s. I shop over in that area near their new location but have never stopped in there, which is sad since I love, love, love local seafood!! What’s your favorite dish that they serve?

                  I’ll have to think about the Richmond trip. It depends on Hubby’s schedule. He had to work last weekend, this weekend is not looking so good; it’ll depend on how things turn out today. It’s been a rough couple of weeks. What side of Richmond? N, S, E or W? It doesn’t take too long to get to the west side from my neck of the woods, just hop on I-64 and boom, you’re there.

                • Their specialty is oysters, and they have a menu of nothing but oysters from different places up and down the coast, but they also have everything else. I go for the fried stuff, which they do perfect. The other night we had fried oysters, fried scallops, fried shrimp and fried flounder and it was perfect. The breading is perfect, it’s fried at really high temp and somehow isn’t the slightest big greasy, and it’s always done just right. Most important is that the quality of the seafood itself is the very best. Just heavenly.

                  I don’t know which side of Richmond Ting is on, but I bet we could probably meet on the East side so it’s not too far for us. I think it’s about an hour to an hour and a half for us. Maybe less for you. Let us know!

                  Zoph? Any thoughts?

                  Yeah, the east side is much closer. It really doesn’t take long to get there, but Hubby does drive like a bat outta hell… I’ll find out what he says about Saturday. I’m hoping today is a good day for him, yesterday was just plain awful. 😦

                  I’m not a big fan of oysters or even fried seafood–I love broiled seafood–but fried scallops and fried flounder are just divine! Yummy!

                • I agree about the broiled, and that’s how I prefer it, too. I just get the fried at Larry’s because they’re the only ones I know that do it right. πŸ˜‰ Sorry to hear about your hub’s rough time at work! If he’s tied up and wants to relax, we’d be happy to give you and DD a lift up there.

  2. BoB’s How is This Still a Thing is the best Daylight Savings Time take I’ve seen.

    Julie Borowski’s was humorously dramatic:
