Can someone please explain to me why we go through this ritual of moving clocks forwards and backwards every year?
Better yet, could someone please explain why we had to do this "Spring Forward" nonsense earlier than before? I know certain national leaders who come from provinces or states that earn a good deal of income from...say...oil...are pitching this as an energy-saving initiative. But how can this save energy when all we're doing is shifting our usage from one part of the day to another? Then again, I suppose having all this extra sunshine will encourage people to get out and enjoy the sunshine and weather more...and possibly take extra, or longer, day trips which in turn may increase our ...ummm...gas consumption.
Don't mind me...I, like many of my friends and colleagues, am just really tired and not adjusting to losing an hour of sleep very well. I've never seen such a large group of people so tired and grumpy. We are all pointing towards the time change.
One of the radio stations I listen to actually suggested people take a nap when they get home from work...yeah...probably a recommendation made by a guy who has no responsibilities and probably no life. I know when I get home from work I have a number of things to do and napping will just make me stay up later to finish what needs to be done.
It almost makes me want to move to Saskatchewan.
So, here we are, day three of the new chronometric regime and I'm too tired to forage for myself. McDonald's to the rescue...until it catches up with me.
