I guess “The Rocky Horror Glee Show” came at just about the right time. I keep on singing, “Let’s do the time warp again,” but I’m not dancing. We can’t avoid the time change, at least around here in the good ole Central Time Zone. I’ve always heard people lament over Daylight Saving Time (DST), but now I’m realizing that that is the time I really like. I despise Standard Time (ST).
I’ve read over and over the reason for starting Daylight Saving Time. It had something to do with Benjamin Franklin and saving oil for lamps. I guess I just don’t understand why it’s only important to do that March – November, and furthermore, what is so great about Standard Time?
This Standard Time is really messing with my life in so many ways.
- I think my body operates on the sundial system. During DST I am up at 4:00AM; during ST I am up at 3:00AM. That makes for a really long day. This is compounded by the fact that I go to bed at 8:00PM or 9:00PM during the summer and 7:00PM or 8:00PM during the winter. No kidding, I went to bed last night at 6:30PM.
