Daylight Savings Time
« on: April 6, 2003, 09:05 AM »
So did anyone loose any sleep over daylight savings time?
Man, I hate it when I loose that 1 hr. I put my clock ahead around 9 pm last night & went to bed early for a change. I got aorund 5 hrs of sleep. Not enough in my book but I got out of bed. A restless sleep & my eyes can hardly stay open.

Sorry to hear that. Down here in Indiana we do not change for Day Light Savings. It is an Indiana thing. Some would say it is a blessing, others say it is stupid.

I hate Daylight Savings Time.  This morning I had to be in at work at 4am, so I went to sleep at 6 last night so that I wouldn't miss to much sleep.  The worst thing about the time change was that the people who worked nightcrew at my work lost one hour of work and we (I'm the person who picks up all of the trash that they get from stocking the shelfs) didn't got out later then we were schedule.  I got out at 945am instead of 8am.  
I hate this stuipid time change.

Yeah, Indiana does not change it's clocks. The only adjustment that we have to make is some of the TV shows are now a hour earlier.

I'd rather change my clocks than change time zones (which is effectively what we have to do).

Now I have to decide between watching Simpsons and watching Six Feet Under because they are on at the same time!  >:(

Actually Indiana has three time zones; Eastern, Easter Standard, and Central, but only one of them doesn't change over.

It didn't bother me a bit.  It's nice that it will be lighter out later in the evening, and darker in the mornings to maek it easier to sleep in longer.

Six Feet Under is my choice. Simpsons is on Three times a day and I can always catch a repeat. Or I could watch Six Feet Under on another day for the repeat.

So how'd everyone do this year with the time change?  I didn't even notice it really, since it happened during my 4/2 Midnight Madness hangover.  Though I am admittedly tired as hell at work today...  :-\

Anyone totally brainfart on it?  Has anyone ever forgotten it and shown up late for something the next day?

All I know is, after my brief nap this afternoon I was confused as hell by the amount of sunlight left at 8:09 PM.

It was kind of funny for me because my computers and my vcr's all change the time automatically, while my alarm clock, microwave and tv's don't.  I had no clue what time it was when I woke up Sunday morning!!!!  :o

Back when I was stationed in Alaska, I thought it was funny that we had daylightsavings time.  The sun wouldn't set, so why were we trying to save it? ;D

I'm usually on top of DST, but this year, since I had been up for 36 plus hours due to MM, I forgot. The ironic part is that I wanted to go to Wal-Mart at 7am when they opened, and in order to make it, I need to get up at 6:30. I remeber waking up on my own accord at 5:30 and thinking "I've got another hour. :P
