Wanna know what annoys me today?

Daylight Savings Time. Sure in a month, when I'm all happy because it's light out til past 8 pm, I'll be okay with it. But today, and yesterday, when I had to drag my butt out of bed when the clocks normally would have read 5:30 am.... not so much. Who thought an hour could make so much difference??? And yes, I'm an adult, and am aware that I've been part of this clock changing thing for all my life, and I should be used to it, but I'm not. I do love the "fall back" part for the extra hour of sleep -- which is irrational, since you can't have one without the other. Well, I suppose you *could* but eventually we'd be falling back so far...well, it'd be mid afternoon!

There has got to be a better way. I mean, why aren't scientists spending their resources trying to figure out how to make daylight last longer without robbing me of my precious sleep??? Is that so much to ask?

Yeah, yeah, I know -- I'll get over it. I don't want to get over it, I would rather go back to bed. ;-)

I don't expect, quite frankly, that anyone will read this, simply because I don't think I've mentioned it to a soul, nor do I plan to. And generally word of mouth are how these things get started.

However, it's my little corner of the world to rant and rave, to praise and condemn, and to generally mess about online. Because online stuff is fun. We've all got a little bit of a voyeuristic gene, and we love reading about other people's train wrecks of lives and we love talking about ourselves. So should anyone find this -- hey, it's on the web, it's meant to be read -- I will note one thing: Despite my general ranting about the world, I am, by all accounts, a pretty happy person. And that's how I keep happy -- by venting, by sharing and getting rid of the negative stuff I encounter during the days. I suspect that if more people could vent without fear -- online, in a private journal, to their friends -- we'd all be a little less stressed and able to laugh at the things that can piss us off most.
