Okay, I’m just going to come out and say what I’m sure everyone else is thinking. This daylight savings time thing is a bad idea. Sure, you can draw a line down the middle of a page and list all of the pros associated with setting your clocks ahead one hour on one side, and all of the cons on the other, and the cons will always outweigh the pros for one simple reason. CON: I LIKE TO SLEEP! One hour either way may not seem like a big deal to some, but if your routine necessitates your waking up at 6:00 a..m. every morning, that extra sixty minutes could be the difference between getting into work refreshed and revitalized following a morning work-out or accidentally steering your car into a roadside breakfast burrito stand manned by a guy dressed as a homeless Pancho Villa. And I know, there are those who’ll say: “Why don’t you just go to bed an hour earlier?” Go to bed an hour earlier?! Don’t make me smack you! I’m not one of those people who can just shut their eyes and fall asleep. I toss and turn, my mind preoccupied by a thousand thoughts: my latest script, my taxes, travel plans, the fact that I had better fall asleep as soon as possible because I’ll be getting up an hour earlier tomorrow.
Yep, I’m going to miss that extra hour of sleep – especially after a day like today, spent cleaning the house and running errands, starting at 7:30 a.m. and finishing up a little after 2:30 p.m. Well, I would’ve finished up if I only hadn’t run out of Tide.
Would love to hang around and talk about The Last Man but, alas, Fondy’s flight is scheduled to arrive in less than an hour and she can be a stickler about little things like punctuality and getting a lift home from the airport.
But, before I go, I leave you with some pics: Yet another book shipment, goodies from the art department.
