A blog that I subscribe to was going on (and on) about how awful Daylight Saving Time is, how it causes a sort of hangover that lasts all week, how it should—as, apparently, California is contemplating—be done away with.
I heartily disagree. I am much happier to arise in the darkness—and then get to watch the sun rise—than have long dark evenings.
This evening, sunset was at 6:13, with darkness falling about half an hour later. Tomorrow: 7:13! Darkness at almost 8! And it's only going to get better.
Even though I don't strictly speaking have a job (and almost
never have had), I do tend to keep regular-job hours. Or try to. Well, okay, lately I've been knocking off around 4 and going for a nice long afternoon walk. But starting tomorrow, I can do the same thing by knocking off around 5—which gives me a full hour more of potentially productive time!
This fills me with joy.
I honestly don't understand what people have against Daylight Saving Time. I think they're a bunch of sourpusses.
That said, I would not be at all averse to adopting Daylight Saving Time permanently and getting rid of Standard Time. That would be just fine with me.
