… does anybody really care?

I sure do!

I’m a time freak. Dan knows it. My students know it. I’m into precise times. When I was in a poetry critique group I would sit in my car until the exact starting time was nearly there, so I could ring the doorbell at that time. Yes. I’m that goofy.

I am not happy about the transition from today to tomorrow. I will lose an hour. The time will be wrong. I have to reset all my clocks. And I have to wake up earlier.

Or do I? Maybe I’ll just wake up at the same time I have been waking up (I usually only use an alarm clock on the day I teach at UCSC). Maybe I’ll just handle it that way except for the UCSC day. Hmmm.

Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead an hour before your head hits the pillow tonight! Especially you musician folks … don’t want to be late for a job!


  1. Of the things I hate, Daylight Saving time is near, if not at, the top of the list.

    And it’s not really that big of a list – traffic, rudeness, Daylight Saving, cars with the sound system cranked too high…

  2. I would have to put “lack of chocolate” on the very top of my list, Tim. But that’s just me. 😉

    And yes, DStime would run a very close second. And since I currently DO have chocolate, you know where that puts it.


  3. Hmm, cars with the sound system cranked too high also qualify under “traffic” (well, maybe, anyway) and “rudeness”.
