    I LOVE daylight savings time. It's nice to actually still have daylight to enjoy when I get home from work in the evening.

    I am so excited for next week. It's going to be warm here and I'll be able to go out and enjoy several evening runs after work. No more running in the dark!

    I LOVE not being in the dark when leaving the office! George W. Bush extended the length of Daylight Savings Time, and although I can't stand the guy in every other way, I am SO grateful that he did this.

    Here in Arizona we don't change our clocks, but since others do, it usually creates some confusion.

    And why would that be so funny especially on a Saturday evening? I go to bed that late the majority of the week.

    Anyway, I'm one to dislike it as well. The sun doesn't skip an hour ahead so why change the clocks? It really just moves sunrise and sunset an hour ahead, thus it doesn't exactly save anything.

    And on a side note, Europe doesn't change time yet

    Yes, they always seem to shift in the middle of Worlds, making figuring out the schedule a bit more challenging! This year they are shifting before Worlds, how polite of them!

    I hear you! I hate "falling back" and having to drive home from work at %:00 PM and not have any daylight hours to do stuff outside. I'm like you, looking forward to next week, except I cycle, but I refuse to do that in the dark! Too dangerous!

    I saw this and wondered if we set our clocks later tonight and tomorrow night?

    "For most people, the missing hour Sunday means a sleepy Monday. But for some -- particularly those who aren't big on mornings to begin with -- it takes a heavy toll on mood and productivity, earning blame for car accidents, workplace injuries and stock market dips..."

    I like Daylight Savings Time. I like the extra hour in the evening. I'm a nocturnal animal too but it doesn't seem to upset me at all. Especially since it happens on a Saturday night, so I just get the same number of hours I normally would. OTOH, the fall back just depresses me.

    Thanks for the reminder! Worst day of the year though

    Here's an article with tips on how to make the transition: http://www.cbc.ca/news/health/story/...me-spring.html

    (Of course, some of the tips are a wee bit too late to follow.)

    For those of us who are night shift workers, spring DST is a nice thing....(work 11 hours, get paid for 12...) It's fall that sucks.
