An hour of catnaps lost...

I exiled myself from Vox for the weekend in order to be more productive, but I don't suppose this is cheating, since I didn't say "no Blogger". I finished reading Over Sea, Under Stone by Susan Cooper a few days ago, but I still haven't posted about it. It was enjoyable to re-read it - I actually enjoyed it more this time than the first time I read it. Now I'm reading The Picture of Dorian Gray and The Dark Is Rising - alternately, depending on my mood. (When I'm not studying, that it.)

Anyway... We lose an hour of catnaps tonight because of the silliness that is Daylight Savings Time, which makes me very very sad.

I do wish you and Stephel and RobbbieDobbbie and anyone else who experiences Daylight Saving Time all the time, and thinks it's silly, would come up here and talk some sense into the people who are always harping that it would be so much better for us if we went on Daylight Saving Time like "everybody" else. I lived in a DST place for three years, and that was enough DST for me. I really like not changing my clock. And I don't get cheated out of an hour's worth of catnaps every spring (do the Brothers get an extra hour of catnaps in the fall?)

(P.S. -- I didn't come over here on the weekend, because I thought that no Vox would mean no Blogger, too. Silly me...)

Heehee, I cheated. I also spent quite a bit of time reading Vox posts without commenting this weekend, so my productivity didn't exactly skyrocket.

The extra hour of Fall napping isn't really meaningful to the Miao Brothers because they sleep right through it! They never even notice.

But the hidden benefit to DST is that on the first day, they get brekkis 1 hour early.

I hope your home remains DST-free!
