Once again, in my geographical location, I am forced to change time from Daylight Saving Time to Standard Time (thanks politicians). While one might think that it’s nice to get an extra hour of sleep (if one can), it is just one more thing that messes up our lives.
And so, in the wee hours of November 5th, 2017, I am (or thought I was) awake in the proverbial ‘hour difference’ between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. (2 a.m. is when the time changes officially in case you didn’t know) and with the artificial or rather abrupt change, I feel like I need to blog again, and let you know about my opinion and preferences in regards to this lousy situation, that somehow is ignored by many people (who are probably asleep) or at least accepted as part of life and inevitable.
Before I get too carried away with this rant (and news), I once again consulted Twitter for other sympathetic sentiments, and found a plethora of tweets that are tempting to add to my blog. And lo and behold, there were many posts to consider. And so, I yield to the lazy way of getting support (pretended or real) here.
Editors Note: My stream of consciousness, or what is sometimes called writing style, has been altered by this ridiculous time change, and the order of the images added here, with text, may or may not remain the same, as I may continue to change it here.
Also please note that links may appear in the caption area of the screen shots, that are displayed with underlined blue text just below the image in shaded grey.
I was going to add more tweets, but am finding that I’m getting tired again. The initial euphoria and excitement of having an extra hour to spend is wearing off.
However, I need to bring this topic closer to home — and found this article on CBC website.
After reading these articles, I am left to wonder again, why (bother)?
Perhaps, it’s this silliness that keep me going in blogging. And perhaps, that’s why I enjoy writing about Ground Hog Day as well.
Time is precious, mysterious, and confounding.
And lastly, I include more tweets for your reading and optional laughing or crying pleasure.
And lastly, here is my all time favorite meme — and to think, at 4:06 A.M M.S.T., I almost missed it.
