I just got a telephone call from A. reminding me that Daylight Savings Time is going to start early this year. March 11th to be exact. You are probably wondering why is this significant and why is she sharing this bit of minutiae from her boring life.

I am sharing this because I don't thing there is another human being that HATES DST the way that I do. The thoughts of having even more weeks of this abomination makes me want to shriek.

I do not like it being light out at 9:00 at night. It's not normal. DST reminds me of summer, which I also hate. Combine asthma with having only a teaspoon of estrogen in your body and living in a freakin' swampland and you probably would not like summer either.

And it also has always urked the living hell out of me that we humans feel the need to manipulate every freakin' thing there is to our supposed advantage.

And as they pass, turn back and laugh at me."
