  Pretty bright guy...wonder what he thinks about DST.
I was getting my daily news fix and I read an article on the Dalai Lama. One line in particular caught my eye and made me want to write something.

The Dalai Lama said, "It is fascinating. In the West, you have bigger homes, yet smaller families; you have endless conveniences -- yet you never seem to have any time. You can travel anywhere in the world, yet you don't bother to cross the road to meet your neighbors,".

All to true for most of us. I have a pretty big home and only two kids. I wanted to make sure I had nothing to do with the population explosion.

Do any of us have as much time as we really want or need? I mean, come on, we just lost an hour the other day! And how come daylight savings time happens in the middle of the night in the middle of the weekend? Why not adjust the clocks at noon on Friday? I mean, it is DAYLIGHT saving time, so why do I feel like someone stole an hour from me Saturday night? I lived in AZ for 4 years, no Daylight Savings Time there. I never had to change the clocks, but I always had to readjust my TV viewing habits. The clocks didn't change, but all the times of all the programming changed twice a year.

I guess I have a problem with DST because it doesn't seem to make any difference to me. I get up early every day. I was up before the sun on Friday morning and I was up before the sun on Sunday morning too. I think if I had something to do that required daylight, I'd just adjust my schedule to make it happen during daylight! This is like changing the clock on someone who's always late. Instead, we're faking out everyone, making them think it's earlier than it really is!

The only good thing I can come up with after changing my clock is that my body thought it was earlier than it really was while I was watching the Soprano's last night...Paulie's gonna get wacked!!!!!
