Insert Anti-Time Change Rant Here. I'm Not Awake Enough Yet.

You know what's fun? When you have to switch from working a lot of nights to working a 12-hour day shift, which you know you aren't really physiologically prepared for, so you set your alarm clock to wake you up only about an hour before you have to leave for work, to maximize sleeping time. And then, after finally falling asleep after a really, really bad night, you wake up to discover -- eventually -- that your alarm clock helpfully set itself back off of daylight savings time. A week ago, on the date that was scheduled to happen when you bought the thing. Only you didn't notice, because, of course, you were on nights and didn't need it for a week, and you usually keep the damned thing covered with a pillow because otherwise even with the dimmer switch on the clock face is too damned bright and shines in your face all night. Plus, you are pathetically unobservant.

I believe the appropriate phrase is: FML. Also, "time to get a new alarm clock."

Miraculously, though, I still managed to make it to work more or less on time. I think I deserve some kind of award for that.


  1. It's all due to the United States Congress turning into Time Lords :)

  2. They are all pompous jerks. All they need are some goofy giant collars. :)

  3. Now I understand why Daleks hate humans so much.

  4. Mostly, I think they're just jealous of our ability to sit down. :)
