    If only I had know it were coming I could have been more prepared.

    Well, I learned this was tonight about 30 minutes ago. I have to work in the morning so I guess I better try to go to be a little earlier. Thanks Jenna!

    I had no idea. Somehow I'm betting my relief will be an hour late in the morning.

    Whoever thought of making up this daylight savings B.S. needs to be kicked in the nuts, or vajayjay if it was a female. I need my beauty sleep, its not easy being this damn sexy.
    Wise men stand behind me, brave men stand beside me, but only fools stand against me.

    The force that propels you to prevail when you are put to a test of survival will be a mindset that refuses to accept nothing but winning.

    Too often, we lose sight of life's simple pleasures. Remember, when someone annoys you it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown, BUT, it only takes 4 muscles to reach out and bitch slap that motherf*cker upside the head.

    He's lucky he's dead!

    George Vernon Hudson (20 April 1867 5 April 1946) was an English-born New Zealand entomologist and astronomer.
    ....
    Hudson is credited with inventing modern-day daylight saving time. His shift-work job gave him leisure time to collect insects, and led him to value after-hours daylight.[2] In 1895 he presented a paper to the Wellington Philosophical Society proposing a two-hour daylight-saving shift,[3] and after considerable interest was expressed in Christchurch, New Zealand he followed up in an 1898 paper.[4]

    You're telling me that some bug-hunter is the cause of this??!! I always heard it was to get more field work in after school back in the day. At least that made some kind of sense!!
