if I could turn back time…oh, wait! I can!

today’s song, clocks, by coldplay serves as a public service announcement, reminding you to set your clocks back one hour.
but why do we do this on a sunday? it would be so much better on a monday, because if there is one day during the week when I could use an extra hour of sleep, it’s monday. try as I might, I simply cannot find the motivation to rise and start another week of work. I have no problem at all getting up at 7 am on a sunday, when it’s my time to spend–enjoying my coffee, catching up on reading, knitting, or playing with the cats (I live on the wild side). but rising early so I can go earn money to keep me housed, clothed, and fed? notsomuch.

one thing that confuses me though is the on/off switch for daylight savings. this is mainly a problem when I’m resetting a vcr (remember those?) or tv. I’m not a stupid person, but I don’t understand. are we on daylight savings time when it is lighter longer, and off of it when it’s dark earlier? and while we’re on the subject, who excused arizona from partaking of this semi-annual event?

here are 10 more songs appropriate for today:
time is on my side – the rolling stones
too much time on my hands – styx
time (clock of the heart) – culture club
praying for time – george michael
continents of time – eddie from ohio
seconds – u2
wasting my time – default
do you have a little time – dido
time has come today – chambers brothers
sour times – portisehead
