Oh No! Not THAT Time of Year

What do you mean I lose an hour of sleep? 

This weekend is the fiasco known as Daylight Savings Time for those of us who live in the States that insist on this madness.  You lose an hour of your weekend (and I am convinced, it's the start of "Fast Time" where you are actually losing an hour a day).  I don't know about the rest of you, but my weekends are sacred to me and the fact that I have to lose an hour of it just sends me into a rant the likes of which you would not believe.  Why don't we get to lose an hour of work time?  If that were the case, I'm sure this idiotic practice would soon be abolished.

Anyone ever harbor the thought about NOT changing your clock and continuing on in regular time?  I swear each year that I'm going to do it, but then I don't.  I just find myself rushing around even more then usual.  And don't tell me that it gives you an hour of daylight at the end of the day -- it's spring and summer people.  The days are naturally longer anyway -- you don't need to fool with the clock (and Mother Nature).

And by the way, the box in the above picture is about 8x8 inches in size (g).
