Daylight Stealing Time

March 12, 2007

Journal, Lauren

Be sure to check out to read her questions about clocks!

Now to our story: Our cell phones came with many features, and my favorite one is that you can set three alarms. (I have a paranoia about oversleeping in the morning. Big surprise, huh?) Anyway, on Sundays I set alarms for 7:15 (the ‘warning’ alarm), 7:45 (the actual alarm), and 8:00 (the ‘you overslept’ alarm). Well, the cell phone people didn’t change their towers for Daylight Savings Time until sometime mid-afternoon, so I blame them for why we missed 9:00 church.

A lost hour

    Stupid time changes … I remember one year during the energy crisis, the time changed by 2 hours … what’s next? changing the day of the week? Go to bed on Saturday & wake up on Monday … how about jumping ahead a whole year or decade? Where will it all end?!?!?

    What are you doing trusting gadgets to get you up in the morning? Cell phones, computers, digital cameras, handheld devices -- they’re all passing fads. What you need is a good, old fashioned, wind up alarm clock!

    If we used wind-up clocks, I’d have to have ten of them and no one could sleep because of the TICK TICK TICK TICK.
