My morning...

4:50am   *Alarm goes off*

Brain:  Get up!  Get up!  Dammit, I hate losing an hour.  I want my hour back!  Screw Daylight Savings!

Arms:  Oof.  Go back to sleep.  We haven't recovered yet.

Brain:  But I remembered to make you put on your new Lidocaine patches!  Aren't they working yet?  Those bastards cost money!

Arms:  Hmph.  Not when you forget to wake up and give us more pills every four hours.  Besides, they came off halfway through the night.  Don't you remember?

Brain:  Not really - I was asleep; you were on autonomic nerve response (24 hours a day/365 days a year - like AAA, but faster response times).  But anyway - nothing?

Arms:  Wha'?  Gerroff.  We're sleeping; talk to us in two hours.  

Brain:  Get UP!!eleventy!!!

Arms:  Fuck you.

Legs:  Okay, okay!  We're up!  Dressing!  Shoes!  Arms, hop to it, or we're going out in the cold without a sweater.

Arms:  Yeah, yeah, yeah.  The abuse we take.  I don't know why we put up with it.  Give us more pills.

FWIW, I got a batch of patches with bad adhesive once, and put medical tape over them, and all the way around my arm, just to keep the suckers on.

Actually, they do stay on - I just put them on right after my shower, so they didn't stick as well as usual.

However, I honestly can't tell whether they're working or not. I haven't noticed a difference.

Well, at least they didn't make it *worse* right? ;)

My condolences. F-in' time change!

I am especially bitter because it no longer evens out - becuase of the new DST policy, I have actually lost about a month and a half of extra sleep.

Bitter, I tell you.

er, in the actual hour I lost, about a day and a half. But you know what I mean. :P

Yes. I understand completely. The new policy (shakes fist DC-wards) really messes with communications with my European customers. And just when they seem to figure out when it's is business hours here, their time changes and we're screwed up again.

Plus this morning I really needed to be "up and at 'em" at 6am but instead it was dark and too early and I couldn't pull myself out of bed.

Bugger, bugger, bugger!

I lived in Japan for a year. No time change. And guess what? No one died...

Thank you for the invitation, Ari. But I'm a tried-and-true Nor'easter. I like it green and lush, with four seasons, and only one of them hot. Matter of fact, the only season I'd gladly give up is the hot one.

I'll second that thought anyday, even on these ice-storm filled ones!

But not really. I'm just tired of being cold (and I live in Maryland - I am such a whiner)

*snicker!* You definitely don't want to live in Canada then! Some areas were got over a foot of snow on Friday/Saturday- even the Ottawa people (who laugh at the pitiful snow levels elsewhere in the province) were saying it was bad, which means it's time to go and hibernate for a few weeks. ;)

I understand...I live in St. Louis, most of my flist is way north of me, and I figure they're all laughing mercilessly at me when I whine about the horrible winter we've had...

I had a slightly similar conversation with my hip this morning :)
