Remember that tonight you have to roll your clocks back an hour

Unless you're foreign or in Arizona

It isn't ideal, especially when your team is 0-7.

Bucs fans actually have something to look forward to on a week-to-week basis now that Freeman is starting. He's a young, exciting QB I'm going to enjoy following the rest of this season from afar.

And I thought waking up at 11 to watch the games was hard.

europe switches a week earlier, so like GOW I now have to wait till 2.30 or something like that for MNF.
At least the Irish game last night started an hour 'earlier' resulting in me only stayin up till about 4

Got in an extra hour of boozing last night/sleep this morning.

Gotta love that. Sadly, it will now get dark at like 6pm and be utterly depressing. What a stupid thing, can't we just stick to the "spring forward" time and have more sunlight later in the day? ******* Ben Franklin...

Yay we get to sleep in a hour!

Can't we just either spring forward a half hour or fall back a half hour and have it be done with?

We could and I'm sure most normal folks would go for that. The problem is that there are a lot of powerful industry/lobbying groups that don't want to see that happen.

Think about it: Companies that run Convenience stores, the Golf Industry, the Candy industry-they all have something to gain from DST. Their successful lobbying in Washington is the reason DST starts earlier and ends later now. They're the main reason you lose sleep in spring. It puts a lot of money in their hands.

I just took a nice 3 hour nap, so I'm all out of sorts right now. I almost started to get ready for class.

I'd rather it get dark later.

Yeah same, it always takes me a few days to adjust. I passed out at 7:30 today for a prolonged nap

Completely unrelated, but I went through a weird sleep walking phase a couple years ago where I did stuff like that.

I'd get out of bed, get dressed and everything, a couple times I'd even eat breakfast. Then I'd go to grab my phone and see it was like 3:13 am.

Sometimes that'd happen multiple times in one night. Those were really freaky.

Dude that used to happen to me...one time I took a shower, put my shoes on, ate a bowl of cereal, grabbed my bag and then stared at the clock. It took like 5 minutes for me to figure out what time it was. So messed up.

I used to sleepwalk real bad. Worst one ever involved me waking up behind the wheel of my car in my underwear. I swear if I had keys I would have driven in my sleep

Every yr it takes me a wk. or longer to adjust, so I'll be up at 3-4 AM & falling asleep before 10.
