Random Tuesday Thoughts
Can someone please explain to me the benefits of daylight savings time? When I head to work in the morning, it’s now brighter; however my drive home is now shrouded in darkness. Great, now I feel like I’ve worked an hour extra of overtime, without pay. *sigh*
I’m technology challenged and apparently lazy too. I can’t figure out how to change the clock in my car, so for the next 5 months, I’ll have to remember to subtract 1 hour and add 3 minutes to the time indicated. Previous to this daylight savings time thingy, I only had to remember to add the 3 minutes. One would think, I could just read the manual and figure it out, but hence the lazy part… God, I’m so confused.
Now that the colder, darker weather has arrived, I’ve lost interest in salads and exercising. This is a recipe for disaster on its own, but to top things off, my only food interests of late are based solely on the food groups of carbohydrates and gravy. If I had to guess, I’d say it’s hereditary and has something to do with some scientific unexplained genetic hibernation traits of northern dwelling land-based mammals. Keep in mind, I’m not a scientist, so who the hell actually knows what my problem is.
I’ve also lost interest in shaving my legs on a daily basis. This one – I’ll outwardly blame on my fear of purchasing razor blades from Wal-Mart, but truthfully I suspect it also has something to do with the cold, dark weather and some deep-seeded method of self-preservation in winter climates. I know! *ewww*
I’ve been thinking about taking a *ahem* “sick” day for the sake of it, but with all this talk of swine flu and H1N1, I’m worried that karma will bite me in the ass and with my luck, karma will actually have the swine flu.
