Sleepy?

There was a lot of talk last weekend about losing an hour of sleep for the daylight-saving time switch.  (You can see our report about it in last Friday's show.)  Now that you're in the middle of the first week of DST, how are you holding up?  Feel any effects of springing forward, like trouble staying awake in biology?  Or are you happy to have the sunlight around an hour longer in the evening?

    I was actually awake during the time change, which, brought an annoyance on it's own. After looking over at the clock and then taking another look a while later, I found myself baffled. With that, I spent an extra hour figuring our what happened to my hour. At the time, I thought DST came a bit later than it did. After finding out that it was DST that had devoured a portion of my night, I wanted both of my hours back.

    Now, the sun stays out another hour too late and I'm forced to get up even earlier in the day. I'm sure all 'night crawlers' who read this will agree: Time should be kept in it's fall back posistion.

    I almost missed my bus one day this week. Im used to waking up and it being light out. So when i woke up and it was dark i went back to sleep. Well i made it to the bus in time. I like the days being longer.

    Could you believe it selling a Triceratops to who ever could buy it sounds crazy if you ask me. I think they should just auction it to the museums in the U.S. Don't you think so?

    Our daylight saving will be on March 30th at 2 o' clock CET. That will be a sunday. Every year on that day, I get a feeling kinda like the jet lag you get after a long transatlantic flight. And because there's school on the following monday, it's hard to get up on time. Right now we have Easter holidays in Hamburg, so why is the DST at the last day of the holidays and not in the middle of it?

    I did fall asleep in biology. It wasnt so bad because the teacher almost did to. I would prefer to just keep the same sort of time year round.

    Let's get Congress to stop messing with the clocks! Leave them on Standard Time all year long. It's totally weak, and people are late to their jobs, miss flights, angry, etc. No more time change, we've had enough.
