Daylight Savings Sleep Day
So this morning someone called me at like 9:30AM and it woke me up. I had fallen asleep with the phone like right next to my head so when it rang it freaked me out. A friend of mine was calling to talk about whatever and I started yelling at him about how he can't be calling me at no 9:45AM on Sunday! I told him how 10:30AM is the minimum for calling me in the morning! After I was done with my rant he told me it was already 10:45! and how it was daylight savings. Then I continued to argue about how there is a 24 hour grandfather clause with my 10:30 rule at daylight savings- but I could see that I couldn't instate my grandfather clause retroactively that way to win the argument. Especially in my hazy mindset. So I just hung up.
I had a really hard time adjusting to the new time as usual. My kitchen clock, vcr clock, bedroom alarm clock, my watch. Everywhere I looked the time was wrong. Except for my computer and cable box which were right. I kept remembering and forgetting then remembering what time it really was. I couldn't mentally adjust. And somehow I found myself getting really tired. It was only noon (real noon not the fake noon) and I found myself getting back into bed, under the covers and going to sleep.
When I woke up it was 3:30PM (real 3:30 not fake 3:30) and I was like whoa. What the hell just happened? It wasn't like I did anything last night. I did get a good night's sleep. What's with the sleepin? I put on sweatpants and shuffled all Ozzyish to the kitchen and got a big glass of water. I looked at my kitchen clock and thought about changing it and decided against it. Why? I have no idea. It takes two seconds to change and it wasn't like I was busy or anything. Maybe I was subconsciously trying to hold onto the time that seemed right for me. So instead I grabbed a bag of baby carrots out of the fridge and shuffled back across my apartment and just found myself getting back in bed. Again! I watched some news while eating carrots and somehow that made me sleepy again.
When I woke up and it was like 6:00PM! I was real hazy and a little freaked about my day of sleep but I was finally awake. I haven't slept a day away in a really long time and feel great right now. Something about that frickin daylight savings time did some kind of weirdo headtrip on me and made me sleep all day (or was that my secret excuse to get away with guilt-free lazing because I had this weak excuse...?... maybe....)
But I finally have accepted what time it really is and maybe while I'm wide awake at 4:30AM tonite (as I'm sure I will be) I'll find the time to actually change the clocks and make it official.
