time is twisted

did you set your clocks back?

Ladies and gents -

welcome to the end of daylight savings time, where those of us who observe this crazy ritual just lived through 1am twice and got an extra hour of sleep.  It's nicely timed for me who has to start getting up around 6a next week, but it still seems like a weird thing to do.

The year I lived in AZ was nifty, they don't do daylight savings.  However, because everyone else does it was still noticeable, mostly on the TV.  Because we would swing from Pacific to Mountain time, all of the cable channel shows I watched would suddenly shift by an hour.
