alexandral: (Photos - Happy birthday)
And sadly, this is the first week of "British summer time", the one single thing that can be crowned as "Spoil alexandral's spring mood the most". I hate it, hate hate hate it. Hate is a strong word, but I just do not understand why do I have to go through with this nonsense year after year. I am generally not a morning person to start with, which may be the reason why the change in time tends to make me really tired for weeks.

I hear different arguments for summer time, each of them not without several arguments against:

1. We do it for the farmers! No - Apparently (as it was proved by some Australian farmers) time change affects cattle negatively. Biological clock of farm animal's goes haywire.

2. It is lighter and safer on the roads! No - if any people are like me, they are tired for weeks after the time change, hence prone to traffic accidents. I was that close to a traffic accident a couple of times this week. Plus: the traffic on Monday and Tuesday morning was HORRIBLE: everyone seemed to be running later than usual.

3. It helps to save the energy! I have looked into this: and no, no proven energy saving.

I want to immigrate to Australia, or simply go and protest.

PS; but it not all bad, of course. First of all: today is the birthday of the wonderful and knowledgeable [livejournal.com profile] trailer_spot.Happy BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Second of all: it is spring! The weather is finally warm (ish?) , daffodils are blooming all over the place : happy weekend, everyone!!!!!
