Jet-lagged... and no one even left home
How I used to luv Tarzan movies... all in glorious black & white. They were like graphic novels for film. Very few words... the action was all understood. Even Cheetah the chimp could understand what was going on... (though chimpanzees have lately been given a bad reputation by certain politicians).
Today is that dreadful day of the year when the genius politicians decided we working people should all wake up one hour earlier!
Virtually everyone I've met today is grouchy... the grocers couldn't count the change... everyone in line looked like they were sleepwalking.
Even Blogger isn't working today... all day long it's been out of commission. Everyone is yawning everywhere I go... it's just plain dumb.
An entire grouchy jet-lagged nation. Leave the time alone! That's what I says.
p.s. If politicians were serious about saving energy they would mandate a 55 mph speed limit, like Nixon did in the 1970's. It is astonishing that I have never once heard this basic sensible idea mentioned in the last 5 years in any discussion to do with being Green or energy savings.
Truly the world's most ironic bumper sticker reads: "I never thought I'd miss Nixon". But he looks like a liberal environmentalist compared to the mindset in power today.
