Spring Forward, Sleep Back
March 7, 2008 at 8:20 AM (PT)
ALL ACCESS regrets to inform everyone who values maximum sleep that on early SUNDAY morning, MARCH 9th, the good citizens of this nation shall lose a previous hour of sleep as the clocks are set forward by one hour.
The benefits of this move are that we'll enjoy an hour more of sunshine. Birds will sing. We'll be able to bask in the sun an hour longer. The drawbacks of this move are that we'll try to sleep through an hour more of sunshine. Birds will squawk. We'll be unable to hide under our covers an hour longer.
Nevertheless, ALL ACCESS recommends you promptly turn your clocks ahead. You don't want to be late for work ... unless, of course, you need a good excuse to be late for work.
