Booking Through Thursday

Clocks change this weekend here in the US, which means one less hour to read … does anybody else begrudge that hour like I do? Wish the Powers That Be would just pick a time-frame and stick to it instead of inflicting clock-driven jet lag on an innocent public twice a year?

(Yeah, so not a question so much about reading … except, of course, you do need to use your electric light to be able to read, so the hour it gets dark IS relevant!)

Over here in Finland, we also have to change the clocks, except that for us that happens at the end of March. Here we call it either Summertime or Wintertime and I can’t even say how preposterous it is to call late March and early April “Summer” when most years there’s snow on the ground and sometimes we even still get blizzards.

I really don’t like the clock changes because most of my clients live in other time zones and it’s hard enough to try to figure out the times, for deadlines not to mention phone calls…, with the ordinary time differences. Throw in the idiotic clock changes and I’m spending twice more time figuring things out.
