Okay, I've had enough sunshine

Today is the first day of DST or whatever they call it - last night we turned the clocks ahead and this morning it was still dark when I got up and here it is 6 pm and you'd swear it was the middle of the afternoon! This is SO wrong - in the morning it should be light and in the evening it should be dark. Why have they turned my little world upside down! This is a vicious and nasty trick to play on an old woman...I want names and addresses - I want heads to roll - I want this to stop - Right now! I want to turn around and look out the window and see that it is getting dark and tomorrow morning when I get up at 7 am it damn well better be light out.

I don't actually WANT to get up at 7 am but I have to, and if I have to then I at least want to be able to see! Christ, how long has this nonsense been going on? Wait, don't tell me - every year since I was born? (Maybe before that too, but since I wasn't here, I don't care) Why have I never noticed this before?

I'm tired and cranky - I didn't get enough sleep last night and when I woke up this morning it was still dark!!! And it was late! Late in the morning and still dark! This is bullshit!
