My six year-old daughter summed up the joys of springing forward for daylight saving's time nicely this morning. We were both a little punchy.

Me: We change our clocks for Daylight Saving's Time twice a year. This weekend we moved our clocks forward and we have to go to bed earlier and get up earlier. In October we'll change our clocks again, but we'll move them back. That means we'll get to stay up late and get up late.
Daisy: (disbelieving) Stay up late AND get up late?
Me: Yep. That's in October.
Daisy: (slumping back, dreaming blissfully) Oh, man, I could use a big ol' fat one of those right about now.

Amen.

Meanwhile, I write this from the shoulder-to-shoulder sardine can of a San Francisco court house. It's Jury Duty time! Actually, it's more like Line Duty or Wait Duty so far. This bites.
