Time is time. It doesn't change.
The government doesn't control it. I've written about this before, but as you can see, I'm cranky from springing forward - AGAIN.
So why do we let them?
Why are we not lighting torches each spring and fall and loading up the train that goes under Parliament??
Because we are weak. From exhaustion. From the time change.
I understand time because I have animals. Also, I can see the sun, which apparently isn't visible from state and US capitols.
Animals are unaffected by idiot politicians, and so they provide me with an ability to tell time that is free of Congressional buffoonery.
Here's how it works. When the angle of light starts to change each year, my cats change their fur.
These cats live in a perfectly temperature controlled environment 365 days a year that is a constant, narrow range between 65 and 70 degrees. Their fur has no reason to bulk up and/or thin out based on temperature. It, like most things (insert deep symbolism here), responds to light and ONLY light.
My normally sleek little panther, Maddie, as the light changes at the end of summer, about doubles her fur volume, despite the fact that the temperature outside has not dipped below 100 degrees. It's actually really hilarious to see her in her little fur coat while we are fanning ourselves and going shoeless. But her fur knows what time it is.
The fur never lies.
Here, for example, is a sun ray exposing the scandalous truth about my black cat - she is not, in fact, black, but mostly a deep mahogany color that you can only see in bright sunlight.
The kind you get in March.
Without government intervention.
She's also busy shedding her little coat as she does each year on or about an equinox. Without the government.
I'm also capable of discerning when the sun comes up and goes down, which is what should govern our days. Not fatheaded idiots.
I've never met anyone who just RELISHED a time change, and so, to all of my friends, I say - YOU ARE FABULOUS. You complete me. We agree on everything. Now, join me in storming the capitol with torches.

I was SO excited yesterday (despite my cranky exhaustion from the time change) to see the new Sweetie Pie stamp set and the matching Sweetie Pie Frames - EEEEKKKKk so cute!!!
I had to not only expedite my order, but bust it out today at lunch and make a card.
Aren't these ADORABLE????
I'm going to have so much fun with these - but today I thought it would be fun to include all of them and make just one of them stand out to go with that fabby greeting.
I hope this brightened your day - I know you're as tired and cranky as I am. But you are fabulous. :)
