The eyes have it

  • 11 March 2005: srah develops an addiction to under-eye concealer
  • 10 March 2008: srah buys some kind of lotions and potions at the store in an effort to combat under-eye dark circles and puffiness.

Is there something about this time of year that causes me to suddenly evaluate the state of my eyes?

Maybe it's because the sun's finally starting to come out, so there's enough light to see my huge puffy dark circles with.

Maybe it's because spring is coming and I am preparing myself cosmetically to emerge, beautiful and butterfly-like, from my wintry cocoon.

Maybe it's because stupid Daylight Saving Time adjusted the sunshine and confused my equilibrium so I never go to bed early enough anymore, causing even more puffiness and dark circles than usual.

Did you know that Daylight Savings Time messes up animals. They of course, do not have an alarm clock, but rather judge time internally by the sunrise and sunset. When farmer Bob comes out to milk his cows at 5am, just like he always does, the cows freak out, because it is an hour earlier to them. Milk production in the US actually suffers for a couple weeks because of this. Crazy stuff. I never liked Daylight Savings anyway...but this just makes me despise it.

Farmer Bob's cows are too set in their ways. He shouldn't let them get on a schedule. He should just sneak up and milk them when they least expect it.

Thank you Srah for saying Daylight Saving Time not Daylight Saving[s] Time, and additional kudos for capitalizing it!

That is all Gretchen's and Ken Jennings's influence at work! I didn't know any better until a couple of days ago.
