Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to introduce you to Lexi. She’s my connection to you, friends. She’s my new laptop. I was going to post a picture of my pretty, but she isn’t fully dressed just yet. Once her dress gets here, I promise to share.
So, you know how Arizona doesn’t change their clocks? Well, there are some politician-type people here that want to see Colorado do the same thing. While Arizona stays on Standard time, there are proponents for staying on Daylight Savings time here (as well as for Standard time). I can’t even begin to tell you how much I would love it if we stayed on DS all year round.
I know I’m not alone. Tons of people are active here and keeping that extra hour of daylight could make a huge impact in quite a few areas. Let’s save the environment! I can’t wait until the time changes again so I can ride my bike to work. From what I’ve seen of winter here so far, I could be riding my bike to work a heck of a long time if it were not dark when I left work. And I would have the best legs ever!
Think of the boon for ski resorts. An extra hour that they could stay open if they didn’t have lights. More twilight sessions, (crossing fingers for) folks spread out a little bit and making it a little less crowded, more time on the slopes giving a better feeling of getting your money’s worth, I could go on and on.
Keep those kids active! That’s an extra hour of daylight to go out and play. That is, if kids still go out to play. Work off some of that extra energy so the parent(s) can get a little rest after a long day of work. On weekends, give that outdoorsy family an extra hour to hang out together. Bonuses abound.
Ok, maybe I just want it for me. Yes, that’s it. I want it for me. I’ll admit it.
*completely unrelated sidebar* Go to Outback and have a Gingerbread Cookie Martini. Know what? Sit at the bar and have the Ahi Tuna appetizer and the Gingerbread Cookie Martini. You’ll be glad you did. I want to go there now just thinking about it. But I really love Ahi. And salmon. Sushi. Sashimi. Carpaccio. Edamame. Fortune cookies.
Sorry, I warned that these wouldn’t necessarily be cohesive until I got back into writing. I was doing well but started to stray so that’s my cue to wrap it up. Until later……. peace, love, and chicken grease.
