I feel like taking a vote right now between two choices:

  • I’m happy about the fact that the clocks are being rolled back so it will soon be dark too early in the afternoon.
  • I’m very unhappy about the fact that the clocks are being rolled back so it will soon be dark too early in the afternoon.
  • I think I lose no matter which way I vote. Certainly, I’m in the dark either way, and if I’m unhappy about it I’m wasting my time being unhappy, while if I’m happy about it I’m a deluded fool living in denial.
    Accept it. Fight it. Deny it.
    It’s still there, isn’t it?
    Hat tip to Dr. Helen, who’s honest enough to admit she has problems this time of year when they roll the clocks back, and asks a few questions about Seasonal Affective Disorder:

    Could SAD be culturally induced, caused by the media or companies who want to sell light therapy devices? Or is it real?

    I think SAD is bad, but rolling back the clocks is SADism.
    To me it’s like, isn’t it bad enough the summer’s over without the government rubbing salt in wounds?
