Okay. So generally, I find Daylight Saving Time to be a little confusing and a little annoying. I enjoyed getting that extra hour back, but I didn’t like giving it up in the Spring so that’s sort of a moot point. I changed all my clocks, except the car radio which I struggle with for weeks before I find the directions. The best part is that it’s done until the second Sunday in March, phew! And then I started wondering if we were the only people crazy enough to mess around with DST adjustments twice a year. Surprise! We’re not! I found a website with a page on which other countries are playing along with the madness… very interesting stuff.

What is *not* interesting but *is* disturbing, is turning on the television -after reading the newspaper but before snacking on Halloween candy- and I found… a Christmas themed movie! Shocked! Dismayed! Less that twenty-four hours after having spooky butterflies and eerie Jedi knights ask me for candy, I’m watching a woman realize that love is the most powerful gift of all. (Okay, I’m not totally sure what the movie was about since I didn’t watch it. It was November 1st! Too soon! Too soon for my most favorite sappy Christmas movies! Erg!) The upside of the too soon Christmas shows? The upside is that I’ll have lots more quiet reading time as I am now officially afraid to turn the television back on for a bit. Maybe I’ll read one of these:

Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolarz
The Splendor Falls by Rosemary Clement-Moore
Ends of the Earth by Tim Downs
The Perfect Christmas by Debbie Macomber
The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters
Calumet City by Charlie Newton
The Christmas List by Richard Paul Evans
Mennonite in a Little Black Dress by Rhonda Janzen
The Song is You by Megan Abbott
Blue Moon: The Immortals by Alyson Noel
Heretic Queen by Michelle Moran

Hmm, maybe I’ll start with The Perfect Christmas
