“It is <i>way</i> too dark. I'm getting really tired of how dark it is.

It's been just kind of a miserable, blah day and I've been playing with my telephone and decided I would make an LJ phone post, especially since, now that I'm on my way home and I don't have a computer under my hands, I can't make a text post.

So, anyway. Like I said, I'm tired of the dark and it's still several months before the dark is gone away.

Too dark in the mornings!

I have serious problems getting up at 7AM like I'm supposed to. I don't wake up until around 7:20 ish when the sun actually peaks into my window. This is crazy considering my 3 alarms start going off around 6:30. I have learned to sleep through them though.{:o\ This does not bode well for January. What I need is a wake up service. I always wake up to my phone ringing.

I wish I could afford one of those timed full spectrum lights.

Know what you mean - Sunrise/sunset here today are 8:02am and 3:58pm. So I guess yesterday must've been the sesquinox (made-up word to indicate 1.5x as much night as day)....

This is the time of year when I miss working in London (sunrise/sunset today 7:28am/4:04pm), a whole 400 miles further South. And last week I was up in Inverness (sunrise/sunset times 8:13am/3:52pm), another 200 miles further North.

Dark is Not Good.

Still, the advantage to the more extreme seasonal swing is the extended daylight in Summer - coming out of a pub at night to discover it's still twilight, or watching the sunrise while walking back from a (not all that late) party (Edinburgh 4 July sunrise/sunset 4:37am/10:01pm) - I'm a firm believer in the concept of sunrise as a n end-of-day marker.

Gah! For 1.5x above, please read 2x.... So not sesquinox at all. Bother!
