I've been reading all these complaints about DST in the past few days...

First off, let me remind you that I am an American who is living in Germany. And second, I'm a digiscrapper. An obsessive digiscrapper. So, from that framework, I interpret DST as the website Digishop Talk. So imagine my surprise when I see all the buzz on Facebook from gals I didn't know scrapped who started posting things like "DST bites" or "Thanks, DST, for making my Monday even better..." and then a bunch of GUY friends posted stuff like "I hate DST".


Now I know Digishop Talk has had some issues with its gallery in the past few months, but really? I wondered how the word had spread to the point that it had any type of impact on the non-scrappers and their husbands.

Well, now that it is TUESDAY, a lighbulb suddenly went off as I was reading my sister's blog. I finally realized that the DST that all these people were referring to is Daylight Savings Time.

When you are done laughing (or shaking your head) at my idiocy, just be aware that I am usually pretty good at understanding what people say - in context. However, since DST (the time change) does not take place in Europe until the last weekend of March, that usual context was lost on me.

Just thought I'd share. :)
