Now whenever I see someone having a good time at work I can accuse them of having a case of the Fridays.
I think T-Bone Walker knew that a long time ago.
Thank Science it’s Friday! (well, in another four days…)
Where I went to college, Wednesday evening was affectionately known as mini-Friday.
My Dad liked Tuesdays, since they were the furthest away from another Monday.
Researchers concluded that the results were likely due to the fact that everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend, partyin’, partyin’ (yeah!), partyin’, partyin’ (yeah!), fun, fun, fun, fun.
While Arthur Dent never could get the hang of Thursdays, it’s always been my opinion that Tuesdays are the worst. Mondays have the excuse of being Mondays. Wednesdays are the half-way point. On Thursdays, you can at least say that tomorrow is Friday. But Tuesdays? No redeeming value whatsoever.
Tuesday is also the funniest day of the week for joke-telling purposes.
A truism that Wimpy readily understood, but John Landis
always seemed to miss.
This was intended to confirm the hypotheses put forward by Smith et al. twenty years ago: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wa2nLEhUcZ0
In related news, I hear a team in Canada is close to proving that the weekend is “totally not long enough.”
I’ve started referring to weekdays as: First Monday, Second Monday, Hump Monday, Last Monday, and Friday.
According to the Book of Genesis, the only day that God did not declare to be good was the second day. In other words, God hates Mondays.
