An awful way to spend 1/7th of your life.

Monday, 2005 update: The day after the football game.

AP3 said...

... come to think of it, it's the day after the football game and the day of the evening football game....

Doug said...

Icy, it's a dog's life.

Anonymous, I'm up to 5/7.

Aral, I had the same reaction when I read Bierce's definition. Good joke, wrong sport.

Monday: During the school year, the day that most distiguishes stay at home parents from their working counterparts, as it evokes anticipation versus dread.

Sar said...

Happy Birthday Dddragon! :)

Doug said...

Sar, it's also the day when Doug sometimes needs a couple tries to write his post.

Monday, Monday...can't trust that day. Monday from the original mundane. Only day of the week with its own color: Blue

Happy birthday darling daughter.

Monday's child is fair of face?

Minka said...

Montag, the day of the week hated internationally the most. Comes right after Sunday and never really had a chance of becoming any good!

Happy birthday dddragon!

weirsdo said...

Day of the moon, when all the lunacy begins again.

Doug said...

Tan Lucy, I love what you're doing with etymology here. You'll have to teach me at some point.

No doubt, Rio. Sunday's child is ugly as a mud fence.

You raise an excellent point, Monika. What chance do you have when your older sister's the Sabbath? Come to think of it, you're one of seven yourself, aren't you?

Weirsdo, I can only imagine how home schooling amplfies that.

Monday, n. The greatest of the proofs used by Philosphers to establish Man's supremacy. While the lion lazes in the shade of a bilbao on the African veldt, foolishly unaware that Sunday is over, Man rises early, takes to the freeways, clocks in, industriously spends his allotted 8+ hours in productive endevour, clocks out, returns to the freeways, arrives home after dark, kisses his wife and children, and goes promptly to bed. He may pause on the way to glance at a program on the Nature Channel, and note with smug satisfaction how fortunate that he is not trapped in the dreadful monotony of the lives of the less elevated of God's Creatures.

Mondays: made more miserable when when it happens to be rainy, and thus becomes the subject of songs. Made okay when cake and ice cream are presented.

THX for all the birthday wishes!!

Jamie Dawn said...

I'll drop by ddd's blog and wish her a good one.

Mondays are the kick-off days for sinning. Sundays are when we go to church, pray and confess all those sins we started accumulating the previous Monday through Saturday.

Doug said...

a4g, that and the opposable thumb for warming while we're there. The cubicle is just an indoor baobob tree in my opinion.

And happy birthday again. What kind of cake was it? Is there any left?

JD, that's funny. One of the options I thought of for an update was the day we replenish our forgiven sins. I couldn't come up with a good enough sentence. You did. *bow*

actonbell said...

Monday is hung over from the weekend. Not too fair of face, I wouldn't think...

LeesahEm. said...

Monday-the day responsibility and reality join together to pimp slap you and force you back on the streets.

Minka said...

Doug, indeed I am one of seven siblings. But I am the oldest and always had the feeling that all the other six have to live up to me ´cause I did everything first: steps and stuff, when my siblings did it years later my mom would think:
"Yeah, but what else is new!"
I am also the only one who was born on a Sunday :) I should check if either of my siblings was born on a Monday. Hey, maybe we have one for each week!

Minka said...

that is weekday, I meant to say!

Doug said...

Boy, people sure are funny on Monday. Depression does that.

Actonbell, I like to think dark rings show off my eyes and make me look purdy.

Haha, Masil. Ow!

Monika, clearly I meant me. My father always told me I was lucky I was born before 9am so he didn't have to choose between his first-born son and the football game. As the first-born of Seven you should sympathize with Monday.

Sreekesh! Behind every great failure is a Monday.

a4g said...

Doug, the problem with Google is that when you have this gnawing feeling that 'bilbao' isn't the name of the tree you're remembering, you manage to 'check your facts' via an internet full of other dolts who've made the same error.

Baobob. Now I can sleep tonight without my brain itching.


And here I thought the problem was the Ombu tree.

pia said...

Monday: the day of the week you put off making dreaded appointments, because the "dentist's receptionist is too busy, " "the cable company won't pick up," etc., and then you're stuck making 20 appointments on Tuesday, and end up confusing the cable company with the dentist

Sreekesh Menon said...

ah and imagine that most desirable smile, that beams monday night football.

Doug said...

a4g, that link takes me to a movie of In Search of The Castaways. Other than the fact that it stars two Wilfrids (which is an extraordinary cinematic accomplishment) what was I supposed to know or notice?

Pia, be careful, my friend. I don't think you want fox news in your molars.

Sreekesh, Monday Night Football and a desirable smile never coincide. You're kidding yourself.

GABRIEL C. ZOLMAN said...

You should have saved this one for Tuesday out of spite.

Monday, n. The worst day of the week until 6:00 EST, when Stargate Monday begins.

Fred said...

Monday: Football from close of work day 'til dawn of new day.

karma said...

best known as the day immediately after Sunday

karma said...

hhhappy birthday dddragon!

Doug said...

Gabriel, God bless your heretic soul. I almost did this one last Thursday.

Goa'uld, I can set my clock by you!

Fred, I'm seeing a trend.

Karma, I think that may be correct. Doesn't always feel that way, though. And thanks.

Hi, I was just looking around some blogs and checking different templates for ideas. Good blog with a nice template. I can start my own blog on Subliminal Messages thanks to your blog. I will visit weekly by the way. Like your ideas.

Mondays: The day they should have taken back instead of Sunday.

I forgot: Happy birthday to Dddragon!
Monday is increasingly a repository for holidays. Today seems to be Spam Day. Hope Blogger is picking up the trash.

Doug said...

Anonymous #1, I'm glad to have cleared your path to subliminal messages.

Anonymous #2, I'm happy fat. You're fired.

Alice, we should organize Justice Monday. Just for the day off.

Anonymous #s 3,4,5 a pox!

Weirsdo, I agree.

Monday: Just six days 'til church!

Doug said...

Just so, Soapy, unless you go to Wednesday night bible study.

karma said...

in my school (a convent, run by god-fearing nuns) if someone's slip (we had to wear those, Freudian or not)peeped from under her uniform, we would say, 'Your Sunday is longer than Monday'.

Amen

Doug said...

Karma, that's really funny. And explains a lot.
