Yesterday, n. The infancy of youth, the youth of manhood, the entire past of age.

2006 Update: The dormitory to which we confine our sins until needed.

Yeah baby yeah! I am early to the party! Go boho mama go! Wooooooooooohooooooo! Calls for a song! Beatles anyone? Sing along now!

All my troubles seemed so far away,
Now it looks as though they're here to stay,
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

I'm not half the man I used to be,
There's a shadow hanging over me,
Oh, yesterday came suddenly.

Why she
Had to go I don't know, she wouldn't say.
I said,
Something wrong, now I long for yesterday.

Love was such an easy game to play,
Now I need a place to hide away,
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Douuuuug: Oh, I haven't been around for a while :( My DSL wasn't working and...Well, anyway, I'm BACK and I miss you so much. How is it goin'?

Miz Bohemia: I was going to write those letters since this is one of my fave songs ever.

Yesterday: Another day that passed you by. Another lost chance. Another time and place. The difference between day and night, one life and another. Happy memories. Loved ones we won't again see. Mad wrath now cooling down. Things that made no sense and now do. We call all this by the name "yesterday".

Yesterday...A word overused by me.

~Daydreamer~ said...

Miz Bohemia: *not letters, I meant LYRICS. (Coffee again please, I'm still sleepy!)

karma said...

the past is tense

xdtbd: 'x' was dated before, Dougster?

karma said...

oh, hi Dad!

mireille said...

What separates one bout of insomnia from another. xoxo

Alice: In Wonderland or Not said...

yesterday:a synonym for the trash bin.

Doug said...

Hey, Pop! Good morning!

Miz B, I knew that was coming and there's no-one I'd rather have bring it.

Marwa, great definition. Glad the DSL let you through. Do you take milk?

Double-x, Karma.

Schools almost done, Mireille.

Minka said...

Tomorrow=dreamy, Yesterday=sorrow...that means NOW must be opportunity for either one of those!

Indeterminacy said...

I did a good comment yesterday, so I'll sit out today. I couldn't top the cool dialogue going on here today, anyhow. Maybe tomorrow?

SquareGirl said...

Yesterday is the day when I knew everything, and today is the day I realize I was wrong as it is actually today that I know everything, until tomorow.

Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday.*

*Addendum - this commenter reserves the right to recycle this fantastic quote should the word procrastination be featured in a future WA post. (However, if it has already been featured, this comment addendum never occurred...*poof!*)

Tom & Icy said...

Scrambled eggs...
That's what I had for breakfast today...

Rio said...

yesterday was plain awful
you can say that again
yesterday was plain awful
but thats not now thats then

Anonymous said...

Well...I had the song Yesterday in my head. Now...I have Annie. Excellent.

I was smarter yesterday than I am today but not half as brilliant as I'll be tomorrow.

And he who invented codeine laced cough syrup is a god. A god!

Doug said...

Actually, Monika, it means you should relax. Just don't paddle the canoe.

Sure Indie, see you when this is yesterday.

Squaregirl, the universe must be expanding. Good news for sure.

Great quote, Sar!

Excellent use of Beatle's trivia, Icy. Good girl!

Rio, did you write that? Great!

Bottoms up, Jenna.

pia said...

Yesterday is over. Today is what counts.

Probably why I'm having difficulty writing a memoir!

dddragon said...

Yesterday was the tomorrow of the day before that.


Omnipotent Poobah said...

yesterday - That day when I graduated from high school 33 years ago.

Funny thing is, I hated it then and I hate it now. Just for different reasons.

Kyahgirl said...

yesterday + 7 years, I was just a pregant woman. Then it all changed today! (+ 7 years) heh heh.

LeesahEm. said...

yesterday-one of the few things that looks better from behind.

The Phoenix said...

Yesterday - antonym of "relevant"

Anonymous said...

X, the chromosone for intelligence and competency I believe...some people (and most of our countries politicians) have one, other people have two.

Another Example


I thought it would be clever to post my comment in yesterday's comment box...but then...sobriety.

Yesterday, n. The hound which follows the hunter, while tomorrow follows today.


Doug said...

Haha, Pia! Very clever. If we could relive the past the memoirs would write themselves, right?.

Well, yeah Dddragon. Usually.

21 for me, Poobah. I'm glad I have at least 12 more not to get over it.

Kyahgirl, welcome to the future.

Haha, Masil. That's funny but there are more than you'd think.

Very good, Phoenix.

Anonymous, is that a repost from yesterday? Oh, I get it! Brilliant!

Jamie Dawn said...

Yesterday, I did no blogging except to visit one site... yours. It was a nearly blogless day, and yet I managed to survive it okay.

logo said...

yesterday~ the day I had something almost clever to add.
And now I have the Beatles and the music to Annie stuck in my head.

weirsdo said...

To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death.

shayna said...

Only yesterday when I was sad and I was lonely,
You showed me the way to leave the past
and all it's tears behind me.
Tomorrow maybe even brighter than today
since I threw my sadness away.
Only yesterday...

I have lost my voice so I am forced to sing in your blog... ;)

Love the "Carpenters"... :)

Doug said...

Jamie Dawn, I'm flattered.

Right, Logo and two days before your birthday, I reckon.

Is that Shakespeirsdo?

Shayna, that always reminds me of Tommy Boy.

Rio said...

no its from Annie the musical

Kay Richardson said...

Yesterday- PRE-HANGOVER. Damn those ladies.

Doug said...

Rio, the sun came up yesterday?

Ah, there you are, friend Kay. A little tomato juice would have helped that.
