08:30 pm - Days of the Week
Due to exhaustion and/or rapidly advancing age, I have completely lost track of days of the week.

Today I texted my baby brother to send him a merry "Hurray, a week from now you'll be on vacation!" Which would be true if it were Thursday, but it is Wednesday.

Last week I sent an email reply to a friend, saying (again, merrily, for that's how we roll along) "Have a great Wednesday!" Which would have been nice, had it not been Thursday.

Obviously I can't do anything about the exhaustion, and it's not like the Small Blonde Dog is any help in this department (her named days being either Office!Treats!Love!Day or Sulking@home Day, the latter of which she cannot call until it's two hours past dawn and I'm still wearing yoga trousers, at which point Sulking goes live). Anyhoo.

I think, therefore, I should rename the days of the week. My options are right now:
*the Study Group from Community: Pierce (which would be Monday, right, because no one likes Monday), Troy, Abed, Britta, Jeff, Annie, Shirley.
*the Continents, but then I can't think of the proper order for the week: North America, South America, Asia, Europe, Africa, Antarctica, Australia. I don't dislike any continent enough to make it be Monday.
*the League of Golden-Age British Mystery Writers, except that I can only think of four: Marsh, Allingham, Sayers, Christie. (Can we go to a four-day week? Or who else would make up the proper complement of seven?)

And I would keep going, except that the phone is ringing and the dog is barking and did I say that I'm tired? 'Cos I am.

May all of you have the energy I lack, no matter what day it is where you are!

I like the four day week idea myself.

But only as long as at least two days are the weekend! ;-)

Happy whatever-day-it-is to you.

I'm confused about the days of the week this week, what with Monday having been a holiday. Plus I have this Friday off. So today feels both Tuesday-ish and Thursday-ish! :-)

Well -- Tuesday-ish, Thursday-ish, split the difference. ;-)

Hurrah for your short week! [hugs]

What about the dwarves?

Grumpy, Sneezy, Bashful, Doc, Dopey, Happy, Sleepy.

Days are hard. My work week started on a Wednesday this week, so I have no idea if I'm coming or going.

Grumpy totally = Monday. [nods]

Cheerful thoughts for a short week, even if it's not been a good one!

This week is already discombobulated, what with last Friday being a both-daughters-at-home day, and Monday having the entire family underfoot - I'm a day behind at least.

Maybe the days could be the colors of the spectrum, red orange yellow green blue indigo violet? If you started with Sunday, that would make Monday Orangeday, and orange is my least favorite color of the rainbow, because it's too bright and it looks horrid on me. Hmmm. I could live with that.

Please send my most respectful regards to SBD, and tell her to stop pouting, it's unbecoming to one of her magnificence.

Oh, the colors of the spectrum! I knew I'd forgotten something -- you are brilliant, even if a day behind. :-)

Good thoughts and a good day today (which is Blue)!

Cheers for you, and good Thursday-off, and hopes for no snow. :-)

I have the days of the week problem too sometimes. For some reason I'm always sure it's Tuesday or Thursday when it's Monday or Wednesday.

I can take your Golden-Age British Mystery Writers up to five if you include Josephine Tey. And then there's Gladys Mitchell who I've never actually read so I don't know whether she should count or not.

Hugs for the exhaustion.

Tey! Well, goodness, how did I forget her? (I am more dubious about Mitchell, because I haven't read her work either. ;-))

Cheers to you, K, and hugs and thanks.

Mitchell is fine on PBS Mystery but fares less well on the printed page for me...I might add Nicholas Blake, though. I considered Edmund Crispin, who can make me weep with laughter, but I think he's a little late for the Golden Age.

::Eying the new snow fall with some trepidation and planning to make the casserole now in case the power goes out again tonight::

Hugs and sympathy!

Ah, yes, Mitchell is the Mrs Bradley mysteries! I think you're right, ALH -- I loved Diana Rigg and Neil Dudgeon (and guest stars like David Tennant and Peter Davison!) but the stories didn't enthrall.

Warmth, power, and a good evening to you! [hugs]

I am deeply distrustful of Antarctica, so that should start the week, definitely. This may go with my distrust of penguins (have you met a penguin?) or it may be separate; I can't decide.

I'm currently packing in a most leisurely fashion, but if I reach the hotel early enough, I may formulate a post about issues I dislike in m/f romance (with examples from recent reads) and why my current read (also m/f and from the same publisher as one of those that annoyed me) is far superior in all respects.

Well, possibly Antarctica, except I have a friend who does environmental tours there, so I'd feel bad about putting down her spiritual home.

You might be right about the penguins. ;-)

Good thoughts for your weekend!

Hey, it's simple: it's always today.

Hope this one brings you some rest!

If only I were independently wealthy and then the days of the week wouldn't matter...

I hope the upcoming weekend helps you get the rest you need.

Independent wealth would certainly help, wouldn't it. ;-)

Cheers and a good day to you! (Whatever day it is.)

As you can imagine, my current life of leisure leaves me clueless as to the days of the week -- it's all Saturday, all the time, over here.

You'd think that would feel way better than it actually does.

I *love* the idea of re-naming the days, though. Shall have to think about which should be what. Wot?

H_P! [hugs and stuff]

Actually, I understand the somehow-not-idyllic feeling of all Saturday all the time. [hugs twice]

You could rename them after musicians, or 60s-Westerns characters ('Little Joe' would be Monday, obv), or...
May this be a pleasant contemplation for you! :-)

[hugs thrice]
